  1. A family sitcoms about today’s America you can watch today instead of Roseanne? ONE DAY AT A TIME

  2. Quick correction: the linked article says the A League of Their Own show will be on Amazon, not Netflix.

  3. Can you imagine Shane or Jenny in A League of Thier Own? I think no. They are both in the Daria Morgandorffer camp of sarcastically pretending to get the ball several seconds too late.

  4. Just briefly scrolling through and holy shit, so many shows/movies/books where an lgbt character dies.
