What I’m Watching: The L Word: Generation Q

The L Word: Generation Q: Season 3, Episode 5 “Locked Out” (B+)

It’s hard to get attached to any of these relationships because they just are not dependable, though that also has to do with people not really trying to fix them. Tess was absolutely furious that she ended up locked out on the balcony of Shane’s apartment and that she was still unwilling to discuss why it was that she felt the need to cheat on her, and after all of that and when Finley finally showed up to let them back in, Shane’s response was to leave. They’re in business together, which is going to make the dissolution of a relationship that much more complicated. Finley pulling the fire alarm when Sophie told her that the person she slept with was the one performing there was the most literal bailing reaction possible, and now it’s just a question of whether Dani giving things a shot with Dre is just too awkward because of her role in Sophie’s newest relationship. I’m sad that Alice’s romance with Taylor fizzled out in such a big way, especially since they obviously have similar tastes, opting to go to the same movie the one time they weren’t doing something together! Even if they’re navigating eugenics, at least Maribel and Micah are on the same page and seem headed for eventual parental bliss without too much feuding. While Bette and Tina seem to have been forgotten by this show, Angie is still very much a character, and while she’s not obsessing over her new boyfriend, she got to have a very memorable bonding experience with her roommate that she handled very well.
