In NBC’s THE NEW NORMAL, created by Ali Adler and Ryan Murphy, Midwesterner Goldie Clemmons, played by Georgia King, takes her young daughter Shania (Bebe Wood) and strikes out for California in the hopes of making a better life for both of them. This so upsets Goldie’s conservative grandmother Jane (Ellen Barkin) that the older woman follows them to the West Coast, hoping to browbeat Goldie into returning to their home state. Then Goldie meets gay couple David Murray (Justin Bartha) and Bryan Collins (Andrew Rannells), who long to be parents. Goldie agrees to serve as their surrogate, carrying the […]Read On »

Stars: Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells, Georgia King, Bebe Wood, NeNe Leakes, Ellen Barkin Writer: Mark Kunerth   Director: Ryan Murphy       Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: October 9, 2012 Ryan Murphy is once again at the helm of this new episode of THE NEW NORMAL, and with “Bryanzilla” we have a return to the rigid stereotypes and beating over the head of messages that the series started out as. The idea for the episode is cute but absurd with Shania (Bebe Wood) getting pretend engaged and wanting to have a pretend wedding. Enter Bryan (Andrew Rannells) with clearly plenty of […]Read On »

Stars: Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells, Georgia King, Bebe Wood, NeNe Leakes, Ellen Barkin Writer: Allison Adler  Director: Scott Ellis      Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: September 25, 2012 It’s interesting to me that the first episode of THE NEW NORMAL, “Obama Mama”, that Ryan Murphy didn’t write and direct is the first episode to really move away from the God awful stereotypes that have been plaguing this show since the pilot. I like the show, but it’s been a big bone of contention for me that every single episode is chock full of cliché stereotypes all across the board, […]Read On »

Stars: Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells, Georgia King, Bebe Wood, NeNe Leakes, Ellen Barkin Writer:  Ryan Murphy & Allison Adler  Director: Ryan Murphy      Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: September 11, 2012 I do like THE NEW NORMAL in spite of myself. I can’t help it. The one-liners are fast and funny, and even though this series does nothing but perpetuate stereotypes to middle America, I still find a lot of it funny — and I hate sitcoms. In my last review I bitched long and loud about the various forms of stereotypes that this show reinforces, and with the […]Read On »

Stars: Justin Bartha, Andrew Rannells, Georgia King, Bebe Wood, NeNe Leakes, Ellen Barkin Writer:  Ryan Murphy & Allison Adler   Director: Ryan Murphy       Network: NBC, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: September 10, 2012 THE NEW NORMAL was creating controversy just that started just by NBC announcing it as part of the fall line up. The creepy, crazy religious right group One Million Moms (you know the ones that protested JC Penny for having Ellen Degeneres in their ads) was vowing to boycott the network for having a series showing this type of “gay agenda” program on its network. So, […]Read On »
