Pre-L: Let’s Get This Party Started

L504: “Let’s Get This Party Started”
So, a couple weeks ago the pre-cap theme was “I Want Your Sex.” Tonight, we’re reaching into the way-back machine again for another 80s gem. Oh yeah, “Physical,” baby. I can see the Day-Glo spandex already. Olivia Newton-John, do your thing.

1) Hello, casting couch.2) Resistance is futile.3) Let me hear your body talk, your body talk…4) Lord, we get it, stop plugging OurChart already.5) Someone has an iPhone. Jealous!6) Beware men in funny hats.7) God, Dean Porter is hot.8) For once, I agree with Jenny. The term “not fuckable” is wrong.9) Not the real Chart! Noooooooo!10) Shane has those wake up naked dreams too, but reversed.11) Open dictionary. Look up cute. Find this.12) Just a little something for you nutty Shenny fans out there.13) You see this cat Kit is a bad motherf---(shut your mouth!)14) Meet Dawn and Cindi, power lesbians from hell Miami.15) Heart doctor in da house.16) Yes, Alice, everyone here is closeted. It’s so 1992.17) “I’m so much better than, like, stupid Natalie Portman!”18) “But did you see her in that SNL Digital Short? Classic.”19) Is Adele starting to freak anyone else out?20) Resistance is……over.21) Careful Max, lessons learned on the dance floor last a lifetime.22) Tibetters……this……one……is……for……you.

This brings teh happy momentarily, tempered with distrust of IC.

jetgirl said...

Yay Tibetters. I wish I could be happier, but as a Helena fan, my ass still feels sore from IC totally screwing me over. le sigh

invisigoth said...

jetgirl, the English muffin will be back! Not to worry. I know how you feel though.
IC has fucked with me far too many times, too.

GOD! I just can't move my eyes away from Tibette's kiss. It's not just delicious, it's also desire and two empty souls being fulfilled!

Gah. I am so torn. I love Bette and Tina, but I also love what Jodi is doing to Bette... Urgh.

Damn, sweet to see TiBette action. The JoBette relationship is such a bitchfest, turning Bette into a subordinate, ball stealing bore-fest. So, bring on some actual heat for once.. LuH and JB don't play. Its great.

"This is for the Bette and Tina fans..."

Just like everything else in this fandom! Wow, way to go for doing something so different and original!

"This is something for the nutty Shenny fans"

Sorry, but nutty is hoping that two people in a completely fucked up and dysfunctional relationship that broke up FOUR SEASONS AGO should get back together. At least Shane and Jenny are good to each other and respect each other, which is more than any Tibette can ever say with a straight face and have me believe. And, anyway, we can't be that nutty if Mia and Kate both like and support the ship.

Personally, I think that Jodi and Tina are gonna hook up and both dump Bette for good. That'd be the best way for this season to end.

As a Tibetter... I thank you. Wholeheartedly.

It is the Tibette fans that have carried this show for the past five seasons! Sorry kids, but without the karate kick to the head that is Bette and Tina, this show would have been done three years ago.

Is Alice erasing that chart? WHAT OMG someone stop her! That's been there since season 1! It's like tearing down the berlin wall of L word! lol

Some people may not like it or be willing to acknowledge it but TiBette has made thousands of fans like me return to this show for the last 4 years. They're the shit. The straw that stirs the drink. If Jennifer Beals left the show after season 1 or 2 there would be no more show. I enjoy some of the other characters but I would not pay for Showtime if JB is gone.

I saw this episode in a private screening, and it's amazing. Ilene is right in saying that it's the best episode so far. I loved it.

Not a huge TiBette fan, but the after they started kissing I burst into tears because it seemed so soooo right. Sorry Jodi, you don't compare.

I'm not happy with Alice, at all.

Why aren't you happy with Alice?

Tibette were DONE over three years ago, so quit fooling yourselves. Their ill-advised fuck-fest in season two was a mistake, not a reunion, you fucking dummies. The same thing can be said for this kiss. Bette is being unfaithful to Jodi and Tina is encouraging that behavior, even though it's the reason she left Bette in the first place. "I'll enable someone I love to do something I broke up with and gave them endless torrents of shit and misery for!" Yeah, that makes all kinds of sense.

Tibette were DOA at the end of the season one finale. You lot are just deluding yourselves into believing that the corpse is still alive and kicking. Ilene never intended for them to be seen as a model couple or perfect couple - it's just the Tibettes, with their twisted view of what a perfect relationship is (ie. lots and lots of emotional abuse) who think that it was meant to last. Wake up and quit fooling yourselves. Nobody gives a shit about two old married straight women who have no chemistry with each other. In your little delusional universe, they might be the heart of the show, but just because you think so doesn't make it the truth. There's nothing sexy about Jennifer Beals or Laurel Holloman acting like high schoolers in some trite teen melodrama and there's damn sure nothing sexy about their agonizing love scenes. The biggest shame of all is that most of Tibette's fans are grown women who should know better and what scares me even more is the question - what kind of relationships have these women been in, that Tibette is actually something to aspire to be like? Yeesh. Gives me the shivers.

This fucking dummie here would like to kick your fucking rude ass!

Nice "anonymous", real nice.

I'm proud to say that I'm a Tibetter and have been since day one. Not because they are a perfect couple and not because they can do no wrong. They've clearly been portrayed as having flaws just like everybody else. If you can't see that, then I'm not sure what you're watching. I'm a fan, because like many people who've lost their way, hope springs eternal and my hope is these two can make it work. Somehow. Someway. That they can get back to the people they were when things were so great between them.

As far as the sex scenes, I don't know what you're watching but clearly Beals and Holloman bring it. So, if it pains you to watch, perhaps you should look away. Those of us who are Tibetters will watch it for you. Over and over again.

I'm not happy with Alice because she used to be my favorite character, and i feel like her character has changed for the worse. Why is she so judgmental towards Max, when she's bisexual, dated a vampire lesbian, and a "lesbian in a mans body".

And much as I love Alice and Tasha together, she has gotten all weird and mushy. I loved Alice when she was with Dana. I feel like she's lost some of her strength in order to be Tasha's "girly girl".

And why so much anger at the Tibetters, let the people have a little hope. After all it's a tv show: negativity+l word= oxymoron.

Turtlepants said...

Not a Tibetter, but you just know they're the show's staple ship. They're inevitably going to end up together again- it's the only happy ending this show can afford to have.

Also, why the hell is nobody giving notice to Alice recording a vid of the gay basketball star? She's so going to fuck over Tasha with that. Somehow.
