Every now and then, a show comes along that just speaks to your soul. For me, that show is currently Wynonna Earp on Syfy. It pushes all the right buttons for me: a leading lady with a shady past and a drinking problem, Wynonna Earp is a seriously flawed hero. She”s a maninizer (like a womanizer but when men are the objects) and has a chip on her shoulder the size of the Oklahoma sky. But she”s also overly protective of her sister and is secretly nursing some serious self-loathing and doubt. Wynonna is an action-hero bad girl and I”m a sucker for that archetype every time.
If you”re more into the straight-and-narrow, Syfy still has you covered. Wynonna's little sister Waverly is adorable and peppy, wears preppy paisleys and scrapbooks. She”ll also shoot you with buckshot at point-blank range if you sleep with her man and uses said scrapbooking skills to keep track of the demons plaguing her family.
The cast rounds out with a tough-as-nails mother figure, a lawman out of his element, and the hottest version of Doc Holliday since Val Kilmer in Tombstone. Wynonna Earp airs every Friday at 10/9c on Syfy. I HIGHLY suggest you check it out. If you like what you see? You could end up in the comic the show is based on!
