The show rocks -- not only did it score big ratings for Bravo, there's an outside chance it'll be on NBC as soon as next week, according to one trade.

They did turn Butch back into Brian, so something must be right. :P

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.

It'll be interesting to see how it fares on NBC!

Didn't NBC buy Bravo a little while ago?

I think it was Laurel who had the "fuck me" eyes for Brian...

And yes, XPA, NBC did buy Bravo a while back.

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.

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.....

DAMMIT.

I meant to catch this show, but I forgot when it was on...

The show was freakin hilarious, when I first saw the ad I thought it was a joke, it was like watching Comedy Central. It is awesome, I could use some of the fashion tips, hell all of us guys could.

QE is on Bravo Tuesdays at 10/9c.

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."

What, that you've probably got great hair?

I laughed out loud at that. Especially since my ex-boyfriend would never let me play with the blowtorch. Even with a fire extinguisher in the kitchen.

Is that why he's an ex-boyfriend now? ;)
