Drop Dead Diva: The Complete First Season: The Lifetime smash about a dim-witted model reincarnated into the body of a recently deceased plus-size attorney (the engaging Brooke Elliott) is a hoot, thanks in no small part to costar Margaret Cho. Guest stars such as Rosie O’Donnell, Delta Burke, and Liza Minnelli make this a must-see for gay viewers.
True Blood: The Complete Second Season: As put-upon heroine Sookie Stackhouse, Anna Paquin anchors one of television’s strongest (and most aesthetically pleasing) casts in Alan Ball’s lively series about the undead. The sophomore season of the HBO hit amps up the already-excessive camp, gore, and gay metaphors that made the first season such a sensation and provides a stereotype-shattering workout for Nelsan Ellis as gay fry cook Lafayette.
The Wolfman: Top-notch actors (Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, and Benicio Del Toro as the title character) try hard but can’t quite breathe new life into this sleek yet ultimately unsatisfying remake of the classic horror tale about the haunted nobleman with lycanthropic tendencies.
