Hello!

This community is so quiet. Ah, well.

Just wondering how everyone is feeling about the sudden onslaught of slashy stuff on British TV. Queer Eye UK, Fairy Godfathers, and others that escape me...

Also Todd and Karl (Corrie) split up tonight. Rest in Peace you absurdly short love affair. How nice you were while you lasted.

Queer eye UK is the slashiest thing on TV this year. Yes I deem it slashier than the US version. Karl and Todd should get back together asap. I was screaming 'Don't leave!' at the TV tonight...*sighs*

It is?! *Blinks* I haven't watched actually. I have already pledged my heart to Kyan. In fact I emailed Living last night to ask why they'd stopped showing US episodes.

Yes it was so sad. I think it was mostly because Karl has been so cool about it all and last night he well and truly crumbled. They love each other but it can never be...
Yes it's slashier, and the London accents are great... I think living TV should show both series' and keep us all happy. Plus Julian is gayer than Carson which is a bonus.


I wanted so much to hug Karl last night when he broke down...short lived but much loved. They should be together damnit! :P
What does the term "slashy" mean or refer to? I got the hint that maybe it related to gay TV sitcoms? Someone fill me in! I like the term "slashy!"

I do love the BBC and since I live in America, I only get BBCAmerica. I am in love with Coupling. Anyone watch the first two episodes? Are they any good without Jeff? The Office was another fave of mine. NBC doesn't know when to stop trying to take British sitcoms and leave them British. They made an American version of Coupling and took it off the air after 3 shows. They are doing the same thing with, "The Office", it's like watching a scary movie and I am yelling, "NO! STOP! DONT RECREATE THAT BRITISH SITCOM!" Just leave it alone!
slash is the Internet term to refer to gay relationships. Whether these be real relationships or ones invented for the purpose of fiction. Slashy then just means anything that has content that suggests slash relationships to the audience. (Again, whether these are true relationships, or just (Wishful!) undertones of a relationship.)

I do watch Coupling, though not a huge fan. Haven't seen the new episodes so can't comment on that - it does always seem odd to me that American networks remake Brit programmes. As with The Office, there was hardly room for improvement there. It is sad because then you guys miss out on some great stuff. I do think that not all Americans get British humour (as deadpan as it is, ala The Office) so some things just don't translate that well.
this and ask for Emmerdale's Zoe/Charity prompts (aka help in kick starting my muses)?
