Storyline

Two gay friends, Vince and Stuart, live on a cocktail of sex, drugs and clubbing. They are both 29, and Stuart is the type of guy who cops off every time he goes out. One night, he spots 15-year-old Nathan, and brings him back to his apartment where they make love. Now, Nathan is still after Stuart, but Stuart just thinks of Nathan as one in a long line of one night stands. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Episodes 5 and 6 were originally to have been written by another writer. However when early drafts proved unsatisfactory, the writer was fired and 'Russell T Davies' elected to write the entire series himself. As a result of this, episodes 5 and 6 were written after episode 7 (but before episode 8) and were somewhat lacking in plot. Davies has never revealed which writer let them down. See more »

Quotes

Alexander: Right, shut your noise, bit of hush! Vince, sit down, it's time for the presents. And if anyone's got him a Jeff Stryker cock and balls you're getting booted out, that's so unoriginal.

They can show this on cable? Wow...
6 June 2000 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Just saw the first episode on Showcase last night... I guess I won't be getting to bed before midnight for the next few Mondays. This is a show worth staying up for... easily one of the best TV shows I've seen (not -the- best, but up there). I've heard it described as "gay drama", but that makes it sounds as if it's an agenda show (anyone ever watched "Christian movies"?)... it's gay... way gay... shockingly explicitly sexually gay... but above all it's good TV.

And since it's out uncut in Canada, there may be hope for our more sensitive neighbour to the south :)
