I've always dreamed of watching Sheen and Waterston kiss and have hot, wrinkly love scenes.

He should give up acting and get back to making Calvin and Hobbes.

Fine, fine, I've accepted the homogays. But I WILL NOT accept old and/or unattractive homogays. At least make them hot. Geez. If you're going to destroy the fabric of society with your gaylations, at least have the decency to look totally smokin' while you're doing it.

I think they'll be just adorable together! And the fact that they're TV icons -- nay, pop culture icons -- makes it all the better.

You go, Mr. McCoy and President Bartlet!
 
2014-07-09 03:22:07 AM  
Well, this is certainly not a show people will be watching for the hotness factor.

Looks interesting, at least on paper. Hollywood doesn't normally do well as far as creating shows with older queer representation, so that's something.

I guess most of you Farkers are too young to remember, but Martin Sheen made a name for himself in playing one of the first openly gay characters on TV or the Movies, when cast as Hal Holbrook's lover in the movie "That Certain Summer."  I was just a kid of about 9/10 but I remember that there was one hell of a brouhaha over that movie being broadcast on TV at the time.   This was long before there was much of anyone in the "not that there's anything wrong with it" camp and were the social conservatives ever in freak-out mode over it.

That was back at a time when Network TV actually did a damned good job of backing "made for tv movies" that were often as good or better than those on the big-screen.

Sounds fun!

They seem better suited personality wise to the wives they were cast with than together tho. But I can see it.

Hurr durr traitor!

Even though if you watch Fog Of War, McNamara pretty much admits (though not directly) she was right,. It was an unjust war, fought for the wrong reasons. If we played our cards right in the '50s we could have had Ho Chi Minh in our camp. Two reasons we didn't: 1) hurr durr commies, and 2) alliance with the French (which is ironic given how left leaning they were at the time - buy hey at least they were proper white folk, amirite?). Also, war is great for the military industrial complex!

Nothing against the lower echelon grunts who died or suffered just doing what they were told.

Dear Dumbshiats,

Some people don't like certain actors/actresses for other than political reasons. It's unfortunate that some people have to bring politics into everything. Enjoy your hate filled life. I refuse to watch almost any movie with Goldie Hawn or that guy from Mannequin and i have no idea who they vote for, nor do i care. Having seen some of Jane Fonda's work, i can't imagine ever wanting to see any more of it.

I know it's not Hollywood, but the British show currently airing on PBS "Wicked" has old queer representation.

I was having a Quinn Martin Production day on Saturday, watching MeTV at my parents' house. A very young Martin Sheen was one of the guest stars on Cannon, and I was surprised at how handsome he was. He was like a cross between Charlie Sheen and Matthew Perry before he chubbed out.

Netflix's first original comedy series Grace And Frankie

Huh? Im really confused by what and what isnt considered a netflix original. Sometimes it seems like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black are their only shows, but then theres Derek and Lilyhammer and Hemlock Grove, and then all the shows theyve rescued for more seasons...

Watched when it first aired last year. It's not that good of a show, it's only entertaining because Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi are so clearly having so much fun slumming on a sitcom.

I now have you farkied as "dumbshiat".

Actually not really. But, anyone feeling so strongly about Jane Fonda's body of work that they must boycott any future product simply has to have ulterior motivation. Her work is too bland to inspire any strong reaction in anyone...unless her political activism is taken into account. Methinks thou dost protest too much.

Old people get freaky, the Tv show.

It isn't really my bag but I guess we now cast old people in more liberated roles, rather than Bruce the still mobile senior we have Bruce and Billy host the most popular #bearcave webcast on Thursdays.

/what, Friday has a whole schedule for the gilf lover.

I just discovered it this weekend.  DVR'd it but haven't watched yet.  Glad to hear they're having fun as that's pretty much all it'd take for it to be entertaining.

In other news, the Endeavor series is redic good.  I don't even used terms like 'redic,' but it is.  I've actually started watching the old Morse stuff just to get a quick fix between episodes.

Yeah, I just picked up the DVDs when they came out this week. I've also got Mr. Sloane and Doc Martin to go through.

Of course, only Vicious is about old gay guys.
