Maybe he's just a big fan of same sex kissing in virtually every episode?
I definitely am.
It isn't well done - tends to be gratuitous - but I'd rather have it than not.
I don't know about the rest of limey television, but as far as I can tell, homosexuals and bisexuals don't get any representation on American TV.
I'm not sure if that's true. They just don't get much in primetime on public airwaves ("Won't somebody think about the children?"). I do seem to recall that the female cylons did a lot of 'close talking', 'face stroking', and 'meaningful looks' in a few of the earlier BSG epis.
Of course, over here, "hot chix kissin'" is about the only acceptable alternative lifestyle.
