Last Call For Queer As Folk
Five years after the groundbreaking Showtime series, Queer As Folk began, it is ending. Sunday, May 22, 10 p.m. is the premiere of Queer as Folk’s season five – it’s last. I was always a fan of the show for its subject matter, realness, nudity and complete disregard for PC. The show never featured any minority characters – a drawback I was willing to overlook. If you’ve never seen this series, it is a true eye-popping-must-see. Season 1-4 are now on DVD.
