Husbands gets a second series and Joss Whedon says he loves it
The second series of underground hit web-show Husbands is set to be even better than the first! Brad Bell, who plays "flamboyant actor" Cheeks told heat: “For Season 2 we’re turning everything up, the quality, the controversy, the comedy, the heart, the sex — everything."
You might not have heard of it, but the show’s already got famous fans - Joss Whedon, who directed The Avengers and cult series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, has said that he’s jealous of the web-only series.
He said: "Husbands is full of the kind of whip-smart remarks you wish you’d written yourself."
So what is this show all about? Well, it’s made up of loads of short clips on YouTube and tells the story of two gay famouses – one’s a baseball player, another’s an actor – who accidentally get married in a drunken stupor while celebrating the legalisation of gay marriage.
They only realise the next morning, Dude, Where’s My Car style, that there’s a BIG problem. They’ve kind of been dating for six weeks and everyone’s going to judge them if they admit the wedding was a mistake.
They’re under pressure from ‘the cause’ to stay together and show gay people can get married and take it seriously (just like straight people do. We’re looking at you, Kim Kardashian). And if they admit it’s a mistake, then they’re Britney Spears! And they can’t be Britney!
So they stick it out, and it’s hilarious. You can watch the series at husbandstheseries.com, but here’s the first episode to whet your appetite!
