Review:The New Normal on NBC

I love the fact that you can catch the preview episodes of new television series before it hits the airwaves and you can decide whether to watch the show or not when it comes on.

Last night before going to bed I found out that NBC had the premiere episode of the new comedy produced by Ryan Murphy (creator of Glee and American Horror Story) The New Normal on their web site.
Here is the description from NBC's web site.
These days, families come in all forms - single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors... It's 2012 and anything goes. Bryan (Andrew Rannells, "Girls," "The Book of Mormon") and David (Justin Bartha, "The Hangover") are a Los Angeles couple, and they have it all. Well, almost. With successful careers and a committed, loving partnership, there is one thing that this couple is missing: a baby. And just when they think the stars will never align, enter Goldie (Georgia King, "One Day"), an extraordinary young woman with a checkered past. A Midwestern waitress and single mother looking to escape her dead-end life and small-minded grandmother (Emmy and Tony Award-winner Ellen Barkin), Goldie decides to change everything and move to L.A. with her precocious eight-year-old daughter. Desperate and broke - but also fertile - Goldie quickly becomes the guys' surrogate and quite possibly the girl of their dreams. Surrogate mother, surrogate family.
Ryan Murphy serves as creator/executive producer and director along with creator/executive producer Ali Adler ("Glee," "Chuck") and executive producer Dante Di Loreto ("Glee," "American Horror Story").
"The New Normal" is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ryan Murphy Productions.

This show is so funny. Sort of gave me a glimpse of Kurt and Blaine from Glee in about 15 years. With the exception of Ellen Barkin most of the cast is unknown but that soon will change in my opinion.

You guys have to check out this show. I seriously think it will be the best new comedy of the year.
