The new Lifetime reality series The Week the Women Went is based on the premise that, without the nurturing help of their wives, the men of Yemassee, South Carolina, would be completely helpless. (Gender norms are hilarious, aren’t they?) Just in case that doesn’t create enough drama, on tomorrow’s episode the guys have to stage a beauty pageant for their daughters. When the flaming pageant coaches arrive, hilarity ensues!
MEN DON'T LEAVE
This Lifetime series is actually an American adaptation of a Canadian series of the same name that aired on the CBC network last year. In the Canadian version, the town was in the western province of Alberta — Canada’s “cowboy country” (and home province of conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper).
I live in northern Vermont, where I can receive three of Canada’s three major TV networkd via cable. While I can’t recall anything gay-themed in the Canadian version of “The Week the Women Went — I didn’t watch every episode — to include it in the American series (Especially since it’s set in South Carolina) is daring, to say the least.
There should be a spin off series called The Week The Bottoms left about a town where all the top boys turn to doing each other.
Yeah, come on. You just know that some of those husbands have been waiting for this opportunity for YEARS. ;-D
