One word sums up this show: hilarious!
Ok maybe two or three words sum it up: hilarious, heartfelt, and witty.
So I thought the season premiere of this show was last night but in my true fashion of always being late for things it stared up last week. But no fear I watched it anyways and it didn’t disappoint.
If you don’t know anything about the show let me fill you in. It’s about a gay couple David and Bryan (Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells) and they want to have a baby. So they find a surrogate mother, Goldie (Georgia King). Goldie is trying to make a new life for her and her daughter Shania (Bebe Wood) after her marriage falls apart.
Lets start off with Ellen Barkin (The Grandmother): I feel like most people in my generation don’t know who this is and I honestly didn’t know who she was until I watched Oceans Thirteen. She was fantastic in that movie so I knew the show had to be a hit if she was in it. I will be honest she terrifies me. I mean look at her. She has a stare that makes me want to start crying and the way she presents herself with her stance and composure you’d think she just jumped off a runway. Gorgeous with a death ray stare.
Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells (The Gay Couple): They are adorable together. I have never taken Justin Bartha very seriously because most of the roles he plays are funny, like National Treasurer and The Hangover. So seeing him in this context isn’t a stretch and I think he plays the part well. Andrew Rannells I haven’t seen in anything before but seriously where has he been hiding? He’s wonderful in his role in this show. He made me laugh so much last night and that hair! I love it! I don’t know why but it’s awesome.
Georiga King (Goldie): I really haven’t formed an opinion on her yet per se. She is a mystery to me right now but I am open to see what happens with her character as the season progresses.
Shania (Bebe Wood): Adorable! The cutest little kid EVER! When you get her and Andrew Rannells together I seriously couldn’t keep it together. They are hilarious together.
Nene Leakes (Rocky): You might know this lady from the Real Housewives of ATL. I am not real sure about her either. I haven’t seen enough of the show to form an opinion yet so only time will tell…
Watch the show, you will love it! It’s on NBC Tuesday at 9:30 E.T.
