Product Description

Navigating life and love in L.A. isn't easy, and no one knows that better than Noah and his friends - Alex, Ricky & Chance. LOGO's ground-breaking, one-of-a-kind series Noah's Arc follows all four as they chart an uncertain course through the City of Angels, where laughter and drama are never in short supply.

Amazon.com

What if Sex and the City met Queer as Folk and The L Word--with an all-male, all-black, all-gay cast? Noah's Arc, the winsome Logo Channel series about the dating and sexual adventures of sweet, naive Noah, a would-be screenwriter, and his pals in pumped-up L.A., is just as sweetly addictive as those shows. And it's all the more ground-breaking because nearly the entire cast is African American--stellar actors all. At the center of the circle is Noah (Darryl Stephens), the soft-spoken Carrie/Charlotte character; surrounding him are Chance, Alex, and Ricky, who are pretty much all Samanthas, which can up the sex patter to a fever pitch. Noah struggles as a screenwriter, and struggles in his dating life, at one point becoming wildly attracted to a successful film writer named Wade ("What kind of name is that?!" screeches one pal; Noah replies, "His momma was in the choir and her favorite song was 'Wade in the Water!'"). Turns out even gay guys can have rusty gaydar; Noah--and we--can't tell if Wade's attracted to him or not. The cast rallies 'round one another for adventures like this, and others, great and small, and that's what begins to make it compulsively watchable, whether you're single, gay, or of color or not. Seeing L.A. through Noah's friends' prisms is just as fun; it's a pretty and sculpted eye-candyland. The boxed set includes nine episodes and a fantastic disc of extras, including deleted scenes, auditions, the pilot and commentary featuring the cast and creator, showing the camaraderie we see on the screen was shared on the set too. Let's hear it for the boys! --A.T. Hurley

It is so soothing and I can relate to the characters in my own life!
Oneda J. Mcgirt
It was like watching a movie because I was going to view an episode here and there as time permitted but I found myself watching the entire season in one sitting.
Round Brown
It makes me laugh so much and the feeling when watching it is just so good and content.

Noahs Arc- the complete first season is great New series from Logo network. This series is a refreshing and new comedy about four African-American Gay men and there relationships with there lovers. Its a great new comedy! I fell instantly in love with the series and the characters.

I definitely will buy as many series from this collection as offered!

This series begins with four good friends. First guy, a HIV prevention expert. Second a promiscuous club boy who just wants to have fun. The third, a stiff professor; and the fourth, Noah, who seems to keep all these friends together.

To find out more, watch Queer as folk final season SNEAK-PEEKS! I did and bought Noahs Arc- The First season as soon as it came out. This new series is WORTH IT!

Noah's Arc is a fun, gay comedy from the Logo Network. It was recommended to me by friends because of my love for Queer as Folk and Sex and the City, and it has the most hilarious elements of both but with an entirely different spin. Logo promotes the show as Sex and the City meets Soul Food, and they're on the mark.

The players:
Noah - a struggling screenwriter and incurable romantic
Alex - a sassy HIV educator
Ricky - hot body, promiscuous, avoids monogamy like the plague
Chance - uptight college professor

Noah, the lead character, is played as an ultra-femme gay man with a voice that's slightly reminiscent of Michael Jackson. He is basically the "Carrie" of the group with the fashion sense and money problems to prove it. His best friends form a tight-knit group with Ricky as the sex fiend "Samantha," Chance as the prim and proper "Charlotte," and though Alex isn't really as cynical as "Miranda" at least he's a professional.

This show is just a bit over the top with the characters playing their roles as black gay men a little stereotypically at times, but it works. In just the first five episodes they deal with issues like a boyfriend who needs a bit of "thug love," cybersex coming between a relationship, whether or not a certain guy might be gay--and how to find out for sure. This DVD set includes 9 episodes and special features like deleted scenes, 2 short films, auditions, extended scenes, and commentary. I highly recommend watching the episodes with the extended scenes enabled if you haven't seen this show yet.

With equal parts drama and comedy, I can't wait to see what Noah and the boys have in store for next season.

There's quite a lot I could say about this series on DVD, about the lives of four black gay friends and their respective romantic and sexual partners but I've decided to say just a little and, in the main, be supportive. Not just towards "Noah's Arc" director, Patrik-Ian Polk but also to the actors and technical crew who obviously worked very hard to put this series together and, more importantly, towards black gay programming and filmmaking in general. I can only speak for myself and as a black gay man but I know I remain hungry for representation on the big and small screen, hungry to the point where it doesn't always matter whether said representation is realistic and positive, or not. This series may only be available on a subscription only cable channel in the US and may not be available to watch on any channel in this country for a long time to come (if ever) but it's a start. No matter what I might feel about certain aspects of this series, as a whole it's definitely groundbreaking stuff. Polk is a pioneer.

I winced quite a lot through the first episode or so but after that, I began to feel that the actors were really getting into a rhythm, gelling as a unit and that the storylines, though a bit short on depth, really began to show heart and humour, while at the same time managing to tackle some very important issues that as black gay men, we can often find very difficult to talk about. I particularly liked the way the HIV issue was dealt with and I have to say I don't think I've ever seen it done in a more accurate or helpful way. Not even on shows like "ER" or "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", which, for obvious reasons, have raised the issue more than a few times in the past.

A television series about a previously ignored group of people certainly deserves attention, and I applaud the creators of Noah's Arc for daring to present the first series about the lives of African-American Gay men. Even better, after watching both seasons on DVD, I found that Noah's Arc mostly lived up to its well-deserved accolades. The characters are quirky, the plot lines fast and furious, the laughs frequent and genuine and the drama quite effective.

I admit I was initially disappointed by the quality of the acting, until I realized that it took a few episodes for the cast to fully hit their stride, and I believe that the series perfectly fit its tag line, "A comedy about drama". After I relaxed into it, I came to care about the characters and their situations quite a bit. By the time I finished the DVD of Season One, I was so addicted to Noah and his friends that I had to purchase Season Two, even though it seemed the creators sometimes tried to squeeze just a little too much plot into a 22-minute format. But considering the constraints they had to work with, in the end I marveled at how skillfully the writers weaved in a myriad of subjects and plotlines, subtly handling many important issues without ever being heavy handed.

The lead character Noah is a case in point. I quickly caught on that his character is deliberately rather feminine, and I realized that the writers wanted viewers to get comfortable with the idea that this slight, delicate and very femme gay man managed in eight short episodes to attract the romantic attention of a half-dozen masculine, sexy co-stars and guest stars.
