What happens when the What Happens At the Abbey preview happens is you absolutely freak. You lose your mind! Someone says at top, “Time to party, bitches!” and then someone right after says, “Party party party” like they’ve just had an adverse effect with a downer and you know it in your bones to be true. You let the techno music and the intermittent explosion sound effects rain down upon you as you experience two teaser minutes of what is sure to be the best, if not only reality show, about the inner workings of a famous gay bar there ever was.
And not just any famous gay bar. This is The Abbey, baby — the gayest gay bar in America, live from the City of Angels.
Rumor has it that people who frequent The Abbey in real life have no idea who any of these employees featured in the show are. Curious! Maybe the staff who the people who frequent the Abbey in real life do remember were all on vacation when this was filming, and also maybe the people who frequent The Abbey in real life just go on different days than when this cast is working. No matter, this show is destined for greatness.
Some standout moments sure to go over well with everyone:
“I’m a lesbian. I’ve never had a dick in me.”
Main relationship arcs are two straight couples.
Accompanying the storyline of a gay man and his lesbian best friend having a baby together, a scene at the “doctor’s office” where a “nurse” says “one ejaculation” as she hands the gay man a specimen cup, as in, “One ejaculation, please.”
Sassy grandma who loves talking about sex. (Guess what? In fashion, one day you are in, and the next day you’re are out — and sassy grandmas who love talking about sex are out!!!!!)
The only lesbian couple on the show is getting – yes, yes, y’all, say it with me – married.
Maybe one gay man with a shirt on.
