What do you think of HBO's "6 feet under"? Is the gay relationship in the program realistic? Why or why not? Is it a postive sign that television is recognizing that gay people have relationships too?

i have heard from a friend that it is good . . .but that IS (I believe it is called) expanded cable, which many don't have. But the few shows that center around a gay character, like Will&Grace or the deceased "some of my best friends" are reluctant to delve into heavy relationships, esp. intimate ones. I have only seen a couple gay kisses on TV . . . .mostly from the RW on MTV. But the key to a realistic rel. on TV is making the actors act non-stereotypically!

There is another gay sitcom on HBO (could be Showtime) called 'Queer As Folk'. I had the misfortune of tuning in not knowing what the show was about and then being grossed out by it.

Only gat sitcom / drama I have seen is Queer As Folk. Whilst it is relevant to some parts of gay society - it would be the same as saying Rosanne is how the majority of straight Americans live.

QAF was funny and quite sad - and completely irrelevant to the way I live my life. But of course we all know some people who are like that!!

Cheers,

B747,

Funny you should say that, as all my friends suggested that I am just like Justin out of the series. (Sans the constant one night stands and drug taking getting involved with 16 year old boys..) I didn't know whether to be offended or pleased by such suggestions.

lol

Why do most people think that a person has to act gay to be gay? My bestfriend who I someday will be involved with hopefully is as far away from acting gay as possible. I like to consider myself that way also.

Well I am not gay but I can say this:

Queer as folk is one entertaining show. I don't miss it for nothing. I do think that it does resemble what gay life is about to some extent.

Most people that I know are gay are not as they are stereotyped on TV and in Hollywood. Except for one; my nephew. He is a sick bastard that needs to be put to sleep. He is one that helps spread the stereotyping of gays as flakey perverts.

Wow JetService. That was heavy! That nephew of yours must be really messed up for you to wish that for him.

Jetservice,

Why would you call your nephew that? Is it because he is so called "camp acting"? Each of us is different, some boys end up being effeminate (whether they are gay or straight) and simply can't help the way they are.

It makes me sick you could despise someone for being different and who doesn't fit your model of what "gay" guys should be like. Get a grip and look further into your nephews life, you might find something that might just appeal to you.

Cheers,

mb

Mx5_boy, I was ready to light you up, but then I realized how you could have misinterpetted my post. I don't want to talk about this scumbag, but I will clarify to ease your mind. This kid has caused the family so much pain for reasons I did not mention and do not care to mention. He is very flakey, but that's not why I despise him. It for the other reasons that he needs to disappear. Understand?

Jetservice,

No worries mate. I just assumed you were having a go at the kid for being gay.

Thanks for the clarification.

In Canada, "Six Feet Under" is carried by TMN - The Movie Network (a commercial-free, pay TV channel). I don't subscribe to this pay channel so I haven't seen the series. I understand that it's supposed to be very good.

Gays on commercial TV were en vogue last year mainly because advertisers have discovered that gay people, for the most part, have high disposable incomes. Bring gay and gay-friendly viewers to a TV program and, hopefully, these viewers will see the advertisers as gay-positive and buy their products.

It's great that commercial US TV is starting to reflect gay relationships but it's really because advertisers have discovered this market and their money.
