The groundbreaking show is based on the books by Armistead Maupin. It first appeared on our screens back in 1993, way before shows like Queer as Folk, The L Word, and Looking  focussed on the chosen families of queer communities.

The original mini-series starring Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis aired in 1993, and two further installments came in 2001 and 2003.

Sixteen years after the last installment aired Netflix returned viewers to the world of 28 Barbary Lane in San Francisco, with a continuation of the story.

Tales of the City opens with Mary Ann Singleton deciding to move from Cleveland, Ohio to bohemian San Francisco.

She takes up residence at 28 Barbary Lane alongside a collection of intriguing characters  including openly gay Michael “Mouse’ Tolliver, marijuana growing landlady Anna Madrigal, bisexual hippy Mona Ramsey and straight Lothario Brian Hawkins.

 

If your after some cold winter night binge viewing check out Tales of the City, More Tales of the City, Further Tales of the City and the most recent Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City.
