June was incredibly bittersweet for us as we waved adieu to two shows.
First, we said goodbye to The Fosters. While Tracy and I do tend to malign the show for it’s obvious flaws, we poured some drinks and watched the three-episode infomercial for Beaches– Oh, wait, no, we watched the three-night finale of the weird and messy Adams Foster clan.
The show ended with Lena running for office, Brandon marrying a Republican’s daughter, Judicorn nearly failing out of school, and Callie and Mariana deciding to live together in LA to help be closer to Jude… This also sets up a spinoff called Good Trouble. The new show is named from Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) who has often urged people to get into ‘good trouble’ to help save democracy. Since Callie’s off to be a lawyer, this is likely to a political show.
We’ll tune in and check if there’s any queer. Probably Stef and Lena will show up, and if we’re lucky, Aaron.
Sense8ional Fan Serice
Oh Sense8, I miss you already. Lana Wachowski hit a home-run with the finale of that wonderful show. It was absolutely fan service, and while I do think there was some mythos that could have been left out, they said the ending was “For the Fans” and they absolutely meant it.
I don’t know if there’s anything to say that I haven’t already. I just miss it and I probably will for a while.
Welcome Back Ladies
At the same time, two shows we like a lot are back. The Bold Type charged out of the gate strong. Kadena is clearly a focal point of the season, as is Kat’s race. The latter was something I’ve talked about with a lot of people, and it’s nice to see it being addressed. I personally was a little worried about the show, knowing the show’s creator left. Thankfully all my fears were unfounded.
June ended with season two of GLOW dropping. I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, but yes, we get a lesbian wrestler. Finally. And she’s a hoot. It’s only 10 episodes, and they’re 30 minutes, so you can blow an afternoon watching the gorgeous ladies of wrestling. I felt like the second season improved greatly on the already fun season one. The pacing of the story was better, and it was a tight season.
Sliding in More Stats
We’ve slipped in some stats improvements while we’re at it. Percentage calculations are better, but we’ve also added in a new measurement for death. You can now look at how deadly a station or nation is. Which means I can tell you that Telemundo killed off 100% of their queers.
But I can also show you how NBC has the most deaths overall of any TV network.
And finally, after a comment from Harold They’re Lesbians about percentages and a certain show with a 70.95 (that .05 was driving them mad), I rewrote the code that outputs the show score averages, high, and low, and I re-ran the score calculation on everyone. Guess what?
No one has a score of 0 anymore! Which is really okay. It should be a lot harder to get a 0. Just like getting a 100 should be incredibly difficult, you should be a show that really really sucks to get that 0.
Check out the new stats pages:
- Death by Nations
- Death by Stations
- Stations by Tropes (you can view each station, so A&E by tropes)
- Nations by Tropes (ditto check out USA by tropes)
Summer Break Continues
It doesn’t really feel like a break if you ask me, but technically it is. Elementary is going strong and there are some shows across the pond to look forward too.
