Queer As Folk is one of the most amazing TV Shows ever and is a landmark as the show for the new millennium. This amazing Box Set has Season 1,2, and 3. After three seasons I am still amazed at how honest this show is on dealing with gay life. Not every gay person lives a life like these guys, but that is not what this show is about. 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 is as close as it gets to real life. 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. I encourage anyone who has a open mind and a open heart to BUY this amazing DVD collection as it will inspire you and if nothing else open your mind to a lifestyle not as uncommon as you may think. Watch more than one episode before you judge this amazing series. With season 1, 2, and 3 you will be entertained with this awesome show for more than a few days!
Queer As Folk The Complete First Season - The first Queer As Folk DVD Box Set has all 22 episodes of the first season of the most controversial and bravest series in the history of television. The total running time of all 6 DVD's is approx: 1,205 minutes which includes Bonus features such as: behind the scenes outtakes, deleted scenes, special edition episodes, a Photo Gallery, DVD rom extras, A 6 minute Season 2 Sneek Peek, and much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obsessed August 24, 2004
Verified Purchase
Brian Kinney is one of four or five main characters in Queer As Folk. Another character...a psychiatrist...tells Brian: "For someone with enough disorders to merit your own classification in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, you are one of the most well-adjusted and high functioning bastards I know."

Can you resist that? I can't.

I haven't been as obsessed with a work of fiction since I started reading about Francis Crawford of Lymond et Sevigny 'way back in 1969, and for much the same reasons. Brian Kinney, like Lymond, often does the right thing in the cruelest way possible and, like Lymond, is most dangerous when he feels most. Like Lymond, I find him endlessly fascinating...proving that you don't have to be young and/or homosexual to be seduced by this show.

Besides Brian, the overall level of writing and plot is generally high although, as I suppose is inevitable, not every episode strikes home. Enough do, though, to put Queer As Folk on a level by itself. njs

5.0 out of 5 stars Aaaddictive....!! December 2, 2004
By arial
I have only recently acquired this 3-season set (in Nov 2004) after reading much about it (solely) in the web. Based on the mixed reviews QAF123 received, I decided to order it to watch it for myself. Did not know whether or not it was a good idea at the time since it would cost me quite a sum. I hesitated for months before I eventually gave in to temptation and just bought it. It did not matter anymore how much (financial) damage it would cost me.

But guess what, I was not disappointed at all. QAF123 was a pleasure to watch and I immediately fell in love with it. The characters were very well-played, they can be sometimes funny, sometimes sad, the soundtrack was great, the directing, very adventurous. Overall, QAF123 is well worth watching. Although I cannot really relate to the characters, I find QAF123 really entertaining and well... very addictive.

I must also confess that Gale Harold is absolutely beautiful... cannot seem to get enough of him. His Brian Kinney character is really complex and intense but he pulled it off with flying colours. Gale's performance is really top notch, nuff said. In fact, all the other casts were terrific too.

I cannot wait for QAF4's official DVD release and I cannot wait for Season 5 as well. Hopefully, QAF will continue for many more seasons to come although that may well be just wishful thinking on my part. Nothing goes on forever but I will make sure I acquire every available QAF season there is. It's a real collector's item.

For your info, I am a straight female and I love Queer As Folk... totally. If you are into something queer, both funny and dramatic at the same time, excellent soundtrack, great acting and directing, then you should consider getting the QAF DVDs... you won't regret it. I am gonna purchase the QAF soundtrack on CD next. Cannot wait to get it!

Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best thing on TV January 14, 2005
With all the crap currently saturating out screens, one looks desperately for a beacon of light. This, ladies and gentlemen, is it. Watch this show -- you will laugh, you will cry, you will scream, and you will smile (at least once per episode) guarunteed. If you want to be entertained indefinately, buy the best show on television. Queer as Folk is the most fun you've had in years

5.0 out of 5 stars The Entire Collection From a Great TV Show May 16, 2004
When "Queer As Folk" debuted on Showtime in 2000, it immediately sparked controversy, raising many eyebrows. Its unique graphic visionaries of sexuality has kept many talking. Not because of the sexual theme itself; it's the sexuality between two members of the same sex. The "in-your-face" effect earns the brave cast and crew tremendous respect for doing what no other has successfully done before. Before its debut, only two sitcoms have explored sexual orientation extensively: "Ellen" and "Will And Grace". The brilliance and the success of "Queer As Folk" has since earned rave reviews by many critics and still is today. Since its debut, the show has won and been nominated for several awards, including three, and counting, consecutive GLAAD Award nominations for Outstanding TV Drama.
The variey of character personalities offers great plot variety. Brian's frequent sexual activity, Michael's homelike presence, Emmitt's flamboyance, and Ted's shyness are only some traits that offer such joy to audiences. Justin, Debbie, Mel, Lindsay, and Ben also offer their own unique presence. The acting offers more great additional entertainment value. New and interesting ideas always keep audiences awaiting for the next episode. The combination of realism, drama, and slight comedy offers issues that some viewers can relate, including the straight/ ally community. Besides GLBT issues and struggles, it explores drug use, HIV/ AIDS, hate crimes, pornography, and many others. The shock value offers a great unforgettable experience. As the seasons progress, the plot and the characters follow.
Season one, the season always to be watched first, explores the coming out process, struggles in high school, struggles in the workplace, same sex couples raising a child, and others.
