How are slash fans not constantly reblogging Queer as Folk? I mean, Brian/Justin exists! This should be celebrated daily, with parades and musicals! At the very least, there should be gif sets…
Watching Paris is Burning for the 5th time made me cry (VENUS!! DORIAN!! HOUSE OF LABEIJA!!) for the fifth time, so I’m watching Queer as Folk, season 3.
I’m going to cry with happiness now, goddammit.
Oh, wait. Season 3 has Hunter moments and Stockwell angst.
(quick! Brian and Justin! Make out and make up!! Remind me why I ignore seasons 4&5!!)
With the aerial guy and the lasers - this club reminded me so much of Babylon. I kept expecting to see Brian and Justin dancing to the thumpa thumpa in the background.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Brian Kinney and Justin Taylor.
If you haven’t read bdeviled’s Fix-It fic/Season 6 fic A Love That Will Never Grow Old, you should.
Switzerland does underwear ads RIGHT.
This was Brian Kinney’s idea.
I’ve decided I’m fine with swapping genders in the new version (which I may or may not -most likely not- actually watch) but what upsets me is that it’s the sidekick who has been genderswapped. Can we not have a female Sherlock? That’s never been done before - Bones notwithstanding - and with Lucy Liu, a WOC and HBIC, you could totally make that work. I mean, look at this fine example of badassery:
A female Sherlock might justify CBS riding the Beeb’s coattails on this Sherlock explosion because they would be doing something completely different, but this way? It seems like just another example where the woman will play second banana to some brilliant man who runs circles around her while she stares in awe:
Castle (love it, but come on)
House (w/Cuddy and Wilson)
Psych (w/Gus and Juliet)
Lie to Me (double grrr)
Big Bang Theory (in its own way)
A Gifted Man (w/ his assistant and dead ex-wife’s ghost)
Leverage (goddamn Nate Ford)
Also, when Sherlock and Joan - ugh - fall in love, which they will, it will only send the message that Sherlock and John could only ever be together if one of them was a woman because they’re ~heterosexuals~. What-the-fuck-ever.
Let’s just Ignore the complexity of their co-dependent, same-sex, platonic/romantic/life-long partnership and instead reduce it to the inevitable 3-seasons-till-the-kiss no stakes angst that permeates prime time television.
This could have been so cool! Fucking CBS…
(I’d also like to take this opportunity to remind people of Arrested Development, Pushing Daisies, Community, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, the Stargate series (Canadian-American), due South (also Canadian-American originally), Southland, Better Off Ted, Dead Like Me, Dexter, Six Feet Under, Firefly, Friends, So You Think You Can Dance, and Generation Kill.
Stop saying American TV is shit! We have great shows, but we have TONS of shows. Some of them are bound to be shitty. That doesn’t mean LA is where TV goes to die, for Christ’s sake.
Let me also remind you of this:
Sometimes remakes can turn out fucking awesome. For the first three seasons, anyway.
