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

The L Word: Generation Q: Season 3, Episode 7 “Little Boxes” (B+)

I’d say that, in the grand scheme of things, everyone was up by the end of this episode. Things didn’t look great for Finley at the start and for Sophie in the middle, but ultimately, everyone is looking relatively happy at the moment. I was happy to see Carrie again, who is a great sponsor for Finley, though her unwanted intrusion in Carrie’s romantic process threatened to drive them apart. But it was sweet that Misty did show up and they had a nice dinner together which Finley knew well enough to leave. Getting a heart on her text to Sophie was a win, but ignoring a call from her mother means that she’s going to retreat into loneliness, which won’t be good for her. The new Sophie was quite something, and she managed to upstage everyone at the party before apparently getting serious and turning in an application while trying to block out the sounds of Maribel and Micah loudly having sex. Micah finding someone just like him to be a sperm donor was entertaining, but not as much as Sophie making out with the guy’s wife on the dance floor. Dani could easily have killed Sophie, but fortunately she chose a different route and instead put herself out there and made a well-received move on Dre. I thought something was going to happen with Fletcher, but this made more sense since Dre can stick around for a while. Tom may not be the “one” for Alice, but they can still be good for each other in different ways, even if it’s just professionally and for animal-related reasons.
