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.

5.12 Mr Right (Never Broke and Promise)

Brian and Justin keep barreling towards marriage even as Justin’s career as a painter awaits him in New York. Melanie and Lindsay ask for Brian and Michael’s blessing to take their children out of the country, with Michael agreeing, but Brian disagreeing and then finally agreeing after some pressure from Lindsay.

Drew and Emmett break up after Emmett realizes that Drew needs to fuck around for a while before he will be capable of having a relationship. We meet Ted’s new boyfriend Tad, who immediately starts calling the shots in the relationship.

“Mr Right (Never Broke and Promise) was directed by John Fawcett, his last of three episodes. His first was season 2’s “The Dangers of Sex and Drugs” where Justin becomes a gogo-boy at Babylon and Emmett and George Shickle start their world tour. Loved that episode, and not just because we got a scene of Justin in briefs.

It first aired in the US on July 31st, 2005. It was written by Michael MacLennan, his last of 13 episodes. He wrote two episodes of Peter Paige’s show, The Fosters in season 3.
