About the Author

I watch a lot of television, probably too much. But can you really watch too much TV? I've yet to find out. Anyway, I especially love TV when they give us positive portrayals of gays, something that has gotten better but we're still fighting for. I've written about gays in television for many years first at the much missed After Elton, then New Now Next and now at TV Source. It's kind of a passion of mine and I look forward to sharing it with you.

  1. And of course, Iolo asks Tyler to marry him because well why not. Of course this signaled the death of the relationship and probably Tyler (from the looks of that nosebleed). Iolo is simply not meant to have more than 4.3 minutes of happiness. I love how insanely joyless the village is right now. Sheryl brings back a baby from Africa – Hywel is miserable. DJ is none-to-pleased Dai is his father so he is making Cadno and everyone else miserable. Sioned has Ed’s balls in a jar. Eiffion’s woes with Courtney and psychotic mother are just starting. Chester is a serial killer in waiting. Mark is still so paranoid. And the She-Beast Dol is curdling all the milk in a 40 mile radius. Good times.

    River City again keeps digging a hole now with the insinuation that Patrick was only gay because he was molested while in care. Yeah. And the Annie/Alex affair is what I imagine haggis smells and tastes like.Ugh. Plus no one knew that Kelly-Marie was pregnant again? Girl was showing four episodes ago.

  2. Are OWN viewers exposed to closeted gay storylines, particularly in the religious community? Greenleaf is the first OWN show I’ve ever watched (and I’ve been tempted to stop watching several times).

  3. On Hollyoaks – If James’ ex-boyfriend, Carter, has “a new lover,” then Carter must be bisexual, because the person James sees Carter with and enlists John Paul’s help over is a woman named “Lara.”

  4. I loved Ben’s impression of Phil. I’m also enjoying how he and Paul are just a couple on the landscape for the time being. It’s fun to watch.
