After watching the first four episodes, I have to admit, it's boring. I want to like it, but it just kind of lays there, flat. Remember what made Queer as Folk so good? It was compelling, edgy, and faced national issues head-on. It was un-apologetic with it's sexual frankness. Looking, well, so far it's more like Snoozing. Having lived in San Francisco, I found gay life in the city to be unlike anywhere else in this country. San Francisco is kind of a vacuum, so maybe that's why the show doesn't ring with many. I think the show would have been more interesting if it were located in a more midwestern city/town, where everyday life for gay men is MUCH different, and more relatable to a great many people. Unless you live, or have lived in San Francisco, it's kind of alienating.
