EP55 - Will & Grace, The Puppy Episode, and a Missed Opportunity

EP55 - First airing in 1998 and running for 8 seasons before its 2017 reboot, Will & Grace has always been applauded as revolutionary - but the show only focused on a very narrow part of the queer community: the wealthy, white, cis man. While you could argue that this was the show’s only option at the time, Will & Grace continues to have the same problems with its current day reboot - bi-erasure, lack of racial representation, and the same stereotypes - ignoring the intersections of the queer community. And even more heartbreaking, the reboot mocks the Puppy Episode, a part of queer TV history that paved the way for Will & Grace.

EP53 - Shrill

EP53 - Shrill brings up important issues, most notably how changing your life for the better doesn't have to mean changing your body. It's a show about empowerment and acceptance, and I came away with a lot of information, but also a lot of questions. My biggest concern? Well, it has to do with the morning-after pill.
