As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
Nathan has returned from London to live with his mother Janice and the pair are reconciled. Nathan is still having trouble at school with taunts from homophobes but finally asserts himself. Hazel is concerned that Stuart is too influential where Vince,who has left Cameron, is concerned,especially when they attend Vince's half-sister's wedding and Hazel believes Stuart asks her son for a slow dance only to prove that he is out of the closet. Stuart himself finally outs himself to his parents after his young nephew has discovered that he is gay and tried to blackmail him. His father is less accepting but his mother is much cheered after taking advice from Hazel and Janice. Alexander's father is dying and his mother makes him sign an agreement foregoing any inheritance. He is depressed and takes an over-dose,prompting Stuart to torch her car to Vince's disapproval though he still makes it back for Nathan's birthday party. Vince wins promotion at work,thanks to Hazel and Bernard stitching... Written by

We don't do hammers, or nails, or saws. We do joints and screws, but that's different.

Queers. Because I'm queer. I'm gay. I'm homosexual. I'm a poof, I'm a poofter, I'm a ponce. I'm a bumboy, baddieboy, backside artist, bugger. I'm bent. I am that arsebandit. I lift those shirts. I'm a faggot-ass, fudge-packing, shit-stabbing uphill gardener. I dine at the downstairs restaurant, I dance at the other end of the ballroom. I'm Moses and the parting of the red cheeks. I fuck and I am ...

Can't imagine what went wrong. But it did. Badly!...
It's a shame this rating system doesn't allow for 0 stars - that'd be my first choice. Admittedly, I was not overwhelmingly impressed by Queer As Folk, but it was fun and its ending made more sense to me than QAF2's idiotic finale. If there's a soap cliche that hasn't been borrowed, I couldn't think of one. If there's a coherent storyline, I must have been distracted. If all 30 year olds (never mind gay or otherwise) behaved like these two (as there was no one else in the series but butch Hazel and camp Alex) the world would be in deep trouble. It's supposed to be just a TV show, right? But it encourages random violence, illegal use of weapons, drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, borrowing whole bits from american z-films and internet slash-fiction with no credits due - thankfully. It's bad, worse than the Doctor as far as production values, worse than Coronation Street as far as dialogue & character development. I'm not being bitter. It's just I've rarely been so let down by a TV thing in many, many years. Oh, and I'm a 34 year-old gay man living in Amsterdam, so don't go thinking too badly of bastard homophobic me...
