New Show Recap: The New Normal, Ep. 21 and 22, “Finding Name-O” and “The Big Day”

Double episode tonight! Everything’s going to be wrapped up! Probably. So, Bryan and David are working on planning their wedding, one which I’m sure is strictly ceremonial since it’s still not legal for gay couples in California to marry. Unfortunately, Bryan and David have very different tastes. Literally, as right now they’re arguing about cake. Bryan wants the blood orange over David’s pick of red velvet. We also learn they haven’t picked a baby name yet. Later, David tells Bryan that he wants Bryan’s mother at their wedding, but Bryan is resistant. Bryan gives in, but only because it’s important to David. Read More New Show Recap: The New Normal, Ep. 21 and 22, “Finding Name-O” and “The Big Day”

New Show Recap: The New Normal, Ep. 1.20 “About a Boy Scout”

This week on The New Normal, we actually have some problems that aren’t resolved within the episode! Amazing! And kind of sad, but I’m just surprised they decided to let something about Bryan and David’s life be less than perfect. Read More New Show Recap: The New Normal, Ep. 1.20 “About a Boy Scout”

New Show Recap: The New Normal, Ep. 1.19 “Blood, Sweat, and Fears”

Bryan, David, and Goldie are all at a doctor’s appointment for Goldie and the fetus. David remains engaged throughout the appointment, but Bryan is a little more flip. Turns out that because David is a doctor, Bryan’s a bit lax about learning things like the Heimlich, or anything about the baby’s healthcare. David’s fed up with Bryan’s disinterest and says that he’s not going to provide any doctory input anymore and that Bryan has to do some research on his own.

New Show Recap: The New Normal, Episode 1.17, “Dog People”

New Show Recap: “The New Normal”, 1.15, “Gaydar”

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”
