Langford on Soaps: Is "Dool" About to be Cancelled?

Langford's Picks And Pans

River City

I really enjoyed this past week’s River City. First of all, I have to admit that Robbie and Will are growing on me as a couple. No, you won’t see me going all fangirl on them, but I like them much more than I used to. I also think that the pairing has really suited Robbie as a character and has helped to ground and mature what used to be a really flighty and sometimes annoying character. He still can be flighty and annoying, but his relationship with Will has fleshed the character out and softened his more bothersome traits.

I continue to love that River City has this gay couple in lead stories that usually isn’t about them being gay. Yes, Will’s father disapproves of his son's relationship with Robbie, but their lives and stories are much bigger than

"Hollyoaks" Video Update: My Baby Daddy Is A 'Mo!

When we last saw Brendan and Ste they were headed for Brendan’s place for an evening getting to know each other between the sheets. And while things start off in a good place for them, it naturally doesn’t stay that way….

You know, I always found it funny that Hollyoaks has this unwritten rule about gay love scenes. They have never been shy about showing men in bed together, but they always have one guy with his shirt on and the other with his shirt off. To me it makes no sense. After all, we see these men in the sack, being intimate and it’s clear they just had sex. Having one of them wearing a shirt just seems odd. Ah well, it’s a small quibble. At least gay characters on European soaps get to have sex. And they don’t even have to wait two years.
