L Word redux

Now that a month and a half has passed since The L Word season ended, I feel I can finally look back at it without feeling abject horror/extreme sleepiness. It’s not that I thought the season was a horror, per se, but it’s just those goddamn Pre-Ls are a fucking pain in the ass to write. Seriously, after the season ended I was feeling a little posts-traumatic stress disorder (get it, posts…I know, ugh). My malaise could only be cured by prolonged vegging out in front of the television while I fought the urge to a) take notes and b) make screencaps. But now, after arduous rehabilitation and a CSI marathon, I feel I can begin to post again about the Ladies of The L.

So here goes. I’m going to ease back in nice and slowly with some pictures of what the ladies have been up to since the season finale. However, if I start having flashbacks, please put me in a dark, padded room for my own protection.

Jennifer Beals and Laurel Holloman at the GLAAD Media Awards.I swear, if those two get any hotter it will be illegal in three states. A few of you wrote in consternation over Laurel’s loose-waisted shift dress. Could this mean Tibette will be expecting next season? Well, since Laurel and her husband just adopted a baby girl, I’m going to go out on a limb and say no. Sometimes a shift dress is just a shift dress.

Marlee Matlin at a Dancing With The Stars party.Is it me or is Marlee relapsing into her L-ways with that hug? It’s a little, um, close.

Rachel Shelley on the cover of Diva magazine.Holy fucking hell. That is all.

Rose Rollins on the cover of Curve magazine.Holy fucking hell, those arms. That is all.

OK, now I think I can transition into video. Interestingly, all the women are guest starring on CBS shows. And CBS owns Showtime. Nah, there can’t be a connection.

Erin Daniels on CSI: NY.

I watched this live and was pleasantly surprised when Dana Erin popped on screen. I love that she’s all tough and kinda bitchy. And the pantsuits. Yum.

Kate Moennig on CSI: Miami.

Jet skits, lime-green bikinis, murder. Shane, girl, you’ve changed.

Rachel Shelley on Ghost Whisperer.

I’ve only watched this show once and was distracted from the story by Jennifer Love Hewitt’s cleavage. I think that might have been the point. Part II is here, by the way.

And now, I think I can deliver the coup de grace. Seriously, get comfortable and find your happy place.Jennifer Beals (with an assist from Alexandra Hedison, Ilene Chaiken and Daniela Sea) at the V to the Tenth Vagina Monologues celebration in New Orleans.

I could kill for clearer video. And also for Jennifer’s boots. She’s wearing fishnets, by the way.

Doctor, I’m cured. Is it January yet?

My life-quality has improved since I have seen Jennifer Beals performing "The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy."

Thank you. :D

Kate looks hot in CSI, as does Rachel Shelley in GH.

But the only thing that is distracting me from the Ghost Whisperer ep is Nikki Cox's lips! What's with the enormous sausage lips man???

OMG...LMAO...good thing I'm at home! But while you're killing for clearer Jennifer Beals, et. al. video, I'm dying for clearer audio!

amoeba-alisa said...

THE MOANING. *laughs hysterically* I've watched that like a dozen times today.

And @ theweyrd1: There is a better audio one, just look in the related videos. The picture is taken from a different angle and the likes, but the audio is significantly clearer.

TheWeyrd1 said...

Amoeba-alisa...thanks for the hint!

Hannah said...

better yet-- anyone know where I can buy Diva magazine in the US? I went to Boarders today and no luck!

And Jennifer Beals displays one of the many reasons why she made my AE Hot 100 list. Though ever since Flashdance, she has always been on my personal list and she just keeps getting hotter every year. It would be great to have that audio on my alarm to wake up to every morning. lol

Sorry Hannah, I wish I could help you but I have no info about Diva magazine...maybe you might want to email them to find out where you could buy it here in the US.

Melissa said...

I have such a huge crush on Jennifer Beals.
Also... I guess I'm the only one who actually LIKED this season of the L word?

cappuccinogirl said...

And now I'm going to have to shell out far too much money on DIVA at the English shop today. Like my obsession with French fashion mags wasn't enough already....
