Queer As Folk (2000)

Queer as Folk

Nije me bilo nekoliko dana doma, tako da nisam ništa novo pogledao. Ali ima jedna serija koja je zasigurno napravila prekretnicu u Američkom TV show biznisu, naravno radi se o Queer as folk. O toj seriji se toliko pisalo i govorilo u medijima da je teško bilo šta ovdje napisati , a da nije već rečeno.
U svakom slučaju mislim da ako je niste već gledali skinite barem nekoliko serija pa vidite o čemu se radi.
Zanimljiva je, sexy, prepuna erotike, a priče su iz svakodnevnog modernog gay života. Uz dobru muziku šta će te više.
Serija je rađena u Američko-Kanaskoj produkciji, a bazirana je na istoimenoj seriji u britanskoj produkciji koja je emitovana 199 godine. Svjetlo dana je ugledala 2000. godine. od tada pa do danas je urađeno pet sezona po dvadesetak serija.

The series follows the lives of five gay men living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: Brian, Justin, Michael, Emmett, Ted; a lesbian couple, Lindsay and Melanie; and Michael's mother Debbie. Another main character, Ben, was added in the second season. Due to tax incentives, the series was filmed in Canada, with frequent location filming in Toronto's Church and Wellesley gay village.

The show was noted for its somewhat frank depiction of gay life, as well its' vivid sex scenes. A disclaimer, "Queer as Folk is a celebration of the lives and passions of a group of gay friends. It is not meant to reflect all of gay society" appeared after each episode on Showtime in the U.S. but this disclaimer was not broadcast on Showcase in Canada (instead, the standard Showcase disclaimer "This program contains nudity, sexuality and coarse language — viewer discretion is advised" was broadcast before each airing and after each commercial).

The title appears to make two references. The show comes from a well-known dialect expression from some parts of Northern England, "there's nought [colloquially pronounced 'nowt'] so queer as folk", meaning "there's nothing as weird as people". (The original series was set in Manchester, in North-West England.) It is also a variation on "Queer as Fuck", which Channel 4 had originally called it, before changing it to its more polite form.[1]
