They're back, and unfortunately, no better. C and I did watch it all the way through (even though Project Runway also was on, and Michael Knight from Atlanta was designing a stunning Pam Grier-inspired number that won that episode's challenge). As with the first season, Noah's Arc has enough cute outfits and 'dos, some witty repartee, and enough eye candy to fill a small house party, but the problem is, it's the same preposterous storylines, goofy acting, and...oh well, see it for yourself. I just wish that someone would teach lead actor Darryl Stephens (Noah, at right, from Logo Online) a few more facial expressions; he always seems on the verge of giggling when he should be looking serious, and the trembling lip and rocking should have gone out with Sybil. He's like Carrie Bradshaw crossed with Joan Clayton, with a bit too much Gidget Lawrence tossed into the mix. I'm willing to believe cartoon-like versions of Black gbt men like this are out there, but please, try a bit harder to convince your viewers--acting is an art! Anyways, they're back, and all sorts of celebrity hotties, among them Season One veteran and talented actor Wilson Cruz, will be making guest appearances. At this point, that's the only reason I can find for continuing to watch this show.
