Queer As Folk on LOGO

Since the writer’s strike is still going strong and our normal fave shows are still on vacation. Now is the perfect time to catch something new from the beginning. Admit it, many of the new reality shows are lacking in quality.….I caught myself watching the Miss America Reality Checked last night. Never fear, I have a suggestion for your viewing pleasure.

I don’t know how many of you get the LOGO channel (CBS’s GLBTG station) but tonight they will start airing “Queer as Folk” from the beginning. It is going to be on Monday –Friday at 11pm.

Mind you this is really the PG 13 version of show. It originally aired for five seasons on Showtime in its unedited glory. They have bleeped out the bad language and deleted all the sex scenes. It is still worth every minute of watching.

If you aren’t normally interested in gay subject matter, please don’t let that keep you from tuning in. Queer is one of my all time favorite shows. It is set in Pittsburg and follows the lives and relationships of a group of friends that are Gay/Lesbian and/or HIV positive. The show can be very intense and yet light hearted as well. The characters and their story lines are so well written. You won’t be sorry you’ve given this drama a chance.
