The roles in this seemed very stereotypical to me, but maybe that was the point? There seemed to be lot of self-loathing going on with the characters, too.
I really liked Cliff Gorman's character, Emory, a lot. And Harold, Leonard Frey's character.
Sadly, we've lost over half the cast to AIDS(Frey, Kenneth Nelson, Frederick Combs, Keith Prentice, Robert La Tourneaux, and possibly Reuben Green, although he always said he was not gay and his cause of death was released as a heart attack).
I am looking forward to Ryan Murphy's Netflix version, with Jim Parsons(Michael), Zachary Quinto(Harold) and Matt Bomer(Donald).
