Product Description

QUEER AS FOLK Season 5 continues to follow the journey of a group of gay friends and lovers living in Pittsburgh. This critically acclaimed series brings with it mature stories about facing the challenges of same-sex parenting, discrimination, AIDS/HIV, cancer and morality.

Amazon.com

Gay has rarely been so glamorous as in the American version of Queer as Folk. But the show's success rests on more than hard bodies and glossy, picture-perfect sex (though there's an abundance of that); this series gave its characters a multidimensional richness that rivals more high-profile programs like Six Feet Under or The Sopranos, while tackling an impressive breadth of social and political issues without ever (well, almost never) feeling preachy. The fifth and final season lays out its themes with authority: Alpha-gay Brian (Gale Howard) buys and revamps the sex club Babylon, declaring promiscuity and independence as a gay birthright, while Brian's oldest friend Michael (Hal Sparks, Talk Soup) embraces domesticity with his partner Ben (Robert Gant); the flamboyant Emmett (Peter Paige) finds success as a tv personality, only to find his persona may trap him in a stereotype; and Ted (Scott Lowell) grapples with body prejudices within the gay community. Meanwhile, the crumbling relationship of Mel (Michelle Clunie) and Lindsay (Thea Gill) takes a more troubling turn when Michael demands more rights as the father of their daughter.

Most tv series would take a topic like this last legal wrangle and stretch it over an entire season, but Queer as Folk is more ambitious; the writers recognize that the resolution of one problem is rarely the end of the story, that muddy consequences can be as dramatically compelling as head-to-head conflict. This aggressive and effective plotting, combined with the show's willingness to explore the complexities of every issue--be it assimilation or the coming out of a celebrity--results in an increasing emotional power as the series steamrolls towards its final episode. Some subplots can be silly (Brian has a ridiculous stud-off with a new hot guy in town), the dialogue can sometimes veer from wit to camp cliches, and the omnipresence of sculpted, muscular physiques is absurd and even a little alienating for some viewers, but Queer as Folk's strengths--the compassion and intelligence of the writers, the commitment and nuance of the acting--make this show a true television landmark and a pleasure to watch. And then, of course, there's all that graphic and lovingly photographed sex. Rosie O'Donnell and Cyndi Lauper make guest appearances, and Sharon Gless (Cagney & Lacey) continues her much-loved performance as Michael's mother, Debbie. --Bret Fetzer

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 5 DVD Box Set has all 13 episodes of the fifth and final season. Queer As Folk is destined to be one of the most controversial and bravest TV shows of its time. The BOX SET includes Bonus features such as: Filmographies, Rosie O'Donnell diary, wrap party reel, deleted scenes, photo gallery, and a Music video of Cyndi Laupers Shine. I have seen all 13 episodes of the final season 5 and it is another great and very emotional season. I am still amazed at how honest this show is on dealing with gay life. Queer As Folk is 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. Queer As Folk has opened the doors for mainstream gay movies like Brokeback Mountain (which received 8 Academy Award Nominations and won 3) and Transamerica. With this season being the final season of Queer As Folk 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 ›

The final season of this groundbreaking clasic may be gone,but the memories and the "thumpa-thumpa" live on.The most intense season yet sees Liberty Avenue and its citizens go through some tough challenges.Ted fears growing old alone,Michael and Ben are Tested in more ways then one,Justin returns from hollywood with bad news,Mel and Lindsay's relationship takes a few turns,Emmett helps an old love,deb gets an admirer in the form of guest Rosie O'Donnell....then there's Brian,who does the unimaginable..for him.Although there are still many questions left unanswered,this is still one of the best final seasons of any show i've seen in some time.DON'T MISS IT!!!!

I can't get enough of queer as folk. I bought all five seasons within a short period of time, and fell in love with all the characters individually. My personal favorites are BRIAN, JUSTIN, and MICHAEL. They are the best in my book.

I've been a huge fan and supporter of the brian and justin relationship from day one. I'd always hoped that they'd be together until the end, and kinda...that did happen. I was thrilled when viewing this season that the idea of brian and justin getting married...I was all for it. I just wished that they would've followed through. Justin...why did u leave for NY? Brian was your chance at happiness. He never changed, and you knew him for his true self from day one. He was always honest with you, and never promised you anything that might in the end break your heart. I was so sad during that last episode...well, for many reasons, but mostly because of brian saying goodbye to justin...and them making love for one last time. I cried...I'll admit it. I've grown with that relationship, and I never wanted it to end. I hope and pray that they make a follow-up little reunion type of thing for these characters, and we see that brian and justin are together, just like they should be. I kinda believe they knew they were the best things for each other, and that no one could ever come close to the relationship they could share with each other. I want to see a show like that come along, and that would make me soo soo happy. Buy all 5 seasons of the show..you defidently won't be disappointed. This show is amazing!!!!!

It is sad to think that there will never again be a new episode of Queer as Folk. This is a series that I thoroughly enjoyed, especially during the first three seasons. I loved the daring approach taken by this show towards gay life and sexuality. I also liked all the carachters, some of which, such as Brian Kinney and Emmet Honeycut have kept me fascinated with this show for the duration, thanks not only to the excellece of the writers, but also to the brilliance of the actors. And I enjoyed the music and the cinematography of this show very much.

Season five is actually better than season four (which I felt was a little of a let down). The sories were sharper in season five and the carachters more interesting. The only episode I did not like was the very last closing show. I was dissapointed not only with the ending (for a brilliant ending of a similar kind of show, see the last episode of Six Feet Under- much more powerful and moving and hopeful) but also with the quality of the episode itself. The whole of the last episode had a limp feel and the wrap up of the five year story arc of the relationship between Justin and Brian was badly handled. As a viewer I felt kind of cheated by the writers, that after putting us through all of the many ups and downs and the drama of this relationship, then wrap it up in the last episode in a way that feels both unsatisfactory and incongrous with the five year story. Oh well, it is just a show. Despite this, the season itself is well worth watching and thoroughly enjoyable.
