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:
Beata got a chance at a dream interview this week, with three of the main stars of the movie Trust, and though I haven’t had a chance to watch the movie yet, I found the interview super fun to watch. In the end, actors are paid to do PR, yes, but it’s fun to see them discuss the work they put into a movie, and to sort of understand how the acting decisions they made came to be.
Lyra always makes me want to catch up on American Gods. Every time I fall a little bit behind, she comes with her words and draws me right back in, especially she goes into Salim during this week’s Queerly Not Straight. I won’t go into the actual topic she discusses in the column, but I will say that seeing her shine a spotlight into queer issues week after week has been one of my favorite things of this site for the past few years, and I’m always
I binged this show very recently and fell in love with it, and so I was super excited to go on this journey with Raquel as she discussed Sharpwin‘s ABCs. Helen is one of my favorite characters in this show, and though I’ve never felt it has really been the time for her and Max to maybe try out how they would be together, I do appreciate their connection, and especially how much of it is built on friendship. Whatever the future might bring, I’m all in.
I have never read any of these books, so I’m only here to talk about Beata’s enthusiasm for it, which is pretty obvious as you read the review. But it’s not only that, we’ve all been fans of a lot of things and have wanted to discuss them over and over again, without ever finding good ways to actually express deeper messages, and yet Beata describes a book I could never read, without a lot of background, and still makes it sound interesting.
Shelby killed me this season with her coverage of WandaVision, and the season finale killed me in general, so the combination was a lot, what can I say? There have been a lot of frankly baffling takes online, and yet I always had Shelby to rely on when it came to reading a nuanced review of this show that didn’t actually let characters of the hook for the things they did wrong, but that also never judged them harshly for being human, with all the good and bad that entails.
