In this episode of The Web of Queer we review the Torchwood story Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and discuss the trope of the greedy bisexual.
In Kiss Kiss Bang Bang we talk about the group dynamics between the team, both professional and personal. What relationships are progressing, which ones are stopping, and why? What was the Time Agency really like and how does John Hart’s arrival stir the pot?
In our discussion we tackle the media’s portrayal of fictional bisexuals and pansexuals, and what impact that has for people in the real world. What do Jack, John and Ianto’s stories tell an audience? What stereotypes might they be reinforcing? And how do stereotypes affect bisexual and pansexual people's lives?
