Very solid offering...

"I'M GOING HOME TO WHACK OFF AND THAT'S THE LAST ANYONE NEEDS TO HEAR ABOUT IT!" ~Michael

This was another fabulous episode of Queer as Folk, and I'm happy to say that despite what I've been hearing about the later seasons, the third season has been really solid so far. The beginning was amazing with the simultaneous occurrence of both Ethan's musical performance and Michael's "performance" for Melanie and Lindsay. Emmett and Ted have trouble settling on a house, but the end of the episode is positively cute for the both of them. Ben and Michael are a different story, though, with Ben exploding in anger at every little thing and of course the scene where Michael discovers Ben shooting himself up with steroids. The song "Barbie Girl" was used in an awesome contrast to the events that were occurring at that time, and the confrontation between Ethan and Brian in which he tells him that there's "nothing noble about being poor" was very well-written and well-acted indeed. The ending, however, really brought a tear to my eye. I can see why Brian is so ruthless sometimes, but other times it's really difficult to forgive him for certain things he does. He's especially sour toward Justin in certain instances, and the way that he treated Justin in the end was just uncalled for. I'm not so sure now that the two of them will ever get back together. I can't wait to see more!
