Queer As Folk Essays

In the beginning, QAF is really good, well-written and sexy. And by the end, when it's degenerated into utter crap and Brian asks Justin to marry him, because he's fucked all the hot men in Pittsburgh, and no one really wants him anymore, except for Justin, I can't look away because by then I'm emotionally invested in these people. I want to see them be happy. Even to the bitter, badly-written end.


I'm not the only one right?

Brian/Michael shippers [Jan. 30th, 2006|07:32 pm]
Queer As Folk Essays

The thing is, Brian/Michael shippers are like Harry/Hermione shippers. What they fail to realize is that the two characters already have a great relationship, and don't need nor want to screw it up with sex.

Brian's a selfish prick, and takes many things in his life for granted. Except Mike. They accept each other, no apologies, no regrets. They support each other in hard times. But by no means is that a basis for a good romantic relationship. In fact, it's probably better for Michael that they never fuck. Getting involved with Brian leads everyone down a spiral of heartache and headache. Just look at Justin. He fell in love and look where it got him. A gimp hand, and an affair.

In response to Shawn Postoff, QAF writer [Aug. 18th, 2005|02:24 am]
Queer As Folk Essays

Recently, as many of you probably know, Shawn Postoff, one of the writers of Queer As Folk, wrote a letter to a fan explaining his take on why the show ended the way it did. I first found this post on the Showtime message boards, and I posted this in response.

(Mr. Postoff gave permission for his letter to be reproduced in message boards, blogs, journals, etc., so no copyright infringment is intended!)

Dear Mr. Postoff

Life of Brian; A Lesson In Standards: QAF Recap 507 06-26-05

by StickyKeys


My best “on location” friends Juanita and Jerrod were in town and I made them sit and watch with me, so this recap will be formatted a little differently than usual.

Talk about a crazy night to go with a crazy episode.

How B/J's relationship parallels B/M's in 507 [Jun. 22nd, 2005|06:42 am]
Queer As Folk Essays

[mood |accomplished]

This is my first try writing an essay, just so you know ^_^

I just got done watching the previews on www.sho.com for episode 507, and noticed something that might be interesting. About how Justin and Brian's current relationship parallels Brian and Michael's friendship a while back. [Since I have yet to see the episode, there are no spoilers past that scene. It's best if you watch the clip on Showtime before reading this so you know what I'm talking about :D]

spoilers for 507Collapse )

It's been awhile...

Why the Queer as Folk Fandom is so Wanktastic (Part 3)Collapse )

And for all the lazier members out there, here's a good essay prompt for you - tell me how you think season 5 compares to the other seasons. Write a 150 words or more, cut for spoilers and you've got yourself an essay.

B-A! B-Y! M-A! M-A!: QAF Recap Ep 503 05-29-05


After much sarcasm that would have got me popped in the mouth a couple of times, Michael finally tells Deb that he heard about the conversation Deb and Melanie had, and apparently Deb was on Mel’s side. Deb reiterates that the only side she’s on is Jenny Rebecca’s, and really, what kind of side is that? Either you believe the baby belongs with a single lesbian mother, or you believe she’s better off with two gay fathers. Jenny Rebecca’s side (and God I hate that name) is the one where she’ll be changed regularly, fed, bathed, and loved, and she’ll get that regardless. It’s like if someone asks you if you side with the White Sox, or the Cubs, and you say, “The only side I take is the vendor’s! I’m on the vendor’s side!” So in summation, Shut Up Deb!
