its ok i guess . The show tries to address some issues that plague the homosexual community but other than that its nothing more than playing to sterotypes that aren't true.

u r talking about the US version right ? not the original UK version ? The guys were hotter in the US version :p

Queer As Folk, the American version, ran for five seasons and is over now. It made many gay men angry because it emphasized the bar scene and all that that implies, but the producers said they were never trying to represent the entire gay community.

To its credit, the show did address a lot of important issues--AIDS, gay-bashing, political activism, drug addiction, and gay parenting.

For me, Queer As Folk was worth watching because of the compelling main character, Brian Kinney. I like Gale Harold!

I've recently become obsessed with this show (the US version). I'm in the process of downloading the entire first and second seasons. I'll have to wait to download the next three cause I have a monthly downloading limit and I dont wanna use it all up in one shot LOL. I'm so excited to watch it all though, I saw the first few episodes on a streaming site and I'm hooked now.

I totally agree. Love, love, love, love, love him. :hearts:

I watched few episodes but never got into it. Weeds (also on Showtime) is heaps better than Queer As Folk ;)

I watched the first and second season, but couldn't find a torrent for the third one. It's not aired on Dutch TV.

Anyways, I like the US version, however it does really re-emphasize all the stereotypes that exist. The UK version is much more realistic, but because of that maybe also more boring ;)

Watched it when it first came out. :o Thought the dialogue and the characters were painfully bad. As for Gale Harold, don't think he is hot at all. :shrug:

I'm interested. Thanks.

As hot as Brian is... the hottest person on the show (for me) was that musician Justin dates during the second season (I think). He's just prefect in every way. :hearts: Brian is a prick.

And the lesbian couple - yawn. :yawn:
