  2. Crappy video. too much background noise. If they new they were making this as a news segment, why didn't they find a studio?

  3. Jesus Christ, who is that hairy moustache stud in the first picture. Can the show be all about him in a steam room? Or maybe a porn spinoff?

  9. Are you being paid to promote this show?

    Posted by: Justin | Jan 11, 2014 12:20:30 PM


  10. A show about "contemporary San Francisco" and no Asians in the main cast? Must be a different San Francisco they're basing their show on.

  11. Finally; the spectacular Murray Bartlett in a role he might be naked! YEAH!!!

  12. I believe the show features black, Latino, white, Asian, male, female, gay, straight, younger and older characters.

  13. I recently watched a movie on Apple TV with a really hot guy in it that turned out to be Murray Bartlett. It's called August, pretty interesting movie.

    He's gay in real life too.

  14. I was lucky enough to see an advanced screener of the first 4 episodes. very enjoyable. very similar to Weekend. I may have to get HBO now.

  15. It seems like Girls for gay men, no?

    Posted by: Alex N | Jan 11, 2014 3:35:25 PM


  16. For those worshipping at the Murray Bartlett altar, you can already see quite a bit of him in the gay indie film, "August" done back in 2011. Available for rent at Amazon for $3.99.

  17. Still pissed that none of the main characters are Asian, Black, Latino, etc. It's 2014 IN SF, WTF?!

    Posted by: Ulu | Jan 11, 2014 6:35:58 PM


  18. Supporting character roles depicting non-whites are not enough = back of the bus

    Posted by: Ulu | Jan 11, 2014 6:37:12 PM


  19. I'm not defending the show's demographics, but SF is about 42% white, 33% Asian, 15% Latino/Hispanic, and 6% black. Whites tend to be the most visibly out because it's more culturally accepted. (I've never met a closeted white guy, but have met closeted members of the other three groups.) And for geographic, social, economic, or whatever other reasons, there is sadly little interaction among these groups. The most is among Asians and whites, but even then places like the Castro are almost entirely white. (Not that I spend much time there; it's pretty dull.)

    I'm not defending or promoting it, but that's the way things remain, even in 2014.

  20. "Still pissed that none of the main characters are Asian, Black, Latino, etc. "

    I think Frankie Alvarez would have something to say about that.

  21. So it's like Girls, but gay.

    Posted by: ian | Jan 11, 2014 9:16:51 PM


  22. Sorry, Paul, I lived in San Francisco for 15 years and didn't know any group of gay men that wasn't culturally/ethnically diverse. As Chuy wrote, this seems like an alternate universe from the city so many of us lived, loved, and partied in.

  23. I wish they had paid 10% as much attention to microphone placement as they did to the "set design" (pots of grass).

    Seriously, absolutely all of the content is in the audio (there's no other reason to do an interview), and that's the last thing they pay attention to. The video needed subtitles in order to get the information across!

    Amateurs.

  24. Just what the gay community needs. Another gay show shoving Whites as the epitome of gay male beauty in our face. And the morons of gay media and its dimwitted followers acting like it's something new.

    It's the same old crap, just different White (or light) faces. And before any moron tries to say, "the cast isn't only White", if such is the case,...the why does Instinct, Out, The Advocate, and every gay media source keep using pics of a White cast member to promote this "show"?

    And I put "show" in quotes for those very reasons. It's a waste of television for waste products to view.

    KISS THE RAINBOW, people!
