Hey so I finished spartacus a while back and am currently watching black sails and loving the gayness of both TV shows and I'm thinking about starting Da Vinci's Demons. Now I did some research and aparently there's like one gay kiss in the entire series? Please tell me there's actually more to it than that? Cause if not it won't even be worth watching for me. I'm bored of hetero characters.
This being said, would anyone like to advise TV shows like spartacus and black sails with gay characters?
I heard some things about penny dreadful but not a lot. I'd appreciate a description of the TV show :)
>loving the gayness
I always think faggotry in tv shows feels forced and contrived, like it's intentionally trying to pander to fags and homo-loving SJWs who feel good when they see diversity in a series. It always ruins a show for me.
Oh poor crybaby I guess you'll just have to watch the 30000 other shows and movies that only contain gay characters when it's a weirdo villain. Poor crybaby.
It's ridiculous how much one has to search for a piece of entertainment where one of the characters just happens to be gay (not lesbian).
I've only seen the first few episodes of DaVinci's Demons a long time ago and it was garbage. DaVinci's himself is portrayed as especially a "I don't care what gender, I just wanna fuck" dudebro and the first actual gay character they introduce is a big whiny fem that betrays DaVinci because he didn't give him the d or some shit.

Which is why I'm in love with black sails rn
but more people sympathize with them. Literally the only reason people add gays in their shows is to get social justice brownie points.
What a catty faggot. Who cares if there's no shows with gay characters? Why pander to a minuscule part of the population? We shouldn't have gays being role models, last thing we need is to reinforce the idea that being gay is "cool" or something.
that's not true bro. sometimes gay characters get added to shows because a writer/actor/producer/etc is gay themselves. and a lot of the time it happens because writers are creative people and writing the same exact people over and over and over again is boring and not very creative.
whether or not the characters are actually well-written and well-acted is another story of course.
there's some lesbianism (mainly that blonde-bi-slut-breaks-a-brunette-dykes-heart trope kind) but there's some full main gay shit later in season 2, starts subtle then just oh wow they really did it. Then it just goes flat out violence which is great.
No being gay isn't cool and neither is being straight its just a thing that exists and what makes having a gay couple in the show so great is, as >>5615325
said, its something different for once and it's not the the boring hetero "OH DO THEY FALL IN LOVE AND HAVE ALL THE BABIES?!" shit. PLUS its not pandering to a miniscule population. Gay people in TV shows make a lot of people happy. For instance: fan girls, yaoi/yuri enthusiasts, allies, basically anyone who doesn't care if a love interest is between a man x woman or a man x man or a woman x woman just as long as its written well and acted well to the point where it would make the watcher feel something for the characters. Yeah it could be brownie points but so fucking what, if its done well then its done fucking well.
>I always think faggotry in tv shows feels forced and contrived
Because it is.
Then again that goes for all romance in movies.
A pointless addition that for 99.999999% of times doesn't add anything to the plot and thus is better removed.

That's a very long list for people who do not matter.
