On this chapter of The Queerest Things I Watched Last Week, after spending years following Mel and Liz’s angsty ups & downs, I watched RED season 6 – the beautiful Brazilian web series’ final season.
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, everyone! It’s the perfect start to a week of regime change here in the US. Please stay safe and healthy this week!
- RED – Season 6 [Streaming]
One of my biggest queer TV regrets is starting to watch RED after the cast and creator had a panel at ClexaCon back in 2018. I thought to myself, “Who are these gorgeous models walking around the Tropicana?” Now I know. RED is one of the best web series ever created (the best in my opinion), and the combination of beautiful videography, amazing soundtrack and off the charts chemistry between the main couple Mel and Liz is absolutely mesmerizing.
RED season 6 dropped in December and I was like this waiting to see it.
I was also sad because it was the 6th and final season. What would happen to Mel and Liz after 6 years of angst? While every season was beautiful to watch it was also torture because we just want our main ship to be happy, right?
I am not giving away the ending, because I want ALL OF YOU to watch this series, but here are some non-spoilery highlights.
Anna and Laura give polyamory a try.
Rafa looks fabulous this season and has to deal with some business-related homophobia.
As always, there is plenty of Meliz angst.
I made a Mel and Liz angst collage for you all to
torture yourselves withenjoy!
One thing I will say about RED season 6 is fans will not be disappointed and we have made the show an official LezWatch.TV Show We Love.
How to watch RED Season 6
This week: Other than Batwoman coming back, it’s been slim pickings for queer content lately. Next week I’ll tell you all about Nurses, the Shondaland knockoff that’s not so great on the hospital stories but decent with queer content.
