The L Word 602 Recap: 9021Lesbo

Welcome to West Beverly High, where the emotional maturity level of our lez-be-frenz has been secretly replaced with that of 15-year-olds! This week, on a very special episode of The L Word

Stung by the revelation that their last night together was naught but a grudge fuck, a raccoon-eyed Niki rants to her entourage about the evils of Jenny. (Preach!) One unlucky hanger-on says the wrong thing and gets her partying pink slip by way of being booted from Niki’s five. (Poor Tiffy!) Oh, yeah — and Niki threatens Jenny’s life: “You’re dead meat, Schecter. Dead!” ‘Least Likely’ indeed.

At The Planet, Helena and Kit are hard at work, decked out in matching geek-chic glasses. (Oh, Rachel Maddow! You have made nerdiness so sexy in the feasting halls of our people that your influence has spread all the way to Glamazonia!) Nearby, Jenny and Alice sit across from one another at dueling laptops. The Schecter watches Shane’s arrival with a vacant, put-upon expression. Shane has made Jenny some waffles of EPIC FAIL as a peace offering, but Jenny dumps them in the garbage after a game of “I’m not speaking to you” telephone via Alice.

Bette and Tina show up and determine their seating arrangements by way of ‘rock, paper, scissors.’ Bette: “Have fun with the martyrs.” Tina: “Have fun with the cheaters.” We learn that Alice is writing a screenplay treatment; Tina volunteers Jenny to look it over for her. BFFs Tibette send each other gossipy texts about their friends from eight feet away, as Alice and Tasha put the ‘ick’ back in McBickersons. Jenny spends so much time with her mouth open in stunned dismay that I begin to wonder if that’s how she drowned. Bette and Tina announce they are planning to adopt baby Portard number two. Shane confronts Jenny, begging for forgiveness yet again, but to no avail.

Back at the homestead, Shane the indentured servant works on home improvement projects for Jenny. Max is off for his final pre-op consult.

Tina learns that Lez Girls has been retitled The Girls, and will be marketed as a hetero love story in the vein of Sex in the City. Barf. Tina’s mewling protests are met with: “Get on board, Tina. The train’s not going to lezzie town.”

On campus, at a staff meeting, Jodi basks in accolades for her vengeful art piece about Bette. Bette arrives. Awkward!

An enthusiastic Max

Hi Grace,

I just tried three times to post a comment to Julia's "Waffle" remark but it wouldn't post my comment. I included a YouTube URL. Do you know why it wouldn't let me post?

Julia, my favorite US of T line this week was Alice's "It's time to learn to start loving Oral". Or should that be 'Orel'? Anyhow, reminded me why we all started saying 'shenanigans' in general conversation. I LOL'd.

Just a thought ,Maybe jennie looks dead ,but really isn't dead and comes back in the spin off ! lolol . Maybe IC has been watching too much Daytime Drama Tv. It happens all the time on the soaps ! Dead people come back 2 years later.

Peace out

I do thank Ilene for the L-Word but it is not as great as it once was .I think it hit it's high point in seasons 1 & 2 .Season 3 really played a number on that show.I did love OurChart but like someone said down thread it was the way OC close with that "Wham Bam thank Ma'ma kind of way like X said

Don't worry about sounding creepy. (We all VP stalk Minnie.)

Well I do have to say that

Well I do have to say that this sight is somewhat like OC. The other sights where my friends went to is so overwhelming. I can follow this better. Change is not my strongest point. As for S6.........I think it is going in the oppisite direction than we all thought. It should have been 12 epsiodes. There is to much smooched together.

I feel honored now... Tongue Julia Watson reply my post..

I hope it turns out better for the sake of all the fans... And I do enjoy a lot watching TLW...

(I'm Mexican, and it took me some time to discover it, so now I am just enjoying.. Smile

Dude! I don't think anyone is being immaturely bitter about the show. We're just having a laugh. Smile

Um... poopface!

I get your point... I think

I get your point... I think I'm just not as involved with it..

I recently made a research paper about TLW and how it affected (some) women's lives... so i guess i am more of an outsider and i just go with the flow...

Smile

Julia Watson's picture

Glad to have you aboard,

Glad to have you aboard, Sandra!

For the record, I really like The L Word. I think it's beyond ridiculous at this point, but I have a great time watching it! (Although it must be said that this week's episode seriously blew. And Shenny seriously makes me want to gouge out my eyeballs with the nearest spork.)

Bittersweet's picture

Well the way I see it is OC

Well the way I see it is OC had a good run, TLW has had a good run so let's just enjoy what was without being immaturely bitter (yep that coming from me LOL) and bitchy about it all. Ok sure this season can't compare in quality to some of the other past seasons, but it is the last one after all and you know beyond everything, I do think that IC is human as well and I do believe that she probably feels saddened on some level by its demise right along with the rest of us even though she was blatantly sugar coating it all on OC to look good....no I should say 'professional' right lol. Anyway, on the whole Im actually glad TLW happened and Im glad OC happened for the time that it did, so beyond the cringe worthiness of some parts of the current season, all is forgiven on my part because when you look at the big picture, it's been a triumphant move Smile. Ok, Im ready for the backlash now...lol....

you always crack jokes about stuff... no??...
this might sound creepy now.. haha but i usually read the blog + comments and i see many of the regulars...

i'm just toooo shy!
haha

anyways, everyone has its own opinion and thats what matters..

Sandra's picture

I don't doubt that xan... VP

I don't doubt that xan... VP for me, is better than OC because it has the people that it should have.. and it's more than just TLW..

and I come to VP every day to check the new blogs.. and I always read all of you guys.. but yeah.. maybe I'm just being "innocent" about it... I didn't liked the way OC ended and after Grace and Kelly left, I deleted my profile and made VP one of my "favs"...
so, I've been here with all of you as well.. I'm just not as loud as you guys...

I just wrote a comment above referencing the Gong Show and hadn't even read this one yet. I have not even said the words "gong" and "show" in the same sentence in 30 years!!!!How coincidentally tragic.

Because I am feeling feisty,

Because I am feeling feisty, I would just like to point out that my original draft included the phrase "waffles of EPIC FAIL." As opposed to my new favorite phrase, courtesy of The United States of Tara, "muffins of triumph." In hindsight, probably too new a pop culture reference to really translate, but still...

Long live the funny!

bronwyn's picture

Sadly enough for TLW, I

Sadly enough for TLW, I thought Julie, as unfathomable as it may seem, was understated in her narrative...
As was I when I hosted a TLW Cheezball at my house Sunday night complete with reynolds wrap as a table cloth, a pink feather wreath centerpiece surrounding a bowling pin, a dixie cup of dead flowers, mad dog (along with more appealing libation), paper towels (as napkins) and all the different variations of cheez "ordervz" (velveeta cheez dip, cheez pizza, and of course an actual cheez ball, oh, and I threw in some vienna sausages for good measure...in hindsight I should have gotten spam). TLW 6:2 threw me completely out of the cheez dip and made mincemeat out of me instead of swiss cheese. When it was over I disappointingly felt like I had hosted an upscale soy cheese soire.

But I have to say, each episode of this season is as funny as watching the Gong Show except I just realized that we're the gongs.

PeaceKitty - you just reminded me of this series of books I used to read as a teen. They had two or more endings and you could pick the ending that interested you.

*reminising*

IC should have done that (go out leaving every lesbian satisfied!) ... Well, if your going to end a series with sheer corny-ness - you should really go for it!!

Bless you Sandra - but many

Bless you Sandra - but many at OldChart had rose colored glasses on in it's dying days. I felt that there was not nearly enough outrage at the 'Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am' way OC ended ... but that's just me!

What you might have perceived as negativity here at VP is just us regulars, overanalyzing every minute detail of whatever topic we are discussing!!

We also LOVE conspiracy theories!

Newcomers will get used to it. I think when VP gets all it's bells and whistles on - it will be better than OC was.
