    No Becoming Us (ABC Family)? Shame!

  2. Barbara says:

    Weird that they included arrow when their one lgbt character was like in 2 episodes as a mindless psycho.

    • Geo says:

      This season Arrow has the recurring character of Curtis Holt (Felicity’s technological genius friend at Palmer Industries). He’s gay, and (as readers of DC Comics know) likely to soon emerge as a bigger player in the Arrow-verse.

    • sissyfritz says:

      Don’t forget about Sara and Nyssa. Although their relationship was not really explored physically onscreen, it was frequently referenced. Side characters, yes, but fairly important.

    Love love love TOP OF THE LAKE.

  4. Cornelius says:

    Any news on season 2 of Sense8 yet? Really hope it’s at least a 2016 release.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Surprised Top of The Lake is returning for another season with the way it ended in season 1. Interesting what the storyline for season 2 will be. Happy Martin and Adam will be on new show together on Crackle.

    PLEASE LIKE ME! Everybody go watch this show.
