Snaps to the makers of QAF for trying to bring their characters into the grown-up world Michael, Emmett, and Ted started their own businesses; Justin finally cut loose from Brian-but too many melodramatic plot twists and turns impeded a lot of the character development this show worked hard at during its first two seasons. Still, most of the cast was topnotch, including Harrison, whose Justin finally came into his own, and the always dependable Harold, who made Brian a fascinating creature through all his steamy travails and over-the-top encounters. --Mark Englehart

Queer as Folk is often criticized for its melodrama and insinuation (or perhaps, assumption by the public) that this is an attempt to portray the entire spectrum of gay life. But I don't think pure reality was ever the intention, the goal was for exposure, acceptance, and entertainment.
While I agree that QaF is not as realistic or as beautifully written as Six Feet Under, I still prefer it for its superior characterization. Some may argue that the characters are stereotypical, but I think those critics fail to pay enough attention to the individual personalities to see beyond the stereotype. With that assumption, anyone could be viewed as stereotypical until you get to know them. What I enjoy about QaF is that I can see my friends and family reflected in the characters of the show, whose personalities and dialogue are usually better differentiated than even Six Feet Under, and certainly more than a show like Friends, where 99% of the dialogue could be switched between speakers with absolutely no need to edit for style or content.
The character of Brian Kinney is far more complex than anything I've seen on television. Anyone who regards him as a flat character, or views his seemingly selfless acts as uncharacteristic obviously doesn't really understand his character.Read more ›
