    I popped by the shop & bought the movie and it is interesting as the story line is not the typical type. & omg, the actors are gorgeous. Luv the blonds (can't remember their names) and the actors have nice bodies. Even their sensual scenes are hotter than Queer as folk ..... mmm ....

    Is this also a series? Popular in America?

    It's fairly popular. Only for the boys though. I've never heard anyone say that the acting was worth the time. They might as well just shut up and keep taking their clothes off because it's had some of the worst actors of all time on the series.

    I only rented it because season one was filmed here in the Turks & Caicos Islands. So, it was fun seeing the sites of the island on a gay TV show. Season two was filmed in Hawaii I believe because the government figured out the series was gay and wanted nothing to do with it.

    The visuals are awesome, but the acting and actual story are just meh.

    I think it ran for three seasons. I liked the magic storyline thing that they tried to do though it was obvious that the writer didn't know how to approach it intelligently. Well I guess it was intelligent enough for what it was. You could tell something was off at the beginning of each season. If the last season I saw was the end then it ended the story but I wouldn't have minded seeing more.

    There is a spin off called The Lair about the bathhouse. It is about vampires. The ending of it... well I wouldn't want to spoil it for you but it is a complete story.

    It's best to watch it with the sound off
    The guys are all beautiful but the lines they feed them
    and the storylines on that show make groan .....

    ... and not in a good way icon_neutral.gif

    Is there a witch on this show? I might have caught some of this, but I don't remember being impressed.

    Yes. They all have magic powers, and there's kind of a den-mother-ish witch played by the chick who played Cat Grant on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

    I like to describe the show thusly:
    A Here! TV executive gave his 16 year-old goth daughter a stack of Instinct magazines, the budget of The Crow TV series, and the keys to their Hawaiian mansion. He told her to make a show out of them, and 45 minutes later she pitched him Dante's Cove. The executive thought, "that sounds like crap, but maybe if we load it with sexy men, 8 out of 10 gay men will buy it sight-unseen!" Said executive was immediately abducted by the US government. Scientists are still trying to unlock the secret of his prescient abilities.

    Pretty pretty boys. But my sofa is a better actor than any one on the show. And the writers should be lynched.

    The den-mother-ish witch was played by Tracy Scoggins. She was in the final season of Babylon 5 as the ships Captain, Dynasty, and The Colbys.

    Yeah, I had to look at her IMBD profile to check which night time soap she had been on.

    The only other memorable character (and I use that wording loosely) was the actress that played her sister. Thea Gill was also seen on the American version of Queer as Folk.
