Q. Allan Brocka brought boundary-pushing, bald-faced queer humor to a whole new level in 1999 when his Lego-animated short film, Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple in All the World, killed on the festival circuit. Now, thanks to Logo, the award-winning flick has been developed into a weekly half-hour show. The pilot episode polishes the short�s plot as Rick and Steve�s dyke counterparts, Dana and Kirsten, ask for Rick�s �axle grease� so that they can have a child. With its silly innuendo (says Rick to his cat, �Keep your little pussy hair off the crudit�s�) and irreverent one-liners (�Conservatives and crack whores shouldn�t be the only people making babies�), Rick & Steve happily lives up to our expectations. Family Guy fanatics, take heed.
