Need something to watch and get absolutely addicted right away? Coming this September 11th 2012 at 9:30/8:30c, comes a new show by Ryan Murphy and affiliates called “The New Normal”. It’s a dramatic/comedy sitcom about a Los Angeles gay couple named Bryan and David, who have every aspiration of becoming fathers for the first time. David is the hard-working, mature, relaxed guy who tries to reason and question everything, whilst Bryan is the total opposite. He is very flamboyant and extremely fashionable!
Since they can’t have their own children, they confide in a surrogate mother named Goldie; an aspiring lawyer working as a waitress, who is also the single-mother to an 8-year-old girl named Shania. Shania plays the voice of wisdom to Goldie as she enlightens and opens Goldies eyes to a new and better world where love really conquers all. Although, Goldie lives with her over-bearing, racist and bigoted grandmother, Jane. This tends to cause unwanted drama and tension between her and Goldie as her point-of-view on love and relationships is distorted from bigoted views about gays.
This does not stop Goldie from giving up her body to carrying a baby for the couple, as she reminds them that she is doing this purely for the love and justice of equality. She truly wants to do this for the couple because she knows how badly they want their first child. In return and as thanks, the couple decides to give Goldie a law suit in appreciation and a favour for carrying their child. All in the hopes that it’ll motivate her to keep pursuing and striving for a career in Law.
Ryan Murphy really knows how to create a dynamic and charismatic show with brilliant characters. I know that this show will be a major hit, and dare I say, but I may enjoy this show much more than Glee! Shocker, yes. But the reason for that is, is that this show is portraying a new look at how other families operate in today’s society and how they are discriminated and treated by bigoted minds. I believe if Ryan hits the mark on this show, it’ll change the dynamic of today’s ‘normal’ family. People will be much more accepting and less ignorant to how gay people live life. You know..we want families, to be married and grow old with somebody, too! Someday, there won’t be ‘coming out’.. it’ll just be, “This is who I love” and people won’t judge them for it. I cannot wait for that day. If Ryan Murphy, Gay rights activists, Supporters, Celebrities and other loving people keep pushing for a new normal, then we will see peace for gays everywhere. Finally.
Take a look at this extended preview for The New Normal! You KNOW I’ll be tuning in. It’s going to be an excitible, tear-jerker, romantic and funny roller-coaster ride here, people!
