Peter brought it inBy on Mon, Mar 19, 2007 4:43 PM PDT
In my humble opinion, if you are given the chance to see the sex or food episode, do so by all means. Nothing made me laugh harder then when Shannon busts Gene eating a mountain of fast food, and during her questioning, Gene's answer is plain and simple, Peter brought it in. He doesn't mention that he paid a kings ransom for the food or the television set that was also brought in by Peter, an employee of the fat farm that Shannon takes Gene to. If you notice, as Shannon is reading Gene the riot act, he looks at his hands with a look of damn, I wish I could lick this mayo off, but apparently thinks better of it. All in all, Gene appears to be a very good sport, and it is obvious that there isn't a lack of love in the Simmons household. I look forward to this coming Sunday, and the first episode of season two. I have been a fan of Gene Simmons for going on 30 years, and this is truly a treat to see him in an element that I never thought I would ever see him in. His children are charming, witty and funny, and Shannon seems to always try to find some new and inventive way to give Gene a balance to shrink his sense of I'm bigger than the world mentality, which I honestly think is the only thing about this show that is concocted, in that I just don't think anyone who shows as much love to his family is quite as self absorbed as the wheeling and dealing Gene. Also the couch speak between the family members is always worthy of a look see, as they do come up with some very good observations about themselves as a whole. It's well worth the time spent watching, as you do see a side of a rock legend that you otherwise might never get to see.
