  • An episode that touches on some good topics. Motherhood, or rather future motherhood, and being straight, but being in a group where the men are gay.

    Nick is playing in a basketball league with some men who are gay. They are regular guys, whose sexual orientation is gay. One guy even tells Nick "You need to admit you are gay, because it causes stress when you lie about it." When Nick sees the group photo he signs his name and "not gay" by his name. Next basketball game he is roughed up by the men. I thought it was a good episode showing how gays have to deal with stereotypes of being gay, but understanding that a straight man wants to be known as straight, while not knocking the gay lifestyle. Interesting.

    Shelly feels she is not cut out to be a Mom when she drops a baby she is taking care of. She is so freaked out by the ordeal she vows never to have children. When Rita is having problems with the baby, she calls Shelly who is finally able to calm the baby down. The baby used in the show was adorable!!!

    The scene that made me laugh a lot was when Shelly said "you should take a rectal reading." The look on JC's, Nick and Rita's faces was hilarious.moreless
  • Great episode that explores sexual stereotypes.

    In another worthy episode from this multi-cutural sitcom, Shelly loses confidence in her maternal skills after an accident with Janie\'s cousin\'s baby. Meanwhile, Nick joins a gay basketball team solely because he wants to play with the best local league in Miami. While the Shelly story was great, Nick\'s situation is more interesting because the gay teammates are portrayed as normal people who just happened to be gay. No swishy stereotypes here; just a good storyline and solid acting. Brian Hooks as Nick really shines in this episode.moreless
