    Produced by Andrew Haigh, the guy who gave us Weekend and I'm very enthused by it!



    Personally, I'm just excited to see Russell Tovey. icon_redface.gif

    Thoughts?

    I thought Girls was for gay guys; I love that show. This is going to be interesting though and I, too, hope there is a colorful cast or else it will be another QAF.

    I'd seen an earlier preview and wasn't really enthused. This looks good.

    wasn't there already a straight version of this called "Sex and the City?" Another show starring generically attractive individuals dating other generically attractive individuals yet still complaining about being alone and not finding "the one." Whatev.

    the theme in these shows have been redone over and over again in both the gay and straight world. e.g. queer as folk, noah's arc, the l-word, dante's cove, friends, will & grace, desperate housewives, etc. i guess it's just a theme that never gets old among viewers and must rake in a lot of money for producers.

    Who knows, it maybe the next 'Queer as Folks". Personally, I never liked QAF, but I do want gay shows to achieve commercial success.

    I will definately watch for this, although one wonders how accurate it portrays life in SF (I left ten years ago but may go back). I guess it's more Hipster now than older gay. I dunno.

    I think we can get starvved for gay series, I absolutely LOVED the L Word and watched QAF (although it was a bit overstretched.. never understood how that Brian could get the amount of hotties we was shown to conquer), really enjoyed Noahs arc too, although wondered how over stretched it was.. (really, is it that easy to find hot guy on guy cruising in the Crenshaw? ie. the guy found it everywhere).

    I must be the only one who has no idea who Russell Tovey is..?

    i have no idea who russel tovey is either. i loved qaf, but also felt like things were a bit over the top. however, the acting was superb. brian kinney was certainly not the best looking guy, but his loaner bad boy persona was hot. the l-word was good; however the acting was so-so. noah's arc was entertaining with great looking guys, but the acting was so unnatural and forced.

    DTLA was a good one. Nothing good (and gay) lasts anymore.

    Really?? I'll give this show the benefit of a doubt since it's on HBO, but yuck, what a trifling preview.

    Girls IS for gay guys. I guess, so is this. Maybe HBO is trying to corner the gay market?
