Product Details

In 1999, TV wunderkind Russell T. Davies (who went on to re-imagine and reinvigorate the Dr Who franchise and its various sequels including Torchwood) presented a truly audacious new show that took the United Kingdom by storm. Taking on Manchester's lively gay scene, "Queer as Folk" startled with its aggressive and unapologetic tone and created one of the most maddening TV antiheroes that you're likely to encounter. Telling the story of best friends Stuart (Aiden Gillen), a consummate player, and Vince (Craig Kelly), his loyal sidekick--the narrative was trailblazing in its frankness and presented an in-your-face and visceral experience. Lives were further complicated when Stuart picked up an underage one night stand (Charlie Hunnam) who soon ingratiated himself into the central relationship. Davies' screenplay uses scathing wit to delineate the complicated bonds of friendship and the responsibilities inherent in sticking with pals who present themselves as virtually unlovable.
