Integrity11 saidThe Best...
I remember overhearing my hetero coworkers saying that Michael C. Hall's portrayal of a gay character in Six Feet Under was absolutely beautiful and his best yet. Now i can sort of see what they were talking about... What a phenomenal actor. And yes, David Fisher is definitely one of the best gay characters to ever appear on a TV show. Thank you for the awesome clip!
If I had to pick my personal favourite, I would choose Emmett from Queer As Folk (US version).
Excluding Brian, he was probably the most complex and fascinating character in the show. While the writers made it awfully convenient for the audience to just label him as a stereotypical gay and ignore him for the rest of the show, they also gave the character so much depth and personality that anyone who has watched the show carefully enough would see Emmett as unpredictable and full of surprises.
