  1. Really glad to hear Nancy Drew and Legacies are getting more season, since those are the best shows in the CW lineup imo. Legends of Tomorrow has just been of the air for so long that I almost forgot about it, but I love it too.
    Batwoman on the other hand after an abysmal first and only a bit better second episode has delivered a pretty good show so far with okay acting on Rubys part and a spectacular performance by Rachel Skarsten!
    Black Lightning just doesn’t do justice to its queer superhero and Tobias whale still being alive just seems like they are angling to make him their antagonist for next season again-.-

    I am happy my gay brain wasn’t just imagining those gay positions and looks in the New Mutants trailer and since it was still made by Fox and is not part of the MCU I am optimistic about this actually being queer and not only in subtext (I mean Carol Danvers and Maria Rambeau where definitely a couple, before Carols accident…).

    I don’t know Saved by the Bell at all, but I liked Josie Totah’s in No Good Nick and trans representation matters, so I look forward to it.

  2. Pedro Zamora was to me what Ellen was to so many. I was so young when I saw him on the Real World with all the love people had for him. I thought to myself, this man risked everything to be himself, so maybe I can too one day. And I did.

  3. I’d like to recommend everyone take that New Mutants rumor with a big handful of salt, ScreenRant will write about pretty much any rumor they hear, whether there’s support for it or not. The recent trailer does seem to confirm some intimacy, and I would be thrilled if they took it in that direction, but I’m not holding out hope for an actual relationship. I feel like Fox/Marvel would be making a bigger deal about it if it was going to be in there, like how they’ve made a whole announcement about their first gay hero in Eternals
