Heya!!  I'm here to report that Amazon sent me a notification that my DVDs have been shipped!!  Yeehaw!  So, it'll be interesting to see how long they will take to reach me since I chose the free-shipping option.

I'm excited.

Yeehaw!!!  Great news Bud!


I've watched 4 episodes so far!  And, boy, you're absolutely right that Jenny is quite a piece of work this season.

I'm at the point where Bette and Tina have recently hooked up a bit at that new lesbian bar.  It would be nice to see them get back together.  My feeling is that the whole series has been building up to a point where they'd eventually get back together again.  Although, I really liked Tina's new girlfriend, Brenda.  I thought she was super cute.

There are a few loose ends from the first several episodes.  I feel like that was quite some drama with Shane's business burning down... but we haven't learned too much about that yet in terms of follow up.  And, I feel like there are lots of unresolved issues that came out of Bette's tense weekend visit to the cabin with Jodi and her friends.  Boy was that uncomfortable.  I feel like there's some stuff that went on there that hasn't really been tackled (yet).  I really don't like Jodi much, so I'll be happy if Bette breaks up with her eventually.

I still totally love Alice.  I dream of having a best-lesbian friend like her someday.  But, I was sort of upset with her for photographing the two basketball players dancing together at the secret Hollywood gay party.  I really didn't think she would do something like that.  I hope she doesn't use that photo in a public way.

Well... there's so much to discuss!  Even in just the first 4 episodes.  But, I'm at work now and should run...

More later...

cheers,
A

Hey bud,

I watched the first three episodes yesterday!
Have you seen any more since your last post?

Yeah, Jenny & her creepily obsessive bizarre new assistant. lol. 
Jenny does get a little tolerable as the season progresses though. At least I think so..

And, I feel like there are lots of unresolved issues that came out of Bette's tense weekend visit to the cabin with Jodi and her friends.

That weekend was a disaster.  Now that I am watching the episodes again...there was always something off between Jodi & Bette.  Their personalities clashed and even though they loved each other, there is a vibe there that suggests they will not be able to make things work.

You'll have to keep watching to see what happens... 8)

Ditto.  She's pretty durn cool.  :)


That episode with Shane working at the wedding was just over the top & hilarious.  Shane, Shane, Shane..
At least she made the effort to go on a 'cleanse' from drama & sex..lol.


What do make of Tasha this season.. what with the military investigation and all?


I'm hoping to watch the next 2 episodes tonight.

Heya Milli!

I haven't watched any more of the episodes yet, and I probably won't until tomorrow night.  Both last night, and certainly tonight, my attention will be riveted to the election coverage.  After tonight I can give the L-Word and Sarah Waters, etc. my undivided attention.
