Thanks for checking the show out. Made it another round. *phew*
Just wanted to respond to a few of the questions in earlier posts. When I was approached with the premise of the show I thought it would be a great format to blow gay/straight sterotypes out of the water. Visibility is the # factor in furthering the gay cause and the fact there are romantic undertones and gay men entering the living rooms of America and every Tuesday night is a huge step forward. Shows like Will and Grace, Queer Eye, etc...are great because they illustrate diversity/humor of gay men but the romantic plots explored are few and far between so I think that's why this show is so important.
As for being recognized, yes. It's become kind of weird. From the grocery store to the beach I take my dog to I get stopped about the show. The topper when I was up in LA yesteday and this car load of 16 year old girls pulls up, looks over and starts screaming..."Wes we looove the show!!" I didn't realize that was our demographic. Haha!
