Gotta admit i can see how it could have easily offended some people - some of the writing was a bit blatently stereotypical towards the gay community and i think they'd raise their eyebrows and say they can tell its written by two straght guys. I liked the idea of a puppet spoof of Hollywood, but maybe using puppets to act out some of the visual jokes skewed towards the gay theme were a step too far. I think it could have been done a lot better and cleverer, only gotta look at Will & Grace to see thats possible. I get the feeling Brian and Bill had the idea of doing it around the gay theme as thats quite popular and "in" amongst the comedy genre right now rather than trying to make any kinda point but its quite a sensitive topic and some will feel by using puppets and being so over the top and stereotypical about it they are making fun of it rather than being funny about it. I'm not sure how i feel there, i thought some things worked and some things missed the mark or were just too in your face.
