You ask for my thoughts....well here they are, I have watched five episodes, I have watched Neal wine and dine and flirt, and supposedly have such passion for Kate, ONLY to find out in real life he is gay. I feel lied to, I don't care if Neal in real life is gay that is his issue, BUT when they sell him to me as a passionate lover of women in a show, then I object. I have lost all interest in him as an actor. He needs to make gay films in my opinion. I fell cheated and lied to and trust Hollywood even less than I did before.
Your guidelines say keep open minded about differing opinions, WELL THIS IS MY OPINION. And if it is different from yours, so be it.
