Queer as Folk
A sort of Sex in the City for (and with) gay men, Queer as Folk was controversial when it premiered on Showtime. Now, the ground-breaking show has begun its last season.
Queer as Folk Begins Last Season
The fifth-and last-season of Queer as Folk began this Sunday May 22. The show caused controversy for the topics it portrayed with a combination of ruthless realism and Hollywood plotlines. Right-wing groups were outraged at the show, which often depicts both fairly graphic homosexual encounters and loving homosexual relationships.
Peter Paige, who portrays Emmett Honeycut and is one of the show's openly gay actors, feels conflicted about the show's ending. According to Zap2It, Paige has, "very mixed feelings about [ending the show]…On the one hand, I've been playing this for five years now, so I'm excited to put on someone else's leather pants. But on another level, when we lost the [2004 U.S. presidential] election, I thought, 'No. I want to come back and make more TV next year, because it's so important that something like this is on the air.' I hope that something comes along soon to take our place."
Aside from the political concerns, many viewers will miss Queer as Folk because of its soap-opera-like quality of drawing viewers into people and plots. Also, the actors are seriously hot.
Rosie O'Donnell guests on the new season of Queer As Folk as a new employee at the Liberty Diner where she develops a crush on Debbie Novotny’s (Sharon Gless).
Queer as Folk plays on Showtime on Sundays at 10:00 PM.
