Alas, nobody who watches reality TV reads books.
You can see the highlights such as they are here:
“Here are real friends, coping, helping and leaning on each other” – NY Post
“Everyone’s point of view is aired, their issues brought out, their good moments celebrated, their less good ones drawn with sympathy.” – Los Angeles Times
And if that wasn’t a rave, we made it to the Editorial Board’s “2010 Missions Accomplished” List: “Though we didn’t get “The Biggest Reader,” we were lucky to get a reality show with substance thanks to the Sundance Channel’s “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys” about the very real friendships shared between straight women and gay men.” – Los Angeles Times
Entertainment Weekly gives us a B grade – qualifying us for honors degrees from some of the finest universities in the world.
“There is something seductive and surprisingly fresh about the situations we are privvy to: There’s Joel, a whip-smart composer about to marry the man he loves, and Sarah, his perpetually single gal-pal.” – Time Out New York
“Letting America know that the man literally can’t marry where he lives allows us to realize the impact of second-class citizenship.” – Politics Daily
The NYTimes was totally snarky. But it is a serious and important newspaper. Every time a Times reader watches reality tv, an angel gets waterboarded.
“Sarah Rose and Joel Derfner are the most likeable of the pairs.” – Pittsburgh Post Gazette
“We met in the dining hall at Harvard where we both shared a love for fried things and chocolate things. They supplied us amply with both and we’ve been the best of friends for the past 18 or 19 years,” – Dallas Voice
“[GWLBWLB] helps define what makes the chemistry between straight women and gay men so darn potent (think: Liz Taylor and Montgomery Clift or Rock Hudson and Doris Day)” – Philly Magazine
