vl: ollian kiss

this is why i love german soap operas

Preview for today's episode -- Deniz & Roman (DeRo) from Alles was zahlt (All That Matters)

Hands down, the hottest love scene I've seen on a soap opera, gay or straight. UNF. THE TONGUE-FLICK. THE RETURN OF THE ESKIMO KISS.

I knew of DeRo way back when I first started watching Ollian on VL but I also knew that their story didn't have a happy ending. I didn't want to invest all that time watching youtube clips when I knew the couple would breakup. Now they're going for round 2 and I'm tagging along for the ride. This is a soap after all so I know that happy endings = boring (case in point: the VL writers still don't know what to do with Ollian). I've also found that AWZ is a lot more campy fun than VL, there's lots of semi-naked guys and shots of Roman's naked ass. What's not to love?

On this side of the pond, today is the day Oliver comes out to his roommates on OLTL \o/ I think we're going to be seeing Kyle torn between Oliver and Nick and oh, it's going to be good.

The moral of the story? The way to get me to watch your soap is to introduce a hot gay couple LOL
