ABC: Already Been CrossDressed

So, ABC, fine makers of Disney-related entertainments and a wholly-owned subsidiary thereof, is bringing this to your TV screen in January, 2012:

On the one hand, I have fond memories of “Bosom Buddies” with Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari. I always wanted to see Scolari’s “Henry” hook up with Wendy Jo Sperber and of course, the show did have Donna Dixon in, almost always, spandex. (I was 12.) On the other hand, this show looks absolutely wretched.

The two leads look as convincing as women as the Wayans did as “White Chicks.” Maybe, I’m wrong and this fresh take on gender roles and expectations will shed an illuminating light on modern day office and romance politics. Or it could be a rehash of every cross-dressing joke and cliche that Billy Wilder wrote in 1959. As with most shows, I will watch the first few episodes if only to continue proving that I truly do hate myself.
