  • BRING THE SHOW BACK

    make a movie or another show just as cool!!!! This sucks!
  • Many people ask me how I discovered the series,

    10
    It all started my Friend was looking for a story at the app Wattpad, searching tags the word love, and than she found a story about a 17 year old boy who goes to a club and meet someone is bigger than him a few years and his name was Ross, Ross did not believe in love, but the boy Jasper fell in love with Ross, and that how it goes

    In short, at the end of the story the writer said that her inspiration was from the series,

    Then my friend and I thought to see the series, and another friend of my said that we have to see queer as folk, that this is a great show

    And that's how I discovered the series ..

  • Reunion Episode please!!

    10
    They should do a ten year anniversary reunion episode in 2015 (movie-length :D). I reckon that'd be so epic. Like, all the characters ten years later. See where their lives led them. I wanna see Gus and JR grown up (sort of...15 and 11 anyway). If Brian and Justin kept up a long distance relationship. If Ted and Blake stayed together. If Emmy found love. If Debbie and Carl are still together. If Mel and Linds ever came back to Pittsburgh. If Ben and Michael are still adorabubble. If Hunter is still in Pittsburgh.



    So many questions. So little answers. Maybe if there was special reunion episode? Hmm, producers? Wink wink nudge nudge...



    Pretty please with a cherry on top?moreless
  • True To Life

    8.0
    Being a gay male and living in a larger city area it was like watching a mirror reflection of myself. Especially in Justin's character, I caught myself saying, "Oh my God! That was ME!" The vampirish nightlife was very true to form. The casual sex. It is very realistic and it was quite an eye opener when it debuted even for somebody that was well seasoned in the lifestyle!



    The first season was the best as far as the catty humor and fun of it all. If you were gay you laughed a lot because you knew people EXACTLY like the main characters. As each season progressed it got more and more serious and lost the humor aspect and I quit watching about the middle of the third season because it got down right depressing. It was a very experimental project as far as pushing the envelope on gay life when it was NOT socially acceptable at the time! Nobody had really probed into the serious depths of gay life and to see it on TV was actually quite shocking, "OMG! I can't believe they just showed that!" - or said that - or did that. It was very hip and up to the moment on style, music, slang lingo - everything.



    The cinematography was new in the zooming methods they used that punctuated everything. I still go back and watch the first season and just smile. I can remember just howling at that party when Emmett dressed in drag as Jackie Kennedy. That whole scene was worth watching the series. Hilareous! The first season I would say it was a 10, but the following seasons brought it down to about an 8.moreless
