The L Word drought is over

Posted by: Kitten Power

I have been hard pressed to write, or do much at all, after finding the 5th season of The L Word on YouTube and trying to watch it all before it is possibly found and removed (ah!).  It is such addictive watching, but seriously, is Jenny Schecter not the MOST annoying TV character since Fran Fine?

I don’t want to spoil too much of what is going on for anyone who has only seen up to the end of season four, or less, but let’s just say Jenny’s on an even mightier power trip than ever before.  As so many fans have already said, why oh why did they kill off Dana and not Jenny?  Oh Dana . . . (sighs)

It’s exciting times for Bette and Tina fans though . . . are they . . . maybe . . . will they get back together?!  I am sooo in love with Miss Powerpants; Bette Porter.  I’ve decided she’s my HOWILF (pronounced howwwl wolf) as in hot older woman I’d like ta . . . yeah. 

In other movements, someone finds romance behind bars, someone else hits the headlines, while someone else entirely is annoying as hell (guess who?!)

There will apparently be just one more season of The L Word made and I seriously hope something new comes along afterwards, so I don’t have to be stuck watching The Box and just wishing it was a dyke channel, as the name so cruelly insinuates it could be. 

I guess there is always Grey Anatomy, which I find pretty boring generally . . . but I hear there is a lesbian storyline happening involving that hot Dr Callie Torres.  Did anyone see the elevator kiss?  I’ll have to check it out.  As long as they don’t move in together and try to have a baby next week (eek turkey basters!), I’ll take any lesbian storyline I can get.

Here’s the first part of the first episode from season five of The L Word anyway ladies (and all you guys who love The L Word after being introduced by your lesbian mates).  The links to the next parts of the episode, and further episodes, pop up when you open it in YouTube.  Watch it while you can!

    Dear God I haven’t seen past season 3 because I can’t afford to buy 4 from Amazon. Anyone know when the Season 4 DVD will be out here????

    Prime has started from season 1 again on Sunday nights - maybe they will go through all the first four seasons before playing season five.

    I think everyone who has the DVDs should organise L Word watching parties!

    Unfortunately I lent my first two seasons on DVD to a “mate” who got suddenly got a bee in her bonnet about “the scene” and we never saw again or were able to contact again. Women . . . So I just haven’t got around to buying them again.
