Quote of the Day

So I guess there was a gay kiss between the actors Ben Daniels and Christopher Cousins (seen above) on the TV version of The Exorcist the other week, and the show's show-runner Jeremy Slater just gave my favorite response of all-time (via) to those folks who expressed displeasure at seeing two men kiss:

"I don’t think there was that much of a backlash, I saw a couple of homophobes on Twitter and my response is, ’Good, fuck you. I’m glad you didn’t like it, I’m glad it ruined the show for you. You shouldn’t have good things in your life.... If a homophobe can’t watch the show anymore because one of the characters is gay, then I’m glad something good has come out of it."

I watched the first three episodes of The Exorcist and trailed off not because I wasn't enjoying it (as if I could not enjoy something with Alfonso Herrera looking like this) but just because I got distracted - you know how it is, what with so many damn shows on these days. Have any of you kept up with it? Anyway point being I am obviously going to start watching the show again now with this. A most excellent answer, Mr. Slater!

Not only did they kiss ONCE, but they kissed in MORE THAN ONE episode!

Well, I was expecting it to be a total disaster of a show, but it got me hooked. It's not spectacular, but it is enjoyable. But hey, I'll take everything with Ben Daniels. God, that man is a delight.

I love the show and think you could jump right into season 2 easily if you wanted.
