February 11, 2007: For Your Consideration Season 4, Episode 6

I am absolutely floored by tonight's L Word. How floored? Well... let's just say that if I were one of the show's "Powers That Be," this would be the episode I'd send out to the Hollywood Foreign Press (Golden Globes)and ATAS (Emmy Awards) members. From the opening "real time" sequence with all of the different phone calls and the editing with the various split screens, to the amazing music, to the juxtaposition between Papi's poker lessons and Jenny's mind games. Brilliant, subtle and absolutely brilliant... a stunning episode that I could easily watch over and over again. I'm really pleased that Bette wound up talking to Angus about Hazel and Kit... just like I said I would do if I were in her shoes, eh? And see? It did get him shaking in his boots and got him to decide what to do pretty damn quick. Go, Bette! One thing I'm not so sure about is Bette's insistence that Angelica attend an Ivy League pre-school. Pre-school? Ivy League pre-school? Do you think she's being overly selective at this point in Angelica's life, or do you think she's right? I'm not sure what I think.... It was sad to see Jodi's confession of not liking kids sort of shatter Bette's hopes of a relationship with her, but at least she was honest. It looks like Bette's giving her another chance, but the previews for next week indicate that Jodi may be a bit too much of a wild child for Bette. We shall see. I do like them together. A lot. I really like Tosha. There's just something so cool and sexy about her; I can see why Alice would be drawn to her, even though they seem like such polar opposites. Alice (once again) got the biggest laugh out of me from the obscenities that ensued when she got hit in the eye! (I would recap it, but as open and free as TV Guide allows me to be, we still have to keep it a "general audiences" kind of blog.) Max! Max dropped the biggest, coolest bomb tonight, didn't he? And then they promptly left us hanging! So does this mean that Max just "came out" to the boss, or what's going on, here? If he did come out, what a brave and cool way to do it! That was amazing. I'm so curious to see what happens next with Max's ever-evolving character arc. But the biggest bomb of the night for me was Helena Peabody's bad hand. Bloody "L," is Helena about to pretty much become a prostitute to pay off the $50K? And did she basically get set up? Talk about a wild card! I'm really, really intrigued and scared for her right now. Another big question mark is Jenny. Do you think she'll try to continue pursuing the vet? I guess that not all of it was a total game to her, and that she really was starting to fall for her... which makes me think that Jenny won't give up on her, because that's just so Jenny. Your thoughts? What an episode. My head is still spinning after this one. show less

Premise: The lives of a group of lesbian friends in L.A. make for a sexy and stylish cable drama that tackles provocative issues (such as gender confusion, prejudice and gay parenting) with wit and grace, though with an occasional tendency to resolve story arcs a bit too neatly.
