The Way That We Live

Tonight (through the mighty power of Netflix) I watched the first episode of The L Word's final season. I won't bore you with all the details, but I do have a few things I want to share.

First of all, I'm already over Jenny's death. Sure she is pretty at times (I thought she looked gorgeous in a sweet way in the final scene at The Planet), but she is really best at making enemies. Her use of the word "shomance" made me happy and I also enjoyed how she carried out all of her evil in a black lace bra, but other than that, she just aggravated me throughout the 53 minute episode. So, yes, she's dead. But really... let's move on.

Also, did I miss something? When and how did Helena return with the smuggled funds? I don't understand how she could have done that without being noticed. I think I might have blocked Season 5, so I think I'm going to Netflix it too.

I <3 Alice and Tasha. Of course they are fighting again, but how adorable are they? I'll tell you: stinkin' adorable. If I buy a fold-out couch and cute glasses, will all my problems be solved?

Now... Bette is making all sorts of promises. Forever promises that make me think that something odd (yet predictable) is going to happen there. Tina is, of course, smitten and completely wrapped up in the movie production world. Throw in a baby with a fever and their story is tied up with a neat little L Word bow.

Shane. Homegirl needs to figure things out. Like how to pull down the attic ladder in that closet and find the letter (cheesy as it may be) from her lady.

Okay, so maybe I said at the beginning of the post that I won't bore you with all the details, but I think that I just did.

Just this final thing. When this show ends five episodes from now, I'm really going to miss looking at these women.

Oh dear.

I loved Alice's glasses too. Loved them.
