  • Season Five at its Finest

    The conflict and escalating tension in this episode was lovely! I felt so bad for Hunter and squealed at the Brian and Justin shower scene. Melanie and Lindsay's relationship remains consistent to their characters and Den and her protege's actions inspired me. Queer as Folk is a wonderful show and I am not ready to let it go.
  • Both Brian's friendship and relationship are going downhill fast.

    Brian won't give up on how marriage is the death of a relationship. And where as he may disagree with Michael's choices, it is no reason to abandon your friendship with him, someone you've known and loved your entire life. Brian can't see the fact that Michael will always love him, perhaps more than Ben, and that he'll never leave him. Just because he moves a few miles away to the suburbs to raise his kid, is no reason to sabotage one of his only real friendships. Brian needs to realize this before it's too late. He also needs to straighten up with Sunshine, because their relationship may be lost to the backrooms of Babylon... again.moreless
  • Danger, danger Brian Kinney! Come on man!

    Even though Brian and Justin are back and cute as ever and Brian and Michael have managed to find a way to balance their respective worlds Brian just can't let anything go. He, of course, has to take things to a seriously uncomfortable and inappropriate level. I mean he can not let Michael have his world, his life. He is happy where he is with his husband and his children. And yet Brian tries to entice him back to the world of backrooms and Babylon. I can not understand why he feels he needs to do this. Just because Michael has left that world does not mean that Michael has left him. No matter where he is or who he's with he will always love him, Brian has actually that to Michael himself. So, why can't he see it?moreless
