"Harley and Ivy" (January 18, 1993) In GEE’s first bonus episode, Glen and Drew focus on something that's not a sitcom but is nonetheless pretty damn gay — the Batman: The Animated Series installment that put a lesbianish aura around Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, which extended to the comics and ultimately made the duo a full-fledged couple years later.

No, this is not a deep dive into Paul Lynde’s most salacious innuendos. Instead, GEE is bidding farewell for a few weeks because Drew is heading to Japan, and we thought it would be cool to do an episode based around classic sitcom trivia, and Drew is hosting while Glen is pitted against special guest contestants Tony Rodriguez (who has guested before!) and Katherine Spiers (who hasn’t!). It’s fun, we swear, if not *actually* all that gay. Katherine’s podcast, Smart Mouth Tony’s podcast, Spanish Aquí Presents  Support us on Patreon!

“The Chief’s Gay Evening” (November 13, 1982) Though beloved to a certain age range of 1980s babies, Gimme a Break doesn’t get its due praise for its “serious issue” episodes. This one, in which the Chief finds out that one of his officers is gay, handles the subject matter better than many more-acclaimed sitcoms would in the years that followed. In fact, our only complaint is that this series sole gay-themed episode doesn’t feature enough Nell Carter, whom we will remind you was a star. We miss you, Nell. Support us on Patreon!

“Elaine’s Strange Triangle” (December 10, 1980) Elaine is digging her new boyfriend, but it turns out her new boyfriend is also digging Tony. This, the first episode to address the subject of bisexuality, is often a more thoughtful and nuanced exploration of straight characters’ discomfort around anything queer… but then Tony and Alex go to a gay bar and the episode takes a hard turn.

“Rebecca’s Lover... Not” (April 23, 1992): Gayest Episode Ever kicks its hiatus into the gutter with the first installment of it second season. And yes, we’re back in Boston with Cheers, but it’s a very different show in its tenth season and featuring not Shelley Long but Kirstie Alley as the barmaid having to address her feelings about homosexuality. Harvey Fierstein guest stars in an episode that has connections to both She-Ra and Fright Night, and that makes for a big gay win.

“Vince Meat” (February 22, 2020) Have you seen that one Golden Girls where Blanche accidentally sexes a man to death and the girls have to hide the body? Well, your answer should be no, because that episode didn’t air back in the day. It's a script written by our own Glen Lakin and then, for the purposes of this episode, read by a host of our actor friends. It’s fucked-up and funny, and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate our fiftieth episode.

“The Ballad of the Betty Lou” (November 27, 1963) In this shorter episode, Gayest Episode Ever is looking at The Dick Van Dyke Show, a beloved series that is never explicitly gay but it occasionally features some implicitly gay elements — and may also once made a semen joke.

“There’s Always Room for Cello” (December 14, 1990) What smells like Wario + Newman + extra farts? It’s Roy Biggins, the chuckling villain of Wings, an NBC sitcom that is a solid B but which has a reputation for being a C minus. In the second season, Roy’s son came out and Roy was given — and totally biffed — a chance to act like a grown-up. Jonathan Bradley Welch, host of that *other* gay TV podcast, A Special Presentation, is on hand to discuss growing up in Massachusetts, the charms of Crystal Bernard and which Hackett brother is hotter.

“Emmet’s Secret” (December 6, 1995) and “Emmett, We Hardly Knew Ye” (December 20, 1995) Even those of us who came of age in the 1990s might be surprised to find out how big a deal Grace Under Fire was in its day. The show was a huge hit, and even if it burned too bright and too quickly, it deserved its popularity because it was funnier and more heartfelt than a lot of longer-lived TV series. In this installment, we talk about two consecutive episodes that outed Grace’s father-in-law and then killed him off. It’s not boring. Because it never hurts to point it out, the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline is 1 (800) 723-8255. There's also an online chat option.

“The Impossible Dream” (October 15, 1996) The finale to the second season of GEE begins how the first one began: with Frasier. Two years after the episode that said, “No, Frasier isn’t gay,” the show backed up a little and asked “But what would you say if he was maybe?” Also it’s revealed that Gil Chesterton has a more toned chest than any of us would have expected.

“Acting Out” (February 22, 2000) In this episode, Drew tries really hard not to not trample your warm, fuzzy feelings about Will & Grace. But even if you don’t think this show lands its jokes often enough, you can’t argue that it did a lot to increase the visibility of gays — white, male, metropolitan, wordplay-loving gays.

“The Outing” (February 11, 1993) Seinfeld won a GLAAD award for this episode all about how even the most well-meaning straight people would be horrified to be mistaken for gay. It helped popularize “not that there’s anything wrong with that” and, to a lesser extent, “single, thin and neat” as 90s-era gay catchphrases and also managed to spin a whole half-hour with minimal presence of actual LGBT characters. Emelie Burnette, copy editor to the stars, joins Glen and Drew to talk about what this episode gets right, as well as Veronica Mars’ enduring legacy, seeing Larry David in the men’s room, a rapper whose name sounds like Queef Latina, and why Elaine refuses to take off her coat.  Support us on Patreon!

"My Brother's Keeper (January 13, 1973) Actor and comedian Sam Pancake joins Glen and Drew to talk about this third-season episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, in which the last-minute revelation that Phyllis' brother is gay gets the biggest laugh of the show. That said, this is a sweet take on a gay episode that aired when most sitcoms didn't do them. Topics discussed include Bridget Loves Bernie, "Ode to Billy Joe," Murder by Death, the theme song to Phyllis' spinoff and how Gavin MacLeod's character sure seems kinda gay.  Support us on Patreon!

“The One Where Nana Dies Twice” (November 10, 1994) Hey, have you heard about this show called Friends that’s about people who are friends? Emelie Burnette returns to talk about how the first gayish outing of this landmark sitcom gets some things right, some things wrong. We don’t settle the “Is Friends homophobic or transphobic?” debates but we do at least find an answer to the “Is Rachel Green Jewish?” debate?  “Homophobic Friends,” compiled by Tijana Mamula Why Friends is “Hugely Transphobic,” by Samantha Riedel:  Emily Nussbaum’s tweets defending Friends against charges that it’s homophobic “Is Rachel Green Jewish?” by Lindsey Weber  Check out A Love Bizarre, downtown Los Angeles’ new queer art space Support us on Patreon!

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (March 1, 1994) Roseanne's kiss with Mariel Hemingway wasn't the first instance of liplock between two women on American TV, but it was the most controversial. More than two decades later, Glen and Drew talk about this episode and how it discusses sexual gray areas, how Laurie Metcalf's Aunt Jackie always seemed kinda lesbian-y and why Roseanne was a pioneer for LGBT diversity... even if she's crazy now.

“Frank & Son” (October 18, 1991) Is Step By Step a classic sitcom? Glen says yes, but Drew says no. Listen to an episode that a different podcast that prompted us to examine paternal homophobia and a long-running but perhaps non-classic TGIF sitcom, which Drew prefers to shorthand as “shitbag Brady Bunch.” Listen to the episode of You’re Making It Worse that inspired this episode.

A veteran sitcom writer, Stan Zimmerman is one half of the duo that penned the script for “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the episode of Roseanne in which the main character is kissed by a lesbian. In this interview, Stan talks about the process of writing that episode and riding through the controversy surrounding it, but he also offers behind-the-scenes insight from his time on Golden Girls, the gay-centric Showtime series Brothers, his efforts to get his sitcom project Silver Foxes on a screen near you and the role he played in getting RuPaul the role of Miss Cummings the guidance counselor in The Brady Bunch Movie.  Read Drew's interview with Golden Girls writers Support us on Patreon!

“The Cheever Letters” (October 28, 1992) Poor Susan Ross. If she only knew what her association with George Constanza would ultimately cost her, she would have run screaming. Early in the show’s fourth season, Susan got a glimpse of what George was capable of when he indirectly caused her dad to be outed — if not as gay then at least certainly as a one-time lover of John Cheever. Mike Ciriaco joins Glen and Drew to discuss how this episode is a Seinfeld sleeper classic, both because of and in spite of how nonchalantly it deals with Mr. Ross’s sexuality.  If you haven’t yet, please give us a rate & review on iTunes.

Happy Friday! Or maybe just tolerable Friday. Since everything sucks, we decided to give you an extra episode this week: a Patreon exclusive that we decided the general audience might want to listen to in case you’re needing extra entertainment. We’re still giving you a regular episode this next coming Wednesday, but meanwhile please enjoy this.  America or burst! For most of us ’80s babies, Perfect Strangers is a quintessential sitcom of the era — it looked ’80s, it had a perfect ’80s opening theme, and like so many situation comedies aimed at families, it was maybe not the most ambitious show in terms of jokes and plots. However, there’s also a lot there that reads as a little gay. In fact, Drew and Glen even dream up various ways a reboot could double-down on this queer element. Listen to the two “lost” episodes that SoundCloud took offline but which are live again since we migrated to Libsyn: Everyone Loves Raymond’s Possibly Gay Brother and Rebecca Howe Suffers From Gay Blindness.

Do you ever feel like some songs have too many words? Well, good news: instrumental music eliminates that very problem! In this episode, Drew and Glen each list off five sitcom theme songs that they think are good despite their glaring lack of lyrics. Spoiler: many of them actually do have lyrics, it turns out. But still! If you like this episode, you may also like Singing Mountain, Drew’s other podcast, which works a lot like this but with video game music. There’s even an episode with Glen! Watch Fatal Farm’s alternate intros for Doogie Howser, M.D. and Dynasty. Hamburger Penis as Alexis! Yes, Dick Van Dyke really was rescued by porpoises. Here’s the Tiny Toons parody of The Dick Van Dyke Show opening. Because it never hurts to point it out, the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline is 1 (800) 723-8255. There's also an online chat option. Here is the “Suicide Is Painless” scene from the movie version of M*A*S*H. And here is the interview with Johnny Mandel about the creation of the song. Is it possible that M83’s “Midnight City” is in any way a reference to ALF? No? Okay. Secret lyrics! Specifically to The Munsters, I Dream of Jeannie and The Andy Griffith Show. The possible (probable) inspiration for the Futurama theme is the 1967 song “Psyché Rock” by Pierre Henry. There is also a Fatboy Slim remix of that “Psyché Rock” that sounds even closer to the Futurama theme, but it was released in 2000, after the debut of Futurama. And here is the interview with composer Christopher Tyng where he doesn’t cite “Psyché Rock” as a direct inspiration. Buy Glen’s movie, Being Frank. Support us on Patreon!

This episode’s outro track is “Won’t You Help Me” by Yanguru, which Drew picked because it sounds like the closing credits of ever 80s movie ever.
“The Apartment” (November 9, 1979) And now for something slightly different. Katherine Spiers, TableCakes CEO and our first-ever heterosexual guest, joins Drew and Glen to talk about the British sitcom Are You Being Served? and in particular its resident homo Mr. Humphries. It’s also our first remote guest, because this was recorded during pandemic times, so please forgive the fact that this outing has less-than-optimal sound quality. We will do better next time. If you can hang with Zoom-level audio, there’s some interesting talk about how sitcoms play out across the pond. Shop at Smellbent, a queer-owned, L.A.-based cologne house.

“As the Will Turns” (April 10, 1995) This is as close to a gay episode as Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ever got. And while it’s not necessarily the funniest piece of TV ever, it makes for a hell of a discussion of Will Smith’s personal life. This episode has some weird parallels with actual events in Will Smith, real-life actor. We’d say it’s unprecedented for a rapper-turned-actor to seemingly confront rumors about their sexuality in a network sitcom, but it plays out remarkably similar to the Living Single with the Queen Latifah parallels we did last season. Special thanks to patron Erin Hardy for recommending this episode! Shop at Smellbent, a queer-owned, L.A.-based cologne house.

If you were unable to hear the clips in today’s episode, Maude Goes to a Gay Bar, there’s something you can do to avoid this problem in the future. If you *were* able to hear the clips, then you’re good. Go play outside. If the episode would go silent every time Drew and Glen would cut away, then the problem is that you need to get on the new RSS feed. To do this, do one of two things: 1) In whatever app you listen to GEE on, unsubscribe and then re-subscribe. 2) If that doesn’t work, then copy and paste the URL for the new feed into the search field or ‘Add URL’ field and you should be good. Here is that feed. Sorry for this! It’s all SoundCloud’s fault, we swear. If you have any further troubles, hit us up, either on social media or at gayestepisodeever@gmail.com and we’ll sort it out.
“The Competition” (February 13, 1987) Yes, we did do an episode last year in which we summed up Mr. Belvedere are a whole and said it never did an outright gay episode. We were wrong, and thanks to two different listers who politely exposed our ignorance, this week you are getting Drew and Glen talking about the one where Heather convinces her boyfriend he’s gay and Mr. Belvedere convinces him he’s not. It’s a weird bit of TV, but it’s also one of the very few family-focused sitcoms of this era to actually acknowledge that gay people exist. Also you can listen to the previous Mr. Belvedere outing, but also maybe don’t because this one is good enough to just replace the original? Christopher Hewett stars as King Koopa in Super Mario Bros. on Ice. Watch GEE TV to see the episode of 227 with Pee-Wee Herman. Enjoy the opening credits to Land of the Giants.

This episode’s outro theme is “Balla Balla Ballerina” by Tony Manero, which isn’t on any of the music streaming services or digital music stores, as near as Drew can find, so just listen to it on YouTube, I guess?
“Gender Reveal” (April 12, 2018) This week, Glen and Drew are joined by Karen Tongson, chair of the Gender and Sexuality Studies department at USC and the co-host of the Gen X pop culture podcast Waiting to X-Hale. We asked Karen what show she’d most like to discuss, and she chose Superstore, the current NBC ensemble comedy. Not only does it have a queer Asian lead character, but as Karen points out, there’s a lot of ambient queerness on the show, in addition to one of the more diverse casts on a sitcom today. Watch Smack the Pony, the all-female British sketch comedy show Drew is always trying to get you to watch. Lauren Ash’s performance as Scorpia on the new She-Ra is a wonderful, wonderful thing. The phenomenon of melon babies, however, is decidedly not wonderful. Buy Gayest Episode Ever shirts, totes and more on our TeePublic page. Buy Glen’s movie, Being Frank. Support us on Patreon!
