When I DVR two shows at once, my TV stays on one of the channels. So tonight when the DVR finished taping Shameless (I haven’t watched that yet) some new show was starting. A show was just starting and I thought it was one of those legal shows I haven’t gotten around to watch yet on the major networks. It was a show called The L Word: Generation Q. This was pretty obvious from the first scene which was pretty much lesbian porn. It said it was season one, episode one so I decided to give it a shot. As it turns out there is a previous season called simply the L Word that I feel like I should go back and watch and get caught up.
Jennifer Beals, Kate Moennig and Leisha Hailey were/are in both series. I wasn’t really feeling the show which is basically about a lot of lesbians and the occasional gay guy or two living their lives. Jennifer Beals is running for mayor and things take a very interesting turn in the first episode. I was trying to get through my emails while watching this. I realized that I was probably not going to fulfill my life’s goal of becoming a late in life Meredith Baxter Birney because the lesbian sex did nothing for me. But I set my DVR to try it’s best to record and I will check out the first season and try harder to increase my lesbian tendencies beyond my sensible shoes and men’s pajamas. So far The first episode of The L Word season one isn’t that great.
Work In Progress
BUT THEN, A new series on called Work In Progress came on. I HAVE FOUND MY LESBIAN. This is my new favorite show. I can’t tell you anything about it because you must watch it yourself. I will tell you that on the first episode, Julia Sweeney who used to play the sexually ambiguous Pat is on SNL playing herself.
The main character Abby wrote the show and I think she might have been reading this site, lol. It’s a dark comedy and in the very first scene Abby experiences something that I have kind of experienced. Once for sure and possibly twice. Though the time span of what occurred was much longer for me. THIS SHOW IS FUCKING HILARIOUS. It comes on Showtime right after The L Word at 11 pm. If I could stream the whole series right now I would stay up all night to do so.
