This week on The New Normal, we deal with over-enthusiastic present-givers and becoming a foster parent. Though we talk way more about the first than about the second.
This week on “The New Normal”: Somebody on the writing staff watched a few of the season’s earlier episodes and remembered there were plot lines to be dealt with! It’s a miracle! Oh, also for those sensitive to dog deaths there is (spoiler alert) an off-screen dog death in this episode. Read More New Show Recap: The New Normal, Episode 1.17, “Dog People”
This week on The New Normal: Bryan and David visit some friends of theirs who have an infant, and Bryan is enchanted while watching the baby breastfeed.
David and Bryan come to a disagreement over Bryan’s choice of outfit for their son’s birth announcement: a traditional christening gown. David keeps calling it a dress and I really think that this is a religion problem, since my formerly-Catholic ass is all, “Yeah, dude, it’s a christening gown. Get over it.” But David thinks people will judge them more harshly since they’re already different and he doesn’t want to heap more judgement on their child. They agree to disagree for the moment, and David will try to figure out something else for their son to wear in the photo. Read More New Show Recap: “The New Normal”, 1.15, “Gaydar”

Bryan and David start to consider what kind of religious background they’ll raise their child with, since both of them are somewhat estranged from their respective faiths (Bryan was raised Catholic and David is Jewish). They decide that they need to find godparents for their child who can help give them the kind of spiritual guidance and understanding that Bryan and David may be a little rusty with. So, the mission to find some godparents is on! Read More New Show Recap: The New Normal, Episode 1.07, “The Godparent Trap”
