19 May 2004 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

Gutsy, innovative, abrasive, funny, at times hilarious, topical, thought-provoking, I can't say enough good things about this show and Whoopi! The only way to improve it would be to have Bruce Vilanch as a writer. Seriously. Courtney and Rita are an absolute delight, and Nassim and Jadwiga provide hilarious views on our arbitrary, confusing society and mores. I could live without the drinking and smoking shown, and hope that quitting these will be future episodes, with Lots of difficulties doing so to show the true nature of these debilitating addictions. The way the gay marriage scenes were handled were in very good taste, and I really like the digs Whoopi takes at Bush and Republicans, and want to see many more. Thanks.
