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. The reason David and Rhys have excellent chemistry even through trite storylines is that the actors have no inhibitions playing any facet of homosexuality. Why? I don’t know, maybe because one was dating a rugged muscle bear named Christopher last year and the other has a drag persona named Llana.

  2. You’re right. This week’s events clearly set it up for Cam to make his exit. He’ll be missed. But young actors usually don’t stay around for long on this show, do they? I’m honestly surprised that Jack is still on.

  3. I won’t spoil the most recent developments, but I am not surprised if Cam has left. If true, it is very disappointing because Cam is a nice addition to the show, breath of fresh air as is Drew.

  4. I’m just assuming. I follow him on instagram and he was away in Europe for nearly a month. Could just be temporary but who knows. If it was always finite, seems like an even bigger waste.

  5. I figured either Jack or Cam were leaving. That seems to be where the story was going.

  6. The actor who plays Cam (Ryan J. Carter) seems to have left the show. He must have only had a 6 month contract or something. What a waste:(

  7. Rhys and David are a great couple who actually have chemistry and share hot kisses occasionally. It is a well typical coming out story, but it is better acted than most.

    I am disappointed, but the show does seem to be having Cam turn straight. I am not even sure why they are doing this since they haven’t been together for more than a few weeks and the build up was going on for months. Also, neither Cam or Jack have other potential love interests on the canvas. Maybe they are just backing away from showing the physical intimacy of two males on the screen and want to end the relationship. It is possible that Jack is on his way out.

    On Neighbours, I don’t even get why Aaron is even interested in David who is a bore and useless. They have no chemistry and just being slapped together because they are both gay.

  8. James Sutton and his flawless skin will be missed, but it’s hard to fault his decision to leave. Even though John-Paul is his best-known role, he had better storylines when he played Ryan Lamb in Emmerdale.

    Regarding Aaron in prison, I thought Emmerdale might re-introduce that guy Wayne who gave him grief during his community payback stint after punching Jackson.

    Iolo and Tyler looked more handsome for Sion’s wedding than they did for their own. Normally, I see Iolo as a little brother and want to shield him from his bad decisions and give him advice, but the sight of him in that waistcoat after the non-wedding made me have some naughty thoughts. Where Tyler is concerned, however, I only have naughty thoughts. Whatever story comes their way now, I just hope all that business about Iolo’s attackers is done. Even in retrospect, all that business still makes no sense other than to cause unnecessary discord between the two.
