Its amazing what a little "gay flavoring" will do for a TV series' exposure. (At least around here!) Apparently the comedy Head Case has been airing on Starz for 3 whole seasons and I've never even heard of the darn thing.
That's a little surprising, because based upon this weekend's episode it seems exactly the sort of thing I'd watch.
HeadCase is an improvisational comedy which follows Hollywood therapist Dr. Jane Goode (Alexandra Wentworth). You sit it on her counseling sessions with various celebrities willing to poke fun at their public image.
Friday's episode featured amusing appearances by Desperate Housewives' show runner Marc Cherry, and actors Kevin Rahm & James Denton. The setup: Cherry wants the character Mike Delfino to go gay, only he is getting a lot of resistance from Denton, the actor who plays him. Rahm is there to help convince Denton that going gay is a logical step for his character. »
Happy Valentine's Day Eve! It's sort of like Christmas Eve, only instead of hanging stockings on the chimney with care, you're hanging up on local florists who try to gouge you on the cost of a dozen red roses. Well I am anyway, because I'm one cheap bastard. Curse you florists of Ftd!
Grousing about the price of flowers aside, this is one of my favorite times of the year! It brings back fond memories of elementary school when you would distribute candy and paper valentines to all your classmates, little boys and girls alike. See, you had to give a Valentine's Day card to everyone — even kids you hated. But you got around this forced equanimity by writing special messages on certain cards. Messages like, "You have cooties" or "I'm only giving you this because Teacher made me!"
Well, in honor of that fine tradition I thought I'd use this Best. »
Degrassi: The Next Generation has a long history of prominent gay characters and this season is no exception. Earlier this year we met Riley Stavros, a teenager struggling with his sexuality, unable to accept that he is gay. With an episode featuring Riley set to air this week on The N, we decided to chat via e-mail with Argiris Karras, who plays the troubled young man, to get his thoughts on his role.
AfterElton.com: Tell us something about yourself. How old are you? Where are you from? What do you do for fun? What kind of music do you listen to?
Argiris Karras: I'm 19 years old and I was born in Toronto, Ontario, one of the greatest cities around!
For fun I often chill with my friends and do a whole bunch of random things such as play soccer and video games, watch movies and listen to music. »
In The Spotlight — Emmerdale
This week we bid a fond farewell to Emmerdale’s Paul Lambert (out actor Matthew Bose) and Jonny Foster (Richard Grieve), by taking a look back at their relationship as they exit the series for a new life in Australia – oh, yeah, and to give their troubled marriage a second (or is it third?) chance. It’s been a long hard road for this couple that found their love tested time and again.
During Paul’s years living in Emmerdale, he endured a series of unsuccessful relationships and tumultuous events including the night he rescued his neighbor Grayson Sinclair (Christopher Villiers) during an assault (and somehow managing to learn of Grayson’s bisexuality in the process0. Grayson’s wife, Perdy (who is aware of her husband’s bisexuality) instantly concluded Paul and Grayson were secretly lovers, but once Paul convinced »
In this edition of Gays Of Our Lives, we introduce “In The Spotlight,” a new recurring feature where we examine in depth a particular series, character or storyline of gay interest.
First up, Casualty’s Dr. Toby De Silva, played by Matthew Needham, who bid goodbye this past week to the long running BBC medical series after a story arc during which the character struggled not only with his sexuality, but with his decision to become a doctor as well.
When Toby first joined the show in September 2007, his conflict over whether or not to be a doctor was quickly apparent as we learned that his overbearing parents had forced him into medicine. And while his relationships with women were rare, fleeting and usually disastrous, there hadn’t been much of an inkling regarding Toby being gay – at least not until he was found in bed with Ben Harding (Mark Letheren »
