“My one note is, “God, I wish Tasha was a firefighter, so I didn’t have to feel conflicted about her.”
In many ways Legend of Korra is more timely than ever because it forces us to examine our hero worship and the notion that one person will save us from destruction or that the simple removal of one villain will solve all of our problems.
“These roundtables are fun, because sometimes I’m answering and I’m like GOD I’M SO MYSELF and I feel that here. Not just because I feel anxious about whether I really can claim to like these more than anyone I know, but also because my answers are just so aggressively me.”
We’ve got 95 Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer-ish Netflix TV shows streaming right now on the very internet you’re reading!
Ratched stabs, cuts, bludgeons, and mutilates what was past. The show is brutal, but provides relief for its queer women. Unfortunately, its characters of color and disabled characters are not granted the same care.

Guess you better learn how to watch Quibi! Also: a trans high school rom-com, all the Javicia Leslie Batwoman news you can handle, TCA Awards for A Black Lady Sketch Show, and give this duck its own TV show.
By pairing a visceral portrayal with thorough descriptions of OCD, “Pure” becomes a teaching tool as well as a delightful dramedy. It’s also just a really good and gay story about a 20-something trying to figure out how to be a good person.
“I feel like I’m very much a stickler for how Black church is shown on TV, and I think a lot of people get it wrong in movies and TV a lot, like it just never is quite right.

Pam Grier — yes, that Pam Grier, Bette’s big sister (it’ll annoy me forever that that’s how generations of queer women remember Grier) — was just astounding in the titular role… badass and unrelentingly sexy.
