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.

UK-1.8 Punchline

Stuart demolishes a Jeep store after the salesman makes homophobic remarks to him. Lance and Romey’s fake marriage falls apart after Nathan sent incriminating evidence to the Home Office causing Lance to attack a policeman and the Home Office man.

Stuart is rejected by an ex-trick in front of Vince and Cameron at an art gallery. Nathan rescues Stuart from a drinking binge and makes off with the K9 robot dog that Stuart gave Vince for his birthday. After placing it on Vince’s mini and a make up lunch takes place. 

Nathan calls out Christian Hobbs in public, and then moves back home for a few hours before running off to London with Donna.

“Punchline” was directed by Sara Harding, her last of four episodes of Queer as Folk. She also directed 50 episodes of Coronation Street.

It first aired in the UK on 13 April, 1999 and it was, of course, written by Russell T Davies.
