Tonight at 10pm. I will be watching with intrigue and gin. I can't imagine it.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:10:27

Oh, it's abit OTT!

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Mar-14 22:14:06

Oh, I have turned over, too cringey for me.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:16:15

It's too theatrical for me

TessTackle Mon 31-Mar-14 22:25:48

I'm loving it, they just had a lovely segment on. Someone singing weetus' little respect while pics and statistics about aids and repression were shown.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:29:04

It was Erasure. The original version I think? My gay friends have turned it off. I'm sticking with it.

itstheyearzero Mon 31-Mar-14 22:30:03

Yes it was Andy Bell from Erasure,

Stinklebell Mon 31-Mar-14 22:34:52

I'm loving it. It's fab!

TessTackle Mon 31-Mar-14 22:35:12

Ha! How embarrassing! I'll just go <gets coat>

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:36:44

Oh, don't be embarrassed that some of us are old enough to remember the original!

TessTackle Mon 31-Mar-14 22:37:59

Ok I'll stay then! I'm really enjoying this. I've always been so pro gay rights, it has to be watched!

Stinklebell Mon 31-Mar-14 22:38:45

grin I remember the original too.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:40:31

I'm the biggest fag hag around but never been into musical theatre! It's very ott but I can't stop watching! Is it pre recorded?

Meglet Mon 31-Mar-14 22:42:00

I can't see Erasure without thinking of the Trevor & Simon versions <shows age>.

A lad I used to go to college with is there. Have the male choir been on yet, I think he's in that.

Devora Mon 31-Mar-14 22:42:26

I'm quite enjoying it, though I didn't expect to. I'm a hardened old hag, but feeling quite emotional - watching those clips of the 80s, and remembering what it was like then, and how far we've come smile

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:43:53

Yes. My mate was down Compton street the day of the bomb. I was frantic. It seems like yesterday.

Sparklingbrook Mon 31-Mar-14 22:44:02

Swing your pants

eyestightshut Mon 31-Mar-14 22:44:16

Holy Christ, this is awful - musical theatre is my worst nightmare..

SnakeyMcBadass Mon 31-Mar-14 22:45:12

I got a tear in my eye at the vows. They are clearly very much in love <blows nose>

itstheyearzero Mon 31-Mar-14 22:46:24

Who is the pregnant lady in green? She looks familiar.

TessTackle Mon 31-Mar-14 22:46:26

I sobbed at the vows! <hands Snakey a hankie>

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:49:01

My mates are all turning off in droves. Just the straight ones left!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:51:14

The lady in green is probably a theatre singer. They are all. Good job they have the connections I can't imagine any of my family doing a turn!

itstheyearzero Mon 31-Mar-14 22:53:31

My GBF says he wants to kill himself!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 31-Mar-14 22:54:34

Yes, mine is being sick in a bag as we speak!
