    My only problem was it came across as very stereotypical. And the mom was waaaaaay over the top, IMO.

    Oh, I hope that Shane and Carmen stay happy forever...Carmen is muy caliente, and frankly, I don't think Shane has ever looked better. But I see too many obstacles between them and long-lasting happiness, mainly because of Shane's past, and Carmen's family. I know they love Shane now, but how will they react when they find out just how close Shane and Carmen really are?

    I'm probably just using incorrect analytical terms for these two headcases. Alice just never seems very sure of herself, while Dana atleast portrays an image of a confident woman. And, from what I gather, it was Alice's jealousy that caused them to break up, although I'm not sure if they've been entirely clear on that. Did Dana cheat on her, then break it off? Or was it Alice's jealousy which drove her into the chef's arms? Thats what I meant when I said that so much had changed since last season, and I'm kinda in the dark about what caused some of the changes.

    Leisha Hailey played in a movie where she had pink hair and was in a band and was also gay.

    I thought maybe she is gay in RL. Or maybe just type cast.

    I literally FF thru any scene with alice. Can't stand her. Since we can't talk about specifics here, i'll just say i liked the tazer gun thing. The social worker is annoying as heck, i can see what's in her future with the front steps :)

    My favorite line from this week's episode.

    "Let the butches unload the truck."

    The look on Shane's face was hillarious!

    I didn't get thru the whole thing yet but turning down a senator no doubt = no grant for her! Didn't she learn anything.

    I guess we will never find out what the social worker's decision is

    Talking about the social worker, Kit's son's reaction really bothered me.

    He didn't want to help out with Bette adopting Angelica because he thinks a child should be raised by both a male and a female. OK, fine---that's a reason to oppose same-sex adoption in general. But this child is already the child of a lesbian. The choices he faces aren't "have the child raised by a man and a woman" or "have the child raised by two women", they are: "have the child raised by the mother and her girlfriend" or "have the child raised by the mother and her girlfriend who is also a legal parent".

    All his opposition does (did?) is prevent Bette from legally adopting Angelica. It doesn't change who will be raising the kid...

    Very selfish...

    This week's show should have been titled "boobies, boobies, boobies!" :eek:

    My favorite line when Alice is sitting in front of the other chick in speed dating:

    "I"m a little low on sperm tonite"


    Shane! WTH are you doing? Besides Rosana Arquette ? Carmen is hot and sooooo into Shane.

    ETA: Wow, interesting stuff on Rosana Arquette.

    "which team do you play for....just kidding!" ....shoulda sued him but no witnesses. I guess all bound up it is hard to tell. Did i miss the part where the social worker decided if they keep the kid or not? I do skip some storylines because i'm not fond of those people.

    Whaddya think of the vampiress? It's the only reason I watch Alice's part now. Otherwise she was getting too insane to watch. Love the part where she realized she couldn't escape. Wish they woulda showed more of that.

    "act like you have a girlfriend" is another good line. That was pretty rude.

    I think Carmen overreacted to Roseanna Arquette showing up. Especially since Shane had no clue. However, her reactions afterwards, when she was proved wrong about Shane knowing, were just wrong. I think she pushed Shane into sleeping around. Shane had been faithful this entire time and Carmen didn't trust her. Shane tried to do the right thing, when she came to the party, but Carmen was ignoring her, and Shane didn't have the courage to push it, since Carmen was pouting. Now, Shane was wrong, most definately. However, I think she was supremely hurt.

    Of course, the stereotype for Latina chicks is that they're supremely jealous. :D One of my coworkers is married to a Latina and she has a major hissy fit if he even talks with a woman (he won't speak to me if he sees me in public if his wife is there).

    I think that Dana is going to have major issues with her girlfriend as well, and I think she's going to turn to Alice for friendship and moral support with the whole cancer thing.

    I like the fact that the younger guy is hitting on Kitt. His serenade was sweet.

    The vampire chick (Nosferatu - Uta Refson) was kinda funny. At least it is getting Alice's mind off of Dana. :D

    i've read several places that people saw kate and her g/f at several l word functions, including the olivia cruise, which was featured in season 2.

    two very easy ways to tell if someone is gay but not publicaly admitting it: obviously, unwillingness to talk about your love life, more often then not, is a good indicator you're gay. also, if a person talks about their love life (or lack there of) and never mentions gender, that's usally another good indicator.

    Carmen was ignoring Shane at the club? Carmen was working. Yeah, she was being all flirty with the big boys, but hey, ya gotta make a living.

    Oh, and that's not a stereotype about us latinas. It's true! :D

    why must girls be jealous? I always say if your partner is doing something you dont like, they you shouldn't be with them anyway, especially if there's not a marital bond, you can just get rid of them easily :)

    Does Showtime re-run L-Word after the season is over? I just got Showtime a couple of days ago, so I missed a lot of the current season. Should I start watching now or wait until the episodes replay so I can see it from the start?

    I thought that she looked up at Shane and continued to flirt with the boys. It seemed like a quick thing. Maybe I misread it.

    Now, I realized that the stereotype fit you when you were discussing friends with men thing in HH. :D
