Manage episode 365341927 series 3231288
It's Pride month and what better to kick it off than talking one of me and Mikey's favorite shows from our high school days, Queer as Folk!
While this is the US version that premiered on Showtime, we had never seen anything like this and that's possibly why it has stayed with us over 20 years later. This is based on the UK series which was much shorter, however this version has some incredible characters that you just can't help but fall in love with.
For a trip down memory lane we are discussing only the pilot episode and keep it spoiler free for those who haven't seen it before. We talk our introduction to the show, my stories of traveling to Best Buy to get the box set every season, the incredible soundtracks that are missing from the streaming versions, those steamy sex scenes, and get into what hasn't aged well over the years.
