What I'm Watching: The L Word

The L Word: Season 5, Episodes 10 & 11 "Lifecycle" & "Lunar Cycle" (B+/B)

In my haste to catch up on all my reviews, I completely forgot about last week's episode of "The L Word", so I'll mention that one quickly now. Though there really should have been a whole lot more mentions of Dana (if I were Erin Daniels, I'd be pissed!), the bike ride worked out pretty well as far as furthering the plot goes. Finally, the Bette-Tina affair is revealed, and they pulled that off pretty well. This week's episode, on the other hand, is pretty crazy. I really doubt that Adele's blackmailing would work so well and quickly, but at least her motives are out on the table. And how could Ivan sell out half of The Planet to the She Bar girls? I was quite worried about some near-death shoot-outs with Kit, but luckily, coincidence to the rescue. I hardly realized it, but next week is the season finale. The show has just been renewed for a final season of eight episodes to air sometime in early 2009. I think this show could still have a few years in it, especially since this season has proven that it can bounce back, but I guess one more year is all we're going to get.
