QAF Episode Titles  
Yes, my insane project to title all the Queer as Folk episodes has been concluded in a burst of afternoon obsession. I am pleased with the results. Some titles feel incredibly apt, some merely convenient, but I don't think any are badly off. A lot of them are taken from movies, e.g., "Love Has Many Faces" is a Lana Turner movie, riffing off Emmett's reference to her--it seemed like it applied well to facets of the plot lines.

Anyway, shows need titles, so that people can talk about episodes, and numbers just aren't mnemonic. It's lame to have no titles, damn it! So, even though it may seem silly and self-important, I'm tossing these out there and hoping they stick. I want them to become memelike in their persuasiveness, fanonlike. Take them, propagate them, post them, use them, own them, spread them like butter--no attribution needed. I'll also put them in my memories under "QAF Love."

Love! Valour! Obsession!

My favorite title is 3-14 "Family Values," cause I love how it twists the idea of Stockwell's campaign around. I'm always excited to see you post stuff about QAF. Actually, haunting your journal caused me to rent QAF season one in the first place, which led (of course) to a huge obsession, and a few days ago, I finally got my own journal so I can do my own babbling about the show. Thanks for leading me to the joys of Brian and Justin!

Oh, goodie. I'm so glad you did this. I hate the numbers. Who can remember numbers? These are all great.

That you love this show so much just gets me all dew-eyed.
