broadchurch

Shower thought of the day

write-like-an-american:

I can name at least a few middle-aged-or-older mlm couples in media, but not a single wlw couple. Anyone else know any shows with older wlw? Especially ladies who are comfortably married/in a long-term partnership?

Last Man on Earth has Mary Steenburgen’s (who’s in her sixties I think) character married to a woman who’s in her twenties, the age difference is never even remarked upon

Broadchurch had an older lesbian couple, although the show’s finished now alas

Doctor Who has had a few older WLW (some married, some not) show up as side characters, plus there’s River Song (although who knows if she’s ever coming back…)

the signs as insults from broadchurch:

Aquarius: when you die, no one will mourn for you
Aries: what do you know about being a mother? you’re barely bloody human
Cancer: knob.
Capricorn: i hope you bloody well crash and have a heart attack while you’re crashing
Gemini: i wanted to say… i think you’re a truly horrible person
Leo: you can keep your broody bullshit shtick to yourself
Libra: i’ll give you money to shut up
Pieces: why are you being such a fuckwit about this?
Scorpio: what is the point of you, miller?
Sagittarius: move away from me now or i will piss in a cup and throw it at you
Taurus: i hoped you might choke on the seeds
Virgo: i’ll give you money to be less of a knob

So now Broadchurch is forever that show where 10 tries to solve the murder of 13’s son with help from prisoner 0.

Not to mention Rory constantly worrying and trying to give advice.

And don’t forget Gwen giving Ten and Prisoner 0 hell as well while Psi (Time Heist) is writing for the local paper.

Welcome to Britain, home of three sets and ten actors.

we shouldn’t have to be scared

What on earth is the context that has people applauding this?

Considering the show so far has really been almost entirely about the ways in which men can hurt women, I definitely don’t think we’re meant to applaud this, no.

(I also think Hardy’s refusal to honor his daughter’s choices is absolutely going to come back to haunt him.)
