February 25, 2007: And the "O" Goes To... Season 4, Episode 8

Steamy, steamy night tonight! We haven't had an episode like that in quite a while. *fanning myself off* Now then. "Oh, Sounder, am I going to burn in hell?" Uh... yes, Jenny, you are. Jenny's even more obnoxious as a hot Hollywood commodity now. I love how Bette was able to impress Jenny's agents on behalf of Tina, and I also enjoyed seeing Tina's humanity return to the story. I really felt for her, and found the opening scene between she and Bette to be particularly sensitive and beautiful. That's the Tina I always liked, and I hope that they'll continue moving her into a softer, more sympathetic direction throughout the remainder of the season. It seems that our new "dragon lady" is Cathryn. It feels like she's the person that Helena used to be, and I fear that her influence on Helena is dangerous. I couldn't believe it that Cathryn was able to talk Helena into canceling her "date" with the kids. Even back when Helena was "the" official ice queen of the L Word, she loved her kids more than life and would stop at nothing to spend time with them. Seeing the way Cathryn has influenced Helena is making me a bit uncomfortable.... I also wonder what Cathryn's real plans with Helena are? There's something about her that doesn't feel right, and I mean that beyond the B-word. It feels like she's trying to do something to Helena, but I can't figure out what.... I really love the dynamic between Tasha and Alice concerning their views on the war, and that they've been talking it through and discussing valid points for both perspectives. I also think it's great that even with their differences, they are continuing to take their relationship to the next level. I loved Alice's response when Tasha said, "Well, then what the eff am I doing here?" Classic. I was also way into Papi and Kit's dance tonight, and smiled when Papi took care of Kit, treating her like a real lady, after she'd done a bit too much to get her mind off Angus. And Kit's reaction the next morning, "You mean I didn't make the effin chart?!" Hilarious. I do wish that Kit hadn't gone off on Angus on stage, though. Why would she let him sabotage her moment, her big CD release? That sucked. I wish she'd confronted him either before or after the performance. Jodi and Bette... do you think they'll try to work it out? Or do you think Bette and Tina will get back together because of Bette's loyalty and predisposition to monogamy? I was devastated to see Shane's dad show up (even though I think Eric Roberts is mad hot)! If he takes Shay away, I don't know that Shane will recover from that. And it'll only teach her that it's not worth it to commit yourself to somebody... not even family. I missed Phyllis. 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.
