    Women Behaving Badly: Nancy Botwin, the Drug-Dealing Mother From 'Weeds'

    Some women use their intellect, others use their feminine wiles. It's reasonable to say Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker), the heroine of Showtime's suburban drug comedy "Weeds," used both.

    Women Behaving Badly: Amy Jellicoe, the Manipulative Do-Gooder From 'Enlightened'

    The great thing about Amy Jellicoe is that she's not going to kill you. Television is littered with male antiheroes playing with their guns, or knives in the case of Al Swearengen from "Deadwood."

    Women Behaving Badly: Olivia Pope, the Ferocious Fixer From 'Scandal'

    The character of Iago in "Othello" is one of the great villains, a conniver without peer, brilliant and inscrutable. His torrents of flowery verbiage obscure to everyone who becomes a pawn on his chessboard the fact that no persuasive reason is ever given for his turning on Othello. The clearest exp...
