The Gay Agenda
By Peter Schaus
DVD: What's better than staring at openly gay British hottie (and former Out cover boy) John Barrowman for an hour? Watching him make out/battle with Buffy's James Marsters. Marsters doesn't make his first appearance until the second season premiere, but thankfully Torchwood: The Complete First Season will be released on January 22, so you can get caught up in time. Barrowman plays a bisexual alien hunter on the BBC cult favorite, which seamlessly mixes the sci-fi with the sexy -- think love child of Heroes and Queer as Folk. The seven-disc set features all thirteen first season episodes as well as cast and crew commentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and outtakes.
TUBE: Fantasia breaking her shoe upon the discovery of her win and urban superstar Clay Aiken performing 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' in front of a black gospel choir may have been classic TV moments, but our favorite part of American Idol will always be the lame-duck auditioners presented for Simon's flogging and public condemnation. While there will only be one Nate, this year gives us a whole new ragtag team of misfits to embrace the hearts and minds of America. Just look at Alexis . To watch the losers, the winners, and Paula Abdul's descent in Nelly O'Hara-esque pill fueled drug oblivion, check out American Idol on Tuesday, January 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
