Today is the day before Thanksgiving and what I am thankful for is Betty Cooper’s mom on Riverdale and also Cheryl Blossom and extra also: you! Here’s your Pop Culture Fix, which includes maybe some other things to the thankful for.
+ The full trailer for Lena Waithe’s The Chi is here! When the first trailer came out, Riese did a deep investigation into the show’s actors to figure out who’s going to play the lesbian characters.

+ Sarah Paulson talked to Entertainment Weekly about that wacko AHS: Cult finale. She’s also in talks with Warner Brothers to star in The Goldfinch, but as some dude’s girlfriend, which maybe explains why she keeps starring in Ryan Murphy everything; she never plays second fiddle to a man when she’s playing a cult leader/senator.
+ Have you checked out Kayla’s review of the first three episodes of Hulu’s Runaways? You should do that right now! Here’s a little interview with the cast from the folks at Hypable.
Of course, there was one particular aspect of the original comics that everyone was curious to know about. Was Karolina’s sexuality going to carry over into the show? And, while Gardner couldn’t definitively tell us, she very strongly hinted that it would.
“Obviously it’s Marvel, so I can’t say too much,” Gardner told us. “But I can say that I don’t think fans will be disappointed. And as you can see, Lyrica and I do have good chemistry. I’ll leave you with that.”
+ Cocaine Godmother, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones as drug queenpin Griselda Blanco, premieres January 20 on Lifetime. Blanco was bisexual IRL and it looks like she’s gonna be bisexual on Lifetime too.
+ An Indiegogo to consider: Forward, An LGBTQ-Positive Soccer Short Film
+ Disney Sends Beautiful Message With First ‘Boy Princess,’ Complete With Chest Hair (You think it’s going to zig into trans panic but it zags when a character is like, “Uh, princesses can have chest hair too.”)
+ And finally, the full trailer for the CW’s superhero crossover event Crisis on Earth X is here and there’s a lot of Sara Lance and Alex Danvers being framed together and my sneaking suspicion is that’s not all they’re going to be doing together. Next Monday is when it starts. (P.S. I’m too old to be yelled at by shippers.)
