The Experience Movie Review from @kleffnotes

Katerina Gorshkov’s feature debut The Experience ties together a variety of genres under the umbrella of a teen coming of age story through the lens of Scarlet, Allison Kove, and her time at a wilderness camp designed to help her stop acting out. Once she arrives at this camp we see her working through her previous experiences from recent years as well as repressed elements from her childhood. As we bounce through these memories, we also see her father’s life outside of his daughter, which is far more dangerous than his family ever knew.

The Third Dekkoo Series Review from @kleffnotes

Dekkoo presents a new and provocative series, The Third, that showcases nontraditional families and ways of life. The show focuses on Jason, a twenty-nine year old gay man, who has sort of unexpectedly found himself part of a triad relationship. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this sort of relationship type, the series You, Me, Her has touched on it slightly. An established couple brings in a third person to be part of their relationship in both of these series, though this is not always how a triad is created. In this case Jason has found himself attracted to two men who are already in a committed and primarily monogamous relationship. Continue reading “The Third Dekkoo Series Review from @kleffnotes”

Everyone has a secret in this science-fiction drama.

3030 @REVRYTV Review from @kleffnotes

3030 is a Revry Original Series that recently released a second season in April of this year. Inspired by 90’s sitcoms like Living Single and Martin, with elements of Seinfeld like humor this series creates a humorous story focused on two platonic lesbians living together in Las Vegas. The first season, which is already available on Revry, focuses on Zola, Serrita Coleman, moving in with her best friend of 20 years, Tyler, B. Danielle Watkins.

The Bi Line: ImBIbing in Something New from @kleffnotes

With 2019 starting today I wanted to try and do something new for The Nerdy Girl Express. I have been debating about doing an article series that would focus on LGBTQ+ topics, but hadn’t really had the time to sit down and focus on how to start it. Today seemed like the perfect day. Now in case you didn’t know my name is Katherine and I am an out bi woman. I typically just say bi instead of bisexual, just my personal preference, and I sometimes think up terrible puns involving the word bi. Ages ago I started thinking about the word byline, which is the part of an article that names a writer. Well as someone who is bi it seemed that it could be perfectly altered to use for my own needs.

@ClexaCon London Small Panel YouTube Additions from @kleffnotes

After releasing some of their larger panels, ClexaCon posted a number of videos of their smaller panels from ClexaCon London. I took a bit of time to check out the new additions and wanted to share a bit about them with those who either couldn’t attend the convention or might have missed out on some of these panels. While the larger panels are always great, smaller panels help to focus more on specific issues and populations within the community that don’t always get discussed in the bigger rooms.

Ship It Book Review ( @brittashipsit ) from @kleffnotes

Ship It is a book I have been hearing about for over a year. I know it hasn’t even been out that long, but seriously I know I had heard about it way before it ever released. Britta Lundin, who happens to be connected to one of my current television obsessions on The CW, announced that she would have a book coming out focusing on fandom and fanfiction titled Ship It. I had the chance to briefly chat with her at ClexaCon, but wasn’t luck enough to win a book and when I got back to small town Ohio I could not find a copy of it anywhere. I searched high and low and finally, after a bit of a wait, managed to snag one of the digital copies of it through my public library. Ship It is so much more than I ever imagined and the characters are so much more complex than I ever could have guessed just from the book description. I was completely glued to my screen the entire time I was reading. Continue reading “Ship It Book Review ( @brittashipsit ) from @kleffnotes”
