      good love is alike

      British dramas have always been miniatures, and Sherlock's three episodes only come out once a year, so I don't know how many fans are exhausted. This "Needless Wife" is also a miniature. It has 6 episodes in a season, and each episode is 20 minutes long, which means you can watch it in one afternoon on weekends~ and the United Kingdom, as a corrupt country, has always been proud of being rich in male and male CPs. This time The "Needless Wife" simply hits the rotten girl's G spot, with Gay...

      He is not only your son, but also my partner

      For most Chinese people and even people on earth, comrades are still a relatively obscure or invisible existence (the curtains in the two protagonists' homes are never drawn as a metaphor in the play).
      Regardless of what society thinks of them, the whole show has a family factor that binds them from start to finish. From the beginning to the end, Stuart's mother has always been a constant obstacle throughout the whole time. Every time Stuart calls him, he has to find various reasons to...

      There is no better way to grow old

      Just as the more powerful people dare to show their vulnerability, the more indestructible the lover is, the more unbridled the lover can lash out at each other, telling each other with the exclusive cynicism mode between the two: "I see you; I know you; I love everything you are”. The vicious tongues and swords are actually words of kindness that are so thick that they cannot be separated.

      And when the other half is attacked by others, both Freddie and Stuart will come forward and...

      Guess how old they are

      In our country, we attach great importance to the seniority and low status of the elderly, and it is more common to rely on the old to sell the old. In Europe and the United States, aging is not so pleasant, and the culture still advocates youth and vitality. As for the jokes of the elderly, a larger scale is considered malicious language. When the old people come out of their own mouths and complain to each other, it will be unexpectedly interesting.
      This is a simple sitcom. Most of...

      How deep is the accumulation of feelings to dare to speak nonsense to you

      I just finished writing my doctoral dissertation, and I felt idle, so I watched the first season again. The genius of this play is that the jokes can be kept fresh. Although I have watched some of the more loving little clips over and over again, this time, I still laugh like a fool.

      Actor Ian himself has said that Freddie and Stuart are a same-sex couple who have been together for nearly 50 years, which means that they met and fell in love in the 1970s. Ian thinks it is "heroic"...

      Tsk tsk gay playing gay two arrogant and arrogant laughing while occasionally inserting some very helpless tragedies as a gay, it is too difficult to enjoy the old age because it is too showy!
