No, I completely agree about the Bryan Singer comparison. We should be suspicious of any Hollywood guy whose work is habitually sexual and gratuitous, who has a reputation for making young people's careers, and who is constantly flanked by his sexy young muses. It's especially weird with Ryan Murphy because of how easy it is to tell what his type is.

Speaking of that, you know what's interesting? Evan Peters, who is in my opinion, Murphy's fav of them all, or at least he used to be, played played Quicksilver in the 2014 film X-Men: Days of Future Past and its 2016 sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse. Bryan Singer directed both of them.

EDIT: I just want to add Evan isn't gay - he's used to date Emma Roberts (also cast in AHS) and Julia Roberts' niece. But the connection to Singer is interesting.

Evan Peters is an absolute dime, but he doesn't look like the rest of the square-jawed, blue-eyed, dark-haired entourage.

He fits the "twunk" look though. I feel like most of the boys that are cast in his shows have huge thigh muscles and sturdy butts. Murphy def doesn't go for the full blown twink - like I think Singer does. They're always guys that can wear Hanes underwear and somehoow fill them out perfectly. hahah

3 days ago I came across a new TV show (well, new to me, otherwise IDK when it launched) with at least 2 LGBT characters and yesterday I started watching it. The warlock Magnus is quite cute. :D

Ive tried getting into Shadow hunters too, but the lead female character annoys the hell out of me.

You it is on Netflix. It's a psychological thriller which I thought was going to go really slow, but I was very wrong, and it's actually very good!

Watching the very early Midsomer Murders episodes and oh god the nostalgia of it. I used to watch this show with my parents when I was way too young to remotely follow it properly (and probably way too young for the subject matter too to be fair) and it's just so comfortable, for lack of a better word, to watch it again.

The first episode even has a moment where a character refers to gay people with a crude nickname and is forcibly corrected and chastised for it which was nice to see.
