Bob Newhart Treats a Gay

Gayest Episode Ever

“Some of My Best Friends Are…” (October 9, 1976) The fifth season of The Bob Newhart Show has a gay episode functions differently than most other show’s gay episode. For one thing, its central gay character is one who’d been on the show before; it’s just that no one — neither on the show or watching the show — knew he was gay. For another thing, it’s not the last time we see this character; unlike most LGBT guest characters on sitcoms, his existence does not end with the one episode that revolves around his queerness. End of episode question: If you were making a podcast called Gayest Video Game Ever, what game would your talk about first? For Mother’s Day, buy your mom a classic “ALF Says Gay Rights” mug from our TeePublic store. Read Brett White’s piece of how this episode’s Mr. Plager was the first pre-existing character on a sitcom to come out.

Xuxa has a heart AS BIG AS THE WORLD! Bears in Games explains why Final Fight is one of the gayest video games ever.
