Still Queer as Folk

Hosted ByPatrick Randall & Matt Dominguez

A critical review and analysis of Showtime's Queer as Folk presented by two bitchy and sometimes jaded gay guys. Listen in as we take apart the stories, screenplays, characters and aspects of the show that haven't aged well. Nothing is off limits, be it music, costumes, sets, or acting. We're huge fans of the show, but you would probably never know it after listening to Still Queer as Folk. All five seasons are covered, recorded between 2018-2021. Check out the Still Queer as Folk UK podcast for our take on the original.

5.09 Anything in Common

Brian and Michael continue to quarrel over Michael’s new life, ending in Michael calling it quits and moving on from Brian. In a quasi related runner, Ben and Michael come to terms with what it means to publicly fight against Proposition 14. And we meet Jennifer Taylor’s new boyfriend, a hunky science teacher named Tuck who whisks her away on a motorcycle. 

Tiring of fucking everything that moves, Ted’s search for a husband leads him to a Jewish mixer where he meets a hot as fuck urologist who while examine Ted’s penis discovers that Ted isn’t Jewish. Melanie and Lindsay beat the crap out of each other before Melanie appears to force herself on Lindsay. And finally, Drew Boyd comes out on live TV!

“Anything in Common” was directed by Queer as Folk veteran David Wellington, his seventh of eight episodes. He directed season two’s “wherever that dream may lead you.” That was the episode that was musically bookended by the drag king troupe, and it’s also the moment that Michael decided to buy his comic shop. 

It first aired in the US on July 10th, 2005. I was written by Brad Fraser, his seventh of eight episodes. He also produced 14 episodes of the show and was the story editor for another 14 episodes.
