I know there are at least 2 of us that watch QAF and I would welcome any chat on this subject; it is close to my heart.

I fell in love with Chris Potter thru season 1 of QAF and then lo and behold I discovered he had shared personal space with our other gorgeous Chris in an ep of SVU (Head, season 5) and of course CM also shared personal space with Mr Gale Harold also.... so I guess it ties it all together!

Did someone mention being tied up with Gale, Chris and CM..... :o

Hi from the other one of the two! *waves*

Ooh, it's kind of like "Six Degrees to Various Really Hot Guys"! :)

Well, you just did, but it sounds pretty good to me! But for the record, I'd prefer Gale, Robert Gant, and our Chris. Yummy! :D

Abyssinia,

Barrie, I thought I was pretty bad too... hope Linny doesn't mind... but I think I waited for at least my 4th post! LOL

But at least its in the Off Topic Area so we can't get into trouble! :lol:

Just quietly, I think Robert Gant is pretty hot too - good bod - but I really liked Chris Potter's character even though he was somewhat smug and a control freak! I especially liked the way he dealt with petulant Brian in the beginning!

Me toooooo! *jumps erratically*

I used to be so much more obsessed with QAF. And you know, since they filmed in Toronto, and I live in Toronto, you'd think that I would have been a good source for spoilers, but I NEVER managed to run into them. Which was strange, cause I was almost a regular fruit fly at Woody's... Oh wait, once I managed to find their trailers and got Scott to sign my bag. After a friend of mine got into an argument with one of the crew members since they were on her front lawn when she was in res...

And I vaguely remember telling a story about almost getting into a car accident with Gale Harold on the old forum. Could you imagine, "umm, excuse me, could I get your insurance info? Pretty please?" *bats eyes*

Still not as good as Chris though... ;)

So Itch ( :lol: ) - it was actually you that blind-sided Brian's jeep in Series 1 and not Justin's dad afterall!!!! Heehhehe

I think Series 1 is still my favourite. I'm watching Series 2 at the moment and it lacks a bit of punch (and I miss Dr David); Series 3 drove me crazy with Ben and his steroids and stuff and Series 4 was very good... and so far I have seen all bar the last 3 eps of Season 5 (waiting patiently.... ;) ) and so far it is brilliant. I cried so much when the bomb went off at Babylon.... don't know the outcome yet; so no spoiling please!!!!

All in all, I love QAF. I just adore the characters, the intimacy of it all, the quirkiness of it and just the passion with which the actors took on the roles. Won't ever be another show quite like it.

You guys make me wish I had showtime. In the meantime though, I thought I would point you in the direction of serialkeller (aka Trasker)'s short but supremely funnyQAF--WTF? (A Photo Essay) which is hilarious even when you have no idea who the characters are.

I'm sure there are spoilers for...something in there. Episode 5.11? Since I am deprived and showtimeless, I really have no idea though.

Ya know what? When you don't have to moderate you can steal a few minutes to post.

The Canucks (and others, perhaps) among us will remember Chris Potter from Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. And one particularly nice underwear episode.

And speaking of underwear (or no underwear) - Matt Battaglia (has a web site but the URL isn't resolving at the moment). My, those years of playing football paid off. But, seriously, his type is not all that uncommon in the gay community. Glad to see they decided to go down that road a bit.

Brian, hello!!!!!!!!!

I had never seen Chris Potter before seeing Series 1 of QAF and although a lot of people didn't like his character - I absolutely fell in love with the guy and with Dr David! I had hopes of him returning and breaking Michael and Ben up! It wasn't to be though...

I have seen pics of Chris in Kung Fu and other things, but we never got the shows here, to my knowledge.

You just answered a question for me though; I wondered whether Matt Battaglia was a "real" football player - he certainly is built like one - and my God, when he disrobed for the underwear campaign.... well, let's just say I got very excited. Hahum.... Lucky Emmett! :D

Brian, do women like Debbie really exist! I want to be her!!!!

Linny, that photo story held somewhat of a spoiler for me, but a welcome one. I for one will be glad to see Brian actually do something worthwhile for Justin after 5 years of nothingness.... unlike the gals in the picture book!

I think they're missing the point that because of the bomb and because of people almost dying, that it obviously made Brian sit and take stock of his shitty/slutty lifestyle and so he finally grew up in a sense, and that was the only way for the writers to take Brian in the closing moments of QAF. I can't wait to see the proposal now!

Thanx for sharing.

:D

awwwww. I've just been rewatching season 1 - and I just sat thru the Prom dance moment.... how ridiculously romantic was that... (to use Brian's words) - but it was so beautiful.

I will have pleasant dreams now! I didn't allow myself to watch the scene that followed... otherwise I'd be having bad dreams. :(

I was in Urban Outfitters the other day (this really is on topic!)--it's a kind of funky/trendy clothes/furnishings/s**t kind of place, a chain--and they had a book of Gay Haiku. Which, naturally, I picked up. It was very funny, and I'll probably buy it eventually, but my favorite (ok, sec ond favorite) was as follows:

Queer As Folk is trash;
Badly written and acted.
I watch every week.

So absolutely f**king true! I admit it. And as for the Brian/Justin thing...on the one hand, I love it: a) it's sweet, and B) I like watching rattled!Brian. It gives him another dimension. On the other hand, I hate it: a) it's too easy, unless there's a big curveball in the last episode (which seems likely, going by the previews), and B) I don't care how much Brian loves Justin. Doing something he's fought against all his life is *not* the way to marital bliss!

And for the record: I WANNA BE DEBBIE!!! I mean, I'm already just about as blunt (though not giving linny a run for her money *grins at linny, whom she admires SO much*), but people don't like me as much. And I wanna be surrounded by beautiful, completely unatainable men, as well! :)

Abyssinia,
Barrie

See Barrie, I don't see this as something Brian would NEVER do at all.

Through all 5 seasons Brian has acted out of character in one way or another. I think his whole life has been building up to this moment somehow.

He's always stepping in to save the day and asks no thanks in return. He has on several occasions done things for both Emm and Teddy that would be totally out of character for Brian; he has forgiven Michael for things he would never forgive anyone else for.

I think Brian learned from the fiasco that was Dr Dave - he seemed to give Ben more of a chance (I suppose it helps that he slept with Ben though... LOL) Making Mikey hate him just so Mikey would choose David over him; it was all for his own good.

I love the relationship between Brian and Debbie - all that resentment but underlying unconditional love that Brian shows no one!

When Brian lost Justin to that fiddler, his life was in ruins (as much as it can be for Brian)

Things started changing for Brian when Brandon came on the scene.

What really nailed it was the bomb and the thought that Brian might actually lose Justin and/or Michael. As Oprah says, "a lightbulb" moment - Brian had his and it made him grow up quick smart and reach out with both hands. I think he has wanted marital bliss his whole adult life (just never thought he could have it) - and now he wants it so badly he can taste it.

I can't wait to see the last 3 eps to see how all of this pans out - but I'm holding out for a happy ending for Brian and Justin (only, can Brian give Michael a quick f... on the eve of his wedding to Justin - just to settle old times once and for all) and can Dr Dave just make an appearance just so I can Chris Potter again.

Brian, do women like Debbie really exist! I want to be her!!!!
God, I hope not :)

Debbie is a fag hag taken to the extreme and she becomes a neatly drawn parody. BTW, I'm not putting down fag hags. although the term has become less PC, the ladies are still dear to my heart.

And on Matt Battaglia (hmmm, the mind boggles). His site is now back up with some updates (he's engaged!) and some new photos. Although I wish these guys would spend a bit of money or find an adoring, capable fan [glancing around, whistling under his breath because he could do it in an hour] and get a decent design. Guess I should be careful; you never know who did it for him.

Okay.. now my two favorite shows are in one board... *EV doing serious happy dance.. luckily no one here can see me...*

QAF is my all time favorite show.. yeah yeah.. its badly written, its unrealistic, it doesn't live up to one expectation of another .. blah blah blah.. but I LOVE it. LOVE IT LOVE IT

I've had the pleasure of meeting all of cast a couple of times and let me just say they are an awesome.

In the states, this coming Sunday will be QAF Series Finale... the end of an era.

'bout time you bloody got here woman!!!! :D

What did everyone think of Brandon? I don't think Brian had much to worry about; Brandon was too pretty - with not much substance! I didn't like Ethan much either; I much prefer Justin with Brian.

Has anyone seen the blooper reel on the DVD set of season 1? It cracks me up.

Brian "you try spending some time with...... talking about cigars and smoking pussy....." :lol: Peter Paige and Scott Lowell go into a skit about smoking pussy after that - hilarious stuff!
