Like the original Noah's Arc, I would have skipped this one too
17 May 2006 | by machination04See all my reviews

My sister forced me to watch the complete season with her a few weeks ago, claiming it was a "must see." After watching the tape, I think it's a "must avoid." As a gay black male I thought surely I would relate to it somehow, but I saw myself nowhere in this show. Sadly, I'd rather watch reruns of Queer as Folk.

My problem with the show is that none of the characters are believable or respectable: There's Noah, possibly the biggest queen ever; supposedly soooo in love with his closeted fake thug, but hooks up with the first stranger who shows him attention. Then there's Alex, as silly, insecure and melodramatic as they come; treats his man (who in real life probably wouldn't accept large sums of money to even be seen with someone like him, let alone date) like a personal slave/houseboy, goes after anyone who gets within 3 feet of him, and then wonders why he wants time away from him. Which brings us to Ricky, the nasty man-whore; goes on a date, only to sneak off to the restroom to hookup with the waiter. I needn't say more-this slut is an embarrassment to gay men. And finally, Chance, so uptight he should be shooting diamonds from his rear; supposedly so together, so intelligent, so mature, yet drives his car into the house of someone his man hooked up with. Between that, and merely the way he speaks, I wanted to mute all his scenes out of disgust.

Being the type I am, I'll give anything a chance before condemning it. I wanted to like this show but unfortunately I was disappointed deeply. I'm ready for someone to break away from stereotypes (i.e., promiscuity, femininity, cheating, etc) and give us a show featuring characters that are masculine, interesting, diverse and genuinely funny. Noah's Arc is clearly not that show.
