'Where the Bears Are' strikes a comic chord with a gay subculture

There's a bear on the bed: 280 pounds. Covered in hair. Fast asleep. He's startled awake. There's a young man in the room, a good-looking one, and the bear's face is hidden behind a bulky rubber mask. "I have sleep apnea!" the bear says, yanking off the mask. "I look completely ridiculous. It's an overweight bear thing." The young man doesn't seem to care. He gives the bear, who's celebrating the fifth anniversary of his 40th birthday, a kiss. Welcome to the world of "Where the Bears Are," an online comedy series about ursine creatures of a different sort: big, hairy gay men. It's "The Golden Girls"...
