Brian holds -now his- nightclub Babylon's reopening, but even manager Ted's deep-felt aggravation to be addressed loudly as Sir is objectively topped by Brian's to find a mere twelve men turned up, the outdated competing club Popperz got all the boys' business, even Emmett defects. Mikey and Ben's claim to joint custody of his daughter Jenny isn't only fought by the separated lesbian 'co-mothers', even knowing Mel is belligerent a lawyer, but also taken as an insult to single mothers by ma Debby and even disapproved by Gus's father Brian. Wedding coordinator Emmett saves a mismatched couple from every panic attack of the bossy bride; afterward the groom Magruder wants him- for a gay segment in his TV news show. Justin's Hollywood patron Brett Keller assures him Rage will still happen once he finds another studio, but he doesn't hold his breath. Back home, finding Brian back in the saddle, riding some spankable stud, is a sight for sore eyes and the irresistible turn-on they both ... Written by KGF Vissers

Ted's new look...
25 January 2008 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Episode 502 "Age is the last trick that any of us picks up… the problem is, after it *beeps* us it doesn't leave." ~Man

Hairstyles are the first things I notice toward the beginning of every season. It's always great to see what new looks each of the characters will have, unless there is some miraculous case of continuity (which rarely happens season-to-season, hairstyle-wise.) After season five episode one, I have to admit that I was pretty underwhelmed with the hairstyles. Brian's and Justin's? Absolutely perfect. But Melanie and Lindsay? Melanie's wasn't terrible, but I've seen much better, especially in season three (the best year for hair on this show); however, it is Lindsay's hair that looked horrendous. I'm liking Ted's new hairstyle, and what bothered me about the hairstyles the first episode is now slowly starting to fade. After only two episodes of season five, they are already starting to grow on me. The introduction of the "Queer Guy" storyline for Emmett was actually pretty hilarious. Peter Paige and Scott Lowell have such great chemistry together—it's kind of a shame that the Temmett relationship ended. With Michael's pursuit of Jenny Rebecca, it's hard to take sides. Melanie and Lindsay deserve to have the baby the most, although I can really see where Michael is coming from. And Debbie not taking Michael's side for a change was a welcome surprise. Overall another spectacular episode. I can probably predict already that I'm going to be one of the few that really liked season five.
