Queer As Folk USA – Season 1-5 Complete

MV5BNjgzMjc3MzY5N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzM0OTcyMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_I can’t speak highly enough of this show! Our friend Alistair told us about it, so I sent off for season one from Amazon. We were just hooked right from the start! It is much more accessible than the British version – this series is set in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. It looks a very cold place! But even so you just feel like you want to know these people, and share in their world.

Whilst the main focus is on the gay men there is a token lesbian couple who are just great.

The main characters are Brian (Gale Harold) who was just great as the sexy cold Brian. Justin, Michael, Emmett (my favourite character) played by the great Peter Paige. Ted, Lindsay and Melanie but it is Sharon Gless who steels the show as Michael’s Mum. Playing totally against type as a dowdy waitress, when you think how sexy she was in Cagney and Lacey but here she shines through simply with just great acting!

It is true that the show does feature very graphic gay sex scenes, sadly mostly with the men but once you get past that it is such a strong cast and so well written. We found ourselves totally addicted to it.

Now out in a box set of all 5 season’s – go and grab a copy and curl up ready for those cold winter nights!
