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
With nothing more to go on than the marketing for this disc that positions it as a cross between AbFab and QaF, I bought the double-disc set. Wow! I was immediately gratified by the show's surface appeal--those clothes, that hair! Had no sooner watched it before it occurred to me that a gay friend of mine would probably love it also. He did. Then I put it on for my straight, 20-year-old godson. He enjoyed it a lot. Last night, a bi-friend of mine got the privilege. He also thought it was great. What's not to like? It's fast, even-handed, terrifically stylish and it has a moral compass. The DVD's "extras" are enlightening and extensive. Kudos to all involved! Hard eye candy with a soft, nougat center.
