About this Episode

Mike, Mike, and Darren look at this underrated comedy-drama that takes a nostalgic look at gay life before AIDS. Plus, writer and self-publisher Justin Gray wrangles the Geek Seat. All this, along with Angela's A Geek Girl's Take, Ashley's Box Office Buzz, Michelle's Iconic Rock Moments, Creative Outlet with James Palmer, and Shout Outs!
