Billy Byrne is going to be the Next Big Thing - the next pop idol, the next art scandal, the next screen dream. Doors and worlds of possibility open up. Then it all goes wrong. The world doesn't care about his style, his voice, his thing.

Oh, like you've never pretended to be a lesbian to get a guy.

This is actually a show that with just a bit more time, could have really found its feet and been a cultural phenom or at least a hit. I saw all filmed episodes (not just what aired). With each episode the show got tighter, stronger, funnier- and you loved the characters more. It just wasn't given enough of a chance. It had a really strong cast (they've all gone on to do great work in other projects) and they all gave great performances. The scripts were redone from the British version, with major changes. Some of the scripts could have used more work tweaking some of the rough spots and making it more cohesive. The wardrobe, music, hair and make up, were outrageous (in a good way) - but in later episodes they were able to find a balance that worked better than the first few. See it if you get the chance, its worth it. It really captured the youth culture of that moment and could have been a huge hit if only given the right support and a bit more attention and time.
