    I think it's the landmark "Bury Your Gays" trope for a lot of people, myself included.

    Now, years later, the Magicians introduce a gay character as a love interest to a main gay character then murder the former to provide growth for the latter after two episodes.

    I don't think that's growth.

    This still happens frustratingly often in a lot of shows, I agree. The CW-made DC shows aren't fantastic quality overall but at least they seem quite determined to expand and maintain their LGBT casts.

    You definitely have to give the CW credit for having two super hero shows with LGBT leads.

    Soon to be three.

    I don't know if you'd count Alex Danvers as a lead on Supergirl, but if so, that's another show.

    The 100 has a bisexual lead character. It also has one of the more famous examples of the "bury your gays" trope, so it's not...necessarily a great example

    About 3/4 of the way through Bodyguard. Tense.

    Thinking it over, it reminds me most of some of the earlier seasons of Spooks, before they got silly. And not just because Keeley Hawes is in it.
    ... man, there was a show that should have ended around season five. Super good up until then, though.

    Yeah, S3 went out of it's way to insert really shitty plotlines combined with really shitty character work.

    City of Light was neat, but almost literally everything else was so, so bad.

    From what I can tell, they're done with season five and season six is what's coming next?

    Anyways, I finished four seasons of Steven Universe, and here are some very brief thoughts: it's very good. I like that characters are allowed to get mad at each other, and also continue to be mad at each other for longer than a single episode before they work through it. I like that their instinct with a lot of the antagonists is to bring them into the fold, rather than just have them as obstacles to overcome

    Maybe it's a function of having been spoiled on some of the twists of the show by various means, but the big overarching plot with the diamonds has rarely hit as hard for me as I think it's meant to. I care about what Rose meant to everyone, and what her loss means to everyone, more than I care about the intricacies of the gem war, I think, although it's a little difficult to separate the two. I think it's just...there's a bit of mystery built in, and it's been less compelling than seeing the characters and their relationships grow over time.

    i'm only a couple eps into the bodyguard (and haven't seen spooks for the comparison point) but one of my own immediate comparisons was that it felt like it took place in the sicario universe
