Season 4, Ep 402
by Janine Avril
As I am typing this, my cat Sebastian is drinking water out of a
Starbucks mug. Why haven't there been any more cats on the L Word?Since
Mr. Piddles there have been no new cats which I think is very
depressing. These lesbians need cats to make their lives better.
Why did Max agree to date his boss's daughter and actually allows things
to move past the first date because only an idiot would do such a thing.
I hope Los Angeles has good unemployment benefits because Max is going
to be on welfare in no time.
I was intrigued by the Shane/Shay storyline until it ended in utter
confusion. I watched the episode three times and still could not figure
out 1) why the slimy truck driver picked up ten year old Shay and 2) how
the truck driver got in contact with Shane. These holes in the story can
Tina had to fire Helena. An interesting twist. I am still harped on the
question of what Helena is going to do with her life. Is she going to
become a yoga instructor? Millionaire gone yoga instructor. She is out
of money, out of her own place to live and out of a job. She's up shits
creek and she just slept with Papi who probably has a very serious STD
after sleeping with 1357+ people. Poor Helena.
Papi seducing Alice was admittedly hot, although the repetition of
"Circles are great" got a little tiring. I would have preferred her to
just moan. I must say though that Leisha Hailey is looking sexy these
days. She has really grown on me as a character. I also think that I
like her more now that I realize that it was all a sham that she was the
token bisexual on the show... It is Tina who is the true bisexual.
Tina has become unappealing, not because of her bisexuality at all, but
because she is just such a snappy, tight ass these days. She was soft
and sweet when we first met her in Season one, but she really has become
a bitch on wheels.
I am liking the fact that Bette became "Dean Porter" of California
University to help Phyllis (Cybil Sheppard) make her way out of the
closet. It is clear that Bette was hired as a tool to ingratiate Phyllis
into the world of lesbianism as an older woman. This is an important
story to tell.
It is hilarious that Bette was able to bring James, her assistant from
the C.A.C, with her to her new job. Why did he want to come with her
when all she did was abuse him? Is he a glutton for punishment?
Nonetheless, Bette is already showing signs of being much nicer at this
job, probably so she doesn't get canned again.
Jenny is a true mess. This book deal has put her in rare form. She is
crazier than in season one or two. She has no regard for people, even
ten year old Shay. And what writer who has their head screwed on halfway
straight would go to the office of a magazine that reviewed them and
have a tantrum like that? I was embarrassed for her. Why is she so upset
that she was called self indulgent? She IS totally self indulgent,
totally self absorbed and better start self medicating really soon or
check herself back into the CooCoo ward of the nearest hospital. I love
looking at Mia Kirschner, but this Jenny character MUST reform herself
soon or else I'm going to lose patience. I've given her the benefit of
the doubt, but I'm starting to agree with all the hate mail about her.
Some questions to leave you with:
1) Why did it look like Alice went all the way to Tijuana to find Papi?
2) Why is Shay mute and why isn't anyone feeding him anything healthy?
All he does is get fed junk food by Shane's friends.
3) How did Kit get pregnant when she is 60? Is this going to be in the
Guinness Book of World Records?
4) Who was that truck driver? Tune in next week for more commentary and
