The one-day-married men find Hunter at their neighbors' rave, rather then studying, Ben considers moving to a quieter quarter.

Great start for the final season!

Episode 501 "This is where I live! This is who I am!" ~Brian

This was seriously a great start for season five, and the ending was just one big shocker. I'm still obsessed with the Rage plot line, and just the thought of a movie being made was, I suppose, just a little too good to be true. Babylon being shut down was a huge shocker, just as much of a shocker as it was to learn that Brian was going to invest his money to reopen the place. I loved the way this season opened. It reminded me so much of the way that season one started, with everyone having a great time at Babylon and things quickly taking turns for the worse in everyone's lives. The contrast from Babylon to Hollywood was really interesting and very well-done. This episode was also host to a plethora of interestingly-shot sequences and had plenty of stuff going on to keep things interesting. I can't believe I'm finally on the last season of Queer as Folk. I just hope this season isn't as bad as what I've been hearing!
