Get ready for Axeholes, Emily Andras’ new Syfy show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Wynonna Earp showrunner’s new show “ follows a mismatched bunch of comic convention attendees who inadvertently get transported into the real-life world of their favorite fantasy TV series, Blue Bar’Bara. In the worst role-playing game ever, the unequipped party must learn to navigate a dangerous land of profanity-spewing battle axes, sociopathic fairies, disturbingly sensual dragons and a chainmail-bikini-wearing shield maiden as they struggle to find a way back home. ” We don’t know if there will be a major queer presence on the show yet, but knowing Andras, she probably had something great up her sleeve. Crossing our fingers it gets picked up!

Bachelor in Paradise changes the rules and breaks new ground with contestant Demi. Honestly, I never thought I’d be posting a clip of Bachelor in Paradise ever, but here we are. This season, contestant Demi, who is a fan favorite, has been very conflicted about her experience because she fell for a woman named Kristian before the show started filming. In an unprecedented move, the show brought Kristian to “paradise” to be with Demi.
