    Just finished ep. 6( I think).  Michael just found out about the professor being positive. I just ended last night with him and his mom talking about it at her house in his old room.  I was interrupted so I didn't get to see it yet.  Ted and Em, what a crack up, in the porn business together.  So far it has more lighter moments than season 1.  For me the most tender is Brian trying  to help Justin remember.  I can't believe that Chris Hobbs only got community service.  He came onto Justin in season 1.  And Justin gave him a handj*b.  I think Chris is not sure of what he wants in life and saw Justin as the cause of his inner turmoil.  But, that judge getting glued to the toilet seat, ha,ha,ha.  I would of loved to see more with Michael and David and why they broke up.  I like Chris Potter and though he did a great job in QAF.  I used to watch him in Silk Stockings back in the early 1990s. 


    Yeah theres so many more evolving moments of Chris Hobbs over seasons. Justin is one of the most evolving characters throughout. You're coming close to one of my favorite Emmett storylines. Wait for his admirer! You have to keep me updated. And, by the way, the character of David unfortunately had to be wrapped up because the actor dropped out. His "reputation" as a straight man was too threatened I think. LOL! Anyways, Ben is hotter!

    The new movie of Gale Harold "East Broadway" is having some trouble with the distribuitors, so why don't you visit the web and send an email to producers telling how much you wanna see the movie.

    You mean there is more with Chris Hobbs??  Justin does seem him in the hospice mopping the floor.  Chris deserved worse.  He seemed to single out Justin, so to me there has to be something inside of him that he fears will come out.  That moment last season with the hand thing was soo touching.  I was thinking that Chris finally was going to accept Justin, maybe even like him, in a straight sort of way.

    I am now on ep. 12.  You must be talking about the old pickle guy who is Emmett's new beau.  I love it.  I never thought that he would end up having a relationship with  him.  Who says gay people are all about being young and beautiful??  I have really enjoyed watching Ted and Emmett and the whole porn thing, what a crack up!!

    I am now where Debbie is going to look into that boy who was found dead by the diner.  The reaction of the police was so true to life when they called the boy a Jane Doe and didn't seem to care.  Especially when that jerk Detective said I bet he made his mother proud in a sarcastic way, meaning the opposite.  That is exactly how it is.  The writing is so honest and true.

    Oh and Ben is much hotter than David.

    Yeah you haven't seen the last of Chris Hobbs or that rude detective either. Just wait until you meet the violinist on the last few episodes of this season. And my absolute favorite season finale ender is in this season! So much for you to see yet! I do agree also that the writing is quite true. It's sad people still feel that way. Truth holds strong in all seasons of QAF. I think that's why so many gay people were "offended" by the show. Most of the ones I know don't want to look in the mirror. That's why so many hated Brian and Emmett.

    Just finished where Em's boyfriend George died while they were having sex and joining the mile high club.  That wife of his could make any straight person switch teams, that's for sure.  I can't believe she had those 2 guys drag him out of the funeral.  That was sad because Em mad George very happy.  I had a feeling something was going to happen.  A trip around the world just seemed too good to be true.

    Justin and Mikey are writing their comic and Brian, oh Brian is sooo jealous.  He even peed on their papers.  I could of kick Brian in the a** for doing that, and he has such a cute one.  Debbie sure told him the truth about himself.  Hopefully he will realize that they both do, or did worship the ground he walks on.  Debbie for all her goofiness has some really good observations on these characters.  I'm glad she is dating someone.   It is about time.  I loved the line that he is a 55 year old straight guy with 55 year old straight guy thinking that needs to be enlightened. 

    I am getting close to the end of season 2.

    Ok, just finished season 2 and did it go out with a bang(no pun intended).  First of all I want to say this season seemed to have a lighter mood than season 1.  This is due to Ted and Em.  Those 2 are a riot and I could watch them all day.  I am not sure how I feel about them hooking up in the end though.  I would assume it won’t last.  They have such a wonderful friendship that I would hate for them to screw it up by hooking up.  But, you never know.  The best relationships are when the couple were friends, not just lovers.  Anyways, they kept the mood lighter and I enjoyed that.

    Mikey is living his dreams.  Not only did he buy the comic book store, but creating the Rage comic book.  Not sure how that is going to have a future since he and Justin are at odds again.  I like Ben and I hope their relationship continues.  It seems to be the only one that will, barring any more health issues.  Less obsessing over Brian, a good year for Mikey.

    Brian, what can I say.  He is still Brian and everyone’s (including me) fantasy.  I love it when he does such caring wonderful things, like dropping out of his important meeting to be with Mikey when Ben went into the hospital.  He really cares so much, but has such a hard time showing it.

    Now for the biggy, Justin.  I really thought the flirting of Ethan was kind of sensual.  I could tell he like Justin.  Personally, I think he is a good age and fit for Justin.  They are both students and excel in their crafts.  They make a good fit.  I am sure time will only tell.  I know Justin wanted Brian to show him his love and beg him to stay so he feels like Brian only wants him, but that is never going to happen.  One thing about Brian, he is deadly honest no matter how it hurts.  The ending was sad because I think Brian really does care, but he is not going to change or fight for anyone.  They have to be with him on his own terms and because they accept for those terms.  Justin is sooo young and starry eyed.  He wants it to be like it is in the movies.  Plus, when Mikey told Justin all that Brian has done for him, it is almost like a father, rather than just a lover.  Oh, well that is my opinions and thoughts.  Now onto season 3.

    Now you've got me curious about Ethan.  I think he is quite hot.  Not Brian hot, but hot.  I know they don't stay together so I can't wait to start on season 3 to see what happens.  I hope to start it this week.  I seem to be spending all my free time watching QAF.

    I just hope the Ted and Emmett thing does not ruin their friendship.  That would be very sad. 

    What was your thought on what Brian was thinking at the end when he dancing with his mask on after he just watched Justin and Ethan walk out of Babylon??    To me he was trying to hold it together and be the Brian we know, but was having a very hard time.  I think it affected him alot.

    Season 3 is awesome.  I have to say I like season 3 so far better than 2.  I am halfway through it.  First up the whole Ted and Em thing is working for me.  I just hope it is not going to end up bad.  Now that Ted lost his website and taking meds for his back, I see an addiction coming.  Oh, and Em found his nitch.  So one is taking off and one has crash landed, that makes good melodrama. I hope whatever happens in the future, that they remain friends. 

    I liked Ethan.  Not just because heis a cutie and has a real innocent sensuality about him, but I though he was good for Justin.  One night out and he already cheated on him though!!!  I think all the attention went to his head.  Justin is just trying to find someone to love him honestly.  I love the whole getting an internship at Brian' work.  I could see me doing the very same thing.  It worked. 

    Now for Brian.  Gotta love him, even when you want to kill him.  No wonder the guy can't show emotions, look at that lousy family he comes from.  The whole nephew accusing him and his ugly disgusting sister, and then that witch he calls a mother is enough to give anyone emotional issues.  I know he was glad to have Justin there.  That flirty banter they did back and forth really worked for me.  That is where I finished with them in Brian's office, should I say working late, ha,ha!!!

    Finished season 3 and it sure ended on a happy note with Brian(my hero) saving the election from Stockwell.  What a hunk he is, all that masculinity and be able to show his soft side.  Works for me.  He is an incredible character and Gale does a perfect job.  There were times I thought he only cared about money and power, but the human being inside the gorgeous shell of a man, came out.

    You are soo right about Ted. My goodness did he go down.  He just couldn't cope with losing his business and Em taking off on his.  I felt so sorry for Em.  He is such a sweet caring person.  That party he threw for Ted and was treated so horribly by him and his friends.  What a twist at the end for Ted to have his old love and drug addict be his counselor.  I hope Ted overcomes his addiciton, but more than anything I hope Ted and Em remain friends. 

    Mike and Ben are sure giving people.  I don't think I would of took a kid like that in.  I wouldn't trust him at all. They seem to have  a good strong relationship and that makes me happy for Mikey.  He can't spend his whole life waiting for Brian. 

    I really enjoyed season 3.  I am looking forward to season 4, which I will try and start next week, but being Thanksgiving it may be later.  Maybe not, I don't think I can wait.
