5.0 out of 5 stars Queer as folk series 4 . Region 1 dvd 27 Dec 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Having seen all previous 3 series of the american show and both the british series, i have very high expectations when a new series starts. The fourth series of Queer as folk does not disappoint, it continues to push the boundaries wherever possible,Brian (one of the principal characters, brilliantly played by Gale Harold)continues to live life to the full even when something really life changing happens mid way through the series. His character does not seem to grow as much as some of the others namely Ted(Scott Lowell) and Emmet(Peter Paige), but he still remains the most enigmatic of all the characters. If you've enjoyed all the other series this is a must have dvd.The extras on this dvd were the most disappointing to date, and the packaging was not as good as with previous series, but that should not detract from the fact that this drama series is still one of the best of it,s kind. Mostly thanks to the great cast that was assembled in the first series and has stayed with it through to the end . Something that does not happen very often. The affection they have for each other and their characters shines through.

3.0 out of 5 stars Diminishing returns 19 July 2007
By KJ
Format:DVD
I love this series but it is now losing it's impetus, recyling Ted as an adictive personality only entertains so many times. That said it is raunchy by US standards and the actors still convince but you can tell the straight ones - they don't really know what to do with their hands in a clinch! Five stars for the excellent Sharon Gless.

Not surprised season 5 is the last but I will stay loyal

5.0 out of 5 stars Queer As Folk Season 4 DVD set is another great addition! 11 Jan 2005
By Porfie Medina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
QUEER AS FOLK is still one of the most amazing TV Shows ever and is a landmark as the show for the new millennium. This New Queer As Folk Season 4 DVD Box Set has all 14 episodes of the fourth season which still happens to be one of the most controversial and bravest series on television today. The BOX SET includes Bonus features such as: Behind-the-scenes with Peter Paige's directorial debut; Sneak peek at Michelle Clunie and Gale harold's latest movie; Behind the Babylon tour; Wardrobe closet; Photo gallery; Biographies; plus Previews and promotions. I have seen all 14 episodes of Season 4 and it is another great and very emotional season. Like before I am a little upset that this season is very short (like season 3) when compared to season 1 and 2. Either way season 4 is still a good season. I am still amazed at how honest this show is on dealing with gay life. Queer As Folk ia about the life of a group of gay guys and a lesbian couple living in Pittsburgh. Queer As Folk makes no apologies and thats what is so great about this series. From the graphic sex scenes to the drama of dealing with the prejudice that still haunts America, this show is so brave and I give Showtime a big thumbs up for having the balls to take on such a big risk as Queer As Folk. This show has some issues that are far more real for some than others. This is not a show just for gay people, but for ALL people. It deals with human emotion and thats something that we can all relate to whether we be straight, gay, bisexual, black, white, brown or in between. With season 5 rumored to be the final season I encourage you all to enjoy this great show because very few shows can touch your heart yet push the limit as far as this show has. I encourage anyone who has a open mind and a open heart to BUY this amazing DVD collection as it will inspire you and if nothing else open your mind to a lifestyle not as uncommon as you may think. Watch more than one episode before you judge this amazing series. I would just like to say Queer As Folk Season 1 and 2 and 3 are also great to own. I will be in line when they release Season 4 of Queer As Folk on DVD in April 2005

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Season Ever 8 July 2005
By Diaspora Chic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This was a good season for the characters. Ted, who was considered the wallflower, started becoming a stronger person through each episode. He kicked his drug addiction, dropped those druggies, renewed his friendship with the gang, and gained a job in Brian's new company Kinetic.

I was also glad that Cowlip decided to focus more on Michael and Ben's relationship. The previous season showed less of them and too much of Brian and Justin whose relationship is an "open door policy". In the wake of presidential elections, gay marriages caused a furor between "family value" groups and the GLBT community. Cowlip had to step up to the plate on Michael and Ben showing them tackle parenting Hunter, a street kid who was forced to do tricks to feed his mother's drug habit, and resolving relationship conflicts.

I was sorry to see Victor pass on. He was just life on his own with his new partner and getting out from under Debbie's grasp. He is the mirror of the past and the future of gay men. He survived amidst the politics of sexuality and civil rights. His extravagant lifestyle forced him to lay low just as he was getting himself back on track (working with Emmett and his newfound love), he had to die. I thought that was a blow, but it was also the beginning of the end of the series.

The relationship between Melanie and Lindsay has experienced highs and lows, but it takes another turn. Melanie, carrying a child, tries to juggle a career and maintain the household. They both dote very much on Gus.

Debbie, Michael's mother, is always full of mouth. She and Horvath get back together. Good. She and Emmett share a house since both of them can't live alone. Speaking of which, Emmett can never live by himself. He lived with Michael; then he lived with Ted. But he's always enjoyable to watch. His business is doing well but he tanks in the relationship. He gets himself involved with a football player who is engaged to be married. Oh what a tangled web we weave!

Let's not forget Brian and Justin. Although I get tired of seeing them in their sexual escapades, which is what fans love, I am glad that they didn't try to watershed Brian too much. He wanted to get more involved in his son's life which is touching. Seeing Justin negotiate a deal on the Rage movie proved very much that he is able to make it on his own without Brian. But will both of them ever decide to be monogamous?

Relatively new to the series, I see that the show does exemplify the gay culture socially, politically, and economically.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for content...1 star for packaging... 1 Aug 2005
By Anthony - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I'm sure as most you have read in the previous comments, the packaging to this season is nowhere NEAR as good as the previous seasons. That's extremely true. The packaging is VERY fragile and basically four large DVD covers in a paper-thin box. The other seasons came with more bonus features, more thought behind the look of the boxes, and a lot more thought in general. Some have speculated that Showtime is setting aside the money that was saved from this season's box set so that the fifth (and final) DVD would be much more extravagant and worth the money.

The content (excluding bonus features) is absolutely amazing. The shows are great, the plot is fantastic, and the characters are as real and unpredictable as everyday life. So if you love the show, buy the set, it'll be worth it. Don't get it for the packaging or the non-existent bonus features, get it for what the box set is all about this season, the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch up NOW 17 Feb 2005
By Dustin C. Holden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As an avid view of the show, I urge anyone to at least RENT this series on DVD! This is such a good show. The first couple of seasons are really hard for people to get past because of the "graphic" sex scenes (I only use quotations because, to me, now they aren't so graphic). As the program has continued on and the characters have aged, the sex has died down (thus ending the shock-factor to draw in audiences), and the storylines have matured.

You can honestly look at these characters and relate them to everyday people in your life. They have such emotion and depth to them that the crazy situations that they continuously find themselves in start to become believable.

Don't get me wrong, this is a nighttime soap opera with gay characters, but it's not cheesy or fashion-centered. Even though it is highly unlikely that a group of friends would go through all of the things this group does, you don't feel as if it is too fake while watching. Actually, many of the plotlines are funny--even if only for an episode.

The point of the program is to show that love and friendship is universal--no matter what your orientation. Give it a chance, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars QAF Slips Down a Notch This Season 4 May 2005
By A. Minutella - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
After three great, innovative seasons featuring some terrific writing and acting, QAF in its 4th season is starting to show some rust on its hinges. In its attempt to be more thoughtful and mature, it's also zapped the life out of such major firecrackers as Brian and Debbie. The plot lines in this season are borderline ridiculous: the "Rage" Hollywood drama is so left field its hardly believable; the Melanie court battle goes nowhere; the breakup of Melanie and Lindsay over Lindsay's affair makes no sense since Melanie had previously cheated on her in season 2; Brian's cancer is handled so melodramatically it literally zaps the life out of the character; and the resolution between Emmett and Ted is undernourished to say the least, and very unsatisfying. The edginess and anything-can-happen vibe of the first three seasons is mostly absent in this season, an unfortunate turn for a once-fabulous series. However, the acting remains top notch (with the exception of Robert Gant who emotes with bug eyed indifference) and there's hope that the final season will deliver the goods. Let's keep our fingers crossed for season 5.
