Still watching The L Word
on DVD. I continue to be impressed how much license they're allowing themselves to make their characters irritating. Oh, and real.
The show has a high squirminess factor for me. I'm so used to the other shoe dropping, and on The L Word
, you never know whether it's going to or not. I keep expecting Shane to implode in predictable ways -- after all she's an ex-junkie -- and she doesn't. I keep expecting Tim to take Jenny back, and he doesn't. I kept expecting Tim to catch Jenny with Marina, but the show took its sweet time getting there.
You can get away with a lot of good writing when people are tuning in to watch lesbians.
