Hello, and welcome to your weekly Pop Culture Fix, a primer on the best primers for your house and home.
+ I’ve started watching screeners for Hulu’s Shrill, based on the memoir by Lindy West and starring Aidy Bryant as “Annie,” which dropped a trailer last week.
What the trailer doesn’t make evident is that Fran, Annie’s roommate and BFF, is GAAAYYYY. I can’t tell you more than that because I don’t want to lose my Hulu privileges, but I just want you to know this so you can get even more excited about the show than you already are, a mission I am confident Hulu would support!
+ Netflix is debuting a new dating show that follows five REAL couples on their first dates and there are cute queers!
+ Isabella Gomez talks to Out Magazine about playing Elena in Season Three of One Day at a Time:
“I struggled most with this season acting-wise because it’s such personal topics that Elena deals with. But I’m proud of the work we did … on such a beautiful collaboration.”
+ The Walking Dead is about to introduce a new lesbian couple: Magna and Yumiko debuted in November, but only now has it been revealed that the duo are in fact a lesbian couple and this will be very clear when the show returns on February 10th. I wonder if they will die or not!
+ The Party of Five reboot is on and will focus on the five Acosta children, who find themselves parent-less after their mother and father are deported to Mexico. The original Party of Five was one of the first TV shows to feature a lesbian kiss — but only barely. Anyhow, here’s a pic of the new cast, no reason:
+ Apparently, Friends‘ lesbian wedding was blocked in certain locations:
It was important to us, and the producers, that we showed a couple that was in love. But certain affiliates wouldn’t air the episode with our [Carol and Susan’s] wedding. They completely blocked it out.
