This thread is a continuation of Queer as Folk. Season 2 of Queer As Folk begins on Sunday, January 6 at 10pm on Showtime. There's a lot of hype surrounding the return of Showtime's highest rated series. I've seen stories on CNN.com, and banner ads on every gay-oriented site around. Hopefully they can maintain or increase the level of quality and interest generated in season 1. Season 1 will begin to be available on DVD on Tuesday, January 8. A review is available at DVDFile. Currently the best price available is at Total Action Universe but this could change. Some spoilers for Season 2: I know that Justin lives, is well, and will continue his relationship with Brian. This will be a focus in season 2. Additionally Michael will get a new boyfriend. I saw a news item a while ago regarding the actor who will portray him. I remember that it was a sitcom dad, but don't remember who. If anyone else remembers this news item, or has a link for it, it would be much appreciated. Lastly, they'll be focussing on the supporting cast more in the coming season. Particularly this will be Melanie and Linsday, but also Debbie. I myself can't wait. I'll be posting again Sunday at 11 .
