Today, two badass women of current Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV come back to our screens with new seasons of their respective shows.
So this seems like a great time to highlight other badass ladies of Sci-Fi and Fantasy television who have been favorites of mine in the past. All these ladies still hold very special places in my heart. The list, of course, is not exhaustive. It just contains some favorites from my DVD collection. (These are in no particular order.)
I have good news! There are only three more days until both Wynonna Earp and Killjoys return to our TV screens with brand new seasons of badassery for us to enjoy! Best of all, each show has a kickass lady leading the badass charge. In case you didn’t know, allow me to tell you… I LOVE bad-ass chicks. And these shows are all about them. Trust me, you don’t want to miss these!
It’s Pride Month, which some people think is an excuse to party and parade march while draped in rainbow flags for a solid 30 days. However, this month is actually meant to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally. I’ll admit that I’m not as educated as I should be on that subject. I’m working on it, though. And I spent the earlier part of this week trying to highlight a few folks in the entertainment industry who I believe are currently having very positive influences in their arenas. However this did seem like the perfect time to highlight a few people from the LGBTQ+ community who have been influential to me personally. So today, I’d like to talk about 4 people, specifically, who have in some way helped shape me and shown me what is is to be your true self and show love and support for those going through the struggle.
Hannah Gadsby, a well-known comedian from Tasmania, is quitting comedy. She has her reasons, and in her new Netflix comedy special, Nanette, she tells all about them. If a comedy special seems like a strange place to announce a retirement from comedy, you’re not wrong. Gadsby even admits as much. But the show is her platform and up until now, comedy has been the only voice she’s had to be heard. So Gadsby uses both the platform and her voice to give a few laughs, tell some stories, and educate viewers about some very serious matters.
Hey, geeks! Welcome to our week of getting to know Sister Geeks. This week, each of us will take a day to tell you a bit about ourselves. Today it’s my turn to give you a glimpse into my very geeky, slightly crazy mind. Hopefully, you’ll learn something you didn’t know and find a new link that connects us on a geeky level. Later this week, you’ll have the chance to hear from Jen P & Taylor as well. We appreciate you joining us on our geeky journey and hope you love being here as much as we love having you.
You may have heard about the CW network and their upcoming reboot of the popular late 90’s/early 00’s show, Charmed. On Tuesday, I posted “A Case Against the ‘Charmed’ Reboot.” In that article, I laid aside my rage at the upcoming reboot and calmly stated the reasons I believe the new series is a bad idea. In hanging out around the net, it seems that most devoted Charmed fans would rather this new iteration of the show not see the light of day. And not all fans are taking steps to be as calm and level-headed as me.
One fan, Andre, took to his YouTube channel to express his reaction and review of the new trailer. He openly expresses all the rage and frustration that most of us fans feel. The results are explosive, vulgar, and hilarious. Check out Andre’s reaction right here. Warning: This language is NSFW. So put those earbuds in.
