I mean quite often I feel like female protagonists at least on TV are over the top. I also feel that these types of stories are dumb take TVD Elena is considered a strong and powerful female character but she spends more time getting rescued I mean really she's more of a plot device. My other issues are more focused on the treatment of male characters. Case in point Cole in Charmed and Aleister from Bitten both were severely mistreated yet it was never addressed not thoroughly anyway. I'm sure there are as many more examples of the reverse however I feel this is a growing trend.
