I was just wondering, are there any strategies you use to convince people to watch shows that have a provocative premise?
This is probably the only show where my dad has needed a lot of convincing to watch.
Joey and Rachel go on a date that they enjoy, but we don't.

In fact, it is not even my least favorite story line of the series: That dubious achievement goes to how the show wrapped up Jason Street's story in season three.
I never found it credible, and I do not care for it!
The other (the first one) puts them in a spot where they really have to think about whether they're interested.
It does not take much to get them to watch a show, but my dad in particular gets squeamish when we mention the premise of Transparent, as if trans stories are where he draws the line.
And yet overwhelmingly they are dull, unsexy, indistinguishable. Big question here: I'm a 19-year-old gay boy who loves shows with women in the main cast. Given that fact, do you think I could enjoy Entourage? —Bruno Bruno, I really encourage you to stop thinking about shows as "boyish" or "girlish." I've touched on that here before, but let's revisit it: Rigid gender roles are contrived and bad for everyone. Entourage is not inherently boyish or girlish but merely Piven-ish, and not very good. Over its run, it became repetitive and unimaginative, and the characters are loathsome and gallingly stupid. If you've seen four episodes and don't like it, my God, dude, move on.
They're just dumb, worthless crapbags like the rest of us! I watched like four episodes and I still don't feel like I gotta watch the next ones. You identified yourself as a boy, but said yourself that you don't like "boyish" shows. Blegh, Entourage, easily the least essential show of our time.
Perhaps you won't like all of it, but I'm pretty sure you'll love it anyway.
Now that we've seen the emancipation of Caitlyn Jenner this week, I think it's a good time to bring up the fact that I cannot get my parents to watch Transparent on Amazon.
And if your folks like OITNB, they have at least some familiarity with trans characters and trans performers. Like no one can possibly still view this as an exercise in attempting to make genuine romantic connections. I find the whole Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise too weird and gross, and even more criminal than those things, unbelievably boring, so, no, I will not accept this rose, thank you very much. When we watch this caricature of dating, it's a lot easier to see what's "wrong" with people, even as we know all of it is deeply contrived. Plus, these shows provide some decent people-watching.
