  1. My life is complete. I miss this show so much!

  2. The clip transcribed, mostly, into English (and yes, the narration is that shallow):

    Cologne in Queer as Folk fever. The stars of the American tv series travelled to the "Rise and Shine"-convention in June 2012. The hype surrounding the actor is still strong even seven years after the series ended.

    Hal Sparks: "I think the success of the series came from how it dealt with more taboo-topics than all others that came before. Life and daily routine of gays, lesbians and bisexuals are frankly depicted."

    Scott Lowell: "It was the first series that didn't, in the words of our director, treat gays as 'clowns and misfits', but as normal people with good and bad features. I think it was the first show that also showed gay life realistically, without holding back. However, the main reason were probably the diverse and interesting characters - normal people, like those you know personally. This may also have contributed to lessening fear of contact towards the gay community."

    There was no fear of contact in café "Morgenstern". Fans and invited guest had the chance to be close to their heroes and learn first-hand what they always wondered. In addition, one or the other policitian was at hand to receive the prominent visitors. But was the convention the only reason for the stars to come to Germany, or was something there something else? "I need a beer." (Scott Lowell)

    Randy Harrison: "The Ludwig museum. I love it, I love contemporary art. They have a great collection there, and I strolled along the Rhine a bit already. And I like German Mettwurst, beer, wine, and good bread."

    But to the celebrities the good German water seemed tasty as well. And moderator and café owner Ralf Morgenstern insisted on serving his guests one or the other Cologne speciality. A successful and interesting evening. The celebration lasted deep into the night.

    The rest of the clip describes what you can see and mentions that 1,000 fans attended the gathering. The woman cast member says she would do a sequel series and the narrator speculates about a movie.

  5. I miss QAF too. Randy Harrison looks great; too bad Gale Harold is absent. Hal Sparks is an eternal hottie too.

  6. Without the strong character of Brian, it's just not the same.

    Still, great to see them together again.

  7. OH! oh... I got all excited to see the cast from the original show, not the US version.

  8. I'm with you on that JimmyD. The original is so much more interesting, so far as I'm concerned.

  9. I hated the 'merican version. The original was SO MUCH BETTER.

  10. Yes, yes, American bad everyhing else good. We get it. NEXT!

  11. "Yes, yes, American bad everyhing else good"

    Yes, yes, when it comes to the US re-making British shows, it IS a trail of fail. The UK version of QAF had the benefit of only having 10 episodes (including the horrible ending of 2.2), whereas the US version dragged out to 83 episodes. There was a LOT of padding in the US version.

    Mmmmm....Scott Lowell.....mmmmmmm.

  12. How much money did the cast make for their appearance at this convention?

    Posted by: abbafemme | Jun 18, 2012 9:52:46 PM


  13. How much were the cast paid to appear at this convention?

    Posted by: abbafemme | Jun 18, 2012 9:53:36 PM


  14. How much were the cast paid to attend this fan convention?

    Posted by: abbafemme | Jun 18, 2012 9:54:28 PM


  15. I know a lot of fans probably would want QAF to return, but how often does something like that actually work?

    But we do need something like it, perhaps with an all-new cast and city.

    While we're on the subject of sequel series, after seven years with nothing new, it's time for a new Star Trek series, with someone boldly gay in the captain's chair.

  16. Randy Harrison looks like he TOTALLY wants to be somewhere else. I always got the impression QAF was more or less just a job for him and his heart belongs to the theater.

  17. Does Hal Sparks age? At all? o-o

    Posted by: ophu | Jun 19, 2012 12:20:31 AM


  18. I have the complete British and American
    versions and THERE IS NO COMPARISON: the
    American version (5 season arc) is VASTLY
    better than the British kick-start effort,
    even Russell Davies says so. Next!

  19. Randy, please reprise Ken in RED.

    Posted by: mikeflower | Jun 19, 2012 8:25:37 AM


  20. @abbafemme. Yes they were paid, as most convention guest stars are. Why do you care how much?

    Posted by: Chris | Jun 19, 2012 11:07:09 AM


  21. Just finished watching this show for the first time a few months ago. Loved it. Glad to see them all together again.

    Posted by: Mikey M | Jun 19, 2012 6:54:29 PM


  22. I'm 85% certain that the guy to the left of Randy is Peter Paige.

    Posted by: lessthan | Jun 19, 2012 8:19:26 PM


  23. And I'd be wrong. I have no idea who that guy was.

    Posted by: lessthan | Jun 19, 2012 8:24:11 PM


  24. WOW I forgot so many things about the show and I never thought I would, sorry but I just really felt the British one is better

    Posted by: Marky | Jun 23, 2012 9:50:21 PM


  25. Robert Gant and Scott Lowell are really starting to age. FAST!
