Tell Me You Love Me

Last night we finished off Season 1 of HBO's Tell Me You Love Me. At first I wasn't sure if I could get into this show. It's probably one of the most awkward and depressing shows to watch but the more I watched the more I liked it. The characters and stories really started growing on me. The show also has lots of sex, realistic looking sex...I mean it borders on porn at points:

The series gained some early publicity because of its extremely realistic depictions of sexual intercourse, oral sex, masturbation and ejaculation. Despite persistent rumours to the contrary, and a notable lack of comment on the matter from either HBO or the production team, the sex scenes were finally confirmed as simulated by several individuals intimately connected with the show.

The fact that theres no music in the show is nice too, it adds a whole new level of tension. Anyway, if you like HBO shows that make you want to cry a little you should watch it.
