  1. I hope it's good and well written.

  2. If, for no other reason, it'll be a nice diversion from the usual shot-in-Toronto/Vancouver fare.

  3. The don't look gay. Two resemble Illegals. Take another trip down the gay depiction road. HBO usually gets it.

  7. Seab22: Rick, is that you? You're the only person on this site who'd be so blatantly racist.

  9. But the gays who don’t look gays are usually the ones you find on those hook-up sites. Tru-story.

  10. Can someone please explain why the moderators on this site don't delete the racist comments?

  11. @Sean22 - They don't look gay? Well, Jonathan Groff is gay IRL, and Murray Bartlett convincingly played gay (and very hotly so) in the indie film "August."

  12. I don't understand why a show about the new generation of gays is set in San Fransisco. All the gays I saw in San Fransisco looked like they've been there since the 70's.

  13. Not only did Murray play gay convincingly in more than just August, he is also gay IRL as well.
