This isn't easy for me. I've been an L Word junkie since day one. I was there when Jenny first moved in and spied on her neighbors having sex in the pool and then magically became gay herself. I was there and ELATED when Dana and Alice had their first kiss. I was there when Kit walked in on her business partner fondling her prosthetic penis in the mirror. I was there as Shane went down on every woman in Los Angeles and never seemed to end up at the clinic. Hmmm. Yes I have been there since January 2004. And it hurts my heart to the core to break down and say that this show is quickly deteriorating into a pile of garbage.
The writing has never been A+ quality work any way. Something has always been a tad bit off with the plot line and the character development. But the fact that a show geared towards professional lesbians in Cali was an option for me to tune into every sunday, I fell in love. And I became invested in the hot mess of Tibette (that's Tina & Bette for you slowbies), and I grew to adore the quick-witted quirkiness of Alice (the best character on the show if u ask me), and Dana **tear** ohhh Dana, I cried when she died. And where the hell is Carmen? Her sexy ass.
These ladies truly became a staple of my meager televison show addiction and the ONLY reason why Showtime is subscribed to. Trust me, after this last season, Showtime is AXED. So please explain to me why the writers have decided to end the last season with a damn guessing game of who killed Jenny!?? I did, shit. There. Game over. I didn't like her anyway. She's over dramatic, self-centered and rude. Yes. She sounds a little bit like myself but at least I have the talent to back it up. And at least i'm not stabbing my friends in the back and ruining everyone's lives in the process. It's best that Jenny was hacked off but why is the last season devoted to her? It's ridiculous. I swear, if every single episode revolves around her, the season might end a lot sooner for me.
I hear there's gonna be a Spin-Off. Alice in Lesboland or something like that. (Not the real name of the show so don't go googling it) I'm not too sure what it's gonna be about yet but hopefully it will live up to Alice Piezecki's charm and humor. But until then, I have my own suggestion for a show....
Channel: LOGO. Screw Showtime.
Plot: 8 random women are moved into a house. 7 out of 8 of the women are honest to god, card carrying lesbians. The other woman is a poser and does a hell of a job at playing the role. The viewers at home nor the other houesmates know which of their roomies is the fake and whichever person can successfully out the straight woman wins the cash prize. Of course cat fights, hook ups and careflly crafted challenges unfold as well.
Purpose: Not all that glitters is gold and even if it walks like a lez, talks like a lez and kisses like a lez, u may be judging a book by its cover and putting the cart before the horse while hatching your eggs before the chicken lays em.
lol. What do u think? Would you watch it?
