    new tv show; The Real ONeals

    not nice to see another TV show depicting someone's bigger than life opinion.

    very loosely based on the childhood experiences of Dan Savage.


    better than watching the republican debates.

    I think Donald Trumps rallies have all three of these covered.

    Saw it. What year is this supposed to be set in? Because depicting a parent disliking son coming out is so 1990. Yeah, it still happens, but we had Will & Grace, remember? Aren't we past this?

    Tell that to my bf who has been out to his Mormon parents for about a decade and they STILL won't let him bring anyone home for the holidays or to family stuff and who STILL try to pressure him into living a heterosexual lifestyle.

    Are you kidding? Even if the show itself isn't great, it's fantastic holding a mirror up to the christian moronic sheeple. Especially the catholics. They and the their many repukes here in the states have been the biggest anti Gay lobby out there.

    Anytime we can show the true face of christianity, (any and all religions for that matter), it's a great thing!

    From what I saw in teasers, it's just a show about a typical modern Irish-American Catholic family. I'm happy to see more complicated families and characters on TV. I hope that there's ethnic diversity in the cast too.

    I have not watched any episodes, only seen clips. It appears that the gay character is not portrayed in the ultimate flamboyant stereotype. That's a plus. If any of you watched the recent series American Crime, there were two young male characters, both gay, who were portrayed very realistically. At least we have progressed passed the stereotypical flaming queen portrait to some degree.

    One episode, the "F" Word, is outlandish in The Real O'Neals. Being gay (or whatever) is no excuse to punch someone and be able to get away with it as the show depicted. As a former teacher, I don't approve of this. The teenage viewers might watch it and laugh, thinking it is all right to inflict physical pain or spread slander on others because of their orientation. Such is the sad state of "free" TV proliferating the sphere. Youngsters often learn about supposedly "good manners" and sexuality from reading novels, surfing the Net (for free info), and watching TV.
    On the positive side, I like the humor of the actor playing Kenny. But what I can see as a satire, kids and other viewers might not, mistaken what they see as the recipe for an ideal life.

    I watched that series with great amazement! Free TV shows have turned semi-documentary. The show is detailed in bringing in the harsh realities of life not typical of regular TV shows meant to entertain. I wonder if the mainstream TV audience will want to watch shows like this have more like this produced.
