Back in the day, a major sitcom doing a gay episode was a big deal. A proper gay episode would get headlines, but it would get the attention of two young guys who were still figuring things out — sexuality-wise and culture-wise. Gayest Episode Ever has screenwriter Glen Lakin and stay-at-home journalist Drew Mackie going through the great and not-so-great gay episodes of sitcoms past.

“72 Hours” (February 17, 1990) We figured the only proper way to start this season would be to say goodbye to Betty White — and a great way to do that would be to discuss a Golden Girls episode where Rose takes an HIV test. Not only does it showcase a wider range of Betty’s acting chops, but it’s also a great kickoff to a new sort of episode we’ll …

“The Bands Break Up” (September 28, 1987) We’re not *quite* ready yet to swing into regular production, so we’re tossing up an episode of our Patreon-only bonus podcast, The Cartoons That Made Us Gay, onto the main feed. It’s the Jem and the Holograms episode that is titled “The Bands Break Up” but would me more accurately titled “Kimber and Storme…

I know I said in the previous episode that there would not be another Singing Mountain winter VGM episode. I lied. This episode — a two-hour, ”all music, no talk” collection of 16-bit winter VGM — originally went live December 21, 2020 on the Singing Mountain Patreon. It has not been available since I took down the Patreon page, but now it’s posted…

Earlier this year, Monday Afternoon Movie gifted you faithful listeners with the Paul Lynde Halloween Special, which has surely enriched your lives forever. Now, we are celebrating Christmas with yet another Paul Lynde special — one even less remembered and perhaps even less good: ’TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, which aired just once in 1977 and …
 
“A Little Christmas Queer” (December 8, 2005) Lest you be tempted to believe that Christmas miracles aren’t real, we finally found an episode of Will & Grace that Drew doesn’t hate. This one, from the final season of the show’s original broadcast run, focuses on Will and company spending Christmas with his family and the problems posed by the fact …
 
First of all, this is not Puerto Rican egg nog. Secondly, it's made mostly with canned goods, which speaks to how Puerto Rico adapted to being a U.S. territory.

Special presentation! The Totally Trans podcast is covering the All in the Family character of Beverly LaSalle in a three part series this week because it marks a pairing of trans representation on a sitcom with the Christmas season. In an effort to promote this in-depth look at All in the Family, we’re posting the first part on our feed. Have a li…
 
Given that Christmas is upon us, you might be expecting a 2021 edition of Singing Mountain’s ice music episode. Unfortunately, it turns out I used all the tracks I collected in last year’s winter episode and so I decided to lean in a different direction. This is the third in a different series I’ve been calling Save Point — all atmospheric, calming…
 
Sam started this podcast to celebrate how bonkers made-for-TV movies could be back in the day, but this episode, about 1975’s THE UFO INCIDENT, requires a different approach. In short, this movie is good. Starring two Academy Award-winners — James Earl Jones and Grandma Bev herself, Estelle Parsons — THE UFO INCIDENT tells the story of Betty and Ba…
 
“Evie Stevie” (December 16, 1989) Whether you remember it as the show with the talking geodesic dad cube or the one with the girl who could freeze time, Out of This World has been relegated to the further reaches of 80s nostalgia. You might even believe some naysayers that it wasn’t a good show; however, it was exactly as good of a show as you coul…
 
School-provided lunches have existed in the US for about 130 years, if you count the early days when private welfare groups handled the gig. School lunches have never been paused since they started, but the impetus for providing them has varied widely. (And they're the reason "white people food is bland" is such a compelling concept.) Listen to Sma…
 
“Ovulation Day” (January 7, 1996) Mad About You was one of NBC’s major sitcoms in the 90s, but it hasn’t left a legacy the way many of its Must See TV mates have. We talk about why in this episode, which is actually the part one of a two-part crossover with the queer film podcast A Piece of Pie, where we’re also discussing Helen Hunt’s Oscar-winnin…
 
“Single White Male” (January 7, 1995) Even if you were the kind of person who watched all of NBC’s Saturday night sitcoms back in the day, the following things may surprise you: 1) Empty Nest is a solid sitcom. 2) Empty Nest was a strong ratings performer that often beat the show it spun off from, The Golden Girls. 3) Empty Nest was still on in 199…
 
The only this better than a made-for-TV thriller with Karen Black is one where she plays dual roles. Sam is joined by actor Miguel Pinzon to talk though this “supernatural or not?” entry from 1977.

“Turkey in a Can” (November 24, 2013) Why did the fourth-season Thanksgiving episode of Bob’s Burgers make some people think Bob Belcher is bisexual? In short, it’s a single line — “I’m mostly straight” — but the real answer is a more complicated one that has to do with the show’s queer sensibility, its overall gentle nature and the fact that Bob i…
 
“The Play’s the Thing” (November 17, 1992) The big joke with Full House never did a gay episode despite being a show about three men cohabitating and coparenting in San Francisco. However, the fifth season introduced Derek (Blake McIver Ewing), a new friend for Michelle who’s well-mannered, soft-spoken and really good at showtunes. We’d argue that …
 
“Portrait of a Lackey on Fire” (November 21, 2021) Either we traveled to the future or the showrunner of The Simpsons reached out and asked us if we want to preview a new Smithers-centric episode airing this Sunday. Maybe both? This new episode happens to be written by Rob LaZebnik (a straight) and Johnny LaZebnik (his son, a gay), and we spoke wit…
 
Patty Duke has a revered place in the annals of made-for-TV horror for the wonderfully bonkers CURSE OF THE BLACK WIDOW, but five years before she played the lead in SHE WAITS, a more traditional “woman in a house” chiller that also stars Dorothy McGuire and Beulah Bondi. How does it hold up? Actor Doug Plaut talks it out with Sam. Listen to MAM’s …
 
Abby Fisher was born in South Carolina but found her fortune in San Francisco. She wasn't mining for gold herself, but she fed those that did, and her recipes were so good they made her write a book about them.

Not to gunk up your feed with too much from us this week, but some of you have been having problems getting the track to play on Apple Podcasts. If you are, delete that first version of the episode and listen to this one. If you didn't have a problem, just delete this one. Sorry for the confusion! “The New Girl, Part One” and “The New Girl, Part Tw…
 
“The New Girl, Part One” and “The New Girl, Part Two” (November 19 and 26, 1980) True, the first episode of The Facts of Life is the one that comes closest to addressing LGBT issues, but so much of Jo and Blair’s relationship treads close that we are returning to discuss Nancy McKeon’s two-part introduction to the show. Librarian and Facts of Life …
 
“Michelangelo Meets Mondo Gecko” (September 14, 1991) It’s finally here: The Cartoons That Made Us Gay, our new Patreon-exclusive bonus podcast, focused on queer readings of the cartoons of our youth. While this series will comprise ten episodes only available on our Patreon feed, we’re putting the first part of the first episode on the main feed t…

The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (October 29, 1976) It’s the first TableCakes crossover! But is Gayest Episode Ever making an appearance on Monday Afternoon Monday or vice versa? Who cares! The point is that Sam Pancake — actor, comedian and host of MAM — is discussing The Paul Lynde Halloween Special with Drew and Glen in all its vintage bonkers b…
