This looks like an ideal time to strike up a completely abstract, academic discussion: QueerAsFolkSucks and QueerAsFolkRocks?! Go and put up opposing points of view, refactor the good ones up to this page, and let's see if we can't make a nice big discussion forum about the show, with pictures, plotlines, anything you would ever want to know about QueerAsFolk! Yay!

Queer As Folk, the original UK production, is an eight-part drama serial which follows the lives and loves of three young men - Stuart (Aidan Gillen), his best mate Vince (Craig Kelly) and Nathan (Charlie Hunnam) living it large in Manchester's Canal Street 'gay village'. The series is written by Russell T. Davis, who wrote the Doctor Who novel "Damaged Goods", as well as "The Grand", and two BBC telefantasy series, "Dark Season" and "Century Falls". It is directed by Charles Mcdougal.

Queer As Folk is a premiere gay soap opera, and has many fans in Nova Scotia. The original UK series is available on DVD at exorbitant prices. There's also a North American version, set in Pittsburgh, yet filmed in Toronto. The cast and characters are rather different, and it's a bit easier for the North American audience to understand. It includes Michael (Hal Sparks), Brian (Gale Harold), Justin (Randy Harrison), Emmett (Peter Paige), David the doctor (Chris Potter), Ted (Scott Lowell), Blake (Dean Armstrong), Debbie (Sharon Gless), Ben (Robert Gant).

The complete first season of the US series will be available on DVD and VHS as of January 22, 2002, and the new second season starts Monday, January 21, 2002 at 11:00 p.m. on Showcase.
