Today I found myself watching something I had never heard of. Something different, something fun, something a bit raunchy and a lot gay. While visiting a friend today she introduced me to a television channel that I really must have in my life now that I know about it. Said amazing channel is Logo TV and that nifty hyperlink will take you to the homepage of Logo TV where you can watch full episodes of their programs. All of which seem to be edgy yet classic. Original ideas that are fit for today’s times. I feel as though this channel is the birth child of Perez Hilton and Comedy Central, with MTV and E! as the child’s god parents. And I love it.
While I only watched 1 Girl 5 Gays today, I did see commercials for their other programming that looked to be amazeballs as well. Especially Felt. Felt is based off of personal, real-life couple therapy, but their identities are concealed in an unusual manner. Instead of blurring their faces or warping their voices, the couples are portrayed with PUPPETS! PUPPETS I SAY! If you’re an avid reader of my blog (and let’s face it, you’re probably not) I freaking LOVE PUPPETS. But not in some weird way. I just enjoy the Muppets okay? There’s nothing weird about cuddling up on the couch and watching 3 or 4 or 7 episodes of The Muppet Show in a row with your boyfriend. I don’t have a problem okay?
Anyways, about the actual show that I watched. 1 Girl 5 Gays is a talk show that has one constant host, Aliya-Jasmine Sovani, the 1 girl (recently replaced by Lauren Collins, who is who I watched), who is asking 5 rotating gay men about pop culture, love, and sex. They keep the 22 minute show flowing quickly because they have 20 questions to get through each episode. Most of that is thanks to a good editor and fun, clever, quirky opening segments for new questions. For instance, one question was something similar to “How do you feel after having sex twice in a row in one setting” and the short video before that segment was of a ketchup bottle squirting out two loads of tomato juice on a hamburger. Who do I contact to be a part of the creative team that comes up with those videos? Because I think we may be a perfect fit. If you read this, call me, I’ve got some ideas up my selves.
The show is sassy good fun, and you can catch some full episodes right here. Just click that hyperlink and you’ll be on your way to some good old fashion Candy TV. You may be asking yourself what Candy TV (trademark) is. Well it’s TV that you crave, TV that you’ll binge on, TV that you may not want your friends to realize you watch, TV where you may regret watching 4-8 episodes in a row. So be careful when you click that link. Beware of what your getting yourself into. I was not.
