I know a lot of people have said this, but now I am as well: ORPHAN BLACK is a clear successor to BUFFY in so many ways.

I appreciate that BOY MEETS WORLD had not one, but TWO drag episodes.

Queer-baiting, for those who do not know, is the practice of television shows and movies putting in a little gay subtext, stirring up interest with queer fans, and then pulling a NO HOMO, MAN on the viewers. If you’ve watched Sherlock, this is a major “subplot” of the first episode, and it continues as a running joke throughout the series. John and Sherlock are mistaken as a gay couple, one of them (usually John) goes, “no way, of course not, we’re not even gay,” and it’s played off as a joke. The mere speculation that a character could be gay is played for laughs, and if you don’t see something wrong there, then there’s something wrong. Rebekah Baily explains ‘Queer-baiting’ on TV and cites examples like Supernatural, Teen Wolf, and Sherlock

I may have reblogged this before, but I always appreciated how Boy Meets World at least subtly addressed sexuality. Yes, it was comedic, but not in a disrespectful way.  There was the hinting that Cory and Shawn might have a connection more than just being friends, the MULTIPLE episodes where male characters were in drag, Frankie pondering whether he might be gay, Cory bonding with a gay classmate over their breakups in college, and the entire Pennbrook football team revealing they’re gay in one episode.  Probably other examples as well.

The irony of FOX News being conservative while FOX also airs shows that feature multiple LGBT characters like GLEE, American Horror Story, etc.

The Golden Girls is so much more than a show about four old ladies. It was WAY ahead of its time and addressed issues like marriage equality, LGBT rights, gender identity, interracial marriage, death, disease (including AIDs and CFS), parenting, and more.

Oh, and one of the show’s writers was Tom Whedon- Joss Whedon’s dad.
