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.Read more ›
This season tackles all sorts of issues, including trust in a relationship, infidelity, living with a partner who has AIDS, and homophobia. It seems, at times, that the writers tried to squeeze every gay issue they possibly could into this short season and, with only eight episodes, at times it feels a bit rushed. Still, I have to say this is one of my favorite shows from Logo just because of the hilarious dialogue between the characters and their Sex and the City dynamic. Logo marketed this show as Sex and the City meets Soul Food and I'm going to say it also has elements of Queer as Folk and The L Word. I would highly recommend Noah's Arc for a fun weekend in when you're in the mood for some laughs.
Please LOGO put the series back on the air.

The sets and locations are better. They filmed this season in Vancouver, British Columbia and it shows. Great outside shots and beautiful vistas ground this season. Numerous topics packed into this season give you reasons to reflect on what's happening in the community and makes you want to [discuss] these views with your friends. The special features and commentaries of episodes from creator and stars, give you intimate details of what was going on while they taped scenes, not to be missed. You won't be disappointed with this new season. O, and yeah!...[beefcake] so tender you can cut it with your fingers..LOL!..
There are few moments in life that are more rewarding and rich than being in the company of close, good friends. The kinds of companions who tease, confront, support and love you as only those who know you best can do. Noah's Arc is a show about those moments, and it strings them together like perfect pearls on a Tiffany necklace.
While much of Noah's Arc focuses on the romantic trials and tribulations of its leads, it the friendship of the four main characters that's at the show's core. They fight, they fuss, they poke fun and they celebrate each other with such deep affection that you'll want to jump into the TV and join the party.
All the actors are excellent, but Darryl Stephens, as the titular lead, is a stand out. He brings a sweetness and style to the role that is unlike anything I've ever seen before. Usually, actors on a show like this - especially the leads - either lather on the butchness to the point that they come across as if they were created by Tom of Finland, or they act so exaggeratively effeminate that they descend into camp. Stephen's smartly avoids those extremes - Noah is a smart and sexy guy who's not afraid to wear pink or let his wrist drop. He's a very unique creation and, in a fair world, Stephens would have taken home an Emmy for his moving portrayal.
A last shout out goes to Jensen Atwood, who is hotness personified in the role of Wade. I can't imagine there's a man, woman or anyone in between who could resist his smoldering bedroom stare.
Take the batteries out of your smoke detectors when he and Stephens are on screen together - the two of them have a chemistry that will will ignite any flammables too close to the TV. Enjoy!
