It’s Wednesday and I’ve got chili in the slow cooker and there’s a cat asleep on my lap. Everything is a-okay! And here’s a pretty okay Pop Culture Fix, too.
+ Okay my Buffy aficionado wife says this isn’t “news,” but it’s NEWS TO ME. Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Daphne and Linda Cardellini’s Velma kissed on the mouth in the Scooby-Doo movie, but it was cut. On Watch What Happens Live this week, Gellar said, “There was a steamy kiss. It got cut. There was an actual kiss between Daphne and Velma that got cut. I feel like the world wants to see it. I don’t know where it is.wp_postsI KNOW I WANT TO SEE IT. Also Fred was gay in this movie?? What in the world, give this to me! I had so suffer through a full season of Mindy Kaling’s Velma; I deserve this!
+ This is suuuuuch a good and important read. Gina Prince-Bythewood talks to The Hollywood Reporter about the Oscars shutting out The Woman King.
+ GREASE! THE RISE OF THE PINK LADIES!
+ This is so bad and infuriating: The WNBA is investigating Las Vegas Aces for circumventing the salary cap.
+ Get ready for… Tegan and Sara: Junior High! A new graphic memoir!
+ Quantum Leap did a really well received trans episode this week. Writers say they hope it will be a “heart-opening” experience.
+ There’s some lesbians in a new Doritos ad and I heard it’s making people cry. Not me, though. I never cry at commercials. (LOL, yes I do.)
+ Are you ready? 🐝
Sorry to be sappy but the 90s cast of Yellowjackets wrapped yesterday and we all sat and watched episode 201 together… and other than my siblings, I have never felt this level of pride and respect and adoration for a group of people. I can’t believe their talent and their hearts
