A gay man and a straight woman (think Will & Grace in the UK) meet and do the unthinkable -- they fall in love! Rose is down to earth, straightforward and funny. Then she meets Bob, a teacher, who's certainly not expecting to meet someone like Rose. In their hearts they know they're doing the right thing, but everyone around them thinks they're crazy. Are they hurtling towards the biggest heartache ever? From Russell T. Davies, the creator of Britain's version of Queer As Folk. This 2 Disc Set contains the complete six-part series.
Love conquers all in the radiant Bob & Rose, a six-part British series about an unorthodox romance that quickly gets under a viewer's skin. Bob Gossage (comedian-actor Alan Davies) is a thoroughly gay, Manchester schoolteacher who falls for Rose (Lesley Sharp), a vibrant secretary stuck with a boyfriend she doesn't love and a naïve mother bent on marrying a creepy con artist. Bob and Rose's bumpy, inexplicable affair has its share of doubts, and there are many rules to be re-written (Rose stands by her man whenever he insists that he's gay, not bi-sexual).
Yet these two know, instinctively, they are meant to grow up and out of their respective singles scenes (straights on one end of a club-dominated street, gays on the other end), no matter how painful their course or how often friends attempt to sabotage them. Davies and Sharp fully inhabit the rich characters created by writer Russell T. Davies, creator of the original, British version of Queer as Folk. This is a rewarding, lovely series, highly recommended. --Tom Keogh

My understanding in life has come to this people usually try to stay the same out of fear of social rejection or fear and not understanding themselves but there's people out there that do change that find themselves in situations that add to their experiences in life that one moment we could feel safe and confident in who we are and the next moment something can happen and if we accept it or reject it it will change us and open our minds to a wider understanding of how positive and negative impulses and how we see the men's positive or negative and if we let them change how we see and experience the world
It did address many stereotypes from the hetero and gay side, as well as from family and friends of both. I think it was well-written, well acted (Davies and Sharp were perfect in the roles and very believable)and quite humorous at just the right times. It certainly provoked hours of deep discussion between myself and my gay friends on many levels and that alone was worth it. My only regret is that the movie didn't last longer.
