As requests for adds kept coming, “Hey, have you seen this?” “I think you’d love this one!”, inevitably of dramas I was in the process of simulcasting (and loving) I realized we were past due for an update to the LGBT or BL lists. Factually speaking, I’m earlier than usual, but, as the majority of you reading are gulping down BL at a rate almost as fast as mine, I’ve come to the other realization… I need to update the lists at a faster pace. Maybe I should squee here on the site over what shows are being consumed during the weekly BL and Bubbles sessions instead of just the podcast? Anyway, we have some fun ones this time around, some I’m watching or are on the calendar to watch as soon as they become available. (Yes, there is a BL and Bubbles calendar.)
I’m excited about this round as, when possible, I’ve also added in teasers!
