Let's try and predict the upcoming episode of QaF as penned by Roxane Gay

Yes, you read it right, apparently our very own DL-fave has written one of the episodes of the rebooted Queer as Folk! And she doesn't want to hear your opinions about the show in anyway! No seriously, all day she was barking at people online making comments about the show:

"Do you think I don't know this? I wrote an episode!"

"If you bothered to read the article, you would SEE the new cast!"

etc, but even she must've realised how nasty she was being because she's sadly deleted her outbursts and I can't post them here.

But onto more fun topics: what do we think an episode of Queer as Folk as written by Ms Gay will involve? Shall we have a go at plotting it ourselves and see how close we get to the truth?

They will all have bad eyebrows.

Any women in the show will be traumatised by men wearing shorts in cold weather

Everyone will be EXHAUSTED.

R3 They should all go for a walk.

Classic Roxane dialogue, R4:

Guy #1: Hey, why don't we go for a walk?

Guy #2: Fix your eyebrows!

Cue Roxane sitting back, chuckling to herself after writing such a zinger!

There will be a buffet of Ding Dongs and Devil Dogs.

Copious mentions of "Queen Beyoncé".

Who is she? If she were so honest she’d talk about only being gay because she can’t get a man.

Someone will say, exasperated: "I KNOW that! Do you think I didn't know that?"

Fatphobia will be a plot point.

And so much exhaustion.

Lots of dialogue spoken with sighs and full of tiredness.

Someone will give a speech where they DO THE WORK of unpacking their generational trauma and then have to take a 72-hr nap to recover from their exhaustion.

There's going to be some clapping and some clapping back.

And lots of SMH-ing.

There'll be no actual action. For example, unlike in the original where the guys would get together to rally to fight against homophobia, Roxane's characters will sit around, complaining about everything, but doing nothing to help.

This would be a fun drinking game, take a shot every time a "Roxane-ism" is used, like: "It's not my job to educate you!"

Seriously, if that line turns up, I will piss myself. I wasn't going to watch the reboot, but I may have to watch her episode, at least.
