Just watched the first episode of the show. Definitely well written. It is also the first show that I have seen without a immediately positive portrayal of homosexual characters. The two closet homosexual characters are by far the least admirable. Regardless of your stance on homosexuality in pop culture, it is interesting to see a portrayal that does not make at least these two characters noble from the start.
Gutsy writing considering social conservatives do not as a whole approve of homosexuality on TV. Social progressives do not generally care for negative portrayals. It will be interesting to see where that story arc goes.
If you want something far lighter I suggest Downton Arby’s.
