You should all watch The Bold Type

It’s a show that is inspired by the life of former Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles. It focuses on the lives of three young women who work with the magazine.

Some character descriptions, without too many spoilers (written by me so I apologize for any grammar/writing mistakes)

There’s Kat, a black woman who is struggling with her sexual identity. Struggling might not be the right word since her experience is very positive and you can see she’s happy to explore. Her friends are extremely supportive. Kat is the social media expert for the magazine. 

Sutton is someone who is very driven and goes after what she wants. She is an assistent, but dreams of going into fashion and works for it. 

Jane is an aspiring writer. She’s sometimes unsure of herself, but with the help of her friends and her boss, she gets through most of her obstacles. 

Adena is a recurring character. She describes herself as a ‘proud muslim lesbian’ and I think that’s a perfect description, even though there’s more to her character than that. She’s an artist and develops a close relationship with Kat. 

Jacqueline is the editor-in-chief at the magazine. Unlike most female bosses portrayed on TV, she’s very supportive of her employees and helps them out if needed. She makes sure she talks to anyone in need and is just really awesome tbh. 

Anyway, watch this show. It’s not perfect, there are mistakes, but it’s only 4 episodes so far and there is so much room for growth. We get to see three women navigate life in a different way, and we get to see a relationship between a bi/pan woman and a lesbian woman develop (and it’s really adorable and sweet). 

You can watch it on Freeform on Tuesdays, on Hulu (I think) or on the Freeform website. If you’re outside of Europe, you can find it on websites like watchseries and projectfreetv. 

Please support this show as much as you can. It would be a shame to only get one season of a show that is fun to watch, even when it tackles some serious issues. 

In response to @wearethefandomsthatwaited‘s request in reply to my previous post, here is the little blurb and photo of Colin Morgan from the alumni news section in the Oct/Nov/Dec 2007 issue of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama’s Academy magazine. The photo may be from RSAMD’s 2006 production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle, but I can’t swear to that.

Taylor and Joe timeline

2016

May 2nd – Taylor and Joe both attend the Met Gala (they probably hadn’t met yet but it’s a fun thing to observe)

October 12th – Taylor and Joe both attend the Kings of Leon private concert (this is where I’m theorizing they met; Lily Aldridge is married to Caleb Followill, who is friends with Garrett Hedlund, who is in the movie with Joe. Garrett might have gone to the KOL show and decided to bring Joe along with him)

October 12th – Taylor and Joe both attend the Kings of Leon concert after party

October 22nd – Taylor’s concert in Austin, and she had a cold. Joe had a cold the week after when he went to Taiwan (this isn’t really an event but it’s a fun thing to notice)

November 11th – Taylor goes to the Arclight Theatre to see Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, starring Joe 


2017

January 8th – Taylor films the I Don’t Wanna Live Forever video in London

February 9th – Joe does an interview with the Evening Standard U.K. which says “No, he won’t be telling us his relationship status”

May 14th – Taylor spotted at Andrea’s house

May 16th – news breaks that Taylor and Joe have been dating for months

June 1st – Taylor and Joe spotted getting on a plane to leave the UK

June 3rd – Joe spotted getting on a plane with his husky

June 5th – Pictures released of Joe and Taylor having breakfast on the balcony in Nashville

June 5th – Article released in People about Taylor and Joe’s relationship (it says “multiple sources confirm” and we know that People is Tree’s go-to magazine for confirming things)

Good things in DC comics this week:

  • Teen Titans starting to hold Damian accountable for his leadership issues and Kori stepping up to take charge of the team
  • Batman Beyond showing Goliath is still with Damian even now he’s all grown up and Head of the Demon

Bad things in DC comics this week:

  • DC having Bruce refer to Damian as his ‘true son’ in Batman Beyond like he doesn’t have 4 others (counting Terry) and a daughter
Voltron again

Okay, but LISTEN!

When is Princess Romelle going to be introduced?
