Editor's NoteBased on the British television series of the same name that became a sensation abroad, Showtime's QUEER AS FOLK quickly became as big a hit in the US as the original was overseas. Focusing on the lives of five gay men in Pittsburgh--Michael, an insecure 29 year-old; Brian, an ad executive who isn't into relationships; Justin, a wide-eyed and innocent 17 year-old; Emmett, a flamboyant jack-of-all-trades; and Ben, an HIV-positive college professor--and their circle of friends, the series has earned both critical praise and scorn for its unflinching look at gay life, love, and sex. Whatever one may think of the show's sexual content, QUEER AS FOLK is an undeniably compelling, funny, moving, and thought-provoking series. This collection presents the entire five-season run of the groundbreaking show.
