Still Queer as Folk UK

Hosted ByPatrick Randall & Matt Dominguez

After recording 88 episodes of the US version of Queer as Folk, Patrick and Matt turn their attention to the original. The masterpiece that started it all. In Still Queer as Folk UK, your favorite (?) bitchy and sometimes catty gay guys give a critical analysis of one of the best examples of episodic gay fiction ever televised. Stay tuned after we cover all 10 episodes for a special US vs UK edition!

UK-1.1 Thursday

On a night out clubbing, Stuart picks up 15-year-old Nathan on the street, and Vince is stalked home by a muscle daddy that turns out to be…just a daddy. Stuart and Nathan are naked in bed when they get the call that Stuart’s lesbian friend Lisa has given birth to their child. Stuart and Vince drop young Nathan off at school and we’re given some foreshadowing that the random one night stand has several more nights left in it. 

 It first aired in the UK on February 23rd, 1999. “Thursday” was directed by Charles McDougall. He directed the first four episodes of the show, and went on to direct such notable shows as Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives, Big Love, The Tudors, The Office, and House of Cards.

Queer as Folk UK was written by Russell T Davies. He created and wrote shows like Torchwood, and the queer trilogy of shows Tofu, Cucumber, and Banana. HIs biggest claim to fame is the reboot of Dr Who in 2005, which became the most popular incarnation of the series.
