Continuing the original QAF story would be a bad idea... The thing I like about how it ended was that it was open ended and yet wrapped up the story as best it could. It gives you the viewer an opportunity to create their own narrative from there. For that reason a full on revival would be rife with disappointment.Oooh, this is the first I'm hearing of a reboot. It's a shame they just don't continue the original, it had so much potential.
This has reminded me - if you haven't seen it yet, the recently premiered miniseries It's A Sin (by QAF creator Russell T Davies) is one of the best written shows I've watched in years. It's a masterpiece, and absolutely heartbreaking. I'm looking forward to it officially launching in the US this month as it's gaining traction around the world for just how authentic and brilliantly articulated it is. I haven't stopped thinking about it since I watched it last week.
Back on-topic though, I'll have to look into what they're planning for this Looking reboot. I really liked the series.
For me I’m kind of stuck on how they plan on reviving the show with new characters... Will the plot be completely original? Or will they try and tell an new story with plot elements of the original? If it’s an original story why call it QAF? Since gay culture is becoming more homogeneous and accepting what ground is there left to break? Or will it take a similar “nothing to prove” approach that a series like Looking did.
