Summary: The Queer As Folk - Definitive Collector's Edition
box set contains all episodes from this dramatic and unprecedented
television series, which first appeared on England's Channel
4 in 1999.
The series, which very honestly tackles the intricate and
complex story of three Manchester gay men and their trials
and relationships, deals with sex explicitly and does not
shy away from controversial subject matter. Fortunately, because
of its beautiful handling, layered storylines, and nuanced,
complicated characters, it was a huge success.
The series follows the lives of Stuart (Aiden Gillen), a
wildly promiscuous, often callous advertising executive, Vince
(Craig Kelly), the overly nice and unintentionally celibate
grocery store manager, and Nathan (Charlie Hunnan), the attractive
and immature 15-year old who falls in love with Stuart and
follows his example. Placing the heterosexual scene entirely
on the periphery, "Queer as Folk" has been a highly important
and incredibly involving step for television.

Queer As Folk: Series 1 is where it all started. Stuart
(Aidan Gillen) has everything: he's rich, handsome, and always
the centre of attention. Although he's quite arrogant, he
also seems to be quite perfect. His best mate Vince (Craig
Kelly) is funny, good-looking and endearing, but unlike Stuart
he has no confidence in himself. Vince, of course, carries
a torch for Stuart, but nothing romantic has happened between
them. They're both in their late-20s, hitting Canal Street
every night and just starting to think about where their lives
may be going. Suddenly, along comes Nathan (Charlie Hunnam),
a young man who has recently come out and parties with a vengeance.
Before long, Nathan has wedged himself into the lives of Stuart
and Vince, changing everything.
