Rewatching Futurama and remembering just how much…

god dammit crys, now i want to re-watch futurama too, what have you D O N E

MIRY I JUST, I’M WATCHING THIS AND IT’S SO MUCH MEMORIES CRASHING AT ME

LIKE I WATCHED THE XMAS EPISODE AND ZOIDBERG’S APOLOGY DANCE????, FRY AND HIS 500 LIZARDS OR ONE PARROT????, AND MORBO AND LINDA and god those were really good times,

Remember that time when ABC had a sitcom

  • about a conventionally unattractive young Latina woman
  • whose sister was a single mother of a gay teenager
  • whose best friends included a gay man, a transwoman, and an Irish immigrant
  • that specifically addressed issues of transphobia, homophobia, racism, and classism
  • that had a feminine male character who was explicitly not gay (but was played by a gay man)
  • and a corporate head who was a Black woman
  • that sometimes played Betty’s unattractiveness and Alexis’ transness for laughs but more often made fun of bigots who were biased against them
  • because the point was always that Betty and Alexis (and Marc, and Justin, and Hilda, and Willie, and Christina, and Suzuki) deserved to be respected for their talents, not dismissed because of their race, class, or sexuality
  • and to boot had great acting and music

God, those were good times.
