Babylon. Mike has entered Babylon's Back Room of Hot Sex. You know, blue-lit young men engaged in various simulated acts of which Jerry Falwell would not approve. Mike wanders around in a daze, checking out the talent, while men groan in ecstasy all around him. I can't believe I wrote that with a straight face. I turn down the sound, just in case my neighbors can hear. My inner prude always cuts in at least once an episode.
Happy Fun House. Lindsay walks into the living room with a plate of chicken and stops short. Brian is lying on the couch cuddling Gus, tugging at my heartstrings again. Lindsay's touched, and trying to hold back tears. For some unfathomable reason, this moment is ruined by the soundtrack, a song whose lyrics repeat, "Sexy Boy / Sexy Boy." Uh. Excuse me, Mr. DJ Dan Inappropriate? Knock it off.
Back in the Back Room of Hot Sex. Mike starts macking with some guy, while the song goes on. I know, this is what they meant, but still. The Back Room Guy looks Mike over and says, "You're fantastic." Like Brian did. Get it? Just making sure, because sometimes those swings don't hit where they're supposed to. BRG goes down on Mike, as Mike tries to enjoy it. The scene cuts back and forth between Mike at the club and Brian holding the baby. Freaky Friday, indeed.
Grade: B+. Sure, Daphne showed up for two seconds, and Brian only had sex once this week, but he got naked or naked enough, like, three times, and I'll give them points for character development. A couple more episodes of Brian being nice, and I'll probably get used to it. Maybe.
Next show is in two weeks. Mike tells Dr. Dave that he likes him, and Dr. Dave tells Mike that he's adorable, but Dr. Dave still doesn't sound like he means it. Justin's been drawing pictures of Brian naked while Brian's asleep, and that's little creepy, frankly. Brian perches on Mike's lap while he introduces himself to Dr. Dave. They whip it out, but it remains to see which one's bigger. Jennifer sees Brian and Justin together, and is naturally terrified. She tells Debbie that she thinks Brian is going to hurt Justin and asks what she should do. Because Debbie's done such a good job of keeping her own son away from Brian.
