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.
Summer time is almost here and you know what that means: lots of sitting on the couch in front of the boob tube (with a tall glass of lemonade) catching all of the cool new and returning shows that the networks are going to be putting out during the humid months! The outside is full of cancer causing sunshine and malicious bugs out to give you lyme disease…stay inside where its safe under the warm glow of the television. Now click onward to see which shows I will be setting my DVR to record this summer.
It’s the 20th anniversary of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER the TV show and with that in mind I got to thinking about listsicle after listicle I could write like I was a Buzzfeed staffer. And lo and behold, my first list is about the most controversial aspect of Buffy fandom: which of her leading men was the best guy for our Slayer.
So I did a “The Best Looking Fall TV Shows” post the other day so it only makes sense that I do a post for which shows look pretty terrible from their trailer/preview clips. Now this doesn’t mean that these show will actually be bad because in previous years a couple of the shows that I thought looked pretty awful ended up securing spots on my weekly DVR list. That doesn’t change the fact that as afar as first impressions go these shows are not putting their best foot forward.

The fall TV season is almost upon us and as a result the networks are revealing more and more of their line-ups so I figured I would take a gander at some of the trailers being put out for public consumption and see which ones hook me based on their 2 to 5 minutes of video. In the long run I may end up hating all of these shows but for right now these are the best looking shows based on just trailers.
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.
While I am over the moon with excitement for the JUSTICE LEAGUE movie (especially after the clip shown at this year’s San Diego Comicon), I did notice while looking at the team pic that WB released that the League is basically a sausage party with Wonder Woman as the lone female presence on the team. And that is something that really needs to be rectified as quickly as possible which shouldn’t be hard since DC Comics has some really cool women heroes to choose from (as the image above, wonderfully drawn by Peter Nguyen certainly proves).
