We're all just people too

I've really been enjoying the new show Lethal Weapon (which has already been renewed, YAY) and was impressed with how they updated it to be even more inclusive with POCs but in last night's episode it got even more inclusive- when calling the Captain (the only white character other than Riggs) but needing to make sure no one knows who he's talking to, Roger tells the Captain to pretend he's "Todd".... who is apparently the Captain's husband. Now, a previous episode had the Captain bemoaning a visit with his inlaws so I'd assumed he was your basic straight, white boring character. Way to prove me wrong, show!!

I am loving this new trend in shows- Timeless earlier had the Department of Homeland Security agent in charge invite Lucy to her house to meet her wife and kids.

Captain Avery and Agent Christopher are just people, their sexual preference is just a small part of who they are not the entirety of their characterization. This is a great trend, Hollywood. Keep it up.
