Nobody seems to have picked up on how truly vile this episode is - and I am a big fan of the show. I knew as soon as a male baby was born the show was going to fall into the usual trap of having to deal with the circumcision 'problem'.
The poor kid, having been born to a non-Jewish mother [not sure Nancy converted for her first marraige, but she isn't ethnically a Jew] and a non-Jewish father, finds himself in a stupid adult-behaviour situation of being forced into a religion which 'demands' his penis be altered without his consent. The casualness of Nancy agreeing to this and the mock-horror of Andy immediately wanting to check out the penis in question is thoroughly chilling and the bris sequence itself with a couple of mild cries from the baby again reinforcing the myth that this is a minor, painless business. The whole scenario is actually an example of child and human rights abuse. How refreshing the episode could have been if Nancy had instead showed a but of gumption and brains and just said NO! At least there was one voice of dissent from the younger brother calling it a barbaric ritual that reduces pleasure.
