Getting rid of junk
4 July 2013 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

A good opportunity to clean the house, most people think on a garage sale as the perfect opportunity to get rid of so many things, and get some money in the process. After all, their junk might be a treasure find to the people who flock to these events.

Naturally, for Jay, this is a home invasion he is not ready to put up with. For Phil, parting with a long forgotten bicycle is the discovery of something from his past. Jay's motorcycle proves to be, in Phil's hands a dangerous object.

The other theme of this installment on the series is whether Alex's new boyfriend, Michael, is gay, or not. According to Alex, the boy is straight, but given his mannerisms as well as his tastes, he might be hiding his true nature, something both Cam and Mitch can identify with.

The episode was written by Abraham Higgingbotham, and directed by Gil Mancuso. The cast responds with the usual excellent standard that has made the show the fun it is.
