The New Normal - Pilot Review


Ryan Murphy of Glee, Nip/Tuck and American Horror Story fame does it again with this new comedy on NBC, pushing boundaries and breaking new grounds in this series about a gay couple who wants to have a kid.

The New Normal is easily one of the best comedy pilots I've seen from the batch of new shows this Fall. The show is heartwarming, laugh-out-loud funny, and the ending instantly leaves you wanting more. The cast that has been assembled here is also top-notch. Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha play Bryan Buckley and David Murray, the gay couple trying to have a baby. Georgia King portrays Goldie Clemmons, a single mother who agrees to help carry the baby for the two men. Rounding out the cast is Goldie's daughter Shania, a hilarious role portrayed by the young Bebe Wood and Ellen Barkin as Jane Forrest, Goldie's conservative and outspoken mother.

The New Normal is not to be missed, and is a step in the right direction for NBC, a network that is known for quality comedy programming.

The New Normal premieres Tuesday September 11 @ 9:30/8:30c on NBC. **Please note that this is only a review of the early version of the pilot**

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
