Eye for the Straight Guy is fab-u-lous. We watched out first episode
this morning (while I languished on the couch with a headache), and it
was great. Haven’t seen it? Ok, these five gay guys, each with a
diffferent specialty (there’s the host/personal grooming guy, fashion
consultant, food guy, and decorators) take on a poor boorish breeder
(best gay insult ever) and turn them into fashion-conscious renaissance
men by showing them that there are finer things in life than fast food
and Wal-Mart deck chairs.
The guy on this episode was so into it. He was trying to do something
nice for his wife, who was tired of his old t-shirts, poor personal
grooming and their mess of a house. She went away, and the
fairy-god-queers (they call themselves the Fab Five, and they are faboo)
went to work, teaching poor Adam all about spa treatments, cooking,
furniture and keeping it together. While there were moments of really
funny cattiness, the five guys were there to help (unlike the
mean-spirited American version of What Not To Wear), and were
overjoyed at the progress Adam made.
It was funny, cute and educational… It’s definitely going on the
Season Pass list! Oh, and yeah, I should probably apply to be a victim
on the show. I could use the help.
