Look Out, Here They Come! Season 5, Episode 2

Shane, Shane, Shane. Y'know, I found the whole thing with Shane and the wedding party to be so... surreal. At first, it was obvious that she'd wind up getting together with one of the bridesmaids, and it was funny when she did. But then... it got so out of hand, I started to roll my eyes and become bored with it all. Right. Shane's a player, Shane's got magnetism of epic proportions... whatever. I get it!The scene I liked most was when Shane had a true heart-to-heart with the bride. Now, the question is, when Shane said "You remind me of somebody I used to know," who was she referring to? As I was watching the scene, I had thought in the very beginning of the scene that the bride looked a lot like Dana. Do you think that was to whom Shane was referring, or was it Carmen? I think it was Dana.My favorite scene tonight was Kit's arrival in the prison. Foxy Brown in the house! I loved the scene between her and Helena, as if Kit was helping Helena decipher code. Great comedy, and so subt... read more

LGB Tease Season 5, Episode 1

WeLcome back, everyone! I thought this was a very strong season premiere, how about you? In particular, I loved the humor... it feels like with every season, as the cast chemistry and characters continue to evolve, the sense of humor gets more and more wicked-delicious. The biggest surprise for me tonight was how much I now love Jenny. I think it's great that the writers have decided to embrace her bitchiness to the fullest and make her into a "Hollywood Diva," rather than a self-loathing masochistic whiner. I would much rather enjoy despising Jenny, and this new version of her feels like that guilty pleasure, "love to hate" soap opera vixen. I think I can roll with this... and it looks like Mia Kirshner is having a blast with this new take on her character, too. So many of the scenes between her and the other girls, in particular, Tina, were just fantastic, because they were so over-the-top. May as well make her operatically bitchy, because at least we can have fun with that! I was... read more

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.
