  • The Old Normal was not this bad!

    This show is not getting better. It's sad that this show is still on the air. Maybe, this show is not being judged by the same quality standards as other shows. Go figure way?
  • Risky, but Worth It

    I think a lot of people over-analyzed the message of this show or tried to twist it in an unappealing way. I really loved the message - that you shouldn't be friends with people just because they're black or just because they're gay. It showed how our protagonists also have their problems and that Jane could be the voice of reason. I also liked the message about politics; we shouldn't identify with one side or another just because they're that side (like, you shouldn't be a Democrat just because you're a Democrat). We should all examine why we believe the things we do and act accordingly.

    Also, it was really funny, which I suppose is the point - the show is a comedy!
  • Up, and Down, and Up, and now back Down again

    This episode was horrible. It was like an attempt to make fun of Mitt Romney and Republicans and then say "just kidding!"

    There are, though, two good things that i liked:

    One: Rocky was introduced!

    Two: The new issue with Goldie and Shania possibly having to move back to Ohio.

    Other than that, the episode was horrible!
  • Another Offensive, Sad and Unfunny Episode

    The idea that two, wealthy gay white men don't have any black friends is not amusing. It speaks to everything that is wrong about this poorly produced show - and why it shall ultimately fail.
