Michael: [last line of the series] So the thumpa-thumpa continues. It always will, no matter what happens, no matter who's President. As Our Lady of Disco, the Divine Miss Gloria Gaynor, has always sung to us, "We will survive."

"We will survive"
27 December 2008 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

For those who have missed the opportunity to watch this series, I have great sympathy. Without spoiling anything, I can safely say that the final episode leaves you with so much mixed emotion. You want to laugh. You want to cry. You feel joy. Your heart breaks. It's like watching your best friend driving off into the sunset. You don't know if you would ever see him again, but you draw happiness from the fact that he is now immortal and you didn't have to watch him die, or become something you wouldn't recognize. A blaze of glory. a shining inspiration. Unforgettable. That's how Queer as Folk will always be remembered. We hope to see a film very soon.
