Storyline

Two gay friends, Vince and Stuart, live on a cocktail of sex, drugs and clubbing. They are both 29, and Stuart is the type of guy who cops off every time he goes out. One night, he spots 15-year-old Nathan, and brings him back to his apartment where they make love. Now, Nathan is still after Stuart, but Stuart just thinks of Nathan as one in a long line of one night stands. Written by Anonymous

There's a whole lotta shaggin' goin' on
19 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

I am one of the few people in the US fortunate enough to

see this British TV series. It's certainly better than the majority of American sitcoms and mini-series. The story lines give a mature, humorous, satiric look at the life of gays in Manchester, England. There are serious elements of parents rejecting their gay children, homophobia, and the dangers of picking up people, but overall the stories are

kept brisk, funny, and delightful.

The closest that American TV comes is DYNASTY, MELROSE

PLACE, ACTION, and MARRIED...WITH CHILDREN, but this show

is more gutsy and even has Shakespearian irony. It presents interesting characters, bold plotting, and transcends its own open sexual elements. Following the

adventures of the three main characters (sexual-magnet

Stuart, unrequited romantic Vince, and teenaged conqueror

Nathan), the story includes a whole wide world of other

people and in wonderfully playful.

It would be nice to think that one of the US cable lines

will be bold enough to show it.
