QUEER AS FOLK is still one of the most amazing TV Shows ever and is a landmark as the show for the new millennium. This New Queer As Folk Season 4 DVD Box Set has all 14 episodes of the fourth season which still happens to be one of the most controversial and bravest series on television today. The BOX SET includes Bonus features such as: Behind-the-scenes with Peter Paige's directorial debut; Sneak peek at Michelle Clunie and Gale harold's latest movie; Behind the Babylon tour; Wardrobe closet; Photo gallery; Biographies; plus Previews and promotions. I have seen all 14 episodes of Season 4 and it is another great and very emotional season. Like before I am a little upset that this season is very short (like season 3) when compared to season 1 and 2. Either way season 4 is still a good season. I am still amazed at how honest this show is on dealing with gay life. Queer As Folk ia about the life of a group of gay guys and a lesbian couple living in Pittsburgh. Queer As Folk makes no apologies and thats what is so great about this series. From the graphic sex scenes to the drama of dealing with the prejudice that still haunts America, this show is so brave and I give Showtime a big thumbs up for having the balls to take on such a big risk as Queer As Folk. This show has some issues that are far more real for some than others. This is not a show just for gay people, but for ALL people. It deals with human emotion and thats something that we can all relate to whether we be straight, gay, bisexual, black, white, brown or in between. With season 5 rumored to be the final season I encourage you all to enjoy this great show because very few shows can touch your heart yet push the limit as far as this show has.Read more ›

Format: DVD
This was a good season for the characters. Ted, who was considered the wallflower, started becoming a stronger person through each episode. He kicked his drug addiction, dropped those druggies, renewed his friendship with the gang, and gained a job in Brian's new company Kinetic.

I was also glad that Cowlip decided to focus more on Michael and Ben's relationship. The previous season showed less of them and too much of Brian and Justin whose relationship is an "open door policy". In the wake of presidential elections, gay marriages caused a furor between "family value" groups and the GLBT community. Cowlip had to step up to the plate on Michael and Ben showing them tackle parenting Hunter, a street kid who was forced to do tricks to feed his mother's drug habit, and resolving relationship conflicts.

I was sorry to see Victor pass on. He was just life on his own with his new partner and getting out from under Debbie's grasp. He is the mirror of the past and the future of gay men. He survived amidst the politics of sexuality and civil rights. His extravagant lifestyle forced him to lay low just as he was getting himself back on track (working with Emmett and his newfound love), he had to die. I thought that was a blow, but it was also the beginning of the end of the series.

The relationship between Melanie and Lindsay has experienced highs and lows, but it takes another turn. Melanie, carrying a child, tries to juggle a career and maintain the household. They both dote very much on Gus.

Debbie, Michael's mother, is always full of mouth. She and Horvath get back together. Good. She and Emmett share a house since both of them can't live alone. Speaking of which, Emmett can never live by himself. He lived with Michael; then he lived with Ted.

Format: DVD
I'm sure as most you have read in the previous comments, the packaging to this season is nowhere NEAR as good as the previous seasons. That's extremely true. The packaging is VERY fragile and basically four large DVD covers in a paper-thin box. The other seasons came with more bonus features, more thought behind the look of the boxes, and a lot more thought in general. Some have speculated that Showtime is setting aside the money that was saved from this season's box set so that the fifth (and final) DVD would be much more extravagant and worth the money.

The content (excluding bonus features) is absolutely amazing. The shows are great, the plot is fantastic, and the characters are as real and unpredictable as everyday life. So if you love the show, buy the set, it'll be worth it. Don't get it for the packaging or the non-existent bonus features, get it for what the box set is all about this season, the show.

As an avid view of the show, I urge anyone to at least RENT this series on DVD! This is such a good show. The first couple of seasons are really hard for people to get past because of the "graphic" sex scenes (I only use quotations because, to me, now they aren't so graphic). As the program has continued on and the characters have aged, the sex has died down (thus ending the shock-factor to draw in audiences), and the storylines have matured.

You can honestly look at these characters and relate them to everyday people in your life. They have such emotion and depth to them that the crazy situations that they continuously find themselves in start to become believable.

Don't get me wrong, this is a nighttime soap opera with gay characters, but it's not cheesy or fashion-centered. Even though it is highly unlikely that a group of friends would go through all of the things this group does, you don't feel as if it is too fake while watching. Actually, many of the plotlines are funny--even if only for an episode.

The point of the program is to show that love and friendship is universal--no matter what your orientation. Give it a chance, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Showtime has already re-released seasons one through three at much more reasonable, lower prices. It has been more than a year since season three was re-released. Hopefully they will re-release a re-prices season four before too long. I can't find any info on that, though.
