I watched the US version when it first aired, and generally enjoyed it. I kinda liked the ruthless Bryan, because he was smart, driven and direct about what he wanted. And when push came to shove, though he seemed the most ethically challenged of the group, it was often him who selflessly came to the rescue of the others and solved their problems by operating mostly anonymously in the background, using his aggressive attitude, money & connections.
A weakness of this kind of ensemble show is that only a few recurring characters have to shoulder the experience of many different aspects of GLBT life, the good and the bad. And so most of them had lives of almost constant, really impossible drama and crisis. You'd wonder why some of them would want to bother to get out of bed in the morning, to face another disaster in their life. They got beat up, blown up, OD'ed, infected, fired, abandoned, etc, more than most people would see in 10 lifetimes.
But some stories were very poignant and resonated with my own gay experiences. One was Michael's affair with the chiropractor, not sure if you've seen it yet, so won't give it away. Except watch the conflict that develops over their combined household, a problem I've faced myself when 2 adult gay men move in together.
