As a big old nerd I wholeheartedly recognize and appreciate that the realm of genre (science fiction, fantasy, horror, action/adventure) TV has always been very progressive and ahead of the curve in pop culture when it comes to LGBTQ representation and over the years I have become a major fanboy of many of the LGBTQ characters that have appeared on those TV shows. So in honor of LGBTQ Pride Month I figured I’d share some of that love with this list of my favorite characters from some of my favorite TV shows.
It has been 2 years since the last time I wrote about my hate-watching habit and try as I might I still can’t seem to get this monkey off my back. Sure most of the shows I was hate-watching have mercifully gone to the TV show graveyard in the sky yet other shows have popped up to fill that hole in my soul that only a good hate-watch can satisfy.
As a diehard comic book fan I am completely hooked on The CW’s ARROW Tv show that follows the adventures of DC Comic’s Green Arrow in live-action form. The show could have very easily devolved into a soapy SMALLVILLE style mess but somehow the folks behind ARROW managed to walk the perfect tightrope of super-hero action goodness with CW style melodrama to create the best comic book based series on TV (take that AGENTS OF SHIELD!). Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer for the remainder of Season 2 after the cut and prepare to get hooked on this show.
