Enquiring Minds Want To Know

Enquiring Minds Want To Know - Did Aidan Gillen really balk at returning for a second series? What would the show have been like if Donna hadn't left? And was there any truth to the rumour of a spin-off starring Hazel and Bernard? We asked the questions, and Russell T. Davies spilled the beans.

End of the Road

The Final Chapter - Vince gets promoted, Alexander courts death, Nathan realizes that Stuart isn't all that and a bag of, er, crisps, and the King of Canal Street prepares to relinquish his throne. And we all cry -- a lot.

Out of the Closet, Into the Fire

The Beginning Of The End - Stuart gets blackmailed, Vince tries to get promoted, Nathan wastes time with Dazz, and Hazel's looking as orange as Nathan's shirt from episode seven in season one. No, della femina still hasn't forgotten that shirt -- or forgiven, either.

Crimes Of The Heart

Crimes Of The Heart - As the salesman sits at his desk, Stuart revs the engine and they smile at each other, the salesman giving a little wave. Then Stuart drives the Jeep through the showroom window. Yes, really. Bodies fly, papers go in all directions, and when Stuart finally hits the brakes, he sticks his head out of the Jeep and asks in his jolliest manner, "Where do I sign?"

That's What Friends Are For

That's What Friends Are For - Vince is practicing his trademark shocked response because Cameron's gone and ruined the secret of the surprise party that Stuart's planned for his birthday.

Married...With Children

Married…With Children - Alexander asks Vince if he can stay at his place, and Vince tells him that he can, but that he was actually going to stay at Cameron's. Realizing that Alexander doesn't know he's with Cameron, Vince starts to make introductions, but Cameron reminds him that they met at Phil's funeral, and quite charitably tells Vince to sort out Stuart and Alexander, and that he'll just catch up with him the next day.

Constant Craving

Constant Craving - Contrary to what one would have thought, Stuart Jones isn't a big fan of sex for breakfast. Or at least that's what I deduce from him kicking not one, but two naked men out of his flat after his alarm goes off at the beginning of episode five. Who knew?

Death And Remembrance

Death And Remembrance - "That's three," Stuart says. "Three what?" asks Vince. "Three men I've shagged that have died," Stuart answers. "Not a bad ratio, all things considered."

It Happened One Night

It Happened One Night - Alexander, a friend whom Vince and Phil (with baby Alfred in tow) are meeting at the airport, almost defies description. As Vince told Phil, "Alexander's a bit camp, but nice. Mind you, saying he's a bit camp is like saying Hitler's a bit naughty." Indeed.

Unfinished Business

Unfinished Business - Just as the first episode of Queer as Folk ended to the strains of Air's Sexy Boy, so the second one begins, providing very unsubtle (but suitable) background music to vignettes of Nathan at school, Vince in the grocery store where he's a manager, and Stuart in the lobby of a work conference -- all of them ogling whichever men take their fancy.

Meeting People Is Easy

Meeting People Is Easy - The opening shot of this show frames Vince -- who we will all come to love (possibly) and pity (definitely) as the cute, huggable, lonesome loser of Queer as Folk -- facing the camera and saying something forgettable and of little consequence about Babylon, the gay club of choice on Manchester's Canal Street. But at least he's set the scene for us.
