5.0 out of 5 stars Sex and the City for the Lesbigay Community (&their friends), 11 Aug. 2006
Having heard about this series on and off, I thought I'd take a look and see what all the fuss was about. And yes it is as good as they say. It may miss the sharp brilliance of the West Wing's dialogue, the clever and witty symbolism hidden in Sex and The City, but it is definitely the first series that I could relate to as a gay man - I'm guessing I'm not the only one.

It was really refreshing to see emotions dealt with in an uninhibited way - the sex scenes are honest and not only limited to men on men (a relief for lesbian fans so often featured poorly or not at all in contemporary gay literature/film/etc). It doesn't hide behind its waspishness as does Will and Grace. This series actually HAS men kissing men (convincingly) and has enough of a romantic componant to the story to give you something to dream about, enough realism, however to still allow one to identify with it, and enough sexy men and women to make one seriously consider going back to the gym!

Buy this, its worth it - and its cheaper than therapy!

Where the bloody hell is season 2, 3 etc

I'm hooked!

Nic
