comedy central gay centered character THE OTHER TWO

REALLY ENJOYING this new show. gay guy is too cute, and his "gay" roommante is a hoot

by Anonymousreply 29704/19/2019

I enjoy it a lot, the lead characters are endearing fuck-ups (the sister in particular is a huge hot mess) and I like the fact that while they’re a little bewildered by their tween brother’s success, they love him and are proud of him. Same with Molly Shannon’s mom character — she loves all three of her kids.

And you’re right, OP, the roommate is a hottie and steals all his scenes.

It will never become a huge classic, but it was a very enjoyable diversion. While I enjoy the sister's character she overwhelms everything so far in the first two episodes. For me at least I need more of the very hot roommate, who wasn't even mentioned in the second episode, and Cary the gay brother whom it appears the story is suppose to revolve around and more of Wanda Sykes.

I was pleased by the gay kiss in the first episode, and the two jack-off scenes (no they don't actually show cock but kudos for fitting in two jack-off scenes in a half hour comedy) I am hoping for more gay kissing rather than just a quick kiss in the restroom of a bar. I will be watching it again.

Oh, not a fan of Molly Shannon it would be nice if she could develop a new persona and not play the same person in every roll she does. Thankfully her roll isn't huge.

Molly Shannon probably got the mom role because she was in Other People written and directed by Chris Kelly. The movie was based on Kelly's real life experiences with his mother's illness and later death and also how he dealt with homophobic parents. I totally recommend it.

When I tried R5's link it asked me to sign in with my cable provider, which I have but at this link below it asked me no such thing, so hopefully those of you without cable can view it here. I had not seen this episode only the first two episodes listed on IMDb.

It starts out looking like an episode of the Today Show but don't be fooled it is actually the pilot of The Other Two.

I was put off from watching this show because I wasn't interested in seeing the birth of a Justin Bieber-wannabe's career or the lives of his sad-sack siblings who were jealous of his success.

But I finally watched the first few episodes on demand and really liked it. The young kid is not irritating and the series is not heavily focused on him anyway. The older gay brother (bonus points: played by a self-described "queer actor") could have been the stuff of several gawd-awful Datalounge threads and are played for laughs in the show. "My Straight Roommate is Coming onto Me- Should I Go for It?" The standard DL reply of "This will end in tears" seems to be the eventual answer here, too.

Watch it, if you have the time. There are so few good network series with major gay characters.

R16, I think you are onto something, as I got DL vibes from the show with the Beiber-like story line. I wonder if they are going to delve into the his bearding or trans claims that DL obsessed about at one time. I kind got a weird vibe from the manage storyline though... Molly was funny. I like the show.

I fucking LOVE this show. The "straight" roommate is hottie Andrew Ridings who was, in his young twink years, on ALL MY CHILDREN for a few months as JR Chandler. He played the role between out actor Jonathan Bennett and closet case Jacob Young.

He was pretty awful on AMC and I'd never predicted he'd ever act again, but he's worked pretty steadily over the years. He appears to be straight, has a cute wife. I think he is HOT and is just the ambiguous type I would have fallen for when I was in my 20s--so, perfect casting!

(Oh , and I LOVE Molly Shannon, and OTHER PEOPLE was amazing.)

Not gay - bisexual according to a recent reddit AMA and a Slate podcast but he hasn't been very clear about the subject and maybe that is why his sexuality hasn't been featured as a part of the PR rollout for the show. The emphasis has been on the out gay former SNL writer who co-created and writes the show but not so much on Tarver - even in the Advocate advertorial for the show, there was a vague reference to casting gay actors but no specific reference to Tarver. Considering the Advocate wrote an entire article about a straight actor confessing to fooling around one time with a guy in high school as somehow representing a brave new wave of bisexual/fluidity, you know they would have made him the "out male bisexual" posterboy but I get the feeling he isn't all that comfortable with the subject. When I googled his name and bisexual, the only thing that came up was an odd reddit thread claiming that he was engaged to another female UCB comic but the only evidence was an instagram post that I could never find. If he is indeed engaged to a woman, that might explain the mystery.

I watched the panel discussion of the show on YouTube. They panel includes the two SNL creators of the show and the two lead actors. Fred Armisen is the panel discussion leader.

It is revealed (no specific spoilers) that the comedy series takes a turn around episode 8, maybe into something dramatic. The panel won't say anything specific. But this show is not a 100% light comedy series.

Heléne said something interesting about her character. She said that her character doesn't realize that she is one of "The Other Two." Her character sees her older gay brother as struggling and maybe a loser, but she thinks she and her younger brother are doing great, even though she's actually as fucked up as Cary. Anyway, that's how she's playing it.

Here's the preview for Thursday's episode. Cary's younger pop-star brother releases a viral video "My Brother's Gay."

by Anonymousreply 6202/13/2019

In this article, Drew Tarver talks about his queerosity--

[quote] When I read the script, I was like, "Oh, this feels like some real queer issues that I haven't seen.” It’s not as shied-away from. There's straight-up kissing. There's masturbation to men. I needed to see this on TV as a queer person growing up. This is very important and exciting for me to get a chance to do this. And I've dealt with, in my real life, internalized homophobia that I think Cary is going through and trying to figure out.

I wonder if he was semi-forced to talk about his bisexuality to ward off accusations that a straight man was taking another gay person's job.

The Other Two's next episode is Thursday at 10:30 pm EST on Comedy Central.

That interview is all over the place - you can tell the "reporter" emailed some generic questions and cut and pasted the replies. You can tell the reporter wanted to play up the gay vs bi angle with the evil privileged biphobic gays oppressing the poor virtuous bisexuals but Tarver to his credit didn't take the bate. It sounds like he is still dealing with some internalized homophobia as he avoids any details of his personal life - does he a boyfriend? There is an entire reddit thread speculating that he is engaged to a woman so who knows. His answers were so generic - the only thing we really learned is that he watched that Brit bisexuality series and then everything is bi-phobia and bi-erasure, etc.

And using Queer as some kind of universal identity just papers over significant life differences, especially between bi and gay men. Heterosexuality is still privileged and that will always cause a conflict between those men who only have sexual and romantic relationships with other men and those who lead basically a heterosexual life except for sex with men on the side. The only thing we have in common is homophobia - or is that biphobic?

My problem with the latest episode is that they’re sort of writing Cary at a level of integrity higher than he should be for the show to work. The sister occupies the same moral (or amoral) universe as the show business people which made her story tonight more amusing, while Cary’s seemed like something from a more serious or earnest show. What made Difficult People or Always Sunny was that both stars or all five stars are at the same level of awfulness.

I love how maturely that lusting after the straight/closeted guy situation was dealt with. It's all fun and games until you start catching on that internalized homophobia and the desire to "pass" as straight. That scene should be linked to every time a thread about chasing after a straight guy appears here on DL.

The little exchange at the end when that guy responded with disgust after Cary had said "Thanks" was some really biting commentary. You rarely see subtle gay interaction like that in other mainstream comedies. And that agent treating Cary as her newest pet fag hit close to home.

r80 That actor basically has no upper lip so the BJ was most likely toothy in addition to being dry. Still, I'll miss seeing his bod going forward. They could make him come out and start dating a hot gay guy who constantly hangs around the apartment, but I think that would take away from Cary's growth. On the other hand, the roommate should do whatever the fuck he wants with his life.

by Anonymousreply 8802/15/2019

I get a weird vibe from the actor playing Cary - there are short segments after the show online where the two writers and the two main actors provide some behind the scenes commentary and the guy who plays Cary is very coy about his sexuality. He mentions internalized homophobia at one point but at such an abstract level that it almost seems like scripted irony. I read somewhere that he only came out at 27 but claims he was never hiding anything and that his attraction to men is a recent development. In the clip below after the pilot aired, the all talk about how similar they are in real life to the show but he talks about having a sort of famous sister but never mentions the obvious. In a later segment he vaguely talks about "queer" actors but never in the first person...odd.

by Anonymousreply 8902/15/2019

I don't find Cary to be very attractive and his neediness doesn't help. He should have been grateful the hunky roommate wanted to experiment with him. He'd never get another guy as hot as him.

by Anonymousreply 9002/16/2019

While the sister has her moments, her un-self aware crassness relegates her to side show status. Cary may have his flaws but he is definitely smarter and has more of a moral compass. To reject the handsome roommate who he rightfully knew was only using him was smart and self-protective.

by Anonymousreply 9102/16/2019

I think the latest episode is very entertaining, but also telling. That rollercoaster of Cary wanting the clip to be taken down one moment and then letting it stay online the next shows how fickle he (and the media industry itself represented by Wanda's character Shuli Kucerac) is. Also the scene at the end where his response, to his colleague not knowing he was gay when they worked together, was a bit too enthusiastic was hilarious and telling. That awkward moment afterwards was priceless. Craig standing up for himself and pushing his roommate away was pretty epic (yeah, Mary!) given that it's a brand new show that hasn't even established itself yet.

There apparently has been some chatter online about Tarver’s sexuality, this is also being discussed in his own separate thread

He was discovered by CBS in a talent showcase in which he participated as an LGBT member, and is criticized in the Deadline article because someone knew him as having had a girlfriend. Other people chimed in to defend him and allude to only recently having come out.

My personal opinion is this: many people who pursue careers in front of the camera in show business are very, very ambitious and usually around high school have already developed a self-image centered around being bound for stardom (Lea Michelle’s character in Glee is a good example). So the idea of Drew being someone who did not identify as gay or bi for a long time and then comes out and vaults to the head of the line in this showcase while not being completely comfortable publicly with his sexuality, fits to me this profile of the ambitious ingenue.

by Anonymousreply 9302/16/2019

Here's a Youtube video from 2016 where Drew Tarver plays a character, Drew, who talks about his new gay relationship. The title of this comedy routine is "When Your Whore Friend Gets Into a Relationship."

I don't know when he discovered he was gay-ish or bi, but it appears he's been very gay-friendly for a while.

by Anonymousreply 9402/16/2019

r95 That UCB/alt-comedy crowd is very gay friendly so it is strange that he would have been closeted so long or that the other gays wouldn't have suspected. He was in a longterm relationship with a soap actress so that might have delayed his coming out (There is reference to his IG post from Oct. 2014 saying Happy 10th anniversary to Levin Rambin (now deleted) but there is also her IG post from Nov 2013 with his picture captioned as ex-boyfriend so who knows). He had to be out on some level on Feb of 2014 because he won the CBS diversity award for an LGBT that year. I think he is 33 so if he came out at 26 that would be around 2012.

He obviously friends with Michael Henry and appeared in one of his videos so you would think he would be more upfront about his sexuality but the same rules don't seem to apply to bisexuals. They get a pass for being in the closet because apparently gays are so mean to them that they cower in fear of being evicted, fired (not that many would have gay bosses but never let logic get in the way of self-pity) or beaten up by those roving packs of militant biphobic gays! I kid but you would assume as much according to bisexual activists - they spend much more time berating gays than straights and invoke biphobia to effectively exempt themselves from any responsibility in working against homophobia and heterosexism.. Why would they - heterosexuality has its privileges and since 90 % of them end up in straight relationships, their interests align much more with the heterosexual majority than with the homos. Anyway, we are constantly told that sexuality is so fluid these days, no one is really gay or straight so problem solved! The Advocate puts a male/female couple on the cover - a lesbian no less married to a man - and deems it the more "queer" than actual same sex couples. But you can't object without being denounced as a privileged cisgendered man! If you didn't know any better, you would assume it was some devious plot by evangelical christians to undermine the gay rights movement from within. Of course that is just a crazy conspiracy theory but we live in bizarre times - who would have ever thought that the FBI would run a counter-intelligence operation against a newly elected president under suspicion of being a Russian asset!

r108, agree to disagree. I think if they were both crass like the sister, it would get old fast. The brother is more is the more centered of the two, and I in no way find it difficult to have them co-exist in the same universe. I don't see the comparison with Daniel and Alexis apt at all.

by Anonymousreply 11502/22/2019

Schitt Creek's Daniel and Alexis come from the same level of entitlement and adapt to their new non-glamorous lives in a rather similar way (Oh! How quaint is that! Look at me, I'm doing something totally mundane!).

Brooke and Cary approach life in their own, individual way even though they both try to make it in the entertainment industry. Brooke is more cynical and ruthless and Cary is more whiny, shy, and self righteous.

In all seriousness, there's nothing wrong with talking about the messages in this show, especially because we don't really have (mainstream) sitcoms with gay leads that go beyond stereotypes. So some of us are excited to break it down more than we usually would with other similar shows. That's not "bringing politics into it", you privileged frau cow. Besides, the creators of this show have been writing sketches for SNL for years now and if you think there has never been any social commentary in those, you've been watching the wrong show.

Last night’s episode was the first I’ve really laughed at since episode three, but I think Difficult People is much superior show, although Helene York is a much better actress than Julie Klausner. DP dealt with serious matters in a much more fluid manner whereas on this show, the dramatic turns feel like authentic.

Starving yourself for a full day in case you might have sex in the evening is ridiculous and will reduce your muscle mass and fuck up your blood sugar levels in the long run. But of course that was written comedically; it wasn't an endorsement of this practice.

I think the showrunners were referring to the last scene when they said they had to do it three or four times and Drew was able to cry on cue without menthol every time.

Cary is slowly morphing into something awful but I guess that's inevitable when you're in showbiz.

WRONG R155. That’s exactly what this is. Let me tell how this thread is gonna go...

Instead of talking about the quality of the show, this thread will devolve into an “IS Tarver is gay or straight” drama, but he won’t be gay enough for some of you and not straight enough for the rest of you. Someone will cyberstalk him and then keep us updated on his online friends and family (only the cute ones tho). Someone will crawl out of the woodwork proclaiming a friend of a friend saw Tarver at a Singer/Spacey twink party 10 years ago. Then the usual DL gargoyles will jump in with the requisite critique of Tarver’s appearance as if he’s some goddamn porn star or something. Someone will go into the history of queers on TV while mentioning some gay character from the 80s blahblahblahhhhhhh 400 replies later.

Because of DL's format it's not really that evident, but you can have different topics in one thread. If posters discussing one particular topic (like, "IS Tarver is gay or straight") bothers you so much you can put these posters on ignore and focus on appreciating the discussion about the show. Any other approach would force you to come off as unhinged hall monitor trying to control the conversation (and posters posting their disapproval of you trying to be a hall monitor) and that also derails from actually discussing the show.

Two things. So, nobody knew that he couldn't sing live after all this time? And, they were promoting it as his "live" debut, but hasn't he done concerts or shows before the VMAs, so they just admitted to the world that he normally lip-syncs at his appearances?

Have you ever heard Miley Cyrus sing live? Worse than a karaoke singer.

Funny end to a delightful first season

Looking forward to season 2

I am curious how they can get a second season out of the premise especially since the kid wants to go to college and give up his fame? Without him there's no other two.

I hate the sister. Why do they have to make her be such a nasty bitch all the time?

R269 I took the end shot to mean that Molly Shannon’s mom character was going to be a famous talk show host and they would be overshadowed again, The Other Two.

Just finished watching the finale. Enjoyed it a lot, especially Streeter.

I'm a fan of the show. It's not perfect -- even though it's meant to be a parody of a pop star's life, it has some issues with basic realism (such as the fact that no family members realized Chase couldn't sing before now). That said, I find the premise of exploring the lives of the relatives of a famous person intriguing; I find the jokes funny more often than not; I find the supporting characters hilarious; and I find Drew Tarver massively adorable.

I'll definitely be checking it out when it returns. I don't understand some people on here saying they're giving up after one season. Lots of shows try to find their footing in their first season. Here we have a show with a gay showrunner and gay lead, a rarity on TV, and some people can't stop taking shots at it. Let's give it a chance, huh?

[quote] I don't understand some people on here saying they're giving up after one season.

It's mostly people who only watch tv shows/movies for the male 'eye candy' and don't care much about the story, jokes etc. Sadly, there's quite a few of them

Or maybe the show just sucks?

by Anonymousreply 27403/31/2019

R273 OR maybe people's lives don't revolve around mediocre TV shows. Sadly, there's quite a few of them.

Meanwhile, RIP Broad City. But there's no gay white characters played by straight men, so you guys probably don't watch it.

by Anonymousreply 27603/31/2019

r276 RIP Broad City, indeed. I stopped posting in that thread a year or so ago because there was simply no interest in it from others. But the last season was outrageously strong, on par with the first one. Most shows only wish they could go out on such a strong note.

I'll watch the second season of this show, of course. Even though I don't like the fact that Josh Segarra might not return one bit.

One thing I don't get is Chase is 14 and has already been accepted to NYU? Did he finish high school already? Doesn't he still have 3-4 years to go?

by Anonymousreply 27803/31/2019

^^^ In an earlier episode the sister learned that Chase had completed high school on Streeter’s phone, which he was shown doing multiple choice test questions on previously.

by Anonymousreply 27903/31/2019

I like the show quite a bit, too. Not perfect, but well worth the time invested.

The best parts of Season 1 to me were when Cary was interacting with his "straight" roommate. So uncomfortable yet sexy, and very funny in an OMG! way.

by Anonymousreply 28104/02/2019

Broad city is he funniest show around, R276. Those women are masters of anti-comedy. While I wish I had more seasons to enjoy, it’s going out on a strong note which is the best thing.

by Anonymousreply 28204/02/2019

Josh Segarra is not returning for the second season? Why?!

by Anonymousreply 28304/05/2019

Hopefully it's because he was cast in another show.

by Anonymousreply 28404/05/2019

No one confirmed Josh is leaving. The poster above just suggested he might be leaving because he declined to get back together with the Brooke character in the season finale. Of course, he can always change his mind. Doubt they'll get rid of him; I saw when he guested on the after show and the creators/cast clearly like him a lot.

by Anonymousreply 28504/05/2019

He was cast in Rupaul's upcoming Netflix series as his boyfriend R284

by Anonymousreply 28604/05/2019

Really good show.

by Anonymousreply 28704/06/2019

Agree that the final episode was disappointing. Hopefully it will rally and improve again for season 2. Drew is so adorable!

by Anonymousreply 28804/06/2019

I was really surprised at how opposite Josh Segarra's personality and demeanor are in real life (as seen on the after-show specifically) than his character.

I'd love to see outtakes and bloopers from this show; they must be hysterical.

by Anonymousreply 28904/07/2019

Segara is gay right? When he was on the Comedy Central after show for like the 3rd or 4th episode, he talked about going on a family vacation to Disney World when he was a kid and it was Pride weekend and how he surrounded by all these gorgeous men - could he have telegraphed it any more?

by Anonymousreply 29004/07/2019

Was it this video R290?

by Anonymousreply 29104/07/2019

r291 Yes - he is very likeable...

by Anonymousreply 29204/07/2019

I'm not saying that Josh Segarra isn't gay, but he is married to a woman with a kid.

by Anonymousreply 29304/07/2019

BROAD CITY had one of the best series finales ever.

by Anonymousreply 29404/07/2019

No r290. He is a married straight dude with a child.

The actor who plays Carey was somewhat featured in last night's Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He was a bit dry and robotic; not as funny as he is on The Other Two.
