Trivia

Even though Sidney was openly gay in the television movie that the show was based on, the producers toned down that aspect of his personality when the show premiered due to the fact that they were afraid that they would not get any sponsors for a show featuring an openly gay character. See more »

the "First" of it's kind...
18 May 2004 | by (Dallas, Tx) – See all my reviews

OK, let's clear the air. No, this was NOT the first openly-gay character on television. But this WAS the first openly-gay LEAD character on television.

Billy Crystal was a supporting actor on 'Soap' and so was not a Lead. And while the writing was not all that great and the concept was paper-thin, this show did break new and important ground on television. Shows like 'Will & Grace' and 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' owe a lot to this program. Was the show any good? Yeah, it was decent. Was it important? Yes, unbelievably so. As Tony Randall passes away from our sight on this day, we should remember that we all owe him a debt of thanks.

Thanks, Tony; We will miss you.
