    Ridiculous yes, but what they present as acceptable and unacceptable is a pretty reliable indication of evolving near-term mainstream morality.

  2. Eric says

    I really don’t get the “not on the lips stage kiss” comment. This is by far the first kiss on OLTL and some of them have been pretty damn heated. Not to mention Fish is played by a hot gay actor. Honestly, I’ve had my touch and go moments with this whole storyline, but I have to say Fish’s speech to the homophobic protesters was awe inspiring.

    Eric, are you blind? Look at the character on the right. He’s formed his lips into a wall. The guy on the left is full on kissing and the guy on the right is holding back.

    Ummm, did one of the gays leave another gay at the altar for another guy? Jesus, even in soaps we’re so predictable.

    what a topsy-turvy world… cartoons are now sophisticated enough for adults, and live-action dramas are childish enough to pass for cartoon plots! are all soap operas like this?
    i do applaud what it signals for lgbt visibility, though.

  5. Gary says

    Great! Now that we’ve educated the unemployed, we just need to get them off the couch and out the door to vote.

  6. Bobby says

    It’s been a great storyline and the actors, directers and writers have done an incredible job.

    Why people have to knock anything that is potraying homosexuals in a positive light is beyond me and very juvenile.

    Dr. Dorian Cramer Callison, Santi, Vickers, Laurence, Lord Buchanan is a lesbian? I need to watch OLTL!

  8. Joseph says

    Not all people who watch soap operas are unemployed. I’m fully employed, but I still watch the show every night when I get home from work. Right now, OLTL is one of the best-written and best-acted soaps on the air, and the ONLY network program to prominently feature a gay couple as a major storyline. Why people feel the need to attack the audience for soap operas is something I’ll never understand; I can’t stand sci-fi or fantasy, but I wouldn’t denigrate somebody else who enjoys such programs.
