When Two Is Best (Television Thoughts: The Other Two Season One, Comedy Central)

MV5BODcyYjYzMjUtNTg2Yy00OTJlLTlhODgtNTI3NjI5YTFmY2E0XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjA5MDYxODY@._V1_I just finished watching the rest of the first season of ‘The Other Two’ and it is truly the best comedy show I have seen in years. I know I have written about its gay sensibility, but there’s more than that. It’s smart, funny, and topical, and it perfectly frames the times we live in.

  1. First of all, I love that it feature the Instagay generation. I thought it would be easy to make fun of them, but instead they humanize them. When Cary interacts with them, Cary is the freak, and the Instagays are the sane and normal ones. It’s Cary who wants to take advantage of them for his own benefit.
  2. The ‘Call Me By Your Name’ scene is perfection. Drew Tarver is great in that scene, and is the perfect ending to his doomed relationship. And as far as relationships, I really was feeling Brooke and her relationship with her ex, a shoe designer (Josh Segarra) but when the season ended, it seems that both Drew and Brooke are still alone.
  3. And can we talk about how the season ended (I read that the second season has already been greenlit)  Their brother Chase seems to be leaving pop stardom to go to college (!) and I think the show would transition to Brooke and Drew still being the ‘other two’ int he context of their mother having a daytime talk show. That only sets the stage for more hilarity.
