I really think this is a fun show! I can see that it could be offensive to gay people -- I hope it's not, but I don't know....I'm not gay and have not discussed the show with any gay people who have seen it. It is more likely that the people who will be offended are judgmental straight people. The grandmother is excessively harsh, but that is her character and she is very funny in a shocking OMG way. Overall, I think this show strikes a very nice balance between comedy and tenderness. The characters are endearing (except "said grandmother") and the material is full of heart. I'd like to give a special shout-out to the young Bebe Wood, who was outrageous in the second episode in portraying one of the sisters from "Grey Gardens".....bravo, Bebe! You nailed it! Too funny!
