Info About Local Showing of Buster

O.k. so I ultimately have to sell some advertising in exchange for having seen the show.

Here is some info about a local public showing of the Sugartime episode of Buster:

My reaction to the show?

What's the fuss? Why do we get all fired up over this?

It was great in the sense that the lesbian couple thing was in the background. I mean, that's the point, isn't it? That they are just another family. They were also Jewish and on the show they had a Sabbath dinner. In other words: there are lots of different kinds of families. Blah. Blah. Blah.

But my point about wondering what all the fuss is about, is that I can't figure out why people get so bothered by a show like this when the subtext of the lesbian parents is so insubstantial. I mean, you would almost have to have been looking for it to even notice it. At the beginning, Buster is told that he is going to spend time with a friend of his Mom's and her "partner" and their kids. This is the first innocuous hint of anything somewhat different.

Then, one of the real live kids shows Buster around their house. Again, everything is the same. At one point, she shows Buster some pictures and you see one picture of the lesbian couple together. Whoa. Revolutionary.

J.H.C. What's all the fuss?
