    It is a cute show, sort of. And I am happy that these actors are getting a little steady work. But it is really the issue of surrogacy that I find difficult to wrap my head around. The show of course wouldn’t work if they were adopting a child. I guess as long as people are laughing they will have less time for hating. I hope.

    I love the show. They just need more Nana and NeNe. Those two together crack me up!

    At least there will be a how where the gay couple actually seems to like each other and will show normal affection.

    Now if only Modern family would get rid of Cam and spend a season letting Mitchel find somebody tolerable.

    This seems to be every gay’s new show to hate… but I really like it.

    I love this show! I don’t know how it’s going to last beyond one season though (unless he plans to do it American Horror Story style where they switch couples every season!)

    Oooooooo, interesting idea!
