A recent spoiler has been leaked that made me react in the following way: “This is a bad idea.”

And yet, there are numerous people that feel excited about this idea. Klaine are reportedly getting engaged. Even the most casual Glee viewers know that people love Klaine unconditionally. I liked them a lot at one point myself, and there is something thrilling about seeing two gay teens in love on a network television show that’s widely watched.

However, I think the excitement of seeing this gay couple on television has blinded some people to the reality of Klaine. They have so many issues that we have yet to see them talk about. There’s been a betrayal of trust. There’s been lack of communication. You could argue so much more. But I feel like people overlook this simply because it’s a gay couple portrayed by two popular actors.

Now, think back to when Finn proposed to Rachel. Think about how the majority of fans said, “They’re in high school,” or “They’re too young for marriage,” And yes, there are plenty of people who are saying the same things about Klaine. But there are more people who are saying they’re excited to see Kurt say yes, even after all the struggle Kurt has been through with Blaine after their break-up. So, what makes Finchel so different than Klaine? It’s that they’re not gay.

There are other differences you could argue, as every relationship is unique. However, we’re going through a revolutionary time in history. Only in the past 10-20 years has gay marriage been legal anywhere. Only very recently are people really standing up and saying that gays deserve the right to be married, adopt children, be out in the military, and be treated like everyone else.

However, in the case of Klaine, I think we’ve tipped past the belief that they’re gay, so they should be thought of as equal, and into the belief that they’re gay, so they must be better. This is not true.

Speaking as a member of the LGBT community myself, I can honestly say that there are plenty of negative examples of gay couples out there. Gay couples argue, break up, and experience abusive relationships. They can also have great, supportive moments, stay together for a long time, raise children, and be happy together. They’re actually… just like straight couples. Not exactly like straight couples. We do have our unique challenges, but we’re really not that different. We all, as humans, want the same type of things from a relationship: Love, respect, support, etc. Of course, everyone has their specific requirements, but the basic ingredients are the same.

At least as of late, I see no reason for Kurt and Blaine to even date again. They’ve been apart, and we haven’t seen them acknowledge the problems in their relationship (beyond the cheating), to themselves or others. We haven’t seen them make any changes. Although we’ve seen Blaine regret cheating, there were several factors that led up to him deciding to cheat. Even if he never cheats again, what’s to stop him from suffering the awful feelings that were in their relationship?

So really, why should Kurt simply agree to marry Blaine right now (with what we know of the show, at least. Of course, there are still many details we don’t know yet)?

Of course, as a lesbian, I’d love to see marriage equality. I’d love to see a wonderful gay wedding on a popular show. But it has to be under the right circumstances, and Kurt and Blaine are far away from the right circumstance at the moment. Maybe the writers’ intention is just to support marriage equality. And that’s exactly what I want with Glee. Equality. If it’s stupid for Finn and Rachel to get married right after high school, then it’s equally stupid for Kurt and Blaine to get married or engaged right after high school. All of them have a lot of growing up to do. Sometimes people can grow together, but sometimes they grow apart. Maybe Klaine can grow together, but I don’t want them to get married just because they’re gay and cute. Just like I don’t want Finchel to get married because they sometimes have cute moments. I don’t even want any of them to get married because they love each other. I need to see them be good for each other, understand each other, and be in a healthy relationship together. Until that happens, I see no reason for a Klaine wedding.

Warm up those microscopes — Bill Nye is coming back to television thanks to Netflix!

Netflix has announced Bill Nye Saves the World, a new talk show slated for Spring 2017.

In a statement, Netflix says “each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.”

“Since the start of the Science Guy show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science,” said Bill Nye in a press release.

“Today, I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we’ll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change. With the right science and good writing, we’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we’ll change the world a little.”

Netflix also promises that “In Bill’s unfiltered style, he will bring in special guests, conduct experiments and demonstrations, and ultimately let the facts lead the argument.”

Bill Nye is best known for Bill Nye the Science Guy, the half-hour PBS show that ran from 1993 through 1998.

The theme song is iconic. Science RULES!

The new Netflix series seems like a continuation of Bill Nye the Science Guy, so we’re very excited for the new show to launch in 2017.

The first Sherlock series 4 trailer premiered last month at San Diego Comic-Con, where Cumberbatch teased that “a lot comes home to roost this season… it’s ballsy.” Indeed, the trailer suggests that the characters have a lot to be concerned about. Check it out below:

The new season of Sherlock doesn’t have a premiere date, but it’s expected to launch in late 2016 or early 2017. Perhaps today’s portrait release suggests that some more news is on the horizon!

The last season of Sherlock aired in early 2015, but the busy schedules of Cumberbatch and Freeman have left the show with production challenges.

Coming as absolutely no surprise whatsoever, Netflix is bringing Stranger Things back for a second season!

Can we get a YAAAS?

Netflix’s hugely successful ’80s horror series Stranger Things has been renewed for season 2. The news hit Wednesday morning, and fans are already losing their minds (as well they should).

Here’s Netflix’s official announcement video:

The video plays the show’s eerie theme, over what appears to be the season 2 episode titles: “MadMax,” “The Boy Who Came Back to Life,” “The Pumpkin Patch,” “The Palace,” “The Storm,” “The Pollywog,” “The Secret Cabin,” “The Brain,” and “The Lost Brother.”

Netflix has confirmed that there will be nine episodes of Stranger Things season 2. Writers/creators Matt and Ross Duffer will return, along with executive producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. No news of cast changes yet, although we know that four new characters will be showing up.

We’re stoked to see this awesome series return for a second season. No spoilers, but Stranger Things season 1 kind of ended on a major cliffhanger, which needs to be resolved.

While we’re glad to have official confirmation that the show is returning, there never really was a question, considering the series’ popularity. In fact, we’ve already compiled a list of 60 questions the show needs to answer.

The Duffer brothers have also been pretty candid about their future plans for the series, hinting that season 2 will pick up at least a year after the first season ended. They’re further implying that the show could continue for as many as seven seasons, to mirror Harry Potter and allow us to watch the kids grow up.

“I think we talked like a larger time jump where the kids are older now and it’s a different decade,” Ross Duffer tells EW. “That’s something we batted around from the very beginning. But for us, there’s still more story here, there’s still things that are unresolved.”

But first, let’s wait and see if Stranger Things season 2 can maintain the momentum of season 1. As much as we love Netflix series, they’ve been kind of hit-and-miss with their second seasons.
