Well, I don’t know about y’all, but I cannot concentrate* on anything but the election, so! But! Here’s some queer lil pop culture links for you anyway, in this week’s Wednesday Pop Culture Fix.
+ According to Natalie, there’s a moment of queerness in Nicole Kidman’s new series, The Undoing. I wonder how come every Oscar-winning actress over 40 is playing gay these days? I’m going to call it Carol’s Law. Anyway, um. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER.
This storyline not end well.
END OF SPOILER.
+.I missed Kate McKinnon’s 2019 psychic skit from this week’s SNL; the warning for JKR made me laugh out loud.
+ People keep messaging us to asking if Drew’s going to review the new Rebecca. She is not, and this scathing review is the reasons why she is not. But you really should (re)read her masterful review of the classic!
+ Also please enjoy Drew on NPR’s Morning Edition!
+ Why is Nintendo Switch so freaking queer?

+ And one more!
Peacock is free service for cable subscribers correct? I kind of want to see this new Saved By the Bell, but after seeing two episodes of the New Class where Screech was Vice Principal to Belding that was a no. I think actor that plays him is doing time now, wild. I really hope Lisa &/or Jesse’s characters are not straight.
I have watched some things (The Amber Ruffin Show–it is delightful) for free on Peacock! Not sure what costs money and what doesn’t but there are definitely some things that are free with ads!
When I watched that Saved By The Bell promo, I thought to myself “was I attracted to Elizabeth Berkeley as a kid? (probably, yes)” and then “am I attracted to Elizabeth Berkeley now?! (Hell yes, she is peak Mommi).
Nicole’s Oscar-winning role was already her playing gay, which she then did again in Top of the Lake. I will of course watch The Undoing too.
…Is it just me or does anyone else kinda wanna watch the new Rebekah movie purely because of that absolutely scathing review from Vulture? I mean that makes it seem so absurd that it just has to be entertaining in some way?! I have not seen the film nor have I read anything else about it, but calling Ann Dowd heinous? Those right there are fightin’ words
