Ok this is the cutest show I have seen in a while. I thought the pilot was meh-ish, but I'm LOVING today's episode. :hearts: The two leads have amazing chimestry, and Ellen Barkin was never this good! :lol:

----

I'm adding th other gay-interest comedy too. I mean both need our support. lol

WowWow

Yeah, but I think it's called The New Normal :lol: ;)

Haven't seen more than a promo, yet.

Yes, the little kid is fantastic in it.

I'm delighted to see same sex kisses on NBC primetime again. It'll be interesting to see how CBS handles Partners(the other gay comedy this year)



Yeah, but I think it's called The New Normal :lol: ;)

Ellen is always perfect :hearts:

Oh dear! I fixed the title.:oh:

I'm stunned @ The New Normal. It's so ballsy and that's A-mazing! :hearts: Ellen Barking was so good on the latest episode!!! :lol:

As for "Partners" I want to be supportive but I don't know... :unsure: Did Brandon & Michael kiss at all? What is this 1998? :confused: It pales in comparison to The New Normal.

I was not expecting much after the pilot, but The New Normal turned things around for the better. I hope it's the same for Partners.

I'm not a fan of Partners. The characters have been done, it's still very Ugly Betty for the one guy all over again.

New Normal on the other hand, I think it is BRILLIANT.

My partner and I <3 New Normal. I watched an episode of Partners. I was hoping for more from that show. It doesn't look that good. The gay guy doesn't seem naturally flaming like Jack was.

TNN keeps getting better and better. I'm really glad is was picked up for a full season.
The last scene was a bit cheesy for my taste to be honest, but as whole the episode was pretty good. The fake wedding :lol:

I'm betting this show gets nominated for a Golden Globe.

As much as I like TNN, the whole "shtick" of Nana's homophobia and racism is already getting repetitive.

M2k
Oct 14th, 2012, 07:01 PM
Yeah, I think so too. I mean it's a good show, but at some point Nana has to tone it down a bit. This is my favorite tv show right now though.

Partners, does anyone feel like the wrong gay got the lead part? :confused: I mean no disrespect to Michael Urie, but his character is tolerable only in small doses. I feel like the boyfriend is the most interesting character of the two.

Julian.

^ The boyfriend is so wooden and boring though :sobbing:

That's because he has never been used as part of the main plot until the last episode. It was until the last episode that he had some sort relevance to the show. :oh:

Julian.

^ Yes :lol:
But I think Brandon's acting is pretty wooden :sobbing: I think he is the least funny character out of the 4 :sobbing:

Don't bother continuing with Partners. It will be cancelled any day and replaced with Rules of Engagement.

The New Normal is GOLDEN but is on NBC and is weakening with the ratings. I think NBC knows it is well written and will give it a Season 2 regardless of ratings - fingers crossed.

I have such issues with Ellen Barkin's character here. She's not a fully fleshed out figure. She's a caricature of a bigot.

I had to give up on TNN, which is sad because I like a lot of the actors. I just can't with anything Ryan Murphy is associated with. He is awful. I still remember him telling all the kids on The Glee Project "I don't know how to write for you." Seriously? :rolleyes:

They're all unrealistic stereotypes. In both shows (and even Modern Family), one of the gays has to be the shrill, emotional, femmy one and the other has to be the quiet, neurotic, straight acting one. NeNe's character is just kept around to say sassy black woman stuff periodically.

I don't like how NBC is running these episodes. Halloween episode was a few weeks ago, then the baby episode was a few weeks ago, and this week "we're expecting our child/son".

It has terrible ratings, it will be cancelled for sure anyway so that's the reason.

So I just watched the season finale of TNN (I'm assuming it was the finale as there were two episodes to watch - though I don't know why they didn't just make a 40 minute special in one) anyway basically everything planned out like the story stated. I hate to say it, but I'm sure this won't continue for another season :sobbing: I mean it wasn't my favourite show ever, the storylines were a little haphazard and too easily solved. But yeh that's my reaction
