    Hey guys
    Just wondered has anyone been watching these two shows and what do you think?
    I know cucumber is more gay man centric but it's pretty good allthough i preferred queer as folk, tonight's banana looks to be about a lesbian couple tho which looks interesting :)

    I started watching because i really enjoyed Queer as Folk (the UK original, never seen the US version) and got into Russell T Davies' work. It's been a clever concept, so far so good. Also a little link to Skins as the blonde in tonight's episode played JJ's girlfriend.

    So tonight I settled down to watch Cucumber followed by Banana. I'd sen the adverts so knew it was going to be a Lance heavy episode followed by lesbians so I thought I knew what was coming. Great to see Denise Black back as Hazel fro Queer as Folk, a nice touch. The ending? Flipping heck! Thank heavens for the lovely Banana episode that was all warm and fuzzy :)
