Storyline

Nathan returns from London to live back with Janice. Each is now more understanding of the other and they enjoy laughing at his line in camp boyfriends though Christian is still giving him trouble at school. Vince has broken up with Cameron and is going for promotion at work. Hazel is nonetheless disapproving of the hold that Stuart has on him,especially when they all attend Vince's half-sister's wedding and Stuart gets Vince to do a slow dance with him to prove a point. Alexander also attends. His father is dying following a stroke but his parents cast him out on the discovery that he was gay and he feels there can be no reconciliation. Stuart's young nephew Thomas discovers his gay websites and threatens to out him unless he gives him money. Inevitably Stuart's reaction is to out himself to his now reconciled parents and as wordily as possible like the drama queen he is. His father is not approving and asks him to stay away from an upcoming family gathering. His mother however is ... Written by don @ minifie-1

Nathan Maloney: But you're coming back, though...?
Stuart Allen Jones: What, come back to this? The ghetto: alleyways stinking of piss, beggars in every doorway, straights and students coming to look at the freak show, and all the idiots saving all week, saving their stupid money from their stupid idiot jobs so they can come and shoot their load with some stranger. And just you look after it, this stupid little street. It's the middle of the world. Cos on a street like this, every single night, anyone can meet anyone. And every ...

Can't imagine what went wrong. But it did. Badly!...
15 May 2000 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

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...
