-->'''Violet''': Has anybody said you remind them of ZacEfron? [whispering to Stuart] ''That's a person right? Or is it a place?'' [to Ash again] Well I'm certain I know you. Have you ever been to Zac Efron? [whispering to Stuart] ''I'm covered either way now.''

Whilst the show is essentially about [[CaptainObvious vicious old homosexuals]] sniping and insulting one another, the presence of [=McKellen=] and Jacobi affirms that it's better than it sounds. Also, despite the pilot receiving a mixed critical response, [[CriticalDissonance the show currently has a strong fan following.]] The first series had [[BritishBrevity only six episodes]], followed by a ChristmasSpecial. Series two is currently airing after a long wait, due to the cast's [[AllStarCast obligations]] in [[GameOfThrones other]] [[Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast high-profile]] [[TheHobbit productions]]. Airs in the U.S. on Creator/{{PBS}} as of 2014.

* NWordPrivileges: This show probably would have been considered massively offensive were Ian Mckellan and Derek Jacobi not well known for being openly gay

Added DiffLines:

* AwfulWeddedLife: The show demonstrates that this trope is not necessarily heteronormative, given how much Freddie and Stuart fight.

* AccidentalAthlete: In 2.1, Stuart and Violet keep insisting that Ash, who is pretending to be a trained gymnast, show off. As it turns out, Ash is quite good at backflips.
* AccidentalPervert: Subverted by Violet, who knows exactly what she's doing.
-->'''Ash''': Your hand is really high on my thigh...\\
'''Violet''': Is it?
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: This happens several times with Freddie and Stuart both, who both enjoy being recognized as better than the other at everything or anything.
** Inverted in 1.3, as Freddie becomes Ash's mentor, but becomes jealous when Ash lands his first role in a small movie. Ash, meanwhile, is just pleased he has a job.

* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Parodied in 2.1, when Ash brings Jess to meet [[{{FamilyOfChoice}} "the most important people"]] in his life, only to be drawn into playing the part of Violet's stepson to impress Violet's sister. As part of the con, Violet pulls him into an awkward kiss, and makes up embarrassing infantilizing anecdotes about him. Then, she and Stuart egg him into performing a backflip -- a feat they were [[{{AccidentalAthlete}} unaware he could perform]].
** Averted when it's revealed to Jess what was going on and she's delighted, sparing Ash some embarrassment.
