The new Showtime series Penny Dreadful is going somewhere that no other major television series is going these days.
On the show's fourth episode airing this Sunday night, series stars Josh Hartnett (Ethan) and Reeve Carney (Dorian) shared a super passionate kiss that led to some full on shirtless making out. Granted it's not necessarily groundbreaking, but in a television landscape that has shied away from showing what homosexuality actually looks like (see Season 6 of The Sopranos. On second thought, don't) it's pretty risqué.
Dorian takes him back to his place saying how sorry he is and tries lightening the mood with talk about cologne. It's weird and intimate at the same time. Even the way he deposits sugar cubes in a drink says seduction. They toast the most mysterious thing in London, Miss Vanessa Ives. Dorian decides to play a little mood music and spins some Sade, I mean Wagner. I blinked and Ethan rushes to Dorian, kissing him full on the mouth. This may have been the what the hell moment of the century. They get naked and go at it full Brokeback style. What? --Via
I would hardly call that "full Brokeback style," but it's definitely hot no matter how you label it.
