One part fantasy and two parts silly, "The Okay List" is the creation of Heather Pieske and Sarah Pappalardo—yes, that Sarah from the Vp family of yesteryear. The new webseries, which is set in NYC and uses all queer actors, is a take on the idea of the "cheat list," the list that some couples have in which each individual can list a handful of people—usually celebrities—who they can "cheat" on their partners with. Instead of appropriating the trope as-is, Heather and Sarah decided to put a twist on it: they can only have a threesome with a dead female historical figure.
This is brilliant—because, REALLY, the only way to not offend your partner is by conjuring up the image of a dead historical maybe-lesbian. WHO COULD DISAGREE WITH THAT?
In the first episode, Heather and Sarah charm the flight gear off Amelia Earhart. However, in the second episode they encounter a bit more resistance with Joan of Arc.
Who is on your "ok" list?
