IMDB entry for this episode


Written by Ian Praiser

Directed by James Burrows


This week we’re ghosting our stylists and heading to the Arabian Gallery for Episode 1.03, “Caroline and the Gay Art Show”!  Come along with us for a wild ride through art gallery emergencies, the rules of hugging for gay men, and the surprising joys of suddenly ‘shipping Del and Richard.  Don’t tell Charlie’s mother, she thinks we’re dating a doctor.


Watch Caroline in the City on CBS All Access!  (If you aren’t already, of course.)


For another perspective on this episode, here’s a discussion of it on the Gayest Episode Ever podcast (which examines LGBTQ-themed classic sitcom episodes).  We found it thought-provoking and entertaining, even though there are some points where we don’t necessarily agree...  (Ah, the magic of discussing this show!)
