The premise of "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" -- a couple, uptight Brent and laid-back Josh, give up the Manhattan media world to become gentlemen organic farmers in upstate New York -- inspires hopes of a gay "Green Acres." The chores! The culture wars!
Alas, reality is less fabulous than 1960s sitcom, at least in the first two "Beekman Boys" episodes, Wednesday on Planet Green. So far the show favors dour bickering over fish-out-of-water rural humor, much to its detriment. It's as if Jon and Kate Gosselin had spent every episode taking their children to see farm animals: Brent and Josh Plus 100 Goats.
