Babies babies babies. Looks like this episode of The Fabulous Beekman Boys is all about babies. I love babies. Doesn’t everybody love babies? How can you not love a baby? Even a goat baby. Looks like this is going to be fun. As usual, I will rank the events depicted on the show using a scale of goats. Five goats is good. One goat is bad. At the end, the number of goats will indicate whether I am more or less likely to follow the Beekman Boys’ lead and leave New York City.

It’s winter at the farm. I hate winter everywhere but in Southern California. Upstate New York is not Southern California. One goat.

Farmer John is going away for hip replacement surgery. Fuck that. If being a farmer and living in the country means your hips get destroyed, I don’t want to have anything to do with it. One goat.

Farmer John leaves instructions for Brent and Josh before he leaves for the hospital. The goats are all pregnant and might have the babies while he’s gone and it’s cold and he doesn’t want them to freeze. Brent asks about scarves for the goats. I laugh a little bit. Three goats.
