Thursday 13 - Sexy Women of Television - 3/5/09

I have not done a Thursday 13 since it reemerged. Today, I decided to do one featuring 13 of the sexiest women from my life of television viewing. My image of them is frozen in time in a particular role. Some may not have aged as well as others, but I have noted the version of the star that put her on the list. This was hard to limit to 13, but I listed the first that came to mind. Victoria Principal – Dallas, Heather Locklear – TJ Hooker, and the woman that played the Borg on Star Trek nearly made the cut.

Marg Helgenberger – Still looks good on CSI, but most memorable on China Beach.

Linda Evans – Big Valley days, not Dynasty.

Kate Jackson – the most underrated angel.

Jenna Elfman – Dharma and Greg. Tall and sexy.

Adrienne Barbeau – Maude’s daughter and appeared on every game show on television due to her great assets.

Mitzi Kapture – Silk Stockings. Had the most beautiful mouth ever.

Linda Hamilton – the Beauty and the Beast. Long before Terminator.

Alyssa Milano – Charmed, not Who’s the Boss. I am not a pedophile.

Mariska Hargitay – Law and Order, daughter of Jayne Mansfield. Good genes.

Lynda Carter – Wonder Woman. Holy crap, she was beautiful.

Barbara Eden – caused a lot of boys my age to need glasses. "whatever you wish, Master."

Mary McCormack – Newest entry. Star of In Plain Site. Stunning and tough. The girl that plays her sister, Nichole Hiltz, is amazing too and worth a mention.

Baywatch Babes. Never actually watched the show, just watched them run during opening credits. Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra are the only names I know, but there were others. The most viewed television show in history in spite of the male lead being a dweeb.

Honorable mention:

Angela Cartwright – Penny from Lost in Space and The Sound of Music. She is one day older than me. I had a huge crush. Looking back, she was not so striking, but earned a mention for helping me through puberty. Her Lost in Space sister, Marta Kristen, was much hotter. I guess I figured she was too old and I didn't have a chance with her.

My, you've pulled them in from all over the place, crossing time and genres.

What no picture of me.....??? LOL

Seriously though, some iconic beauties there. What I find interesting with you is that many of your choice are outside the usual curve. I think another that should be on your list is Selma Hyak.... I would die for her looks. co

I like Selma Hyak ok but not sure she has ever starred in a TV show. I think she has been a bit player on a couple, but she is not known for television, thus not eligible for my list.

Thanks for the mammories oops - memories... I loved China Beach's Marg Helgenberger and indeed Linda Carter was also one of those most impossibly beautiful women. I liked Billy Mumy on Lost in Space.

Some great selections, and being from the UK I never realised that Adrienne Barbeau started out on television. Also never knew of Mariska Hargitay's famous parent. Educational eye candy, what more could I ask for?

I always liked Kate Jackson the best.

You made some very good choices! I'm glad to see some of my favorites made your list.

Hey, great list of beautiful women, but you've left out a whole lot of women from your list, including 2 hot women of The Brady Bunch: Florence Henderson aka Carol Brady and her TV daughter Maureen McCormick aka Marcia Brady!

well, I was limited to 13 but before any of those women would be included, I would be well into 100. None of them appealed to me.
