The scene in The Old Guard when one of the abductors asks Joe "what is he, your boyfriend" scornfully and the reply he gets explaining why they are way beyond 'boyfriend' is a great scene. I really enjoyed the film, sure some bits are a bit clunky in a TV movie way but there was enough good to carry you past.

Maybe don't watch the clip if you've not seen it yet..

Before the series had to go on hiatus because of COVID, Telemundo's "100 Días para Enamorarnos" introduced two more gay characters in the Pablo and Fer storyline. With Fer taking a break from the relationship, in order to help his soon-to-be ex-wife due to her cancer diagnosis, Pablo became busy trying to build a restaurant business with his ex-boyfriend and a female friend. In the process, he also became involved with a gay attorney, Carlo (the cute guy with the glasses). But Carlo isn't what he appears to be. Pablo and Carlo have now had sex, and in the episode leading up to the break, they've discovered that Carlo is a con artist who's stolen a real lawyer's identity and they've been swindled. The four gay characters are in the restaurant scene.

Kissing Game (Boca a Boca) a Brazilian teen horror series from Netflix. The main character is gay and the show revolves around a disease being spread by kissing and a group of teens that went to a rave and who are now afraid of dying. It takes place in a beautiful southern Brazilian small town, very different from anything you'd expect from Brazil. It isn't until the second episode you actually see the gay life of the main character, but he hooks up with some guys at the party and is now hooking up with an older cowboy from his friend's ranch he met on Grindr.

Watch with subtitles the English dubbing is atrocious.

Has anyone watched the Mexican comedy series El Juego De Las Llaves? Apparently there's a gay storyline with one of the characters being closeted. It's on Amazon but requires a subscription to another service to watch it. For some reason it doesn't list English subtitles too.

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 2808/23/2020

R28 I think I'd describe this series (The Key Game) as more of a dramedy than a comedy. And while the closeted gay guy is one of the principal actors and 1/2 of one of couples who experiment with swapping partners, I'd say his story is pretty basic. (His potential love interest is not one of the other husbands in the main group.) Unless you want watch a lot of material about straight couples and swinging, then I'd probably suggest you just wait til someone clips the gay story within.

On the plus side, the straight actor, Horacio Pancheri, who plays the closet case, Valentin, is very good-looking. Unfortunately, while there's a lot of skin and simulated sex shown among the straights, not so much for him.

In short, I didn't hate it, and if there's a second season, then I could see Valentin's story opening up more in then due to the way things were left in the last episode.

btw - If the Amazon option is directing you to "Pantaya," which has the U.S. rights to this series, then there are English captions available. You should be able to watch the first episode at Pantaya's website for free. This could give you an idea if you want to fork out the money to watch the whole thing.

R29 I only called it a comedy since that's what wikipedia called it for some reason. Thanks for all the info though.

Only reason I asked about subtitles, is because this is what I see. It's probably just a mistake though.

Kind of relevant to this thread. I'm surprised there is so little gay content on (UK) Netlfix. There's much more on Amazon Prime, admittedly mostly Youtube web series, old or on some occasions what seem like a VHS upload from "Water Bearer". Searching for LGBT on Netflix comes up with some odd choices, a lot of lesbian and far eastern stuff and things where one of the characters happens to be gay. I guess I should be grateful for what there is to some degree, way more than just being able to watch QAF in 1999 with the curtains drawn.

I've typed that rambling post out and now I don't know what I want, maybe just equality for the gay characters in things as much as the hetero ones. I'll go write my protest banner...

With COVID American channels have bought shows from other countries to air. I'm watching a new show called Coroner and the lead female (the Coroner) has a gay son. He's shown with his boyfriend. It's a Canadian series.

The son & his boyfriend are 18-19.

Are they main characters with decent screentime/storyline or are they recurring who barely matter to the series? R33

On Netflix from China: "The Untamed" . Deeply repressed Lan Wanji is in love with his oblivious friend Wei Wuxian, over the course of years. After 50 episodes of magic soap opera complications they get together and have an adopted son. Nothing is explicit though, because Chinese censorship. Beautiful scenery, music and hilarious low budget special effects.

Thank you for the recommendation r45. So far it looks like it's the only romance plot, apart from the female lead crushing on the (ex) boyfriend of the mean Heather, that's part of the show. Plus the show features big musical numbers and openly gay Cheyenne Jackson as mustache twirling villain.

R58 Robert was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Lee Posner (the man who raped Robert's sister, Victoria). Robert won't be eligible for parole until after he's served at least 14 years of his sentence. He was later transferred to a prison on the Isle of Wright, refusing visitors and sending Aaron divorce papers.
