‘Queer as Folk’: The provocative series comes to DVD.

When Queer As Folk premiered way back in 2000, it scandalized couch potatoes with its raw depiction of gay life—and lots of gay sex. The show, about a tight group of friends in Pittsburgh, never let up. For five seasons, Queer As Folk told sexy, politically provocative stories: Brian and Lindsay, both gay, have a kid together; Ted starts an Internet porn business; Michael marries HIV-positive Ben, then they adopt a teenage male prostitute. The cool thing is that all this actually seems normal. Pick up the entire groundbreaking series on DVD.
