Last Word/ Socials? You mean like socialites???

Man The L Word went out just the way it should have! Spoiler Alert. The thing about this show is that it's never really been about the plot. The plot i just there to serve character development. Whenever somebody asks me what the show is about I say "relationships." So I'm not upset that we don't know who killed Jenny. Admittedly I thought all along they were being super cheesy with their "I'm gonna kill Jenny" intros. I think the ambiguous ending pretty much atones for all that. This episode perfectly addressed Alice-Jamie-Tasha. It got to the heart of Bette and Tina being able to overcome anything. And really dove into all the messes that Jenny was creating around her. In the end I feel like Jenny was manipulative, but not malicious. I think she thought she was doing the right thing, but she was just severely misguided. I think that's what Shane saw in her. That is until she realized that she destroyed her chance with her true love. I think Shane will end up with Molly. Which btw, she now looks EXACTLY like Sybill! Anyway, this show will go down in history. Never before has their been a lesbian drama. They didn't have to be silly charicatures, but rather they were real people that anyone could identify with. Love is the most universal human theme and anyone objecting to this show never watched an entire episode. The emotional impact of the dvelopmnts matched with the music and closing credits is something that is so simple yet ultimately so powerful. As a straight male, I am so glad that I decided to pick that DVD up off the shelf at blockbuster. The L Word is television at it's best. And it will be missed. I can't wait to buy all the Dvds and watch it all over again.

The City

So I can't believe I'm watching this show. It's all Liz's fault. She got me hooked on this blog that posts the most hilarious recaps.

you really should check it out. But now on to this week. Whitney has feeling!?!?!?! What???? Yeah, she actually cried. And for the first time I started to think that maybe Jay actually has feelings for whitney. Probably not, but maybe. And how did MTV manage to get them, not a gig mind you, but a WEST COAST TOUR! Cmon. But It made for good television so more power to you MTV. Note: how funny was it to watch Olivia awkwardly ummm her way through that presentation. and umm the faces that all the people at the meeting made ummm. yeah she deserved it.

Anyway, i have a date on wednesday! it should be fun. but she's going to berlin on the 20th..boooo. i'm out
