The Queer As Folk cast reunited!
June 8th, 2018 under Queer As Folk. [ Comments: none ]


For the first time since Queer as Folk ended in 2005, the whole cast got together to talk about how groundbreaking their show was then and still is today. Scott Lowell told Entertainment Weekly, “We stopped making this 90 years ago, and people are still…discovering it for the first time and think it is real.” Then he added, “That this felt, in an odd way like a docudrama. To a world, many people knew nothing about and now they do. Now they are as passionate about those issues as anybody.” Issues like hate crimes, coming out, same-sex marriages, HIV, crystal meth in the gay community and so much more.

These issues felt real because of the way that Brian (Gale Harold), Justin (Randy Harrison) Emmett (Peter Paige), Ted (Lowell), Justin (Randy Harrison), Lindsay (Thea Gill), Melanie (Michelle Clunie), Ben (Rober Gant) Michael (Hal Sparks) and Debbie (Sharon Gless) portrayed each storyline that was given to them. This cast might not have not all been in the same place for 13 years, but they still look as close as they did when they were all spending the night out at Babylon. Of course, that was before the nightclub was blown up.

On that note, I am surprised that this show has not been picked up for a revival because the Babylon explosion was, in some ways, like what happened at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, a hate crime against the LGBTQ community. Not only that, so many topics that they touched on back then are, sadly, relevant again. Plus, CowLip (Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman) are brilliant at expressing important messages through the writing they do for each of their characters.

Plus, I miss watching naked men. When Harold was asked why so many straight women watch the show, he told the interviewer that just like how men like watching two women going at it, so do women like seeing two men have sex. At that moment, I realized why I watched and love this show. It still remains one of my all-time favorite series to this day. Or as Paige puts it, “I often say people came for the queer, but they stayed for the folk.”

It was the first show that was based on an almost all gay cast of characters. Until QAF, there would be a homosexual character on a show, but this one was all about several same-sex couples. It opened the door for some many shows to do the same. Not just because they were the first do it, but because they did it so right. And because the characters did it a lot. Sorry, back to the important things they covered.

Seriously, this is a show that we once again need on our televisions, and it bogs my mind why they are not doing new episodes. C’mon Robert Greenblatt, bring back the baby you only had for a little time on Showtime.

A mini Queer As Folk reunion!
June 27th, 2017 under Queer As Folk. [ Comments: none ]


Over the weekend, Queer As Folk’s Debbie and Michael Novotny were reunited, and Sharon Gless and Hal Sparks still look like the loving mother and son they played on the Showtime drama.

So much so, I do not know why no one has brought the show back for a revival. Seriously, if any show deserves it, it is this one. So much has happened in the LGBTQ community since the show went off the air in 2005, I would love to see how the cast of characters would tackle those issues today. Well that and I really miss the show. Plus, it was eye candy and what girl does not like watching two guys go at it? I know QAF taught me that little lesson.

Seriously though, QAF was much more than sex. It was wonderful writing, great chemistry, excellent acting and show with important messages to get out there. Each week they found a way to tell an interesting story that was also informative. We need more shows like it on television and bringing it back would be a good start. Who is with me?

Four of the greatest women to ever grace TV in one photo!
May 18th, 2017 under Lynda Carter, Mariska Hargitay, Queer As Folk. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday, Women In TV were honored at event and we got an epic photo out of it. Law & Order: SVU’s Olivia Benson posed with Wonder Woman, Cagney and Lacey’s Sgt. Christine Cagney and The Good Wife’s Alicia Florrick aka Mariska Hargitay, Lynda Carter, Sharon Gless and Julianna Margulies. If you throw in Queer As Folk’s Debbie Novotny and ER’s Carol Hathaway, they each represent some of television’s most bad ass actresses for every decade since the ’70s. That is beyond impressive just like their careers. Plus, they are all absolutely gorgeous besides all being phenomenally talented.

Don’t you just love this photo?

A Queer as Folk reunion!
July 22nd, 2016 under Queer As Folk. [ Comments: 1 ]


Robert Gant, Scott Lowell, Gale Harold and Michelle Clunie all came out to the Pantages Theater this week to see Randy Harrison starring in Cabaret and Ben, Ted, Brian, Melanie and Justin look as close as they did when we got to know them on Queer as Folk 15 years ago.
So close, I don’t know why with all the revivals, no one has brought back this show. So much has happened with Gay rights since 2005 and who better to tell that than QAF? What are Showtime, Logo, Netflix and/or Amazon waiting for? This a goldmine they could be sitting on and I would love to see them reunited on the small screen. Who’s with me?
That and they are all still so hot and I want to see them all shirtless again! To paraphrase what Harold once said, just like men like to watch two women going at, women like to watch 2 men get it on, bang a gong! I know QAF taught me that!

Adopt Adoptable!
October 10th, 2014 under Queer As Folk. [ Comments: none ]


Queer As Folk’s Scott Lowell was adopted as a baby and during the turn of the century he decided he wanted to find his birth family. What he found out is that searching for them as an adult is not that easy. So about two years ago he decided that he wanted to make a webseries about that experience called Adoptable. Since he wants control over it, the actor is doing it all by himself. That means he needs money to make his dream a reality, and he is asking you for the dough via IndieGoGo. If you contribute a certain amount of money to the project, then you can even get a spoken line in the series or be listed as an Executive Producer of it. Not a bad deal.
So what is the Adoptable about? Lowell plays Scott Fishman an actor who stars in the hit show, Cops & Bottoms with Jerry O’Connell (Jerry O’Connell). He recently got engaged to Lisa Crane (Emily Swallow) and with her urging he decides find his birth parents. Being an actor, he has the means to make a documentary about his search. That film is the mockumentary that we get to watch in all of the webisodes. It will show off his adventures of trying to find his parents along with the help from intermediary Mary Elizabeths (Sharon Gless). We will have to watch all of webisodes to find out if he actually finds the people who gave him life.
This webseries sounds like something everyone can enjoy, especially people that were adopted and have been through what he has been through. Maybe by telling his story, it will make it easier for adopted adults to find their natural parents. That would be a great accomplishment. But that can only happen with your help, so contribute what you can via IndieGoGo. Let’s make this dream a reality.
