“A pep rally for queer women on TV.”

- Beandrea July, The Hollywood Reporter

“An affecting look at geekdom and the way that affection for fictional characters can

bring people together and help them to assert themselves in the wider world… You won't

need to be a geek yourself to be left with a big smile on your face.”

- Jennie Kermode, Eye For Film
