Let’s Talk About Ellen and Liz Feldman’s New Lesbian Sitcom “One Big Happy”

Like most lesbians over the age of 35, I remember exactly where I was when Ellen’s “The Puppy Episode” aired back in 1997. Even if you’re not old enough to remember it, you know all about it. It is the most significant cultural milestone in gay TV history. Tonight, Ellen returned to the tempestuous world of network sitcoms, kind of. She produced Liz Feldman‘s new lesbian-centric comedy One Big Happywhich landed on NBC to generally unkind reviews.

One Big Happy is based on Liz Feldman’s real life. It tells the story of a Type-A lesbian named Lizzy and her laid back best friend, Luke, who decide to have a baby together because they’re in their 30s and neither of them have had significant romantic relationships in a while. But in the early days of trying to conceive — through artificial means — Luke is swept off his feet by a British woman named Prudence. When he returns home from a whirlwind trip to Vegas, where he married Prudence, he finds out Lizzy is pregnant. Lizzy and Prudence spend most of the pilot episode fighting over Luke, until he chooses his best friend, because he made a promise to her first. But Lizzy loves Luke and Luke loves Prudence, so Lizzy chases down her new frenemy at the airport and asks her to come live with them, Three’s Company-style.

The negative critical response to One Big Happy isn’t really a surprise. With very few exceptions, sitcom pilots are notoriously terrible because they have to do too many things: introduce you to all the show’s characters, tell a self-contained story, lay the groundwork for a season-long story, make you laugh, and hook you so you’ll come back for more next week. And all in 22 minutes.

I don’t have any interest in shredding something lovingly stitched together by two of the funniest and most open-hearted lesbians on earth, but it’s also my job to be honest and critical, so let’s break One Big Happy‘s pilot down into The Good and The Could Be Better.

Here’s the trailer:

The Good

Despite the fact that we’re seeing exponential growth for queer women on TV, there’s still a huge void of queer lady representation in sitcoms. In fact, I can count all of the leading lesbian/bi sitcom characters in television history on one hand. Ellen from Ellen, Karen from Will & Grace, Amy from Faking It, Anne from Go On, and Kay from Marry Me. Karen’s bisexuality was only implied; Go On barely lasted one season; and NBC seems ready to pull the plug on Marry Me after its first season. So, yes, a dearth! One Big Happy is honestly the first sitcom to really try to lead with a lesbian since Ellen, which is bonkers if you think about it. That was 17 years ago. So that’s good! There’s a need and One Big Happy is trying to fill it!

Also good is the chemistry between Elisha Cuthbert (who plays Lizzy), Nick Zano (who plays Luke), and Kelly Brook (who plays Prudence). Cuthbert, especially, has proven herself as a hilarious actress with flawless comedic timing. She’s forced to play the straight man a lot in the pilot, but when she gets to be the funny one, it’s going to be a very good thing.

The pilot offered up some hearty giggles. Liz Feldman is a funny lady. There’s no doubt about that. And she told us she approved the scripts for all six episodes NBC has commissioned so far, so it’ll be fun to see how One Big Happy plays when it finds its rhythm. Riese and I talked and talked and talked about this pilot, and she said her girlfriend, Abby, laughed a whole lot during it (which is good for many reasons, including: Abby has the flu, so she deserves to guffaw).

The Could Be Better

One Big Happy is a multi-camera laugh-track sitcom, which means it looks and sounds a lot more like Friends, Seinfeld and Will & Grace than 30 Rock, Community and Parks and Recreation. It’s a weird creative choice. I mean, CBS makes a killing with its multi-camera sitcoms, but it feels a bit dated for NBC. It’s really surprising that the show didn’t aim for a more Modern Family aesthetic.

The laughs rely on gently mocking stereotypes and making double-entendres, which isn’t my personal cup of tea, but if you love The Big Bang Theory‘s set-and-spike-style comedy, you’re probably going to like this. Still, though, comedy is made for skewering tropes, and Liz Feldman is one of the funniest women in Hollywood, so I hope NBC loosens the reins and lets her get a little more real.

The most frustrating thing about One Big Happy to me is that the focus of the show is how the two main women feel about the man in their life, even though one of the women is a lesbian. Pru and Lizzy only talk about Luke, only argue about Luke, only think about Luke. When they’re all three in a scene together, he is physically positioned between them at all times. The pilot isn’t super Bechdel-friendly, is what I am saying.

I want One Big Happy to succeed. I am rooting for it hard. And hopefully NBC hangs in there through the growing pains. It’d be smart. The first seasons of The Office, Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock were all really shaky. The first six episodes of Parks and Recreation were almost unwatchable. (And then it turned into the greatest, most feminist show ever.)

I mentioned “The Puppy Episode” at the beginning of this review because when I tuned into One Big Happy tonight, I figured everyone I know would be watching too, for sentiment’s sake alone. I am surrounded by queer pop culture aficionados. But I don’t know anyone besides me and my girlfriend (and Riese and her girlfriend) who watched the show live. Some of my friends were still reeling on Pretty Little Liars, which aired right before One Big Happy. Some of my friends were watching Laverne Cox over on The Mindy Project. Some of my friends were catching a rerun of The Fosters. Some of my friends were doing their weekly Defiance rewatch. They were all watching queer women on TV, but none of them were watching One Big Happy.

It made me wonder if the lasting legacy of Ellen is that it was the springboard that created a culture where she can executive produce a sitcom about a lesbian character, and gay women are only just sort of peripherally interested in it. A world where One Big Happy can fly or flop, and it won’t really be a big deal, in terms of queer representation on television. What a sad, weird, kind of wonderful thing.

Did you watch One Big Happy? What’d you think of the pilot episode? Will you be tuning in for more?

  1. I can’t say that I’m super into the premise of the show, but I’m rooting so hard for it to succeed. I love Liz Feldman’s style of comedy, and I felt like you could totally see her in the way Elisha Cuthbert played Lizzie. I know I laughed out loud a number of times during the show, but I’ll be the first to admit I’m a pretty easy audience. Perhaps it was a bit too one-note to start with, and relied on some stereotypes, but I can’t imagine trying to hook an audience with only 22 minutes. Especially when you’re trying to play for a mass general audience.

    I can say without reservations that I enjoyed it, and will be back for more. It’s got room to grow, and I’m hoping it gets the chance to do so.

  2. Putting it up against the mindy project, which is probably my favorite network sitcom currently on the air, is either really stupid or really revelatory w/r/t how they perceive the potential audience for this show? It feels so so so so mainstream and digestible. The lesbian doesn’t even feel subversive? Definitely Ellen’s sitcom was more progressive in so many ways, buttt we only just got started so who knows. I laughed twice though. Although I could barely hear myself over the canned laughter!

    • Lizzy didn’t feel subversive because she wasn’t. She was candy coated for the masses. Let’s all laugh about how she wore a tux to prom! Even though now, of course, she’s got perfectly digestable hetero hair and it looks like the wardrobe department tried to dress a ‘lesbian’ using staples from Barbara Bush’s summer closet.

      This is 2015. You don’t get to be subversive merely by being gay. And a show doesn’t automatically get my loyal viewership just because it’s written and produced by (gorgeous, funny, talented, brave) lesbian women (whom I love and want to succeed). I’ll give it another ep, but yikes.

  3. It just seems so tropey. I will probably give the first episode a chance, but I don’t have high expectations.

  4. You know what’s cool though?
    Mainstream audiences are just going to be waiting for Lizzy and Luke to finally get together…and then they WON’T
    Because: Liz Feldman

  5. Regarding the multicam decision: I think that NBC is freaking out about having lost its footing as the comedy network; the network has slowly been losing Thursdays over the past few years, and now TGIT on ABC has completely kicked NBC out of the way. The Office is over. 30 Rock is over. Parks and Rec is over. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is getting a ton of recognition via Netflix, and I’m sure execs are kicking themselves for giving that up. Multicam sitcoms used to be NBC’s jam, and I think that some of the execs over there assume (incorrectly, IMO) that the way to get the network back into the comedy genre is to go back to what they know, and they know multicam sitcoms that treat friends as family. It worked for them in the 90s, it’s working for CBS with BBT, and maybe it’ll work for them now. FOX’s comedies work with the younger part of the 18-49 demo, CBS’s comedies work with the older part, and ABC is just going balls-to-the-wall with diversity. NBC doesn’t know what the hell to do now, so its going with what it used to know.

    The only show I watch live is PLL, because I don’t have cable, and I only have the energy to find live feeds for one show a week (plus I have to watch the east coast’s feed, and it’ll look bad if I mentally check out at 5 PM every day). I’m planning on watching it later, but for now, my two main issues are a) what you said above, that even with a lesbian, the show still centers around a straight cis white guy, and b) all three main characters are white. Look at the comedies that do well for FOX: Mindy, New Girl (I can wax poetic about the diversity on New Girl), and Brooklyn Nine. ABC has Modern Family, and then Black-ish and Fresh Off The Boat are doing pretty well. The demo that ABC and FOX are bringing in with these shows are, presumably, the demo that NBC wants back, and NBC just doesn’t seem to understand that diversity is key with the 18-34 group. America Ferrera was just cast in something, but like, come on, NBC. You know what your competitors have in development, and you cast three white people as your main characters? You couldn’t have made the British woman not be white? (Yes I know that there are a bunch of brown secondary characters–and by “know,” I mean “I saw on the IMDB page”–, but we brown people do not exist in the periphery of the stories of white people.)

    Also, Prudence? Really? Do British people still name their children that?

    Basically, I’m going to watch this, just liked I watched The New Normal and Go On, because I want NBC to get back on its game. I want NBC to know that people are watching shows on Hulu or the NBC website and realize that comedies are still important, even with all of the hype dramas get, and that because people are still watching comedies, it’s okay to take some risks in terms of stories and diversities and whatever. I miss Must See TV Thursdays (even though I was like, 10 when NBC was at its high point).

    • Totally agree about the multi-cam format (and laugh track). It feels like the execs are being too shy and expecting the worst/most timid of audiences – especially when coupled with the info they let Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt go. It just feels like a step back in time unfortunately – but think it could be vastly improved with a little more risk taking in the dialogue which will hopefully improve past the normal issues with pilots.

  6. I missed the first 10 minutes because I forgot it was on. I really wanted to watch it because of Ellen and Liz Feldman. I remember watching THE EPISODE of Ellen, I was young tomboy sitting on the floor of my parent’s living room.

    Anyway, I did laugh a few times. It was not full blown laugh but it was louder than a chuckle. I mean it wasn’t like the greatest thing I ever watched but I want to watch it again just to see where they take it and how the characters develop.

  7. I did not watch the pilot,but reading this convinced me that I should give it a try.
    I want sitcoms with queer representation to succeeded!

    I grew up with Will and Grace and Friends and seeing queer characters from a young age really helped me to feel “normal” as I was struggling through the process of discovering my sexuality.
    No doubt some of the queer representation in those shows was troubled and we can always be striving to do better… but it was still people “like me” in the media, and that is a powerful thing.

  8. I’m an indie film and TV writer/producer currently working on several sitcoms with LGBT themes and protagonists and let me tell you, “One Big Happy” was awful last night. The jokes were lackluster and like it was said in the article, multi-cam shows are very dated on NBC. I love Ellen and Liz, but this schlock shouldn’t even been picked up. Plus, I don’t know of a single lesbian who would make a pact with their lesbro to have his baby if she hasn’t started a family by the age of 30. 30?!? 30 is the new 20. I’m 27 and I still watch cartoons and eat cereal in my pa jay jays on Saturday mornings.

    • I don’t know many straight people who do that either. They may make jokes, but that’s about it. If you remember this show is partially based on Liz’s real life(they had a pact, but he got married and it never went through).

    • yeah when she said “by the age of 30” i was like WOAH that is not what i thought the premise was gonna be! that’s so young! damn girl.

  9. “They were all watching queer women on TV, but none of them were watching One Big Happy…It made me wonder if the lasting legacy of Ellen is that it was the springboard that created a culture where she can executive produce a sitcom about a lesbian character, and gay women are only just sort of peripherally interested in it. A world where One Big Happy can fly or flop, and it won’t really be a big deal, in terms of queer representation on television. What a sad, weird, kind of wonderful thing.”

    Wonderful? Yes. Sad? No. For me, it’s not enough these days for a show to be created and produced by lesbians. It has to be good, too.

    The thing is, in all of those other shows you reference, the queer characters are more than just queer. They have jobs and lives and motivations and the fact that they’re LGBTQ+ is not a punchline or the sum total of their character. But in the pilot of One Big Happy, Lizzie was nothing more than a lesbian. I mean, they pushed the button on the laugh track for ‘jokes’ like the fact that she wore a tux to prom. What does she do for a living? Why does she want a baby? What does she enjoy, besides the Container store and jealously keeping tabs on her straight best friend? We don’t know! All we know is that it’s funny that she’s uncomfortable with Kelly’s Brook’s vajayjay pressed against her leg, EVEN THOUGH SHE’S GAY!

    The script in the pilot honestly came off as circa 1994. Remember when Carole in Friends announced that she and Susan were getting married, cue the hilarious laughter? There was, I guess, a time and place for that — at least they were there, at least they DID get married. But that time and place has passed. Now it’s time for the fact that Lizzy is a lesbian to just be one part of her character. Like in The Fosters. And Pretty Little Liars. And all of the other shows out there that are doing a better job with queer politics (so far) than One Big Happy.

    • Yes! That’s so true. DID SHE HAVE A JOB, EVEN? I was so confused. I was also confused as to why she was totally okay with committing to a celibate life with her straight male best friend?

      • Totally! I know it’s a comedy, but their “so we’re sure about this, right?” talk sounded like they were debating what to get from Redbox, not whether to bring a baby into the world. And the entire pilot was about HIS love life, while there weren’t really any actual mentions of hers. Besides that she is SO LESBIAN.

  10. I watched it, I agree with most of what’s been said. I did lol a few times, and I will definitely keep watching, hoping for improvement.

  11. I could probably list the number of multi-cam sitcoms i’ve seen in one breath, so I wasn’t sure as I was watching if this was par for the course or if it was just bad, full stop. Turns out it was both. But i’ll keep watching because whatever, it’s five more episodes.

  12. I thought it was mostly a week okay, and a lot of that as you say is pilot character establishing issues. It might be worked out over time.

    But one GIANT ISSUE is that they included an anti-trans joke. Essentially, Prudence says she has something that Luke needs to know, and he says “Is it that you used to be a man? Because I’m weirdly okay with that.”

    This is BAD, even in the weaker version than the typical trans bashing joke. For one, the language of ‘used to be a man’ is hated by trans people. We, uh, haven’t been quiet about this. And even worse, it’s playing off audience expectations that most people would find this a deal breaker. Ugh. No. Trans people are people.

    In a normal sitcom I’d be relieved at only being mildly bashed, but I expect more from an explicitly LGB one. Knock this shit off. Fast.

    • I didn’t know who Liz Feldman was until recently when Autostraddle started talking about this show. And since then, I’ve watched a few episodes of This Just Out to see what she’s like. I generally like her and find her funny, but she has a tendency to do anti-penis jokes that make me really uncomfortable. And I don’t expect anyone to date/sleep with anyone they’re not attracted to, but she makes the jokes like it’s something that’s true for all lesbians. But some lesbians still have penises!

      In the latest episode, they joked about how they couldn’t believe someone with a husband watched the show. So, bi erasure is an issue she needs to work on as well and I could see some problematic material relating to that popping up on One Big Happy too.

      So, all in all, I love that there is someone trying to make a comedy with a lead character that is a lesbian, but I feel like they’re going about it in a very bad way.

    • Thank you for mentioning this, because I was going to mention it if no one else did. It seemed to be even more egregious because in the Autostraddle interview with Liz Feldman, she said she personally approved all of the scripts, which means she approved this transphobic “joke.” This was a giant red flag to me.

    • I don’t think I’m even going to give it a chance now. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

      • Same. If a show can’t even make it one episode without making a joke at the expense of trans women, I’m not interested. I’m not wasting my time with queer media that celebrates some LGBT people while denigrating other members of the community.

    • Yes that joke was horrible! Prudence and I yelled “No!” at the same time but sadly not for the same reason.

  13. I’m really rooting for this show to do well, because if it doesn’t we here in the UK will never see it and I’d like to at least have a chance to watch it.
    P.S. Anyone seen Heading Out, guessing it wasn’t shown in the US. 6 episode Lesbian sitcom written, produced by and starring a lesbian (Sue Perkins) circa 2013. Sadly not renewed.

  14. I really disliked this show, which is such a shame because I love, love, love “This Just Out” and I want Liz Feldman to succeed. But the jokes were bad, Prudence was grating, the multi-camera format with a laugh track is terrible, and I have zero interest in the story line. I kind of knew all this from the previews but I still wanted to give it a chance.

    I think what I’m most worried about is that if this show fails due to the above reasons will the failure be blamed on it being a lesbian show, and will it make it even harder to get another lesbian show out there? I sincerely hope not.

  15. can this even be considered a “lesbian sitcom,” though? like, is it *really* about lesbians (or even just A Lesbian), or is it about straight people dealing with a lesbian in their life?

    i didnt watch the pilot so i might be unqualified to weigh in but im not sure it’s enough to call something any kind of “queer” simply bc there are non-straight people / characters involved.

    even knowing that the storyline is based off of Feldman’s Real Life Experiences, Lizzie just seems to be a blip on the radar of Luke and Prudence’s relationship. just because she’s the “main character” doesn’t mean she’s not sidelined as a third wheel to the main plotline, which seems to be all about how the straight relationship will handle this Extraneous Third (and Fourth, including the inevitable baby) Party.

    i think Ellen’s statement at the beginning of the promo (“You’re going to like it […] because there’s a lesbian in it.”) says it all: queer people are so desperate for representation, we’ll watch anything that has someone like us in it. and if that character is surrounded by “normal” people, then the “normal” people will want to watch it, too. it feels almost like “A Visual Guide to Dealing With Your Gay Friends.” like, “see? we can laugh at your jokes at our expense! we can drool over your gf/bf/wife/husband but keep our hands to ourselves!”

    from my vantage point, this show is not for the benefit of lesbians; therefore, i don’t see what makes it a “lesbian sitcom?”

    (this question is only marginally rhetorical, pls feel free to argue)

    also the “used to be a man” joke is fucking reprehensible and the fact that it made it through to the final stages, regardless of who wrote it, especially on a show that is supposed to be “queer” is inexcusable

    • Yes, thank you. There is no room for cheap jokes at the expense of trans women in the shows I watch. It’s lazy and it’s not funny and it’s something that used to happen a lot in the nineties. This is 2015. Let’s all catch up!

  16. I’m giving this a hard pass. The laughtrack is a dealbreaker for me, and that trailer looks awful. I have no loyalties in watching every queer woman on TV now, plus this show breaks my cardinal rule: no TV shows centered around white men.

    Also, Clarke from The 100 is a bisexual lead which is a huge deal and should not be glossed over in talking about representation for lead characters.

  17. there’s a false dichotomy in Feldman’s approach, namely that a lesbian show catering to lesbians could not succeed because only lesbians would watch it.

    I definitely think a lesbian show catering to lesbian audiences would also interest a mainstream audience. Case in point: Orange Is The New Black, and probably other examples.

    Queer people want to see themselves represented, but I feel like queer allies are also interested in seeing authentic rather than ‘mainstream-ified’ queer representation.

  18. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrr. I´ll keep watching because i really want it to get better but oh man, not really into it.
    The jokes kind of weak and I´M British and that girl´s “English” accent was painful. I dunno, It it would be different.

  19. I laughed more than I thought I would having seen the trailer. So I may give the second episode a chance.

    But overall, the storyline and characters are pretty weak. Why did they have her make the tux joke but present her as a fairly feminine lesbian? Why did they make that terrible used to be a man joke?

    This show desperately needs more queer characters and more people of colour as well.

  20. I watched the pilot and mostly liked it. I love Elisha Cuthbert and thought she was great here. As is Kelly Brook. And Nick Zano is more likeable in this than I thought he’d be. I also really love Elisha’s brother-in-law in this. He got the most laughs from me. However, I’m not a big fan of the old school multi-cam sitcom format and some of the jokes weren’t that funny. That trans joke especially was absolutely awful and I want to know who wrote it.

    This is probably not a show I’m going to make time to watch every week but I might catch it every once in a while. Hopefully, the network actually gives Elisha’s character some love interests and she’s not just a lesbian in name only. That’s really I have to say about it right now.

  21. I forgot it was on. Whoops. I’m going to give it a go for all the reasons everyone has espoused above, but I am going in with a bit of trepidation. The New Normal lost me 100% when they made that awful joke about an intersex person. I’m really not loving knowing there’s a “used to be a man” transphobic joke in the pilot. Sigh. So if things continue along that path, it may be a hard pass for me.

    I want lesbian and bi and queer women in lead roles. I am still thirsty. I just feel like we can do better in 2015, can’t we? Like, we can write three-dimensional queer characters in 2015? I’m not sure I’m still willing to settle for less any more. But I will be giving this the one season commitment because I care about our representation in pop culture, especially in the mainstream, and I want to be informed about how all of this goes down (and hopefully becomes amazing).

  22. I don’t have a TV so I can’t watch this in Canada… NBC doesn’t allow Canadians to watch online :(

    It seems to me that Ellen’s brand of gay is designed to be palatable to straight people. I have problems watching her show sometimes because it is SO heteronormative, sometimes she makes references to Portia or being gay, but these are rare moments. She’s always getting guys to go shirtless, book good looking male actors, etc because the show targets straight women.

    I support Ellen and all that she does, if that’s what she has to do to, then that’s what she has to do. But I can’t watch the show regularly without being seriously turned off by all the straight baiting.

    The fact that she is a part of this sitcom is just another version of her brand making gay ok to straight people. It sounds like a show for straight people.

    All that being said, I’m desperate for queer representation so I’d like to watch it, but I’ll probably be disappointed.

    • This post is the description I didn’t know I needed to fully explain why I don’t really like The Ellen Show. Then I feel bad for thinking it. Generally also, I find her interviews too shallow, even for a daytime variety show.

  23. I can barely stomach the first episode. Where to start. I adore Ellen and Liz, of course… But it was pretty terrible. Thus far, this show completely caters to a straight audience (from my perspective, at least). I know 22 minutes is a short amount of time and there’s a lot of pressure to accomplish many things.. But I didn’t even get any sense at ALL of who Elisha Cuthbert’s character was. She’s a Lesbian and that’s all. It was totally boring. I think it would have been far more effective to establish her & her roommate’s relationship for a few episodes at least with the new woman on the periphery. He meets and marries her in like 2.5 days? It’s ridiculous.

    • that guy meeting a girl and immediately moving in with her is probably the gayest thing that happened in the episode

  24. I too was supremely disappointed by this pilot and since I didn’t see it above, I gotta call them out on the transphobic joke. When prudence lets on that she has something she needs to confess to luke, he preempts with “you were born a man!?” And then follows up with this kicker, something along the lines of “I may be strangely okay with that.” SO DISAPPOINTING. trans jokes are fucking OVER and to hear that from such a thoroughly lesbian generated show, it’s the worst.

  25. I watched the pilot earlier today (all my tv is via Hulu or Netflix, so couldn’t watch it last night). It was pretty meh, but would have been better without the laugh track. The part where Lizzy named her cat Ellen made me smile and have some warm fuzzies.

    The thing that bothered me the most was the bit where the show is about these two women and their relationship to the straight dude. Maybe the show will pull a switch and Lizzy and Prudence will end up a thing. That might be more of a drama move than a sitcom, though.

  26. i like the show. elisha cuthbert’s impression of liz feldman’s high pitched mumble/chuckle thing is spot on. i totally agree about the bechdel issue, though.

  27. Your link in the first paragraph about the poor reviews for One Big Happy led to an article about Bibi Netanyahu. I’m guessing that wasn’t supposed to happen. :)

  28. I forgot it was on but I will catch up online. I want this to succeed, as Sarah Warn would say “visibility matters”

    • Yeah, but we’re getting lots of visibility these days, so we can be a little bit pickier. Let’s make sure the show represents us as real people, and not shadow puppets defined by our sexual identity.

  29. I thought the pilot was pretty weak and generic but I’m giving the series a few more chances (even if it just becomes one of those “watching while doing other things show”). I missed Alex Kerkovich’s blonde mane!

  30. yikes. i can’t even lie. i’m 50 seconds into the episode and i’m cringing. second-hand embarrassment. that spiel at the beginning “i know we’re not everyone’s idea of a traditional family…” yikes, i mean…yikes. i dunno if i can continue tbh.

    • Late to the party, but I’m only a couple minutes in, and am finding it not funny at all, and why did they have to drop everything in the first 12 seconds of the show? It sorta feels the person on the bus who tells you their wholelifestory in one breath.

      Sadly, I’m more intrigued with the British gal’s interest in dudebro.

  31. I definitely laughed loudly at the naked Prudence and Lizzy’s discomfort scene but I have to agree with other commenters — a laugh track? Really? I will choose when to laugh, thank you.

  32. Whats up very cool blog!! Man .. Beautiful .. Amazing .. I will bookmark your site and take the feeds additionally?
    I’m glad to find numerous useful info right here in the submit, we need develop extra techniques in this
    regard, thank you for sharing. . . . . .
