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. Ste’s brain damage doesn’t make his case for custody any stronger. If he can take his kids out of school or punch somebody while blacking out, why would people trust him to take care of his kids. It reminds me of Ashley on Emmerdale.

  2. Derrick’s returning to Days of our Lives? Yes, please! That’s one way to get me to watch more regularly.

    I’m liking the Emmerdale spoilers for Robert & Aaron – except for the marriage bit. I don’t see either of them as the marrying kind.

    It was only 6 months ago that Tyler was hooking up with guys off Volcano right under Iolo’s nose, so I agree with you this is a confusing rush on People of the Valley. I thought it was sweet how Iolo consoled Tyler on his lack of family by saying “You’re about to be related to me” but wasn’t prepared for their chat about having kids that immediately followed.

    EastEnders has been really good the last few weeks overall. It was a nice bit of character development that the End Hate Crimes t-shirt idea was Linda’s.

  3. Øyevitne is Norwegian :) the original can be found on YouTube with English subtitles. It says actually that the subtitles are in Swedish but it is English, not perfect English but you can follow the story!
