  • The Stars of the Show

    BY:Angela Rae Berg

    It’s very bittersweet for me to see the first season of The Fabulous Beekman Boys come to an end.  As you’ve watched Brent, Josh, and Farmer John go through the seasons on the farm, I have watched the last year of my own life (behind the camera) go by in 22 minutes + commercials every […]

  • Episode 9 Recap

    BY:James Frey

    It’s Episode 9 already? My God, this show is so great it’s feels like it’s episode 3. We only have a few left. I think I’m going to cry when it ends. For real. I’m going to cry. As usual, for this recap, I’ll use the goat system to rank what I see, and it […]

    BY:Dr. Brent

    Our first “farm” was on the rooftop of our New York City apartment building.  Our first “crop” was the purple cherokee tomato, an heirloom variety tomato that we thought was the most delicious thing that we had ever put into our mouths. At the time, we didn’t really know the significance of the word “heirloom” […]

  • Cooking for Jean-Georges

    BY:Josh Kilmer-Purcell

    I think the very definition of “mixed emotions” is cooking for Jean-Georges. His restaurants have earned the highest possible honors from both Michelin and The New York Times. He’s a celebrity from Shanghai to London to New York to, well, most anywhere with a stove. When Brent told me that he’d “volunteered” me to create […]

    Babies babies babies. Looks like this episode 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 […]

    BY:Josh and Brent

  • Walk This Way

    BY:Josh and Brent
