So what did everybody do Sunday night, now that the L Word's fifth season is over? Anybody get out of the house, or have somebody over for actual conversation? Maybe even about something other than the L Word?
Might be something to consider for next Sunday. You know, just to change things up a bit. But I know going through L withdrawal is no fun. Here's an excuse to go back and watch the episodes again: Let's try to spot all the WTFs.
You know what I mean. Lord knows we complain about the show's questionable plot developments, random personality shifts and issues with general continuity. We suffer writing that makes us go, "Huh?'' How often does the dialog and the plot stuff takes us right of the story and makes us wonder what the hell the powers at the L Word are thinking. Like, are they not following along as closely as we are?
I mentioned a couple of examples earlier. There is Peggy Peabody telling Helena she is her sole heir, although in a previous season Helena establishes that she has siblings. WTF?
And there's the fact that Helena skips town after her stint in the slammer and then one fine day comes back to WeHo with no explanation about how she resolved her legal issues.
Also, wasn't it entirely out of character for Shane, who early on was established as the super-intuitive "Yoda" of the group, to be entirely clueless about Bette and Tina hooking back up? Shane woulda had their number. And, as much of a bad girl as she has always been, she has also always been incredibly loyal to her friends. Shane wouldn't have messed with Jenny's girlfriend. That just didn't ring true.
What about all the WTFs around Jodi's Bette-bashing multimedia art piece? And who did Alice turn into this year? Remember how many personality changes Tina had?
I' ll bet you guys have many more examples you can list right off the top of your heads. Plus, finding some beyond that will give you an excuse to watch your favorite episodes again.
So, come on, let's point them all out. We can even consider some of the WTFs of seasons past, if you like. Anything to pass the time without our favorite show. We had lots of fun finding the WTFs last year at the end of Season Four. Why not go another round? And yeah, even with the WTFS, we love the L Word. So what?
