    OK so I've noticed this a lot where in random tv shows/ movies I can spot " the gay" character early on even when they don't fit the stereotype. However; in real life im clueless unless the person " fits the stereotype". Just an odd observation. Example while this was a part of the latest episode of " Nashville" I thought that one character was prob gay from the first episode he was on.... and as it turns out I was right( should have been placing bets). ha icon_lol.gif

    Real Life is seldom as simple and easy as on the tube or in movies.

    finding the "secret gay" character on tv is like being chosen as a "secret" shopper

    It reminds me of how American television and movies often reference location, sometimes obviously, but sometimes very cleverly and subtly.
