When Michael gets to Brian's loft, his shirt is yellow and his tie is brown. As he walks into the loft, his shirt is white with a green tie. It changes back to the original as he walks with Brian and remains the same when they hug. When Brian pulls away, the shirt goes back to white with green tie briefly and for the rest of the scene it's back to the original. See more »

Quotes

[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.

A phenomenally superb First Episode

"So, are you coming or going? Or coming and then going? Or coming and staying?" ~Brian

While I may have never seen the UK version of Queer as Folk, this first episode of the US version showed incredible promise and loads of foreshadowing. This pilot was simply fantastic, outrageous, and brilliant. I loved every minute of the budding relationship between Justin and Brian, and the whole Michael and Brian relationship is a very interesting one at that. The sex scenes and the writing are simply out of this world, and as the episode comes to a close, you are only left wanting more. Hal Sparks was a perfect fit as the dorky, sensitive and lovable as Michael, but I don't think that actors come more perfectly gorgeous or amazing as Gale Harold, who plays Brian. His performance as the cynical yet lovable Brian is really something special. This premier really proves that this show has something special.
