Opposite Ends

Following the bitter breakup with his recent girlfriend, ROXANA, PAUL finds himself being forced to look for a new roommate, and places an ad in the local paper. After interviewing several potential candidates, each of which displays some kind of odd behavior, Paul comes across DORIAN, the two seem to have a great deal in common, as both enjoy sports, nice clothes, the same genre of movies, with both being local Bartenders.
It is not until Dorian moves in, with the help of his off-and-on again lover, PABLO, and several of his Drag friends, that Paul discovers that Dorian is gay. They both agree initially, that it might be best if Dorian does take the apartment. That is until one faithful night when Dorian runs to Paul's rescue, during a mugging.
Ultimately the two become roommates, but most importantly, they become best friends.
Dorian and Paul find themselves sharing their ups and downs, and relationship problems with each other, as the two roommates awkwardly dance around each other, as not to offend one another--while getting a glimpse into each other's world, and the quirkiness that follows; with each episode ends with a musical tribute to one of the many musical groups of the 70's.
