News & Interviews for Visible: Out on Television: Miniseries
This terrific series gets off to a slightly inauspicious start with an exhausting cascade of soundbite after soundbite after soundbite... After that, though, it gets seriously fascinating.
It's gripping and touching and funny and heartwarming, but most impressively, it's unrelenting.
Its in-depth study of a seemingly impossible subject to sum up is very impressive -- and, I daresay, necessary.
Occasionally, it defaults to broad brushstrokes... Still, it is an elegant education, and its vast library of footage makes for a smorgasbord of queer entertainment.
While we remember many of these big moments, what White has done is to meticulously connect the dots -- drawing in lines that history has a way of rendering, well, invisible.
Visible is a binge-worthy and entertaining series that shows the trajectory of LGBTQ lives both on and off screen and why queer stories need - and need to continue - to be told.
It's a strong, beautiful statement about the transformative power of seeing yourself reflected in popular culture. The movement has come so far, but it still has further to go.
It is a valuable documentary not only for its subject, but for its ability to walk, in a very pleasant way, through seventy years of TV history. [Full Review in Spanish]
While it feels like a 101-level course in LGBTQIA+ representation in TV, Visible: Out On Television is still a good overview of just how far the medium has come in this regard, and how far it has to go.
