The funniest thing in that episode was the "just a friend" Laura staring at Brian with her boyfriend getting increasingly annoyed, while the Fab 5 watching on the monitors provided the "She wants him" commentary.
What was the line in the other episode? As they were moving the kids' outside toys outside, one of the guys said something like "Oh great. I get to be the gay man who makes small children cry." And the wife who didn't appreciate the fois gras? Feh.
You've got to give the victims credit. There were a few places where (particularly) the fashion guy was "pushing the envelope" just a little more than most straight guys would be inclined to humour.
Okay, this may be the one reality show I would be willing to ever appear on (other than Trading Spaces if they promised I could work with Amy Wynn and Gen). I am very happy being straight, but god knows I could definitely use some better fashion sense to help me look snazzy ;)
This show was totally outstanding. Carson was so over the top - he's the gay Denis Leary!
I thought Ted the chef guy was Fred Schneider from the B-52s for a minute, too.
Now, some folks might think this is portraying all the gay stereotypes and might be offensive to the gay community. Well, to do some research, my wife and I asked our gay hair stylist and he thought it was a riot! Case closed.
pieman - watch the comments about me having a gay barber now!
It was hella sweet. My favorites of them have to be Carson (as the over the top one as stated) and Ted (the guy with the dry sarcastic wit). They all seem to play off of each other so well that it rules. You have Carson (stated above), Ted (stated above), Kyan (the stud/eye candy for the women/men), Kai(the young, upbeat one) and Thom (the lowkey funny smart guy), I dont like the idea of it going to NBC unless they play it later at night (ie the 10pm slot) b/c they will prolly have to censor some of it.
This is one of the shows that I could honestly say I would skip WWE to watch, and thats saying a lot. The show is funny and educational at the same time.
Dear lord, that guy on the 2nd episode was ridiculous. How in the hell are you a successful businessman when you look like that and your house looks like that? And before watching that show I thought I was bad.....
I meant to catch this show, but I forgot when it was on...
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
I don't really think that NBC has to censor it at all; it's dialogue level is on par with Will & Grace, so I don't see a problem there.
I agree on some of the tips, but Ted's "Whether you're browning, searing, or just setting things on fire, a kitchen blowtorch is fun for the whole family!" was canned and utter bullshit. The tips, while good, are so canned it's awful. Minor nitpicking on the altogether good show.

That's funny, because I loved that line. Sure, it's canned. But it's done so as kind of a campy canned, sort of like "The more you know" for people who don't mind irreverence. How is a blowtorch fun for the whole family? Would you want your eight-year-old having fun with said blowtorch? Of course not.
I just liked the fact that they weren't playing by the nuclear heterosexual family rules when giving you home advice. It wasn't "reading is good," or "Moms can be smart too!" No, it was, "blowtorches are good for the kitchen."
TBS does have this, along with other shows, for international distribution... I just wish one of the distributors would pick it up. I'm telling you -- next Iron Chef here. Any how, very small resolution RMs are here...
