Eye Candy
29 March 2015 | by BlindMan-11See all my reviews

1. The writing was sub-par. It was only for the nudity that I am guessing any of the gay community would bother to watch this show.

2. The acting was painfully high school drama production. It was the one thing that makes it painful. Each actor most of the time would wait for the other person to finish his line and there was a slight pause and then the reaction.

3. Camera: Was the dude who was operating the camera on crack? It was jerky and not in an artist way. It got sometimes so bad that you needed a Dramamine pill not to get screen (car) sick.

4. Most of the story lines started and then did not really go anywhere. Of if they do go anywhere, it took way too long to get there. With the Melanie Griffith - Sandra Bernhard characters, what was with this whole part? Why where they needed or what did they add to the show? My only guess is, the producers where 'hoping' for a second and many seasons, and these people would become part of the back story to the production.

On the positive note: There was enough buffed eye candy for any gay man to enjoy and the sex scenes were good without being too gratuitous.

All of the characters had major flaws in their makeup and there is no reason to discuss this area because this is just a fictional show...without saying that I am glad I would not be a part of this group.

Enjoy but with knowing that just because it is gay orientated does not mean that it is great entertainment.
