Soap magazines and network suits might say the word “fan” as if it’s a nasty word.
But if loving this fan’s GL video is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
What this gets so right – and what many people think is missing from all of the shows right now – is a tie between past and present. There’s a delicate balance, a place where history informs what you do and how you move forward without become an albatross around your neck. GL is becoming better about those kinds of ties, but sometimes, fans have the best memories – and are therefore a show’s best resource.
