The New Normal. The Godparent Trap.
You stare at Jesus through high school, that guy was ripped." Last week, we were deprived a New Norms for the debates. Don't worry, I won't bore you with any debate commentary but I think Romney and Obama would have rather watched New Norms than themselves, as I certainly did. There's nothing I hate more than politics getting in the way of my TV lineup. Election-schmlection, give me TV shows! Last night everyone on the New Norms suffered a mini crisis of faith. Bryan & David literally tried to find God and Godparents while Shania & Goldie started to question their faith in their new found relationship with "the boys." Kinda ironic that instead of watching the more Presidential debates that can be preachy as hell, we were given a dose of New Norms about religion. Let's do it.
Bryan & David
"I'm still jealous of your party abs."
I'm happy to say that Bryan and David are hitting a sweet spot. Gone is the total ridiculous over the top drama that Bryan was known to bring and, more importantly, gone is the boring snoozefest worrywart crap that David tended towards. All that junk has been carefully stripped down. We finally know these characters well enough that they don't have to hit us over the head with their personalities. Yay! It was nice to see Bryan actually be thoughtful about his faith. I half expected him and that dirty hot Priest to make out though, right? Damn that was a hilarious and scruffy Priest. Are all Catholic Priests that self-deprecating and cool? Well, baptize me and call me Susan!
"I'm just a storage unit with legs."
Wow, I'm shocked at how self-aware Goldie was in this episode. When her sketchy doctor warns her that Bryan & David could drop her like a hot potato once she gives birth, Goldie is all, "Yeah, I get it. I'm not attached and everything will change." Um, I expected Goldie to bug out at this news but nope, she actually was completely level-headed. It's half nice to know that Goldie wasn't banking on being BFF with the boys forever and it's half super sad. Seems like Goldie has massive baggage and we're just starting to scratch the surface. Yay! Layers!
"Bryan and I have identical souls."
A delight as always, Shania's love of Bryan & David was questioned and, luckily, reaffirmed by night's end. I was scared though, real scared, that our gay boys were going to be dicks to Shania & Goldie about being "family." Phew. Everyone came through in the end and little Sally Jesse Raphael got to be a Godparent out of it.
No Nana, no grade. F to Ryan Murphy for not have Ellen Barks around.
"She's like Jesus but without his extensions"
As always, Rocky is an underutilized delight.
"The Godparent Trap"
Real Housewives of the Week
Gots to go to the power lesbo couple who balked at being godparents because they couldn't conceive. Only a true Housewife would over share when someone is asking them something incredibly nice. The amount of detail these two lesbians went into ("My eggs are powdered") was a slice of grossness that would make even the RHONY blush. Well, at least Aviva.
- Yay! Alice from "The L-Word" aka lead singer of Uh Huh Her aka Leisha Hailey made a sweet little cameo as a power lesbo (even rocking a majorly power lesbo do). She had an adorbz little wife in Natasha Leggero ... er, actually, that's Constance Zimmer. Holy shit, Natasha Leggero and Constance Zimmer are fucking twins.
- Aw, so cute that Shania and Rocky are the Godparents. I don't have any Godparents, will you be mine? Thanks.
- This is a first for me: I'm going with 0 demerits today. Super fine episode.
