Logo, the gay cable channel, is reviving the great film Sordid Lives as a soap opera. This is going to be, to borrow from ultra gay Brian Rountree, Fab-u-losity! Ok, Brian wouldn’t actually say that, but I thought it would be fun to call him ultra gay.
Back to Sordid Lives. This film didn’t get much attention when it was released years ago. However, it was a smash hit in Palm Springs, where it played non-stop for about 95 years. It was practically a law in the dessert city that you had to memorize at least 5 lines of the film. One didn’t want to flub something of such importance.
This new soap opera looks really good. It’s got almost all of the original characters and even brings Blanche Devereaux back to the warm embrace of the aging gay populace. Rue McClanahan now plays the dead mother harlot that is thankfully alive and raising heck.
