    I use to love that show when I was a kid. The gay couple, not my thing, but hopefully we don’t have to hear about their “whoopie”…. lol….

  • katie n

    To all the idiot comments on here: Grow Up and Get a life. Gay people are not going away on TV as much as you pray for it. If you don’t like it, move to a religious controled country like Saudi Arabia or Iran. See how long you will last there.

    I hope we don’t have to hear about the str8 couples whoopie either.

    FYI To the Racists: He is Japanese American. If fact he and his family were thrown in the japanese interment (sp) camps back in WWII.
