I’ve had some fond memories on my mind of late: 30 years ago today I, along with my exchange trip group, sat down for a farewell dinner at a hotel in St Petersburg, Russia, on our last night before leaving the country (we would board a train to Helsinki the next day and have a … Continue reading Mementos of the USSR

A really simple, syrupy short of lesbians meeting in a professional environment and one slipping the other her number. At 9 minutes there's not a lot of story and only 3 characters but it is seriously cute and worth the watch even with some technical issues (the focus is often slightly out.) This is an … Continue reading Dyke Media Watch: Meet Cute (2020)
Due to off-topic banter among some coworkers who joined a conference call early I realized: it's right about 4 years since the last time my first wife and I talked.

Oh what a beautiful sapphic mess! There's no way I can summarize this series. It starts with a lesbian catfishing straight women on an online dating site and goes on from there in incredible fashion. I definitely recommend it. The final episode is the perfect payoff and the dialog from the therapist is fantastic.

Three generations of women have a lake house vacation during which the past and present demand to be examined. I struggle to write a sufficient summary of this because it's firmly in the "I was not emotionally prepared for that" file while being an absolutely fantastic film. This one hits a lot of points about … Continue reading Dyke Media Watch: Snapshots (2018)
Sure, you can take one budget horror movie, slice it into episodes then give it an equally budget second season, but just because you can doesn't mean you should. Crazy Bitches was a 2014 horror film that was cut up into 10 episodes to make a serial then an 8 episode second season was created … Continue reading Dyke Media Watch: Crazy Bitches
