Storyline

So you think Romeo and Juliet had family issues? Listen to this. Bobby is a bartender and the only son of gregarious, salt-of-the-earth Irish Catholic parents from Boston. His fiancée, Liz, is a toney Harvard medical student and she's Protestant (no, that's not the problem). Liz has two dads, not one, and they're a worldly pair of well-heeled gay men. The moment Bobby popped the question to Liz, they knew their families would have to meet. And the first time they brought his Mom and Dad together with her Dad and Dad... well, things did not go well. Aside from the obvious, there's a culture gap between these in-laws-to-be that makes the Grand Canyon look like a seam in the sidewalk. Liz's parents are devotees of the arts. Bobby's are devotees of the Red Sox. Liz's parents are into St. Laurent. Bobby's parents swear by St. Patrick. Did we mention that Bobby's sister, Maddy, loves throwing gasoline on the fire? From Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, acclaimed producers of the Oscar-winning ... Written by Anonymous

"It's All Over"
10 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Trying to inject some imagination in their stable of cookie cutter tv sitcoms,ABC brought to the public "It's All Relative".A show with the situation for it's comedy that a son of a straight Boston couple,that own and run a pub,is in love with a young girl who is the daughter of two gay men,with conflicts rising between the two families every now and then.

Had this been done in Britian(A show,with this premise,may have been considering how networks here copy after British shows all the time),the show would have been the all out laughfest ABC had hoped for.

But the comedy was somewhat low key because the gays on the show were too low key in how they were portrayed.No Out magazines in at their homes,no pink shirts,no tv viewing of American daytime soap operas.I am not saying that these things make up a gay person,but the things about the two gay men were toned down so much that they turned out to be some dull characters.The jokes were so subtle and down low,that after a while,there seem to be no real conflict between the straight Boston pub owners and the gay men.The show drifted in its'dullness and the general public reacted accordingly.

Hollywood is dominated,on and off screen,by the gay community.This community is expressing itself more and more each year.Many gay projects play hardball with the general audience(Queer As Folk) and few projects throw soft ball pitches to this same audience.Guess which group It's All Relative falls into?

The only good thing about It's All Relative is the beauty we saw from Maggie Lawson,who played the gay couple's young daughter.Hopefully she shall find another project to be apart in.A successful one.ABC thankfully pulled the plug on It's All Relative and now it's all over.
