If you've ever found yourself watching a spy thiller like James Bond and lusting after someone like Daniel Craig... then Netflix's Q-Force was written just for you! You may find yourself lusting over animated characters like Mary (Sean Hayes), Twink (Matt Rogers), Benji (Gabe Liedman) or straight guys like Agent Buck (David Harbour) if that's your thing. At first blush, "Q-Force" looks like a bunch of stereotypes of LGBTQ characters, but it's truly so much more. When you actually watch an episode, you'll quickly realize that this was a show written for gays by gays. Loaded with in-jokes and turning stereotypes on their heads, "Q-Force" tackles political and social issues in a way that only a show on Netflix could.
I had the exciting chance to speak to Gabe Liedman, who plays Benji and created the show, as well as Matt Rogers, who plays Twink. Both Gabe and Matt are writers on the series that debuts September 2nd on Netflix. It was great to hear about what went into the production of the show. This is an epic adventure years in the making!
I came to the show with a critical eye, but left pleased with a fun-yet-raucous journey through the imaginative minds of the team behind the show. Check out my interviews with Gabe and Matt below. They took over my show on PRIDE Radio Wednesday, September 1st with their latest Q-Force mission: to get everyone to binge the show over and over. It's about time we don't have to THINK about a show we're watching, amirite?
You'll find it hard not to quote this show in your daily conversation. I need you to watch this so when I say "my little butthole went boop"... you don't look at me with that disappointing glare you have.
"Q-Force" stars Sean Hayes, Gary Cole, Matt Rogers, David Harbour, Wanda Sykes, Patti Harrison, Laurie Metcalf, Gabe Liedman and features a roster of guest stars like Stephanie Beatriz and Dan Levy. Don't miss this queer adventure series when all episodes of Season 1 drop on September 2nd on Netflix!
