2008-05-03T11:14:00.000-07:00

These re-caps are the only glue that keeps the world from falling off its axis and the universe from exploding into complete and utter chaos.
Because, s you well know,
"what starts in chaos ends in chaos"

Any chance of the season round-up coming soon?!?!!?

I can't die until I've read the quote of the season.

So help a girl out...please.

...and Nik(k)i was outside by the little pagoda. (But I believe that in your heart of hearts, you knew that.)

Thanks for 12+ hours of giddy happiness that past 12 months; I'm already counting down to '09. I'll be compulsively checking for mo' in my once-a-week bookmarks until then.

Awww I'm sad Tasha replaced Shane as # 1 on your hot list. Though Tasha is gorgeous, Shane will always be my number one :)

Thanks so much for another season of fantastic recaps. I had as much fun, if not more, reading your recaps as I did watching the show.

2008-04-04T12:22:00.000-07:00

anonymous - I'm sure there's a lot of starving children in Ethiopia who'd find that statement VERY offensive.

The conclusion of your sentence, btw, is "the light, reved up like a deuce, another runner in the night." It's commonly misheard as "douche," as in "some people are douchebags just for fun," but it in fact is "deuce," as in "'32 Ford Deuce Coupe," the car. Just an FYI!

your hot list is pathetic....

2008-03-30T17:46:00.000-07:00

I watched the last 7 episodes of the season last night, so I checked your blog today to get your take on all of it. Great stuff, per usual. Actually, it wasn't until reading this quote from Jenny that you typed out, "I am madly in love with someone," that I had another thought about those lines. When I watched it, I'd assumed it was Niki, but do you think she meant Shane the entire time? Makes complete sense of the "you broke my heart line" at the end. Ah, I'm probably reaching.

As for the Jodi art thing, I think she could have gotten the video of Bette pretty easily. They've been going out for a while now. The quality of the video said "camera phone" to me. It was less than 5 minutes, and several of the images repeated, so it was very, very little video. Bette was looking at the camera (phone?) in many of the shots, so she must have been aware of it. But the sound bites... that's more problematic. But, you know, we can't start expecting the L Word to make sense now. I still haven't gotten over season 1 where Bette can't get ahold of Tina on their phone, so she flies back from New York, except for the fact that every person they know is right with Tina the whole time, and they all have cell phones, including Bette's sister, but whatev, Bette couldn't find out what was up with Tina. And somehow Jodi got sound bites of Bette. Sure. Why not.

I look forward to your final wrap-up of the season...

PS Mades, your transcript from an L Word production meeting rocked my world.

ughhhhhh want your shirt so badly!! but we don't have hot topic in canada (thank god.) so i heard you're looking for interns. is that a totally joke, cause i would love to intern for you...i know my screen caps, and i'm a whiz at fcp (graduated from tv broadcasting) - i just haven't touched it in like 6 months but i'm sure it's like bike riding for cancer. so post an e-mail address up where can i reach you and brag about myself more or e-mail me at sing_sing_death_house@hotmail.com it's not my real e-mail...just one i've had since i was fourteen.

2008-03-26T06:56:00.000-07:00

Thank you Riese for a wonderful season of recaps, I love you almost as much as i love KC and Elka, and that's a lot :D

I will miss reading this at work hahahaha.

And I will miss the T&S references :D

Also, I hope Molly comes back next season because she's too damn cute...but that is wishful thinking.

BESOS!

P.S. I like your t-shirt too.

2008-03-25T19:37:00.000-07:00

agh alas it is over, no more will i try to talk to my girlfriend about the aceness/crapness of this program and have her look at me in utter shame?! (she dont do "gay shows????"stupid lezzer!) then look up ur recap to air my tiny views and agree with 99% of ur quotes!!!

untill next time rice/price/reise?riese/marie its been a ball(not a ball as in a toy but as in fun!!)

p.s you may be a hermit but dont forget to walk tinks we all know that stuffed toys have feelings about feeling...plus she may get fleas if she is just sat around!?!

umm helena talks to her children every single day on ichat.
from her island hut.
obvs.

and i didn't like that everybody else was all dressed up and tasha was wearing a t-shirt and vest.. i thought alice should have talked her into something a little nicer.

2008-03-25T15:46:00.000-07:00

Amazing recap as usual... I have to stop reading these in class because my professors always find it strange that I seemingly think Constitutional Law is hilarious! I was thinking, you should add Helena's children to the vortex! She hasn't seen them in 3 years!

2008-03-25T15:00:00.000-07:00

Now I sound retarded 'cause my post didn't post... durrrr.
Here it is:

I also totally dig your t-shirt.

I was just telling Oz that Tasha has surpassed Shane in the hotness factor for me on The L Word. So, props to your HOT list.

I totally just realized that Jodi's "art" piece was largely audio. Anyone wonder how exactly she edited that??? Just sayin...

2008-03-25T14:59:00.000-07:00

BTW, that previous post was by moi, SLICEY. I just happened to be signed into an account w/OZ's name at the top... just so y'all don't think I was talkin' about myself in the 3rd person. That would be weird.

2008-03-25T13:42:00.000-07:00

PRE -1: I, too, was aghast that it took so long for SOMEONE to mention my t-shirt, which I clearly didn't mention, because I knew you'd mention it (mysterious "you") so thank you to everyone who did. Cait & Crystal found it in Austin somewhere while I was in the hotel editing the uh huh her video, I can't tell you where because the words are unholy. okay i think it was at the hot topic party.

PRE-1 part two: thank you for all your comments, input, dialogue, so forth. Even though I can't respond to everything I do appreciate it all, and it's my favorite part too oftentimes.

1. I am so glad that other people have seen "Short Cuts." I think it's brilliant on so many levels, one of those levels is that I heart Raymond Carver and Robert Altman so so much.

2. rebyj - You make a lot of interesting points, and I think you may be onto something with Shane's self-destructive habits (foreshadowed by Jenny asking Shane what she would do if she'd been brokenhearted, like when they were outside the trailer). At this point it seems like there's no way Shane can still be getting genuine pleasure out of making the same mistakes for the 100th time. that's why I feel like she should be with jenny, because only someone who's known her all along would call her out for her bullshit, or be onto her tricks and not pay them any mind. Plus she seems to be on the same page with realizing the difference between physical and emotional intimacy w/r/t cheating.

3. I'd love to throw a contest with the prize of attending a party, but I feel like no-one would enter, hm. But I do think Tinkerbell would be kind of tempting, you're right.

4. reason #45 why tasha could be fashion police -- not like she takes any risks really, but she's never worn anything hideous! Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm sure y'all will.

5. I didn't hear what DD said to Cindi.

6. tomboy -I LOL'ed re: Shane looking through the keyhole like something would be in it, that was a joke I missed, I could've made that.

7. I'm really surprised there wasn't MORE outrage about the fact that we've got no idea how the f jodi filmed all that stuff. like, lawsuit?!

8. mades. amazing. also your reference to the fibonacci sequence reminded me of Square One when they did a case related to that sequence. I imagine the meetings to go just like that (especially, re: character development etc), like with Anonymous being like Dr. Evil in Austin Powers making everyone shut up as soon as they start talking. I was forced to watch that movie.

9. meg - you're not totally creeps. seriously, it's knowing that people like you exist that motivate me to keep writing this thing even when i have no more friends left 'cause i'm always recapping and everyone hates me. consequently, it's knowing that people like you exist that motivate me to plug on, so thank you for commenting and telling me your story.

10. If an SFU writer could take a crack at the l word ... god, all our heads would explode.
Written by jill solaway and directed by angela robinson, that's a dream team.

11. Re: Franklin. Obvs I was kiddddinnnggggggg I picked someone so hideous so that no one would get confused about my seriousness level. Or maybe y'all are just kididng too.

12. I guess i missed the kit-helena friendship because my attention level declines into non-existence when Kit's on screen. Every now and then, someone knows something that I don't, and I find that ... relieving.

2008-03-25T11:21:00.000-07:00

helena and kit have always been friends. putting tasha's going away party together? duh haha "i love planet cookies!" (season 4) that's what she was talking about...cookies, not coffee.

come on now.

ps. my friends and I were watching the shane and molly opening scene and totally thought "high art" too. and since when can shane take pictures? five episodes ago she could barely use max's video camera..

so distroyed by shenny drama!!

2008-03-25T08:07:00.000-07:00

I've never liked the episodes ilene directs. I hope they let Angela Robinson direct the entire 6th season somehow her episodes rock eve when the writing sucks.
My fantasy is that Angela Robinson and Kate Moennig get together and develop a good old PI type series where Kate plays a lesbian PI who gets the girl at the end of every episode.
Has anyone noticed that all the PI shows have a vampire in them? If thats a requirement these days then they could give her a hot lesbian vampire sidekick. Like Alice's friend Uta? (I'm not sure that was her name)

2008-03-24T21:09:00.000-07:00

These re-caps just keep getting funnier (and I'm sure have yet to peak). As others have said, I laughed out loud many, many times.
I especially liked your nod to the similarity of Tasha's career choice with that of Keith from Six Feet Under. If only the writing on TLW ever approached that of SFU- it would be a miracle. (BTW- All of your references were perfect/hilarious- Dawson's, office space, past l word seasons- I loved them all.)

2008-03-24T19:51:00.000-07:00

So this is probs totally creeps, but I'm going to say it anyway: I'm a lesbian in high school (about to graduate, thank God!) and I have no gay friends. Every week, I have to troll YouTube, Veoh, and other random video-sharing websites (most of them in Japanese) to try and find a grainy copy of the newest episode and then wait for it to load on our piece-of-shit PC and watch it all alone in our den, minimizing the window every time someone walks by (which is the same number of times that Kit says "Girl!" in each episode, coincidentally). And when I finally finish watching it, I always check out your recaps because it makes me feel like I'm actually watching the show with friends, and we're laughing at the ridiculous Kittisms and asking the questions no one else seems to about Adele. So basically what I'm trying to say is thanks for being my two-dimensional gay friends (even if you were unaware of it). I know it must be a bitch writing these recaps, but they mean a lot to me, so thanks!

2008-03-24T18:20:00.000-07:00

The following transcript was taken directly from an L Word production meeting. The means by which it was acquired cannot be disclosed:

Anonymous: “Alright everyone, you know the drill. We’re here to write the Season 5 finale, so let’s get moving. To begin with, any thoughts on Shane and Molly?”

Writing staff member: “I really like them together. I think we’ve actually forged a believable relationship here.”

Anonymous: “You’re fired. And in case any of the rest of you don’t know, this is an ODD numbered season, which means that the character of Shane will end in heartbreak. So....just make it work. Now, moving on to Bette and Tina, if we stick with the agreed upon correlation to the Fibonacci sequence, this will be an ‘on-again’ season.”

Writing staff member: “Don’t you think the audience has caught on to that by now?”

Anonymous: “NONSENSE. This meeting is over.”

Writing staff member: “Well, what about the other characters?”

Anonymous: “Fuck if I know, just make some shit up.”

Writing staff member: “What about plot continuity, character development, viewer empathy?”

Anonymous: “That’s all just fancy film school jargon for GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY SIGHT. I want that script on my desk Monday morning or else heads will roll.”

Aaaaaaand scene.

God, I haven't been much for commenting this season. This felt good.

2008-03-24T18:03:00.000-07:00

i just realized that so much stuff was left unresolved. i kind of hate the l word, and by kind of, i mean i totally hate it. also i love it. i have no idea what i am talking about. thank god it's over. to whoever asked where the shirt was from, the answer is hot topic, don't ask, cause i'm not gonna tell.
