    It was all right. Didn’t live up to what I was expecting, but maybe my expectations were too high. Storyline and characters didn’t pop for me, which they should for a first episode. I guess it more accurately portrays the modern stereotypes for gay men instead of the older stereotypes that Queer as Folk and the like took after. Hopefully it takes off and actually goes somewhere and picks up some characters I can care about.

    Despite the growing media presence GSM people have, I still find myself just as starved for representations in books and TV as I was back in the day. It’s like nothing has changed.

    I really liked it. I need some tv-series focused mainly on gay people like Queer as Folk (plus one of the characters is a gamer ;] )I hope this will only get better with every episode.
