The Playboy ClubDVR This Thursday, October 6th, 2011
There are three gay things about The Playboy Club that have flown under the radar: 1) The lead bunny, blonde bombshell Amber Heard, is an out lesbian. 2) A major subplot involves funneling tips to the Mattachine Society, the 1960s gay rights group. 3) Eddie Cibrian seems to be contractually obliged to take off his shirt. Sure, the show is silly, but it’s also fun. Support it! Footloose
The remake of the 1984 dance-and-rebellion movie comes out on Oct. 14, so it’s a good time to re-watch the original. Kevin Bacon moves to a small town from the big city and he wants to dance and date Lori Singer, the daughter of a stern preacher who thinks dancing leads to Satan. The plotting is silly, but the soundtrack and dancing is 1980s awesome. The movie rightfully made Bacon a star.
