Those of you who have been watching BET J in the wee hours of the morning know how addictive "Noah's Arc" can be. But will it make a good movie?
I think it will.
Why? Well, for one Patrik-Ian Polk is one of Hollywood's most creative writer/directors. He broke out of the box and created a show about four gay friends in Los Angeles that gave us all new insight into gay black males. Sure, the show which aired on Logo for two seasons was a little campy at times--and maybe even stereotypical--but it didn't take long before folks straight and gay could relate to Noah and his friends.
When last we saw them on TV, Noah (Darryl Stephens) was leaning over Wade's (Jensen Atwood) injured body. Noah and Wade had just professed their love for each other in a rest room on the beach when Wade's man Dre (Merwin Mondesir) totally busted them. During his rush to get home and Duke it out with Wade, the estranged couple were involved in an auto accident that apparently left Wade hanging on for dear life.
As fate would have it, Logo canceled the popular series after the season 2 cliffhanger. "Noah's Arc" fans, of course, were outraged.
So, has Wade recovered? Will he and Noah marry in "Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom? Or will Ricky (Christian Vincent) have finally stopped screwing everyone in town and settled down?
I guess we'll all have to wait until Oct. 24 to find out!
