The Big Gay Sketch Show: Season 2
Manufacturer: MTV Brand: ASH,ERICA Model: 3709219
Logoâ€™s The Big Gay Sketch Show is back with another season of groundbreaking sketch comedy series! The eight episodes feature a combination of traditional and music-based sketches, pop culture parodies and recurring characters, all from a unique LGBT perspective. Sketch comedy--all too often dominated by frat-boy humor--gets "queer-eyed" on Logo's The Big Gay Sketch Show. The eight episodes of the second season feature much of what you'd expect: Over-the-top but affectionate impersonations of gay icons like Liza Minnelli and Elaine Stritch; sketches that do little but emphasize the muscular physique of hunky cast member Paolo Andino; and pop-culture parodies in which the characters are now gay lovers (for example, Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz). The show suffers from the same weaknesses as straight comedy shows, like sketches that only have one joke and don't know when to end, woefully dated targets trotted out as if no one had ever made fun of them before (really, how many jokes about bears do we really need?), and recurring characters who could hardly carry one scene to begin with. But at its best, the show veers into surreal goofiness (Maya Angelou reading Craig's List personals as poetry) and bald but still welcome political digs, as well as moments of startling bad taste (a support group for May-December romances that concludes with mass projectile vomiting) that, if nothing else, will linger in your memory. Surprisingly, the best material can be found in the bonu...

The stylish opening credits--featuring wisps of smoke curling sensually up and sideways--declare The Girl's intentions: This is going to be a modern film noir in which compulsive passions lead to violence and disaster. The narrator, dressed in the chic lesbian butch uniform of a dark two-piece suit and a crisp white shirt, has become obsessed with a femme nightclub singer with rapturous long curly hair, known only as the Girl. Despite the Girl's initial reluctance, the two begin an affair, only to have it threatened by a vicious nightclub owner, who feels that the singer is his property. Don't watch The Girl expecting a driving plot; the movie circles around its lovers, letting their evasive conversations and steamy lovemaking (The Girl features a lot of nudity and some fairly explicit sex) tell the tale. The actors and the cinematography are gorgeous. --Bret Fetzer
