    Game of Thrones in IMAX? That’s something.

  2. Steven says:

    I wish I could go to ATX. Queer As Folk was such an amazing and trailblazing show. Too bad Randy Harrison won’t be there. I’d love to see him and Gale discuss Brian and Justin’s relationship.

    I think that’s dumb. Why the movies? I’m pretty sure some people who LOVES this show is waiting like F-in crazy to see the trailer. Hell I am after binge watching all the episodes and have S3 on dvd and planning on getting S4 I was looking forward to see the trailer on tv!

    No Sharon Gless at QAF reunion? Debbie was my favorite character by a long shot!

    No Randy Harrison or Sharon Gless at the QaF reunion – that’s a bummer! Not that I could go to ATX since I’m in the UK but QaF without Justin or Debbie just isn’t QaF.

    That said, it’s great that they’re recognising the anniversary and that Cowan & Lipman will be alongside the cast.
