I feel like I should direct all the disappointed Sherlockians, who are sad because of the lack of queer representation, to Murdoch Mysteries.
Reasons I love it:
Very accurate description of the 1890’s
Murdoch (played by Yannic Bisson) is HOT ASF
Destroying gender roles
Strong female lead characters
Lesbian women’s rights activist character
Gay police officer (is in every episode, isn’t confirmed but hinted 1000 times)
Head of the police is also gay (later jailed for it :c)
SO. MUCH. REPRESENTATION.
Adorable relationship of smart male lead and smart women’s rights activist doctor female lead
Okay I would say many more but if this doesn’t motivate you idk what will
I FUCKING LOVE THAT SHOW AND I’VE SEEN EVERY SEASON AT LEAST 3 TIMES
It has 10 seasons atm, 11th in the making.
Season 1 starts off pretty dull, but it gets spicy after a few episodes and by season 10 it’s just PERFECT.
