A lot is going on. All the time. Everywhere. And we publish a lot of content every week, some of it breaking news, other more editorial stuff, as well as reviews and teases of shows and movies to come. We understand you can’t always be on top of everything. And as such, you might miss stuff we wish …well, you wouldn’t.
So, every week, I’m going to comb through the site and point you, once again, to the stuff you should take the time to read. Either because it’s really funny, or because it’s a particularly good take, or just because I liked it. This is my list, after all.
Here are my picks for the 5 can’t miss Fangirlish articles of this week:
The changes in Batwoman could have been a disaster, but instead the show found a way to honor Kate and introduce a new character that we, the audience, could connect with. Lyra has been chronicling that in her reviews, but this week she looks at how the show has handled the LGBTQ representation that we appreciated from it since the beginning, in this new era. A must-read, especially if you’re wondering what the show is doing in this regard.
We love our tropes! And sometimes, they don’t have to be the kind of tropes that go on for season-long arcs. Sometimes it’s just two people having to go undercover as a couple and ZOMG the sexual tension and the repressed feelings. Or maybe they get to a hotel, and gasp, there’s only one room, and gasp, that room ONLY HAS ONE BED. Yes, I’m a sucker for those, and if you are too, then you’ll enjoy Grace going through some of the best smaller tropes in this edition of Keep Calm, Trope On.
Most of you have probably already watched the WandaVision finale, and there’s surely a lot to dissect about what did happen, but even after watching the episode, I still really love the way Shelby dissected the questions that were left unanswered before the finale, some of which are questions we still have! This show has been the gift that keeps on giving, and it’s been a pleasure to enjoy it alongside Shelby’s coverage of it.
Raquel had a lovely interview with Josephine Langord that we published last week, and as we were getting ready to publish it we ran into one problem – there were spoilers in the interview, and Moxie, the movie Josephine was promoting, hadn’t yet been released. So Raquel decided to save up the spoilery answer for this week, and I’m kinda glad, as it gave her a chance to write up another fun piece that truly showcases the actress. A must-read.
We’re all up in that royal content lately. I’m not even sure why, I personally have never truly cared, but I just feel like protecting Harry and Meghan and supporting them, and just …keeping them safe from the world, and especially Harry’s horrible family. So it’s fun to see them get a chance to be themselves, to laugh and to have fun. Erin’s write up of Harry’s interview of James Corden is that, fun. So is the interview, btw.
