GAYS: The Series is about four twenty something gay best friends navigating the tumultuous terrain of NYC. Huxley, a quick witted waiter and aspiring photographer. Ben, an attractive introvert who works for a gay non-profit. Jackson, a promiscuous overgrown rich kid. And Cameron, a dramatic drag queen with a love for old Hollywood. In this city you always have to look out for yourself; but the little lies, mini compromises and secrets they keep could derail their dreams and destroy their happiness. Written by
Given the storyline synopsis and the 8.1 rating (not likely to remain that high) I had high hopes for this series. I have to believe the first people to rate Gays were cast members and their friends.
I did watch the first three episodes (before giving up) and held out hope that things would start to gel and the acting would improve, but there were no signs of that happening.
The whole thing seemed to consist of loosely related scenes glued together. The acting was tentative and, aside from the actor who played Huxley, it all seemed extremely amateurish and even he seemed unsure of himself at times. I assume the goal was to be camp and funny in the mode of the Eating Out movies or current NYC scene like Hunting Season, but it was mostly drag queens and drama queens being bitchy to one another and not even doing that very well.
Sorry, but there was no humor and no drama, just a succession of badly acted clichéd situations, unfortunately depressing stereotypes and no feeling of connection to or between any of the characters ... other than acute sympathetic embarrassment for them all. Hopefully none of the cast quit their day jobs.
