I just finished the first season of QAF, guys. Wow! How glad am I that I don't have to wait to see what happens? This was my first real exposure to the show, having only seen a few downloaded snippets on the internets previously. "Groundbreaking" gets tossed around a lot, but for the U.S. anyway, it's apt. Brokeback pup tent sex kinda pales by comparison. Honestly, my house is a bit of a fish tank, all windows and french doors, so I had to be conscious of not scandalizing the neighbors by watching this show after dark. I know what you're thinking--pull a blind, Mike! Problem is I'm redoing a few things, preparing my house for sale, so for now I have 4 large bare windows around my fave tv watching spot. Where was I? Oh yeah, the show. I'm really enjoying it. It doesn't take itself too seriously and I don't feel it really depicts typical gay life (except maybe Bodhi's), but it has some wonderful moments. The last episode of the season took me for a ride from the opening scene which gave me the serious RP's, to the rather cringe inducing prom scene where the Face of God sweeps in and the dance floor clears (ouch), to the incredible poignancy of the emotions written all over Brian's face as Mikey rubs his neck in that final scene in the hospital. Brotha Gale acted the shit out of that. And thank you Target for discounting the second season which I already have queued up and ready for the weekend.
Oh, and while I'm talking TV, they are running the new Dr. Who on Sci Fi starting tonight. I've never seen ANY of the other shows ::ducks::, so should I check this one out, if for no other reason than Mr. John Barrowman?
