There are 26 comments on the Erie Times-News story from Jun 19, 2010, titled 'Fabulous Beekman Boys' trade urban life for farming. In it, Erie Times-News reports that:

At first glance, "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" would seem to feature the least likely agrarians since Oliver and Lisa took up farming on "Green Acres." These "boys" aren't sitcom characters.

I have to agree with John, the top #1 brand of soap is "Caswell and Massy" best soap you will ever buy. When it comes to your skin you can't fool around, get nothing but the best!!!!!

I am a successful attractive and generally kind hearted 40-something gay man from California. Below are a few observations I have about this show, and unfortunately most of them are not very nice, so I apologize in advance for feeling the need to say them:

1. Good for these guys for maneuvering themselves a show. I dont know how they did it but I am sure surprised that they managed to.

2. These guys are neither interesting nor likable... especially Brent. What a douche! I would kick his effing ass!

3. The amount of whining foisted upon the poor unsuspecting viewer in this show make it unwatchable. I do whatever possible to avoid real life whining, why the heck would I sit down with the intention of watching it on television. NOT!

4. These guys are NOT remotely fabulous. In fact, they are COLOSSALLY (not just regularly) BORING. Just because they know Martha Stewart means nothing to me. I know a huge coterie of celebrities. Wowee. Really, so what?

5. Even though I was hoping there would be, no entertainment or education value was present in the three episodes of this show that I forced myself to sit though.

6. I wish I could be more supportive of a show starring two gay men. With a great deal of regret, I must report that this is utterly impossible. The "Fabulous" Beekman Boys is a load of crap.

Bill in LA-couldn't agree with you more! I gave this show a try at work (work overnights and there was a marathon on) I truly was considering trying the soap but after watching Brent refuse to sell soap at his "garden party" and then refusing to let anyone help with a huge order it got old-I think Josh needs to run for the hills and get out of that relationship- I realize tv edits the *^&& out of these shows for content but Brent does come off as such a control freak who is downright abusive and condescending-he just doesn't seem likeable from what you see on TV It may be good for ratings but it is not a healthy relationship. run Josh run!

Bill in L.A., why would people reading your comments need to know that you're successful and attractive? Does that somehow mean your observations carry more weight? Well maybe it does in your huge coterie of celebrities.

Why did you say MOST of your comments are not very nice? NONE of them are! The only one that seemed to come close was #1 but even that was bitchy and backbiting in it's tone.

Entertainment is the eye of the beholder. You obviously didn't see any - I and the people I know who watched saw a lot. In terms of educational value, it has a fine amount for the fact that it's a reality show. If you really want to know how to start a farm from TV, watch a documentary. In the nine episodes I've seen so far, I've learned some basic things about goat raising and breeding, gardening, cheesemaking, the stresses of starting a whole new way of life among other things. I didn't learn everything I needed to, nor did I expect to, but it inspired me to read up on the things that interested me within the show.

I'll agree with you to a point about how their personalities come across. I didn't find them boring, but even though they've been together for 10 years and are dealing with the stress of a commuter relationship, they tend to come off unlikable and even a bit nasty to each other. They've been approved for a second season - personally, I hope I see more of the reasons they're together and how they make their new life and their lives together work.

I think the whole thing is ridiculous! My town can be recognized for many great things, and it is recognized for (no offense) two gay dudes!?

Where the heck does the name " Beekman" come from?
It is the Dutch name of the dude who built their mansion in the 1800s they just called it that so city folk could go and say they saw the Beekman estate and the Beekman boys even though neither of them are actual beekmans
