Shirts & Skins, The Complete First Season
Follow the lives, loves and interpersonal relationships of gay gold medal-winning basketball team, The Rockdogs. The San Francisco team is trying to come back together after disbanding in 2006, struggling to overcome their differences off the court, and working together as a team to prove they're still the champs. Action on the court is rivaled by off-the-court action as some of the players live together, party, bicker, and hook up. As these twentysomething, multi-ethnic athletes make a boys to men journey they learn not only the importance of teamwork, but help redefine the meaning of family. In this two-disc set, you'll get the entire first season.

Drama, Life & Love.....Sep 18, 2009
By A. Chase
Ok guys, It was a very interesting series, these guys went through so much, from coming back together after disbanding for 2 years, then reuniting to going to play for the championship in Chicago, one of the main characters I fell in love with from the begining because of his innocences was Mike, he was very attractive in body, soul and mind. One of the biggest issues was when Jamel (a flamboiant member) of the team but an excellent basketball player was reading his Bible and saying to the rest of them that being gay is a choice, of course as in any other gay group discussion on the topic the rest of the team was outrage, not angry at him for speaking his mind but they found it difficult to understand where he was coming from. This drama went on a bit through out the dvd but it was interesting because different gay guys confronted him about it even an Ex-Nba player that came out. I don't wanna spoil that for you just in case you are thinking about buying the dvd, the other big issue was that Mike wasn't out to his mother and he wanted to tell her but didnt know how to, BUT he did came out to her though and you have to see the end result on that road and what she said mind you he came out to her on his cell, he didnt want to but he did you should hear what she said. I was a bit thrown off with 2 things there are no bonus features which I felt would have helped you to get to know the team better because the interviews with them or whatever would have been great, and I was thrown off that there was no sexual tention on the team now I knew it was about the basketball, but guys living under one roof for all that time??? LoL I am playing but there was none but all in all it was a good buy for me because I loved seeing their challenges, from a modelling fund raiser to help them get enough money to go Chicago the bill was about $8300.00 to just getting along with each other it was a very emotional ride. I don't do spoilers I preffer you to see it for yourself but just so you know in the end Jamel got his head right after he spoke to one more guy, so if you love a good dramatic ride this is a good buy. The 1 star missing was for the bonus features I would have loved to see extra's. I also notice they have Season One ??? but it ended not on a question mark for a Season Two it seamed completed to me guess Logo is going to have to tell us what's up....Much Love Peeps Blessings.

who knew that there were gay men who cared so passionately about sports...Jun 07, 2010
By Douglas E. Stewart
whats not to love...a racially diverse group of hard bodied gay men challenging stereotypes...while navigating the complexity of figuring out their lives...with some superb guest appearances by the finest of African American basketball player role models...even if basketball is not your thing your heart will race wildly throughout...
Blowout!!May 11, 2013
This was an inspiring series being able to see so many different views and walks of life come together to play basketball in the way the Rockdogs did.

Thank you Logo and thank you SF Rockdogs for inspiring me. I'm sorry it took me so long to watch it, Wow! What I missed!
Wish there was more ....Jul 11, 2011
This is not as much about "sex" appeal or exposure than the sport and love of b-ball and a group of close friends. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the season and was left feeling that there should be more to this ....
