  • Series that follows the complicated life of a sex-obsessed Stuart Jones, his underaged boy toy Nathan, and his best friend Vince.

    I am one of the heterosexual women (from the US) who have been won over by this show. Maybe it's the handsome Stuart Jones, but I'm leaning towards a fantastic plot/story line and cast. Granted the show only ran for two seasons, but each and every single episode kept me entertained. I heard rave reviews about the US version, but never got around to watching it. When the UK version showed up on hulu, I figured I'd give it a shot. After watching the episodes on hulu in two sittings (couldn't stop, i was so curious as to what happened next), I watched the US version. Sad to say I was quite disappointed. The acting wasn't as believable in my opinion, and since the episodes were stretched out, I felt they had a lot of 'fluff' (where as the UK version they had to crunch everything in half the time, so less mulling around and with heavier acting). While I wish they would bring the British version back, the US version will give me my Queer as Folk fix. I already ordered the QAF (UK) DVD's ...

    Forget the fact the characters were gay the episodes were just very well written. These seemingly simple characters were actually quite complex and extremely relatable (whether you be male, female, gay straight, what have you) and put in situations anyone could be in.

    Never have I been so engrossed in a show...
