Don't Trust The B in Apt 23, by the way, is a genuinely funny Bechdel-acing womance created by a queer woman of color. It's about a hardworking, innocent Midwesterner named June (Dreama Walker, who you may remember as Zach's evil girlfriend on The Good Wife) who moves to New York and becomes roommates with a chaotic neutral-edging-on-evil amoral conartist party troll named Chloe (Krysten Ritter, who you may know from that show we don't talk about or Breaking Bad), who is best friends with James van der Beek, who you may remember from being James van der Beek. (HE PLAYS HIMSELF AND IT IS GLORIOUS) Also the title comes from Robin (played by Liza Lapira who you may remember from Dexter or NCIS), the lady down the hall who doesn't so much think Chloe is a bitch as she's actually in love with her.

1) had NO IDEA THAT Apt 23 was created by a QUEER! WOMAN! OF COLOR!

Going to watch the PANTS off of it.

Also just saw Dreama Walker in Compliance, and holy wow. AUTHENTIC ACTING.

I really want to watch Apt 23 but I hate James van der Beek's face too much, and I know it's self-mocking, but I think it's creepy that the first episode had him sleeping with crazy fangirls. >:( Ah well, there's still gifs and femslash.

Did you like The Mindy Project? I love that lady and her writing a lot, but the trailer didn't wow me.
