I shopped around online and Overstocked had the best price of anyone. So far so good with the DVD's they have played well and I haven't found any scratches or glitches but I am only on the second season. Like in other reviews by people the DVD cases do not hold the discs in place well , but I think it is a design flaw ,the boxed set is attractive and the low price well out weights the disc jacket issue. I have enjoyed revisiting the folks on Liberty Ave. it was a time in America when all seemed well and possible ,before stock market crashes , Oil spills and the ever looming heavy hand of conservatism and Family Values slapped most of us back into the closet all in all I'm glad I made the purchase.
Excellent series about gay life in a large metropolitan city. The complete box set of the entire series is very nifty to have around and store. It's a must for gay folks and even straight folks not afraid to see gay life the way it can be at times.
Worth it!...Everyone should watch this series...As long as you can handle a little nudity!
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Identical
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Discs were fine...Plastic casing was broken.
Everything was great except the packaging. That is the only reason I gave this 4 out of 5 stars. Everything plays fine but when I received the box set the DVD's were in the wrong spots and most of them were loose in the casing. The DVD's don't want to stay in place and the cases were poorly put together. I spent about 30 minutes cleaning off each DVD and putting them in their right place in the cases. Still can't beat the price though. I looked around for a great price and Overstock was the best choice. Overall very happy. The shipping did take a while though.

The series grants a view into the lives of people within gay culture, the ups and the downs. It is one of my favorite series of all time. It is honest, even brutally so, and all on Liberty Avenue! If you have ever been in love, scorned by it, or hunted it with any ferocity, then this is your show! As for the product, every season turned out to have discs that had popped free from the case, fortunately nothing was damaged.
I have to say that when I started to look for the complete series of the HBO hit series of Queer as Folk That the prices where very high. I check out several places and when it came down to it overstock had the best price and also the best service. I totally recommend Overstock.com for most of your gift shopping needs. They also have the best deal for shipping in the industry. to say i am very happy with overstock .com is an understatement. TonyB48
The product was received in excellent condition. Overstock.com did a good job in delivering the product. Two of the discs was scratched but a disc scratch repair kit cleared that up with no problem. Queer as Folks is the best show. The characters are to die for. Love, Love, Love it !!!
This isi the first time I have ordered from Overstock.com and I am very impressed. Being a small business owner in the service field, I am acutely aware of the need for excellent customer service and great pricing. I searched for the complete disc set and was amazed at how inexpensive the entire set of discs was at Overstock.com. Some other companies were charging $79 for one season's discs... and there are 5 seasons. I will definitely shop at Overstock.com again! By the way, I never expected to receive my purchase so quickly.. .another bonus! Well done Overstock.com
I didn't watch this series when it was originally on due to the fact I didn't have access to Showtime, but I've now seen it a couple of times because of DVDs. I can say that, for me personally at least, the show was pretty close to imitating my life. I life in Washington, D.C. and saw everything just as depicted on the series. I thought the show did a wonderful, albeit sometimes over-the-top, job of accurately depicting gay life, at least in major metro areas. Much like my own life, I laughed, cried, had drama, said hello to new friends and goodbye to old ones. Through it all though, it helped shape who I am and for that I have no apologies and no regrets. It just shows that you need to live your own life and follow your own path. You only get one life, make it a good one. As for the product, it was a great price, arrived quickly and in perfect working condition.
