    15. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

    Lizy celebrates some trips around the sun. Joseph impersonates the cringiest tiger. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power fans recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of its series finale, so we decided to watch the show, and BOY did we enjoy it. For the honor of Grayskull, we come together to discuss She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and all the queer tidbits that Noelle Stevenson blessed us with.

    Lizy pimps out a lion. Joseph processes puppet grief. We're throwing it back to the 1950s to review a very sapphic western musical. Join us as we put on our bifocals to discuss Calamity Jane, accidental lesbianism, and queer coding in classic cinema.

    12. Freddie Mercury

    12. Freddie Mercury

    Joseph contemplates Guy Fieri introversion. Lizy recounts penguin trauma. We realized Kevin James was getting more airtime than the legendary Freddie Mercury - a true bicon - and it's time we fixed that. Join us as we humbly ask Jimmy Buffett for a favor, then put on our bifocals to take a look at the life of Freddie Mercury.

    11. But I'm a Cheerleader

    11. But I'm a Cheerleader

    Lizy conquers the heterosexual gauntlet! Joseph has Jennifer Aniston face blindness! Natasha Lyonne has range! She also had a raging case of the lesbians according to her parents in But I'm a Cheerleader. While a story about a teenager going to conversion therapy camp may sound dark, this is actually satire done well, and we both enjoy this movie so much, we thought we'd share our thoughts with you. Let's get in the spirit by putting on our bifocals to discuss But I'm a Cheerleader, satire, and queer identity.

    10. Are The Straights Okay?

    10. Are The Straights Okay?

    Joseph proposes a sequel series. Lizy determines the worth of a child. Wandavision inspired us to revisit some classic sitcoms, and it would seem that the heteros are upseteros. Are they okay? We trade in some rose-tinted glasses for good old-fashioned bifocals in order to find out as we break down some upsetting tropes, themes, and character decisions across 70 years of sitcoms.
