Omg screw you, TLW

Does anyone ever check this anymore? Well, y'know what, I don't care. Because I feel bad posting about this on my book blog. I did it anyway, but I felt bad. And I can't fangirl as much there. They have a vague idea of my fangirling capabilities, but nothing like what's really going on.

OKAY. So I started The L Word. That show I've avoided for ages because I thought it'd just be trashy. And then I watched 12 episodes on Sunday. Cleaning? Ignored. Laundry? Nope. Dinner? Eaten in the form of chips and salsa and hummus. Because it was all about damn Tina and Bette.

I can't even with them. At least in season 1. Because then EVERYTHING GOES TO HELL AND I CRY A LOT. 

Laurel Holloman as Tina especially. Damn, girl. I guess I liked her from the pilot (which I saw around 2 a.m. Saturday night). Just..her smile and her face and her voice and damnit. So because I'm so into Tina, when Bette, y'know, cheats on her (THE SHOW IS EIGHT YEARS OLD, DON'T YELL AT ME), I was punching the couch and being generally anger-flaily. Because HOW could she cheat on her? And with a carpenter? REALLY BETTE? They're together seven years and she does that. I cannot even. 

Most people who like the show seem to love Bette because she's Jennifer Beals and YEAH Jennifer Beals is great, and I do like Bette, but I want to punch her in the face for what she did to Tina.

Yeah, so season one was amazing and then they instantly rear back and start chopping at your heart with a spoon (we've all seen Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, right?). And you cry because season one made you love these characters, and now shitty thing after shitty thing is happening to them. I mean, you don't have to DO that all the time to have a good show. It's not like "oh, it's a drama, so our characters must be in endless pain." NO. BAD SHOW. STOP IT.
This is my one hope. I've basically been assured it's all going to be terrible from season 2 to season 5. But THEN the above happens. Namely, making out+ in an elevator. FANFICTION ON SCREEN. Thank God. I can't even believe I'm going to watch all of this. But I am. And I'm going to try to do it before December 6th when I go to NYC.

I so don't know if I can manage this. BUT I SHALL TRY.

Ahahaha, I've been avoiding the L Word too but you're making me rethink my decision.

Waaatch it. And then update and fangirl so I can read about it and pretend I've seen it, too. Yes. That seems like a good idea.

Going through my list of icons is like a museum of past fangirling.

I can totally do that. Because I really have no other outlet for freaking out about how incredibly sad and frustrating (but occaaaaaasionally amazing) it is.

haha i keep popping by the graveyard that is LJ too. I guess google plus was strangely the death knell? at least for peeps I know. and twitter...I finally got on that and damn so addicting.

I keep meaning to read your blogs but can't find the URLs. What are they?

I haven't seen L Word, but I'm addicted to That's What She Said. >.< mostly for the catchy theme song.

Oh hey... you making me actually wanna watch the good seasons of this. I've only watched the part of the series when all had already gone to shit.

I've heard people say the only good season is s1. But I know there's some good stuff in s5 and 6.
