Editorial Reviews

They're still out and proud, and in their second season the boys (and girls) of Queer as Folk continued to break ground as the most gay-friendly show on television (sorry, Will and Grace). Some plot lines were a little over the top, others truly heartfelt, but they were never less than entertaining, even during their All My Children moments. Season two opened in the aftermath of the gay-bashing of Justin (Randy Harrison), the young artist who wondered if he'd ever be able to paint or draw again, and went on to face a variety of issues and plotlines as diverse as its characters. Some were timely (Michael negotiating a relationship with new HIV-positive boyfriend Ben), some romantic (lesbians Lindsay and Melanie tying the knot), some new to the show (Emmett embarks on a relationship with a--gasp!--older gentleman), and some, well, far-fetched (how many of you had to wrestle, like Ted did, with starting your own pornographic web site?).

While the writing tended to flail about a bit, thankfully coalescing by the season's end, the show continued to be anchored by stellar actors, especially Peter Paige's Emmett, who grew the most during the second season; Michelle Clunie's Melanie, the alternately wry and sweet lesbian who became the show's secret weapon; and, as always, Gale Harold's Brian, the lothario with a heart of tarnished gold. Frustrating, fascinating, exasperating one moment and charming the next, Brian perfectly summed up the guilty pleasures of Queer as Folk, where humanity peeks out every now and then from behind the curtain of fabulous comedy and drama. --Mark Englehart

Product Description

The lives and loves of several devastatingly attractive young gay men continue to be chronicled in candid detail during the second season of this pioneering series. Although it bears the same title as its British forerunner, this stateside version is as homegrown as Pittsburgh, where the action-amorous and otherwise-occurs. Each episode is densely plotted and definitely not for those who favor sanitized dialogue and characters stuck on the straight and narrow. 20 hours on 6 DVDs.

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 2 DVD Box Set has all 20 episodes of the second season of one of the most controversial and bravest series on television today. The BOX SET includes Bonus features such as: behind the scenes outtakes, deleted scenes, special edition episodes, a Photo Gallery, DVD rom extras, and much more. Queer As Folk shows the life of a group of gay guys and a lesbian couple living in Pittsburgh. I feel the first season of QUEER AS FOLK is better, but this second season is very good as well and shows the growth of the characters. I have seen all 20 episodes of Season 2 and it is slower paced than the first season, and I sometimes find myself looking at my watch which rarely ever happened with season 1. I am still amazed at how honest this show is on dealing with gay life. 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 we can all relate to whether we be straight, gay, bisexual, black, white, brown or in between. I have since signed up for Showtime just for this show. 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. I will be in line when they release Season 2 of Queer As Folk on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give Me More! September 2, 2002
Yes QAF is unique because it is a gay ensemble show but what really makes it unique is the intelligence, its wit and its' true to life form. As far as I am concerned QAF is a remedy to all the nighttime ensemble soaps that are and were on TV. It has a wit that only those sextarians on Friends could only dream of. There is none of the unrealistic pretentious dialogue that riddles Dawsons Creek (whose teenagers speak like PHD candidates). It has achieved the slice of life that Melrose Place originally aimed for but never achieved. It has an earthiness that Beveryly Hills 90210 could never reach for. QAF is one out of my 3 favorite shows currently on TV.
I have to admit that season 2 was not quite as good as season 1. It seems as if for the first half of the season they tried to make it light (a la Friends). But most of the time I found that it fell very flat. I guess that the creators found that QAF- light was not working and they shifted back to being serious mid season.

Also this season was way too slow and drawn out. It lacked the frenetic pace of season one. And many of the storylines could have been summed up in two episodes. Namely Brian and Justin's relationship which did not have to take 20 episodes to come to its inevitable conclusion. But besides that I still love the way that QAF tackle the issues of life in a very realistic way. Not in a wishful thinking kind of way. But in a way that says this is life.
Some of the highlights from this season.:
Lindsay (let's all get along) finally standing up to her parents. I loved the way the scene was handled. Many other creators would have used the Bull in the China shop method by making Lindsay's reaction to her parents flippant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile continuation of an essential TV drama April 16, 2003

(USA - 2002)

Aspect ratio: 1.78:1
TV soundtrack: Stereo

Following the violent assault which closed Season One, Brian (Gale Harold) takes Justin (Randy Harrison) into his home, where they develop a passionate - but open - relationship. Michael (Hal Sparks) falls in love with a hunky college professor (Robert Gant) who turns out to be HIV positive, leading to conflict with Michael's worried mom Debbie (Sharon Gless). Elsewhere, Melanie (Michelle Clunie) and Lindsay (Thea Gill) are troubled by a ghost from Mel's past, a vibrant free spirit named Leda (Nancy Anne Sakovich) who insinuates herself into their relationship in an unexpected way. Emmett (Peter Paige) falls in love with an elderly millionaire (Bruce Gray), and eternal wallflower Ted (Scott Lowell) finds success as an Internet porn baron! Then, sexy young violinist Ethan Gold (Fabrizio Filippo) enters the fray, turning Justin's head in a manner which has far-reaching consequences for all concerned...

Having exhausted plotlines from the original British TV series, the second season of Showtime's "Queer as Folk" strives to establish its own identity, and largely succeeds on its own terms. Despite the grim storyline surrounding Justin's recovery, the tone of the series is considerably lighter this time around, with an emphasis on character-based comedy and fruity one-liners, many of which appear to have strayed from a particularly filthy 'Carry On' movie! Comedy aside, however, the writers make room for a number of important social issues, including HIV and AIDS, barebacking, pornography, and the gay community's apparent indifference following the death of a young man who was killed by a stranger he picked up in a nightclub.
