I haven’t been able to catch up with the blog much lately, but these hibernation periods are good — they’re fertile (oh god, did I really just use “fertile” in a sentence about writing?), and when I get back to writing regular posts it will be with a vengeance. In the meantime, really fun stuff has been happening all over TV land. It’s a giant lesbian TV party, and you’re invited!
Orphan Black returns this Saturday, which makes the lesbian twitterverse (and this girl) very, very happy.
In case you haven’t noticed, I love Orphan Black. The show is smart and funny and fast and suspenseful and super woman-centric. Add to that the fact that Tatiana Maslany (whose name I constantly misspell) is a gorgeous, sweet, funny ACTING GENIUS, and you end up with a show that I just can’t get enough of. And Season 3 premieres this Saturday! In celebration of the impending feast, here are a few appetizers to whet your appetite:
Long weekends and holidays are upon us. Need a new queer TV addiction? All of my favorite queer tv shows, while currently on hiatus, are available on Netflix or Amazon Prime.
I can’t watch every tv show with a queer character on it these days — there are just too many. Anyway, let’s face it: I’m just not fond enough of Batman, for instance, to watch Gotham just for the queer character. But I do have a core watchlist of shows I hold very dear to my heart. These shows are important for visibility, sure; fortunately, they’re also a sheer delight to watch.
