So just as every other New TV Season, I’ve taken it upon myself to watch every new show there is, push myself through it and see what’s what. Some end up great, some end up not so much. Some get through to a season 2, some get canceled… Oh, who am I kidding, 75% to 90% get canceled whether they’re great or not!

Fall of 2012 was no different  so I decided that this time around I’m going to share my thoughts, and either give you all a good chance to avoid the muck, or take a chance on something that you may end up falling in love with (even if it is ripped away from your heart in December or April…).

(*POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD…YOU’VE BEEN WARNED*)

IF you haven’t been locked in a room without windows and doors, then you may have noticed a definite increase in a certain aspect of comics lately that in the recent past has only been occasional, and further back was not only absent, but discouraged. I’m speaking of the appearance of homosexuality in comics. In the past few years, we’ve seen a gay male character be introduced to Archie Comics, and the introduction of several prominent lesbian characters in DC Comics (through Batwoman, Renee Montoya, Scandal Savage, Knockout, Grace Choi, and Thunder). These characters have not only been masterfully written and long overdue in our comics, but have been largely accepted by the comics community, with the exception of several anti-equal rights groups (many of whom have never read a comic book in their lives).

More recently, however, we’ve seen a jump in some major plots that will be showcasing these characters and some major plot lines. These include the biracial marriage of Kevin Keller (Archie Comics’ gay male character), the biracial marriage of Marvel’s Northstar (who has been open about his sexuality since the early 90’s), and the announcement that one of DC’s “iconic male characters” will be revealed as gay.

Traditionally, nature abhors letting opposites mingle with each other. Cats must hate dogs, apples detest oranges, Trekkies cannot enjoy the “Wars”. Obviously these absolutes do not always dictate reality, though they are often perceived that way none-the-less. Another paradoxical term long believed by many to be true is the sport-loving nerd. I can here the thoughts now, “Blasphemy!”, “Sacrilege!”, “False Prophet!”. But, my friends, I am here to tell you that sometimes, this can exist. Barriers all over the world are falling every day. Human being are no longer necessarily cool or uncool, jock or geek, plumber or scientist. It is possible to be from both worlds, now more than ever. If “Revenge of the Nerds” has taught me anything, it’s that we are all nerds in some way, and even guys like Fred “The Ogre” Palowakski can see the light.

"NEEEERRRRRRRDDDDDSSSSS!"
