Pre-L: Leaving Los Angeles

L604: “Leaving Los Angeles”
It's International Make Faces at Jenny Day! Knit your brow! Roll your eyes! Purse your lips! Be sure to play along at home. To make it even more authentic, superimpose Mama Chaiken's face onto Jenny's body. That way all the exasperation, incredulity and flat-out rage will be directed properly. For even more fun, turn it into a drinking game. Someone made a face at Jenny? Everybody drink! Though, if you're still conscious by the end of the episode it may be a sign of a more serious problem.

1. Also acceptable on IMFAJ Day, flipping the bird.2. (Who Wants Jenny Dead) WWJD 4: “I hate Jenny Schecter!”3. Now I can't see you making faces. Ney-ner, ney-ner, ney-ner.4. We are totally not thinking about doing it. We swear.5. Dude, I don't know how I get blamed for her death either.6. There is a joke here. But, like the G-spot, it's sorta tricky to find.7. Feel that? This is what Tina will do to me if I sleep with Kelly.8. You're damn right that's what I'll do to you, honey.9. Who knew business cards trigger Helena's Pavlovian response.10. Drink! Drink!11. Why, yes. This was the inspiration for my dress.12. Tell me you did not buy me a cheesy Vermont Teddy Bear.13. To all the girls I've loved before......whose T-shirts landed on my floor.14. The best thing about this episode. Period.15. The only man in America not happy to see two women kissing.16. Oops, did I not mention my homophobic folks over the phone?17. I call this one: Racial harmony through food symbolism.18. If only these were Shane's “secret ingredients,” then this threesome would happen a whole lot faster.19. Tasha. Tank. Arms. That is all.20. Really, they did what to your boyfriend? Harsh.21. Baby Alice? ZOMG, ponies!22. The apologetic jazz hands trend continues.23. This scenario can never end well.24. Hmm, maybe Jamie had Shane's secret ingredients after all.25. Why does Mama C hate Max so? Did he kill her dog?26. Maximum toy to child cuteness ratio achieved.27. Unsubtle juxtaposition of parental contentment in 3, 2, 1... Guestbian Count: 0

I like the crazy Jenny show line. They should change he name of the show this season to "The Crazy Jenny Show"staring everyone's lovable Jenny Shecter. Also staring a few other people.

Did you notice they let Rose wear a bra under her white tank? But they still can't buy a padded one for Shane. A little victoria secret push up bra might do wonders for Shane's self esteem.

Oh my goodness!
Words tend to fail me when it comes to "The L Word" lately.

Thanks for the Pre-L as usual Ms Snarker. You are the best! Wish I could say the same for this last season of the L Word. Ugh!

Thanks for uploading the pics!

...the show itself, what the frack?

I'm only watching to see Alex Hedison!

OMG Leisha was so cute even then!

Is it weird that I just don't care that much anymore? I think I'm watching out of obligation (I made it 5 seasons, may as well stick around for a short sixth). I've almost always watched the show for Bette and Tina, but, lately, it's getting ridiculous...

Max would've better served this show (along with our community) if he would've stayed Moira and tackled butch intolerance. I'm the exact opposite of transphobic, but this whole, incredibly inaccurate pregnancy storyline is making me cringe like nobody's business.

Bringing in a stable M-F later on would have a much better alternative.

Often, I get the vibe that Ilene wants to do so much in such a short period of time, and instead of getting quality (occasionally though-provoking) entertainment, we get this: Max in a Junosuit, and trangender defamation.

...I'm guessing this is also where the Shenny Ship sinks. Oh, well.

I get the vibe that Ilene is more like Jenny than we know. ;)

@Anonymous #1 - Some women have small breasts and actually have more than enough confidence in themselves and who they are that they don't NEED to do anything external like wearing a push-up bra. Might be a shock to hear it, but not everyone's identities are tied up in how big their tits are. Shane's self-esteem issues have far more to do with the fact that her friends treat her like shit than the fact that her tatas need a boost. ;p

Sarah - The Shenny ship sinking? Keep dreaming! Shenny are going to beat the odds this season, mark my words!

whites have black eyes, too,
it's not about race.

you don't get forever
what's the real matter.

there could be no argue when i say

i have the colored eyes and red hair. i read your post and thought
that, is this about me?

but read the reply under the post
says, the red hair person actually
have grey eyes or minght have green
means, the image doesn't relat with me.

i saw a black who has blue eyes,
so you don't have to jealous him because you don't have it.

use contact lens.

I'm watching this season because I'm incredulous that anyone would destroy their own "child" the way IC has destroyed The L Word.

push-up bras are just false advertisement.

Oh, gawd, no more pics of that shemale, max. BARF!

Shenny is just soo gross. I'm glad Jenny gets killed. I'd hate the show to end with Shenny alive.

ieatdogsnamedtwinkie said...

Okay, just to get this out there... but has anyone else wondered where the eff did Molly disappear too?
I swear, Mama C tosses all these characters to us, then they disappear, without a trace or a note.

Oh, and Baby Leisha is so adora-bib-bul! It just adds to Alice/Leisha's too-darn-cuteness.

Why is Max pregnant?

From the previous comments ppl are just hanging around since they've made it this far. Personally, if I survived season 3 (which I hate...cause T & B were crazy fighting) I can last 8 more episodes.

The show is being rushed which is a bad move for IC. She should've just wrapped up the show instead of creating new storylines...Max being pregnant, 2nd child for B & T, Bette creating a new partnership...so much.

Hoorah said...

OK, so who has brown, curly hair and is hugging Tasha and Alice? Niki? She wasn't in the second episode except for the tag part at the beginning. Molly hasn't been in since the first episode. So maybe since they actually have a contract they get some screen time... Good stuff. I hope it's Molly :] But Kate French is hot too...

I'm so sorry Jenny will die. I've really grown to like her a lot. Mia K. is by far the best actress in this show.

Angelica is one damn cool kid. :)

Anonymous said...

i don't think MK is a great actress becoz it's a typical "rôle de composition" repetitive and without any subtility.madness is the easiest for every actor and she proves it and her inability in sexy scenes is obvious,she doesn' play emotion or sensuality in a good way,that's jenny and kirschner mimits...
overrated...

Soarkling Angel said...

HI. I think it is Helena hugging Tasha and then Alice.

Anonymous said...

Ilene IS Jenny. Making the mistake of treating diary entries as fiction.
"Dear Diary. Today I read about a pregnant man..."

The whole Max inaccurate storyline just makes me very frustrated. It doesn't truly reflect.

Oh, and I'm so glad Angelica stayed, unlike all the L-word kids who vanish from the surface of the earth. She's a cutie, but so were all the other kids... Too bad. heh.

Your right bad joke sorry.

Dorothy, you need an article on Clementine Ford (Molly in the L-word)... Apparently she's out (or in a relationship with a woman!)

Hannah said...

Even though there is so much going on on the l word now, so many different storylines being hastily wrapped up, it's less interesting than ever. The only storyline that I think is even remotely fascinating right now is the Helena-Dylan thing...

ps: I just bet Max killed Jenny, too. That would be a nice finish for the "transgender people have nothing but problems" line.

i watch this show only for jennifer beals....
nothing to add....
shane,jenny,max etc...total BS and no sensuality...
and Chaiken ...??? !!!! pathetic
i love your blog

Starbuck said...

I recently found your blog and I LOVE it! : D

10. Why does it look like Tina has her finger buried in her cheek and is hooking her finger under the skin?

Man it is SO obvious that Bette is going to sleep with Kelly, for once can't she keep it in her trousers?

Tasha's arms... Need I say more? *grins*
