    UK-2.1 Out of the Closet

    UK-2.1 Out of the Closet

    Nathan is back from London and living with his now divorced mother. Janice Maloney is now cool with Nathan’s sexuality and they even share laughs over Nathan’s campy boyfriend Daz. Stuart and Vince start a threesome, but instead of cutting out the middleman, Vince cuts himself out leaving the trick to Stuart. Later, at Vince’s sister’s wedding, they agree to share a hotel room with the intent of consummating their 16 year fascination with each other. Once again, Vince pulls the plug on it though. Alexander’s father has a stroke and he’s summoned to the hospital by his mother only to find out that she really wants him to sign documents disinheriting him from his wealthy father’s estate.
    “Out of the Closet” was directed by the Bangladeshi director Menhaj Huda.  It first aired in the UK on 15th February, 2000, and that was 11 months after series 1 ended.  Interestingly enough, the US version of the show premiered only 10 months later in December of 2000, which meant it would have been in production while series 2 aired.

    UK-1.7 Thirty

    Vince turns 30 and Stuart throws a birthday party for him, apparently without much help from Cameron, who gives Vince a car for his birthday. Not to be outdone, Stuart gives Vince a much more adored Dr Who K-9 robot.

    As Romey and Lance's fake wedding date approaches, Lisa tries to enlist Stuart in yet another unforgivable act of reporting the scam to the Home Office.

    “Thirty” was directed by Sara Harding, her third of four episodes of Queer as Folk. She also directed 50 episodes of Coronation Street. It first aired in the UK on 6 April, 1999 and it was, of course, written by Russell T Davies.
