Thanks for letting us know Cormo.

Did you see the picture for the very British Sex Scandal?? I never fancied Robert from Emmerdale before now!

I've always said he's got a fabliss bod.

Typical case of 'nice legs, shame about the boat race'

It's high time Channel 4 did a season like this - back in the 80s and 90s, when the C4 was the daring "enfant terrible" of British television, such shows were par for the course. Now, they are a rare beast amongst all the cheapening and dumbing down thanks to BB and its ilk.

I note that gay sex has been legal in England and Wales since 1967. It took another 26 years - a generation - for this right to be extended to gay men in Ireland. Says a lot to me about how socially backward Ireland was not so long ago.

Gay sex was legalised in Ireland in 1993. Very late by developed world standards but I suppose better late than never.

It's a bit disappointing it's only 5 programmes, stretching it a bit too call it a 'season'.

Having said that most of what has been interesting with gay people on TV in the last decade has been gay people finally appearing as everyday in mainstream TV.

Queer as Folk, characters in soaps, Graham Norton, etc, etc

In fact the whole season idea almost seems a bit '80's & dated, which I suppose is a good thing in that it shows how far things have come ....

does anyone know if this "season" will be made available either on Torrent or 4od service?

just because it won't make for very pleasant viewing with family in toe, "Excuse me mother do you mind if i switch over from tonights main evening news with anne doyle to watch a very entertaining show about one of your favorite topics, homosexuality"

Why? Would she not say, of course, son, that sounds so much more interesting!

Seriously, I hope that there are other ways to watch it, especially for people who live with their families.
