    Just a reminder guys - it's not porn. It's HBO.

    OMG! Like, most of those scenes are right here in my backyard. The shot of the Cliff House at Ocean Beach is just blocks from where I live.

    Yep, it's filmed here in SF. Always makes a show more interesting to actually know where they are.

    Hoping it will be available on Hulu as I'm not paying extra for the package my local cable company requires just to get HBO.

    Why are you still using cable? Break away and just get a roku or netflix, never have to watch a commercial again. Free your mind.

    The blond guy with the porn star mustache goes to my gym. I didn't realize he was an actor until I saw this. He is mighty fine in person too.

    You can't really tell much from the trailer. My fear is that they will sensationalize San francisco.

    I think that not really having a Queer Person with a Disability is problematic for a series like this. QwD need representation in our culture.

    I have created a website that addresses this need, Hidden Rainbow. Check it out and let me know what you think:

    Well if they represent more of the community than just Abercrombie twinks I might watch. Carries on the same stereotypes for popularity.

    I'm willing to give it a chance, it looks promising.

    Really? How can you not tell? Nearly all the main actors are white. What you can see in that trailer is the occasional extra like a black man walking in the background or the Asian woman off to the side in the exercise classroom. This is an intentional method to create the illusion that there is diversity.

    Think about why Asians and Blacks on this site whine about why they can't snag a White partner (their idealized fantasy man) and then tell me that cinema has nothing to do with it.


    Well my point being that no cut scene in that trailer is longer than 2 seconds. I went back and timed it. I can't can't tell a damn thing about what's going on. I wouldn't jump to conclusions about anything based on that. I agree with your general commentary about racial representation of gays in media though.

    In my experience with film-making, trailers that have those kind of fast cuts are avoiding showing the plot for a reason. Either because the plot isn't good, or because the final plot has not been decided yet. the latter is usually the case with TV shows, because they are many times testing the the plot and making changes until the last minute.

    Cool. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

    It would also be cool if we could have a thread about it that's just about the actual show, instead of the constant whinning about diversity that went on the other thread.

    Saw the show "looking"and made me wanna look away. This show needs more sex and more drama. Also not too thrilled with the writing, fashion, cinematography, and cheap looking underwear in the sex scenes. If something don't change I don't expect this show to last long.

    This show is like a gay Seinfeld. It's about nothing and it just happens to be gay. I lead a rather quiet kinda life, but damn, this show makes it seem exciting.icon_lol.gif

    So far, the show is boring, it looks like there's a crew of amators, nothing is happening, only 3 dudes chilling around there. I don.t expect for the producers to come so strong like "The new normal" but they could spice up some things.

    I've watched, and so far it is boring. The plot and characters just aren't that interesting.
