Storyline

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 Anonymous

Outside Tradition
2 December 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Modern culture asks us to accept many infringements into our lives, including our identities. Being in love might be simple, but what to do with it can be complicated by concepts of monogamy and monosexuality. Metrosexuality attempts to explore the vast differences in people's identities and relationship boundaries while not getting caught up in either ham-fisted soap opera antics or soft-core homoeroticism. Comparisons between Metro and Queer As Folk will be unavoidable for most, but they fundamentally differ. QaF is homocentric, while Metro finds room for a gray-scale that better represents the range of people's identities, and better captures the variety and confusion in relationships.

Gay, straight, bisexual, monosexual, polysexual, monogamy, polygamy, feminism, and masculinity are some of the topics explored in an everyday setting. Each character has their own traits, and through their interactions gives us insight into who we are.

The actors/actresses performances sometimes dip into being a tad wooden, though generally are acceptable. The low budget they must have had sometimes distracts. The fast pacing (which I enjoyed) will make some dizzy, with quick cuts between settings and characters setting the feel. The intentionally shaky (and sometimes TOO shaky) camera technique adds a certain anxiety, though occasionally intrudes. The characters are developed through their interactions, so we never get to explore the inner thoughts of any single character outside of group settings. At any rate, they certainly are a sexy bunch.

Overall, I enjoyed Metro (especially after my letdown on over-the-top QaF). The series foretells the coming of a revolution where polarized labels (gay, straight, bi) are a thing of the past, and people celebrate themselves for who they are, wherever they may fall in the spectrum of life, not simply how well they can be pinned down into a stereotype. Unfortunately, it only lasted one season on UK television and never made it to the US. I saw this on DVD, which includes the pilot "Heterosexuality".
