Noah, What’s the T?
It’s no secret that Noah’s Arc is my favorite show on the tube today. No, it’s not the riveting acting or the thoughtfully laid-out plot lines – truth is the acting is still mediocre and the plots show the need for creative writers to join creator and writer Patrik Ian-Polk to generate some meatier scripts. Noah’s Arc simply has characters that allow me to see myself – albeit physically – on television. The story, about 4 gay black friends in Los Angeles, is in its second season. After a season finale that left, main character, Noah man-less, hooker-freak Ricky in love and Alex bewildered and lonely, the boyz have returned with more flavor, added supporting characters and a change in the main character’s personality traits. The most disturbing of these character changes is Alex. Formerly the momma bear and pull-no-punches character, Polk has managed to relegate Alex to a punked-out fool who questions exposing his partner Trey’s (now) homeboy, Guy as a man-stealing closet queen. This has been undoubtedly the most disappointing story line of the season. It is undermining NA’s ability to be believable, while still delivering acceptable cheesy dramedy. I’m still holding tight and hoping the series takes a more thought-out turn. Don’t miss LOGO’s reruns of the previous week’s episode each Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. and the current episode immediately following it at 10 p.m.

If you’ve been watching Noah’s Arc you know that the characters have decidedly different personalities; some over-the-top and some mainstream. What character do you most identify with? Which character do you wish you were more like?
