Do you think Queer as folk will get remade?

Isn't it successful enough to be made into a movie or to have another show based on it?

No hon, let it go, it was a ridiculous show to begin with.

by Anonymousreply 211/04/2013

It has already.

Isn't the original British?

by Anonymousreply 311/04/2013

The very basic 'concept' of Queer as Folk is "narcissistic gay man dates younger twink and hangs out in bars all the time." - On that loose basis, yes, it probably will be remade again. If it hasn't already been.

It already was. The American/Canadian verison we all know and love (or hate) IS a remake--of the British version.

The show has been off the air since 2005. I would say no. The time to do it has passed. But you never know. Dallas got a reboot being off the air 20 years. It would have to have a new cast of actors. What about that new gay themed show coming on hbo?

get treated for ocd, op

I'm a gay man who actually did like the show for the most part, but it should not get remade. As others have pointed out it already was made into an American version from the British original. It was enough. The whole idea of it was how "groundbreaking" it was for TV at the time. All these years later, and after two versions, it wouldn't be that novel for TV any more.

Time to have another original gay-themed show IMHO.

I would love to see a reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, although these days it might be Straight Eye for the Queer Guy.

It WAS a remake, OP.

by Anonymousreply 1011/04/2013

hey [9], I like your twist on it --- the first half of the show is gays helping straight dudes with stuff, and then the second half is the straight guys helping out the gays with talents that they are lacking... hmm maybe 5 straight guys and 5 gay guys ---- then they break off into 2 man teams and there is a competition at the end....

I'm sorry, OP. But Gale Harold doesn't know who you are, and probably never will.

You've got to move on.

How about "The Brian Diaries," where an 18-year-old Brian Kinney enters Penn State as a freshman?

Not to disparage the mentally handicapped, I can't tell whether op is kidding, or retarded.

It totally needs to be remade... as a TELENOVELA!

HBO is filming the remake now. Set in San Francisco.

by Anonymousreply 1611/04/2013

it isn't a remake is a different show.

by Anonymousreply 1711/04/2013

The show is hard to watch now. It's so dated. OP, why haven't you moved on to stan a new gay "pairing" like the rest of the QAF fraufans.

R17, doesn't understand the concept of sarcasm.

r16/r19 doesn't have the ability to write sarcasm

by Anonymousreply 2011/05/2013

2005 - it's time to let it go OP. The two main actors have tried. As long as people(fraus) continue to pay for their rehashed memories in the hopes that they catch a look or a touch that confirms that they were fucking, they will turn up. Are we going to be talking about this when Harold is 50?

by Anonymousreply 2111/05/2013

QAF guys going through midlife crisis. That could be an entertaining show. God knows most of QAF cast needs a job.

Don't think I'm up for an aging Brian trying to pull teenage boys while a pouting nearly 40 year old Justin watches

They could call it "Queer Ass Folk".

It's not an "ancient queen," R26. That would be tolerable. It's all the worst "F" words you can think of rolled into one relentless troll.

most gay-themed television is crap anyway, so sure, why not a remake?

by Anonymousreply 2911/05/2013

Now this is a thread that should be closed down. Nobody the fuck needs a remake of Queer as Folk. This is not Hollywood! Queer as Folk is what it was.

QAF is now available for instant watching on Netflix.

by Anonymousreply 3102/09/2014

Thanks, r31!

by Anonymousreply 3202/09/2014

Rewatching on Netflix. Tell me, what aspects of this show didn't you like or what didn't seem realistic?

by Anonymousreply 3302/10/2014

You're welcome, r32.

by Anonymousreply 3402/10/2014

Where did QAF go wrong? I think season 3.

by Anonymousreply 3506/18/2014

I wished they would, or at least do a movie giving us an update on the characters. I loved the show and I am a gay man and loved it. While I was married to a woman we both watched it together and she loved it too. I have found a lot of straight women loved the show too.

by Anonymousreply 3606/30/2014

To the one asking where it went wrong? I don't think it ever did. There was a lot of tension on set from what I gather and Randy (Justin) didn't want to return for season 6 and gale (brian)said if randy didn't come back neither would he, (just what I heard). Maybe egos got too large for some of them?

by Anonymousreply 3706/30/2014

From season 3 onwards it was shit. Even gh said the uk version was better

by Anonymousreply 3806/30/2014

Some segments of the DL were closed, including about Gale Harold, so let's continue to talk about our idols Gale Harold and Randy Harrison here. I wonder who knows about the career of the two currently.

by Anonymousreply 3911/07/2014

I know that the new movie will come out of Randy Harrison. Already have pictures of Sam and Julia.As images show just how this boy is talented.

I'd like to see an adult TV drama about gays who aren't promiscuous narcissists.
