I’ve watched Clark Kent drag Lois Lane through flaky, bad boyfriend hell for at least 13 full seasons of TV and five full-length feature films. These two women talk out their feelings, explain their needs and desires, and handle the dissonance like adults in 42 minutes. (GAAAAAAY.)
Plus: Angelica Ross keeps surprising us on American Horror Story, Tess Pearson is still the world’s best tween (even if her anxiety won’t let her know it) on This Is Us.
Jenna’s journey of self-discovery continues in the darker, stronger, gayer second season.
The show has all the subtlety of a freak show. It’s horror-camp. It’s musical theater. And I absolutely mean all of those things as compliments.
Only 45 more days until December 8!

IS KIRA QUEER?
The failures of family, the joys of friendship, and a nonsensical but incredible musical number—just another day in Riverdale!
The show putting Ruby and Sapphire together isn’t a fluke — these two are a great match for each other, both stubborn and passionate and potentially dangerous with their respective abilities to generate heat and cold. They’re literally cut from the same stone.
Lesbians can be rich and mean too.
Whatever my quibbles with All American, it’s moments like these that truly separate the show from nearly every other one on television. Everything about the scene between Coop and her mother felt real and lived in it’s not just that All American is telling this story, it’s that they’re doing it in a way that feels authentic.
Alex and Kelly’s relationship is put to the test as a shapeshifter tries to shake things up for Team Supergirl.

Arlan Hamilton was truly delighted to join us for the most depressing “L Word” episode so far. It was really good but also like… really sad. But it didn’t stop Helena from going on three dates in one day!
