Log in to Reply sillytee January 21, 2014 gonnna watch it later.. just glad there arent any ‘prettyboys’ or ‘twinks’ as the leads..these gentlemen look like real men.. Log in to Reply bobbyew January 21, 2014 Love the cast. I just hope it gets better. I was bored with the 25 minute episode. As a gay man and it being in my favorite city I was hoping it would be a little more on the raw side. Hopefully it will last and delve deeper into these characters lives. Log in to Reply Jon January 21, 2014 I enjoyed the premiere and will stick with it for all 8 episodes. I found all 3 men attractive especially Agustin and the guy Paddy met on the bus. I’m starving for any entertainment til Drag Race starts up again! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott January 21, 2014 I haven’t seen it yet but plan to soon. I already like that it is not like Queer As Folk where the characters are coming out and getting comfy within themselves about being gay. Nice we are beyond THAT. :beer: Log in to Reply gslam January 21, 2014 Wow…I’m surprised by the positive results. I thought the show was terribly boring. Log in to Reply heatherwebber10010 January 21, 2014 I thought it very trite and super contrived. Log in to Reply Yoryla January 21, 2014 Haven’t seen it yet but definitely plan to! Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones January 21, 2014 Just slightly more boring than watching clothes spin in a dryer. Log in to Reply blake3b January 21, 2014 I know what you mean Jon! RuPaul’s Drag Race usually starts at this time of year but now it’s premiering on February 24th!?!?!?! Don’t do this to us Ru! It’s bad enough my American Horror Story: Coven only has two episodes left, this Wednesday and the finale next Wednesday. Sigh. Log in to Reply luverica January 21, 2014 I’m kind of in-between. I didn’t exactly love it but I’m far from hating it. I actually like it and look forward to the next episode. I’m just taking it episode by episode. I’m just glad that in one episode that it shows to have better writing and more likable characters than Queer as Folk. I’m intrigued. Log in to Reply pferrando January 21, 2014 It was okay. Too soon to say “yes” or “no”, but will definitely keep watching for now. Log in to Reply Santa_Barbara_4Ever January 21, 2014 I did not like Murray Bartlett on GL (I think it was just that I didn’t like his character). But man oh man, the things I would do to him now with that 70′s porn mustache, killer smile and just HOT ass body! Lord I thought I would NEVER be saying that about him!!! Log in to Reply logan_echolls January 22, 2014 I didn’t see it but for those who did, is it better than Noah’s Arc? Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon January 22, 2014 logan, Noah’s Arc will never be topped. I don’t mean that literally, of course. Log in to Reply pferrando January 22, 2014 Ha!!! ^^^ Log in to Reply sillytee January 22, 2014 anything is better than that crapfest that was Noah’s Arc. Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 January 22, 2014 I felt somewhere in the middle. Will I watch the next episode? Probably. I just like seeing SF. It’s 8 episodes, I’ll probably stick it out. Log in to Reply jeremy in chicago January 23, 2014 Super boring, contrived dialogue, meh cast. Every stereotype imaginable. Half the episode was watching the very milquetoast Jonathan Groff type on his computer or look at his phone. And whoever dressed him should be shot. Won’t be watching it again. Log in to Reply pferrando January 23, 2014 As a shallow typical gay man, I don’t mind people trashing me for saying that I wanted hotter men on my screen. Bartlett is definitely the hottest. Log in to Reply harlee490 January 30, 2014 Mixed reviews I guess? J) I personally haven’t watched but I knew it was on but it just isn’t my taste from the previews and gay men lifestyles. HBO has been plugging the hell out of this show. I know SF is the gay capital in states but what isn’t appealing to me, not every gay person men or women lives in SF, NYC, Chicago, LA etc. I’m glad shows are portraying gay people but jeez…gay people are everywhere in this great country so why not use it? Like everywhere gays are living there life and there is a vibe in all area of the regions where we congregate, we call home….being in mid-west isn’t west coast or New England area isn’t east coast, southern states isn’t the mid-west…expand Hollywood we have a great overflowing of gay mixture of people living, working, loving in the good ole USA! :bigsmile: Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
