    Are you as frustrated as I am by being teased with all of the blatantly intentional homoerotic subtext between these two "chaste" arch-nemeses? Do you also eye-roll through the requisite "beard" backstory safely establishing them as childhood friends and blood brothers and further hetero-izing them as, respectively, a grieving widower and a man who they're hinting at having slept with his brother's wife?

    How cool would it be for a series like this to distinguish itself from the pack ("Falling Skies," "The Walking Dead," etc.) by just matter-of-factly acknowledging that the dark-haired butch anti-hero ("Miles") and megalomaniac dirty blonde femme despot ("Monroe") who hold the fate of the world in their hands are former gay lovers on the skids?

    They should just drop the pretense and go all out as the love story between two city-gravitating power gays it's meant to be. The main elements are all there - a relationship which turned sour between an attractive "bachelor uncle" and his longtime "friend," who rocks tightly tailored, fashion-forward paramilitary wear over his gym toned bod whilst issuing edicts from headquarters professionally decorated in period-appropriate antiques, each considering the other "family."

    They've already set up the complication of a scheming blonde third wheel, one of Monroe's right hand men (and former model) who constantly advocates killing Miles so he can have Monroe all to himself! Giving that annoying niece ("Charlie?" Really?) a personality transplant as their hag alone would improve the show. Having cast Abercrombie & Fitch models for all the under 25 characters and gaydar-pinging actors as sadistic militia captains and sergeants it's already one of the gayest shows on TV.

    I've never heard of this show but it sounds pretty hot. My FAVORITE gay story line is from a German soap opera called Verbotene Liebe. Both of the men are incredibly hot and the storyline is amazing! Skip to about 25 seconds, the suspense!

    LOL... I don't see any homoerotic subtext between these characters. That said, I wouldn't complain if it happened.

    Just about everybody on "Revolution" is super-hot; and yeah, the fellow who plays Monroe is a serious dish. But I've never gotten any erotic undercurrent between him and Miles - and I pretty much live for that kinda sh*t. icon_smile.gif

    My current favorite slash-fiction-just-waiting-to-happen is Nathan (Lucas Bryant) and Duke (Eric Balfour) on "Haven". Their vibe just screams "used to mess around in high school but then one of them got a girlfriend"; and the directors are forever photographing them in intense conversations, practically nose-to-nose. My husband and I yell at the TV, "Kiss him, already!"
