The double Aussie Janeways I never knew I needed

This show comes out of the gate strong. Incredibly funny and well-written.

please return to Villanelle ,

When are we getting a live action?

In a time where quality queer content is getting canceled one after the other, in walks the perfect antidote! This production has all the gay mixed with clever dialogue, phenomenal performances, and high quality sound design. Can’t wait for future seasons!

SisterIndica ,

As Good As It Gets

I’d give this 100 stars if I could because this show has it ALL:

- Witty & Clever Writing
- Top Tier Performances
- Incredible Sound Design
- Australians
- A spaceship filled with LESBIANS! Like, HELLO!

Every episode makes me howl with laughter. You feel lighter after listening and in the times we are in, we all need that now!
