Luckily, Season 2 of Carmilla has started streaming, which pretty much decided things for me.
Vervegirl TV and told through the eyes of Laura, a student in Silas University that is investigating her best friend's mysterious disappearance and the appearance of the weird Carmilla right after.
A little note: when I say loosely based, I do mean... Loosely based. In the best way possible; the message of the series is just about the opposite of the novella, and basically just uses the premise of a lesbian vampire.
Yep, thats right. LESBIAN VAMPIRE.
Heck, some of my best friends are gay but I've never been big on "Gay Shows", and yet this one is just amazing.
My favorite part of this series is actually how Lesbiasm is protrayed. Its a show that really speaks equality because not for one second does somebody ask "oh, you're a lesbian?". There is no big revelation of this fact. They're all just 100% accepting of this fact and embracing them, from episode 1, even the straight guys. No one's discussing it because there is nothing weird, or out of the ordinary, or brave or anything about being gay. It's an acceptable part of society, which means it is true equality, and it's delightful!
The show has got an amazing kickass female-centered cast, who are all great actors (and highly attractive, too). They play their characters believably, like they are them. You'll never once think "oh, that sounded fake" or "that's so scripted". In other words, the acting is top-notch and every character is very different from one another, and is important to the plot. No one is there for no reason!!
|The amazing cast, in all their glory!|
So, yeah. Crazy stuff. But all done so amazingly.
|Being Kick Ass. Being Surprising. Being unexpected. Being WTf.|
First up, we've got Dani x Laura
Then we have Carmilla x Laura
Aaaand... Perry x LaFontaine
Basically - it's GREAT FUN! It's definitely one of those underrated web series than needs more viewership, so get on with it! You can now binge watch the entire first season (which I just did again while writing this post), and then get caught up on the second one!
