The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo homage comes weeks after Wood delivered a spot-on Grey Gardens impression in the series' third episode.

February 4, 2007: The (Other) L Word

I couldn't believe my ears the first time Phyllis said, "I love you" to Alice on voicemail, but then to Alice's (and my) horror, she had to go and say it again and again while desperately clutching Alice's arm. Yikes. I really didn't want Phyllis to become so desperate and clingy; I just wanted Phyllis and Alice to have lots of fun scenes together so that we could enjoy Leisha Hailey and Cybill Shepherd's brilliant comedic skills. [Sigh] Oh well, as cringe-inducing as Phyllis' affections are becoming, it is great drama, and it tells a lot about how lonely she's been for so many years. I just hope that Phyllis comes out of this relatively unscathed and that she and Alice can maintain a friendship.I'm relieved that Helena was able to find a way to save her catering job, except do you think that her caviar purchase may have actually taken the money right back out of her pocket? The sad thing is, the whole time she was prepping the food in the apartment kitchen, and then in Phyllis' kit... read more

January 21, 2007: Hot for Dean Porter

Wow, I laughed out loud so many times during tonight's L Word, I lost count! I never thought I'd see Helena wearing hot pink and blue hair extensions. I really wish that she'd been able to "cut it" like Shane's receptionist at Wax, but just as Bette pointed out, she's reinventing herself; it's going to take time for somebody as pampered as Helena to figure out who she really is. That's what I love about this story line, too: it's as humbling as it is humorous, and the elitist witch that Helena once was is now the sympathetic person that I find myself cheering for with each episode. She already started to evolve into a more gracious and generous person last season, even though she was still filthy rich. I'm sure she's in for a lot of ups and downs in this new phase of her life, and I really hope that she finds a way to make it on her own. I believe she will do wonderfully eventually, and Shane gave her the right advice: She does have at least one thing that she can do well, and she j... read more
