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. […]
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.
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 […]
This week on The New Normal we get the episode that should’ve aired the week Sandy hit. Because of this, Goldie’s a lot less pregnant, and we’re getting Halloween long after the Christmas episode. The good news is there are actually some important plot lines that get wrapped up! Mostly, anyway.
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.
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 […]
This week’s The New Normal is all about child care arrangements and having realistic expectations of your parenting abilities. And also Rocky’s dreams of being a producer. But mostly the parenting stuff.
This week we tackle family planning, bullying, and Matt Bomer. Well, mostly Matt Bomer. My fingers are crossed that he becomes a recurring character.
It’s the holidays and Bryan and David are under some stress. Stress of it being the holidays, stress of waiting on a baby, and the stress of attempting to prematurely baby-proof their house. I mean, seriously, Goldie’s like maybe six months along? I know it’s best to be prepared ahead of time, but it’s a […]
Apparently there was an episode over Thanksgiving and I didn’t realize it, so this will be a double recap. Yay! Sort of!
The episode starts out with the sort of non-plotline that Bryan, David, and Shania are overly addicted to their mobile electronic devices and Goldie encourages everyone to do away with their tech devices.
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 […]
Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangement, that dweam wifin a dweam is the focus of tonight’s episode.
This episode is all about moms (and grandmoms, I guess) because David’s mom is coming to visit. This inspires Bryan to go “eat a pill the size of a cake” while Nana is discovering her groove. I’d say “getting it back,” but a flashback shows us that Nana kind of had her groove cut off […]
