I watched the first 2 episodes of this show, which is a comedy about pg couples. I am already freaking out because at some point, I wonder if the topic of circ will come up. Being a comedy that so far seems to be about mainstream parents (like I said, only two episodes so far and the kids are not even born yet), I am so worried it will be handled badly!<br><br>
That's all I wanted to say... I worry about these things before they even happen!~

I feel the same way! I've been watching cautiously because, like breastfeeding, I'm sure it will come up! I'm pretty sure I won't like it and may throw things...

I'm not even going to watch the show, after seeing previews and getting ROYALLY pissed off with the epidural comments and so on, I just know it'll get worse and worse.<br><br><br>

I don't see them doing an episode on it, circumcision is too touchy of a topic. (They certainly had their opening when baby Omali turned out to be a boy.)

I watched the first episode and hated where it was obviously headed, so I won't watch anymore. I would be more surprised if they <i>don't</i> broach the circ subject when it pertains to the main characters. It's a juicy topic chock-full of joke possibilities for mainstream America.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes"> I know I would be <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hopmad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hopping mad"> watching too much more of that show, let alone if they brought up circ the way I think they would.

I'll let y'all know if it comes up, I've been watching it. The breastfeeding references are less than stellar, so I can only imagine what the circ ones would be like!
