In my first Television class ever I learned that the first male gay kiss on American television was "peformed" on the NBC sitcom Will&Grace. In addition to being a quite funny and witty show that exposes many of our shallow human desires which backfire and trait the ideals we try to hold up, Will&Grace did an extraordinary thing in their second season. For the first time in the history of American television two men kissed on-screen. Or maybe it wasn´t as extraordinary but long overdue? After all, there were two gay men among the main characters. So it was this kiss I was thinking about the other day after I had seen an episode of Blackadder:

My two cents on other aspects of the latest episode of House. )

And in the end some further reading for those who are interested in TV theory:
John Fiske, Television Culture
Janet McCabe and Kim Akass, Quality TV - contemporary american television and beyond
Mark Bennett, TV Sets: Fantasy Blueprints of Classic TV Homes

This may be loaded with mistakes because I worked way too long on it. I apologize to everyone for that.
