    I recommend not watching this show unless you're into that kind of thing. It's kinda, well... disgusting.

    Dude, with a name like that, what the hell were you guys expecting? Ponies and rainbows?

    I'm glad I don't watch TV in the first place . . ..

    Is it graphic, or two guys waking up in the same bed in the morning with the covers on but you know what happened the night before type of thing? Doesn't really sound like my type of show anyways though. :p

    I watched one episode. I'm a fan of the HBO/Showtime shows. I thought it would be an interesting look into the homosexual scene. I'm open-minded - so I thought. The episode I saw showed a gay guy teching his 17-year-old boyfriend what a rim job is. Never watched it again. In fact, after a few episodes of Family Business, I canceled Showtime all together.

    As a member (nay, LEADER) of the ATOT gay community, I thought I'd just let you know that watching any show on Showtime or HBO or Cinemax = straight porn. It's kinda, well... disgusting.

    Oh, wait, you're saying that I should EXPECT this? Zounds!

    It has a full frontal shot every five minutes, and lots of men's asses, as they're having sex with each other in bed.

    Now you're just telling lies.


    They are rarely in the bed.

    How into it are the sex scenes? If the actors aren't gay to begin with that could be one hell of a stretch (pun intended)... I wonder if they had trouble casting for the show? Doesn't sound like something I'd like.. OTOH what's that show where the gay men teach a straight guy about fashion? I could probably learn a few things about how to dress and such from that one :)

    No offense meant by this, but there's a gay community here at ATOT? :confused:

    I've never actually subscribed to any of those channels. A gay friend of mine has it on DVD and said it was funny.

    I'm afraid to come out as a Christian on ATOT. I have to give you props for coming out about being gay. That takes balls. <insert joke here>

    It is funny... In the same way The Man Show is funny to men. It has a target audience. Gay people are going to think it's funny. I mean, what next, complaining about Lifetime being boring and effiminate?

    A friend watches it and when another friend and I went over to her house, she was watching it. And there was a guy doing another guy on a Washing Machine.

    Consider that ATOT is all about pseudo-political correctness. It's not PC to be a Christian, but it is to be gay. Quite a world we've built around you straight folk. :p

    Well, he didn't say "it's funny if you're gay, but a straight guy probably wouldn't like it", or "It has sex scenes every five minutes". But, oh well.

    What percentage of the population is gay, about 2%? 50% are women (and women do 80% of purchasing), so Lifetime is surely profitable. Queer as Folk has to be funny to non-gays or it'd be financially unfeasible.
