    I think the beginning was slow too. He spent about 15 minutes on the phone and it was quite annoying.

    Yeah I have to agree...on the day of the Pilot I sat down to watch it but just got so bored after 10 minutes...then my friend convinced me to watch it properly and the second time around it was way better! I think they show is really good...also quite different! But I don't like Tony...he is an absolute sh*t! He really is! What a jerk!

    Thoughts on Episode 1 "Tony"

    Tony - Nicholos Holt can certainly act. Tony is the kind of lad you wouldn't want as a friend or a boyfriend but he has a certain level of charisma that makes you see how he gets mates and laid. His treatment of Sid is pretty horrible though. Plus the lad can sing.

    Michelle - Poor girl gets branded with the name Nips fro her loving boyfriend and has Sid after her tail as well. I though she was an OK character but a bit one dimensional.

    Sid - I like him, I really do but it's obvious that he's set up as a fall guy who will suffer tyhe consequences of any of Tony's mad schemes, like the Mad **** thing. Obviously the writers want you to ship him and Cassie and I have to admit they are good together.

    Cassie - I like her a lot but the anorexia thing scares with how she casually arranges food and takes pills and tells people in a casual way. She's my favourite character so in the series run.

    Jal - Love her. Funny and pretty sarcastic. I want to see a bit more of her. She certainly knows how to talk Tony down as well.

    Chris - I like him too. He's pretty funny and his cracking on to his teacher is interesting. I bet they'll do the business halfway through the series though.

    Maxxie - The most confident and not overtly camp gay teen on TV so I'm looking forward to his episode a bit more as well.

    Anwar - Not as vocalised in the opening episode as others aside from the peeing incident but yeah, I like him.

    Um, interesting debut episode so a 7/10. Episode 2 to be tackle in my next post.

    "Charmed was good for four seasons."

    Charmed was good for no seasons.

    I missed it, doh! I've seen it anyway though... Tony is IMO one of the best episodes and one of the most interesting characters. He's very Machiavellian.

    Just noticed that Angie's husband fiancee from the last season finale is actually at the gay bar at the Big Gay Night... Interesting...
