Ever since Citrus finished airing a few weeks ago, I’ve felt like I was stripped from the gayness that I need so dearly in my life. So what did I do?
I looked for some new anime to watch and gladly came across shows like Comic Girls, for example, but it wasn’t even nearly enough to satisfy my hunger for gayness, so I searched elsewhere as well.
What I then found was the second season of Wynonna Earp as well as the Carmilla movie. Both of which were already discussed in previous “Let’s Talk About” posts, but since there’s a new season, plus a whole new movie to talk about now, why not continue?
So let’s start with Wynonna Earp. First up, yes the lesbian characters are still alive, hurray! After the little shock that the ending of the last season gave me, my favorite officer and lady killer, Nicole, is still very much alive and very much in love with our favorite Earp sister, Waverly. And if you thought that the first season was already packed with memorable moments between these two, then you better get ready for season two!
In all honesty, they mostly stole the show from the main pairing, or should I say pairings, meaning Wynonna and Doc Holiday, or, well, Wynonna and Dolls. Their relationship stood strong throughout the whole season again, and even their fights were truly well written, interesting to watch, and yet still heartbreaking at the same time.
What’s most interesting, though, is to see that even in a parallel universe, the two found their way to each other. This is despite the fact that one of them was already engaged to a guy, and well, the other one probably even in that universe married to another woman.
Well, I stated a while ago that Wynonna Earp is a pretty trashy show, and don’t get me wrong, it still is. But with the second season, the whole quality of the CGI effects improved a lot. It doesn’t look cheap anymore but rather solid, and the whole thing became far more story-driven instead of just these demon-of-the-week kind of episodes that we were mostly used to. In short, I immensely enjoyed this season, and I think the improvements to the first season are so obvious and drastic that I now just can’t wait to see what the third season might look like!
Next up, I just recently found out that the Carmilla movie was already available, and, of course, I watched it right away.
To be quite honest, the most iconic part of the web-series—that being the video diary aspect of the show—was always what bothered me the most. I guess if you don’t have the budget, this is a great way of getting the whole story across without the risk of having very bad-looking fight scenes and such. To have them happen off-screen was a good solution, but it made the whole thing feel a little boring after a while.
The new movie now totally got rid of this, and we were finally able to see the whole story, plus the unexpected appearance of Waverly, or, well, Dominique Provost-Chalkley, as the villain of the show. It in general felt like a big step up from the previous seasons in many, many ways.
Furthermore, there were plenty more moments between Laura and Carmilla, most of which even cuter than what we were already used to. Seeing them in an actual (working) relationship, living together and all, it’s just extremely enjoyable to watch. Their chemistry is seriously outstanding and should I mention there was a pretty long sex scenes in the movie as well? Like damn, there is just so much I can take and this scene might have been a little too much for my fragile heart. 😀
So yeah, needless to say, I did enjoy this movie quite a lot, and I’d be thrilled to see more of them in the future.
Last but not least, do I have any more recommendations?
Unfortunately no. I have to admit, I every once in a while google for more lesbian movies or TV shows, and I did find quite a few, but so far, I didn’t like that many more. Below Her Mouth was one of the ones that I just couldn’t enjoy for some reason. Same for Blue is the Warmest Color. Oh well, if you have any recommendations for me, feel free. I’m open for more~
