Falling in Love …With Chris and Greg: Episode 2: Road Trip! TV Special
Chris E. Vargas and Greg Youmans’ web sitcom Falling in Love …With Chris and Greg mixes stylistic gestures of network sitcoms and public access television. The characters are a queer couple grappling with the both mundane and not so mundane trials and tribulations of monogamy. The language has the written-sounding cadence of a traditional sitcom; we are aware that this is a presentation/construction and not reality. The humor comes as a product of careful juxtapositions of expectation with surprise, or as the result of wordplay and specificity. The archetypes of the gay man and the gay couple are fully malleable in this world, and are victim to a loving debate between Chris and Greg. Falling in Love plays with stereotypical identities whose in/accuracies expose the manner in which queer identity draws into contention all manner of gender normative givens. Falling in Love is an exploration of radical difference within equally radical normalcy.
