Did You Know?


[first lines]
Michael Novotny: [voice over narration] The thing you need to know is, it's all about sex. It's true. In fact, they say men think about sex every twenty eight seconds. Of course, that's straight men. With gay men, it's every nine. You can be at the supermarket or the laundromat or buying a fabulous shirt, when suddenly you find yourself checking out some hot guy, hotter than the one you saw last weekend, or went home with the night before.

Nice Transition
7 December 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

"His eyes were closed, his mouth was open, in a sort of smile, like he was in another place, a beautiful place, and that place was me." ~Justin

I thought that episode 2 of Queer as Folk was a great transition into some of the deeper, more heart-wrenching moments of Queer as Folk, and it was heavy on the humor. I really enjoyed the introduction of the whole Michael/Tracy problem and how awkward things are at his job. Justin's pursuit of Brian just further proved how lovable of a character Brian really is. You start to notice some of the show's little quirks and it becomes all the better. My favorite scene, without a doubt, in the second episode was when Michael is lying in the bed with the magazine and has the flashback. I also loved all of the dialogue and interactions between Justin and Brian, and Brian's little speech was just a perfect portrayal of his character. Overall, a very powerful episode that better conveyed the tone of the show than the pilot.
