There were 128 queer lady characters on TV this year, if you can believe that. It’s a brand new world.
You’ll never guess what’s #1….because you definitely know what’s #1.
With lots of amazing cosplay photos. Because, seriously, wow.
There is no discernible theme.
So many LGBT Emmy nominees, most importantly Laverne Cox!
CLONE DANCE PARTY! CLONE DANCE PARTY! CLONE DANCE PARTY!
How do you solve a problem like Helena? Probably not with marijuana.
Then this show throws out the most shocking twist of all: Donnie is actually a competent human being! Oh no you guys… do I actually like Donnie now? Is this real life?
They’re not gonna kill off Cosima, right? I swear to Jeebus, if they Chaiken Cosima I’m gonna be so pissed.
“This show is a testament to amazing writing, and the exceptional acting of Tatiana Maslany, who embodies each clone with such fervor it’s hard to reconcile that they are all played by the same person. Each woman is extremely complex and strong and make perfect examples of the badass and fearless women that I write about every other week.”
Welcome to a deluxe two-in-one review of the sixth and seventh episodes of season two of Orphan Black! These would have been up sooner, but things like A-Camp, A-Plague, and A-Pain of Returning to the Hetero World have sidelined me. So what did I miss? ALL THE THINGS, apparently.
Sarah explains to Helena that Felix is her brother, and she’s her sister, so Felix is one of the seestras, okay? Fair enough.
Felix describes Cosima and Delphine as “locked in a transgressive lesbian geek spiral bound to end in tears.” Little does he know he just described every lesbian relationship ever in the history of womankind.
“For the duration of the plot so far, Delphine’s bisexuality is the premise for the moral tension that she causes, and a key to the danger that she poses to Cosima.”
While Sarah seems extremely comfortable roughing it up and peeing in the woods, Felix equates camping with being homeless in the country. Obviously he’s never been to A-Camp.
Felix says they need an idea to trap Donnie, and Alison tells him what every college student already knows: drinking leads to ideas.
“Dr. Leekie wants Cosima working for them, and Delphine assures him she’s on it. He tells her to be careful playing for the other team, which is a pretty solid gay/double agent joke.”
This spring/summer there are more brand-new lesbian, bisexual and otherwise-identified ladies on your television set than we ever dreamed possible.
