Kwame is seventeen; sexy and unswervingly straight with his hormones raging like a forest fire. But there's no room in his packed schedule to feed the flames. His best mate's in love with his dad - his gay dad has just divorced his husband and plunged into a mid-life attack of 'adultescence', buying a skate-park and becoming the original bitch on wheels. The family counselor has run off with his girlfriend's nouveau rich millionaire father, and his bitch/angel girlfriend is hanging out with a pair of sexy 'lippy lesbians'. It ain't easy being straight in the 21st century - but hey, someone's got to do it... Written by
Just watched it with my boyfriend and it's amazing. Funny, sweet and fresh. This series is a real eyecandy. It's also one of the first gay tv/movies to focus on non-white gay families and gay parenthood. Queer As Folk (US version) could learn a lot from this clever series: a more diverse picture of gay community, the characters are more human and finally, despite its title the series's creator didn't go out of his way to shock us with sex like some cheap soft-core porn. Don't get me wrong this series is very sexy but unlike QAF it's easy to fall in love with these characters despite their outrageous fashion and crazy lifestyles. I hope more Metrosexuality is coming.
To those who'll rent it or buy it on DVD in US - watch "the pilot called Heterosexuality" first. It's in the extra features. It came out two years before the series and introduces us to the characters.
