Storyline

Two gay friends, Vince and Stuart, live on a cocktail of sex, drugs and clubbing. They are both 29, and Stuart is the type of guy who cops off every time he goes out. One night, he spots 15-year-old Nathan, and brings him back to his apartment where they make love. Now, Nathan is still after Stuart, but Stuart just thinks of Nathan as one in a long line of one night stands. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

A follow-up, spin-off series ("Misfits") was initially commissioned by Channel 4 due to the show's success. It would have followed the characters of Hazel, Alexander and Bernard from the original series, while introducing new characters. Although Russell T. Davies developed draft scripts for four episodes and storylines for a further 22, the series was cancelled before it went into production. See more »

Quotes

Alexander: Right, shut your noise, bit of hush! Vince, sit down, it's time for the presents. And if anyone's got him a Jeff Stryker cock and balls you're getting booted out, that's so unoriginal.

British more believable than America.
7 July 2003 | by AkiosanSee all my reviews

Down in Brasil, they aired the Portuguese dubbed US version of this show, and I hated it (and yes, I am male and attracted to guys). I just thought it was ugly, stereotypical and just a downright humorless gloom fest.

However, my friends showed me the UK version. I was hesitant at first, but I gave it a chanse. In fact, I love the UK version way much better than the USA version. Good acting, actual fleshed out characters, and some humor thrown in here and there (unlike the other one). Yeah, even thouhg some of the gay men here party and are sexually aroused, but this time they are more portrayed as humans and not stereotypes (and yes, in the UK, those are ACTUAL gay people, from what I heard).

Only if they air the show on Brasil TV and play it in Portuguese even.
