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. Meanwhile, on “General Hospital”, it turns out Lucas (and Bobbie) weren’t retconned out of the hospital serial killer story after all; Paul has an alibi for the time of those attacks. Why the writers are drawing attention to the mess they made of this, I have no idea. Also, of course Lucas isn’t on-screen for any of this.

  2. So you noticed Chad’s tight pants, too? Dat ass!

    On EastEnders, I was half expecting Pam to suggest that Jay and Ben move into the flat above the funeral home. Ben running to give Jay a hug was really touching as was Pam’s role in getting him to come back. I look forward to seeing what the show has in store for Ben now.

    I like the chats between Warren and Ste. I enjoy the interaction between two characters with so much history in the midst of all the newbies. To be fair, they have talked about Brendan before when Warren was warning Ste to stay away from drugs. It might be sobering for Ste if Warren said something like “What would Brady think of how you’re carrying on now?” Amy has a stable home, is engaged to a reliable guy whom the kids adore – and Ste is a train wreck who has endangered the kids. No one seems to remember that Leah is not Ste’s biological daughter, and I don’t remember him ever legally adopting her. Technically, he has no rights to visit her at all.

  3. I don’t think the problem was Harry being poor, but his reputation. He was already beaten for being gay, maybe even went to prison before for sodomy. It’s too easy to find out and him being there is just potential problem for James. James could been end up accused for “association with a know homosexual”.

    I was hoping for Harry to leave town. His character screams tragic ending. I hope he doesn’t drag James with him. Poor Harry, run now!
