What I'm Watching: The L Word

The L Word: Season 5, Episode 3 "Lady of the Lake" (B-)

I am liking these Jenny's book-inspired openings more and more every time. As far as the format of the show goes, things seem a bit too casual and on the up-and-up. Kit's seemingly traumatic yet extremely brief robbed-at-gunpoint fiasco gets drummed up to be this huge deal then completely sidelined in favor of Helena's return. Helena acts like she is all that in jail and then gets released to go off on her bold adventure, which should be interesting - but is she leaving the show? I hope not. After both Dana and Carmen had to leave, I cannot stand it if the best remaining character on the show had to leave. Bette's run-in with Jodi's friends at the cabin is entirely painful and awkward. Please make that stop. I could also go for Tasha's whole trial being done. Alice needs to give Max the time of day otherwise he is going to snap and that will not be good for anyone. Although he will soon get with Tom which should be amusing if nothing else. On the bright side, I like Shane's new attitude of solitude which is sure not to last, and it is good to finally see Tina get some action.
