Fangirls on TV
March 16, 2014 3:11 PM Subscribe
For a research project, I need to find portrayals of female media fans on television shows. Any genre, and potentially any time period, will do, although I suspect this is more likely to be a relatively recent phenomenon.

Examples of what we're looking for: Becky Rosen, in Supernatural; Labia, Matt LeBlanc's fan/stalker in Episodes; the nameless fans in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. We know there are more, especially on TV shows we don't personally watch, so I'm hoping the hive mind can help us out with this. To clarify, these do not need to be recurring characters; one-offs are fine (especially if you can name the season and episode in which the fan appeared).
We are mostly interested in television fans--so, for instance, the fangirl in the Veronica Mars movie is less relevant--but at this stage all examples are welcome. Thanks for your help!
