Both Jane and Maura can be tough, and smart, and sexy, and totally silly, and vulnerable, and scared. They can be all those things. That’s what I would love to see more of on TV — women that are represented the way they really are, three-dimensional, not the way we think we want them to be, the bombshell or the smart one or the dorky one. As an adult woman, I want to see them make adult decisions and behave and interact with other people in ways that are smart and interesting.

I am still in mourning for what this show started out to be, because it’s impossible to say it now reflects any of the above sentiments. I can only hope a new showrunner will turn it back around
I have been thinking about this recently too… literally MOURNING. I have been watching season 1 episodes lately, and it was SO. FILLED. WITH. POTENTIAL. It was actually interesting, like the crime! and it was dark and the humour wasnt just funny it was hilarious - and everything sasha said about the two women was true..
