I don’t really know how many of you out there like to read about the TV shows I find with LGBT characters on them, but I have a new obsession, so I thought I’d share 🙂 I know I like to get new ideas, so what the heck?
What have I been obsessing about now?
Orphan Black*!! If you know this show, you’ll know I am late to the game a bit since it aired last year. D* and I have been binge watching it On Demand, and the new season starts on April 19th – so this is actually perfect timing!
Oh my goodness, do I love this show or what?! I won’t give away too much of the storyline, but basically it starts out with Sarah Manning:
She witnesses a woman jumping to her death in the first scene of the show. Before the woman jumps, they lock eyes and Sarah realizes the woman looks just like her:
Since the woman (Beth Childs) is dead, Sarah, who’s been down on her luck, steals her purse and her identity. I won’t tell you what it is that Beth does for a living, since that was a great twist to me, but I will tell you that there are others. Many others who look just like Sarah:
Why? Because they are clones! Okay, I know, you are probably thinking this is the silliest storyline, but let me tell you, I am HOOKED! One actress (Tatiana Maslany) plays 8 characters! She does it so well, you know who they are right away in each scene, even when they are talking to each other – she is AH-MAZING!! I can’t say enough good things about this show.
Oh, and one part that doesn’t hurt at all:
Cosima. Cosima is the geeky scientist of the group, and I have no idea why she is the one I am most attracted to, but her character is a lesbian. My gaydar could just be dinging overtime, but I almost always love the geeks. 😉
I am so glad they included a lesbian character. It was a little bit of a shock because there was no indication, but then again, that’s the amazing thing about it! They don’t treat it like it’s something unusual or anything. It’s just a normal thing. I love that so much!
In conclusion, if you are looking for something that is action-packed, will keep you on your toes, has excellent acting, and a little lady-loving – then you must see this show!! You won’t regret it!
* If D is watching this with me, you KNOW it’s good! She won’t watch a lot of my favorites. 😦
** I don’t know why I am so attracted to Sci-fi shows right now: The Walking Dead, Lost Girl, and now Orphan Black. I’ve never liked Sci-Fi before, but these three shows are my top three favorite shows of all time! I must also love Canadians because Lost Girl and Orphan Black both are from Canada!
Do you ever meet someone as you are coming out of the bathroom and want to say to them, “You will find a “present” in stall 3, and I thought you should know – it wasn’t me”?*
That is all.
* Yes, I seriously took the time to come here and write this after I haven’t written a post in what seems like forever 🙂
UPDATE: I realized after I posted this that people are thinking I mean I made the mess. That’s not what I meant! I have very good bathroom manners. I meant that I don’t want the people I meet coming into the bathroom to think I was the one who left the mess they will certainly find inside. Or the smell. 😉
I just came across a HILARIOUS post that suggests we make homosexuality a religion to end all of the debate. If you want to laugh today, check it out here.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
