Man in an Orange Shirt (2017)

Novelist Patrick Gale drew a key scene in Man in an Orange Shirt (BBC
Two) from family history: how his mother found a stash of passionate
love letters in his father’s desk and was horrified to see they had been
 written not by a former girlfriend, but by the best man at his wedding.



Just such a discovery proved pivotal in the opening part of this fine TV
 drama, which explored the corrosive impact of being unable to pursue
love truly and to the full. Up to that point, the story had been a
familiar, if exquisitely wrought, tale of repression; of how two Army
officers, Michael (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) and Thomas (James McArdle), met
 during the Second World War and fell in love.





A love story in two films charts the very different challenges to
happiness for Michael and Thomas in the aftermath of World War 2, and to
 Adam and Steve in the present day.



Season 01, Episode 01

British Army captain Michael Berryman falls in love with war artist
Thomas March in the chaos of the Italy campaign, but can their romance
be allowed to endure when the over is over? A chance conversation with
her grandson reminds Flora Berryman, now 90, of the dark and difficult
years of her marriage to Michael, and a story she might never have
known.



Italy, 1944. As Allied troops push up through southern Italy, Captain
Michael Berryman finds his regiment under fire. With their medic dead,
Michael triages the wounded being dragged into the besieged crypt they
have taken refuge in. Amongst them is war artist Thomas March, known
briefly by Michael from his school days. The two men survive the night
and in the following days, a bond forms between them as Michael is drawn
 to Thomas’s bohemian charms
.

The two guys meet in the war. Next minute they start kissing with no lead up. They promise to find each other after the war. Like they are
madly in love. We never get to see how they fall in love so hard or that
they're really attracted to each other. The show is much more
interested in the hot guy marrying a woman, how she feels. It's meant to
be the centerpiece of Gay Britannia but it's much more about the
straight marriage than a gay relationship. It is clearly made for
straight people.
At the start we can see the butts of soldiers. In the front view the
camera just cuts off at the pubes. Just one hour later and it would have
been post-watershed. Even pre-watershed, Against the Law was in the
same time slot and it showed gay sex. In Man in an Orange Shirt scenes
are cut from kissing to cuddling after sex. Gay sex is clearly happening
in the story, but not shown on screen. And straight sex with his wife
is shown on screen, as a way to demonstrate the crude, dispassionate
mechanics but still.

I've seen the second part already.
I'd rather watch Part 1 again.

The second story in Part 2 is kinda weak. Great acting actually especially from Vanessa Redgrave and Julian Morris.

The chemistry of the two gay leads is ZERO!!!!!
No sparks at all! Weak casting in Part 2.

Part 1 is the best for me.
I can watch it all over again.
The drama is intense.
Of course, the love story of Michael and Thomas love
