It's been a week. Are you still thinking about the trailer for Cats? It's okay, we understand. This is a safe space for you. The trailer for the big-screen CGI-heavy adaptation of the musical Cats has been on our minds near constantly lately. Can you blame us? It's the perfect pop culture accompaniment to this long and very hot summer. We're counting down the days until December so we can see the madness for ourselves. Until then, check out our top 10 most-read posts on SYFY WIRE FANGRRLS from the past seven days!

 - Witchcraft and sex in Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a deeply sexual show that doesn’t always nail complicated sexual discourse but does allow young women to have sexual agency to greater or lesser degrees, as evidenced through the sexy witchy romance between Willow and Tara.

 - Alien: Covenant and the exploitative experimentation on marginalized women

The fate of Prometheus' heroine, Elizabeth Shaw, in Alien: Covenant is a horrifying example of forced experimentation on women, a common sci-fi trope, but it's also one that has roots in oft-overlooked history.

Eleven's had more than her fair share of makeovers on Stranger Things, but the new season of the Netflix show let her choose her own style for a change.

 - Disney's live-action Mulan doesn't have to erase its bisexual icon

The first trailer for Disney's live-action remake of Mulan got fans excited, but our own Jessica Toomer is also hoping the new movie doesn't erase its heroine's status as a bisexual icon.
