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

You've got ten seconds to wash your face... Or I'm starting without you. I'm gonna do more than just good old-fashioned "make your dreams come true." Times up! I'm gonna make your reality compete with your dreams.

How channel4 has managed to vomit such trash onto our television screens is beyond me.It combines everything that is wrong with youth television - terrible acting, cardboard-cutout characters, 'cool' wobbly camera angles and zoom shots, contrived and confusing script - and manages to mix it all together into something which might be a comedy or might be a drama, and fails at both. Its gaudy, tacky, extremely annoying to watch, and has singlehandedly set gay rights back 20 years. Watch this one as it slowly slips later into the schedules and erases itself from it's creators resume.
