Critic Reviews for Queer as Folk (UK) Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

A brilliantly brief series that came in, rearranged the furniture, splashed the walls with colour and then f---ed off. Punk TV at its most deliciously boisterous and subversive.

Like Boys, the new program is replete with dark humor and stinging dialogue. But Queer As Folk is even more revolutionary.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Davies created a show for gay men to laugh at and feel included by that was daring and addictive enough to ensnare anyone who simply loved good TV.

Series one, in all its filthy, glamorous, Mancunian glory, is a knock-out.

Oct 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It was steamy to say the least, but the narrative was incredibly compelling and original. Following the lives of three gay men...Queer as Folk was revolutionary television--mainly because the characters felt like real people.

One of the astonishing things about Queer As Folk, though, is how unlikeable the characters can be.

Oct 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It ultimately succeeded not because it was the first truly prominent gay drama on the air, but because it was a character-driven show that tackled a lot of ground in a very short time.
