THIS FREAKING EPISODE of Queer As Folk is so good! Lindsay’s prudish behavior draws a confession out of Melanie. Ted’s new business, JerkAtWork.net, is up and running, thanks to a friendly favor from Emmett, or should we say Fetch Dixon. Michael goes to work setting up his shop, and his passion for comics catches the eye of a hot professor. Hello, Ben Bruckner!! A trip to the grocery store stirs up trouble for Brian and Justin’s….relationship? Situation? Anyway, it results in two classic QAF scenes, so we are here for it!
Michael MacLennan stops by the diner to dish about Queer As Folk from the writers’ perspecitve. Our conversation begins with a technical discussion about how the episodes came together, and goes on to cover a few key moments and arcs from Season 2 through Season 4. This episode does contain SPOILERS so beware! Check out Michael’s recent project, Tiny Pretty Things on Netflix!!
Heeding the words of the King (Elvis, that is), several members of our gang are on a journey to follow their dreams. In this episode, Ted climbs out of his “black hole of depravity” and decides to pursue a career in the porn industry. Michael eventually stands up for himself, and follows a life-long obsession into a new adventure. Justin’s dream appears to be out of his grasp, but a fellow artist and his ‘non-boyfriend’ (??) help him recapture it. It’s funny, and honest, and emotional, and everything we’ve come to expect from Queer As Folk.
