It Was Love (Love!) at First Sight

The 1981 miniseries version of Brideshead Revisited is quite amazing so far. I figured the show would be homoerotic since the source novel is often noted for it. I was surprised, however, at how openly gay it is, especially for 1981. Maybe it's because I'm used to reading between lines, but Brideshead Revisited makes it blatantly clear that Charles (Jeremy Irons) and Sebastian (Anthony Andrews) are in a relationship (whether or not they are physical is another issue). Good stuff all around, I must say. I can't wait for the next nine episodes.
