    I'm glad the social worker came back..that part of the show bugged me. And no way should they be able to adopt as nasty as the worker doesnt' like them.

    What are everyone's thoughts on last night's show?

    I was disappointed to see Helena get served with a sexual harassment lawsuit...her and Dylan looked great together in my opinion. Did Dylan/Danny have it out for her all along? I like Helena this season and hopefully she can use all that money of hers to get out of this mess.

    I liked the 80's-themed party that was thrown for Moira/Max...although she/he is not a character I particularly like.

    The Dana situation is just sad. :(

    I didnt get to see the whole episode. But have tried to keep up lately wiht it when I can.

    Not a fan of Max/Moira either. The face hair creeps me out, and she/he is too whiney. THey went to all that trouble throwing the cool party to get money for him/her and then he/she threw a fit because it was not enough. Give me a break, grow up and leave the show please.

    I want to kow when Dana is going to admit that she ran off her GF and stop lying about her leaving her.

    The latino gal is so cute but I dont get her relationship with the gal shes with, they dont seem to be the same types/couple...is it just me?

    I was actually glad to see it. It really bothered me that Helena kept telling Dylan that she had better (bleep) her and that she always gets what she wants. At first I couldn't understand how Dylan could sue her without having had Helena's consent to the taping, but then I remembered that it was HELENA who did it. She screwed herself, pun intended.

    Jenny and Max just bore me.

    Tina, we get it, you're into guys again. Get it over with Bette and put her out of misery. She's too needy and whiny. Plus, you know she'll be over Tina as soon as she sees the next hot gal.

    As for Carmen and Shane. After Carmen came out to her mom her mom said she'd rather have her daughter be a whore than a lesbian!

    I for one was enjoying the whole Helena - Dylan relationship. Last season I thought Helena was complete bit*h, but this season we've seen her develop a little and I have started to like her. I *loved* the whole "I won't give you anything until you **** me" scene. I saw it as playful and sexy, not Helena being a spoiled brat. Of course, I was clueless that Dylan was playing her while my partner was aware of it all along. Too bad it's over though...no more awesome, uh, bedroom (or where ever) scenes. :eek:

    I still can't figure out if Dylan was playing Helena the whole time or if this sexual harassment suit was born after Dylan told Danny about her relationship with Helena?

    The whole Tina - Bette things needs to resolve itself one way or another. Bette screwed things up by cheating last year and then Tina screwed up again by taking Bette back and asking her to co-parent. Bette really bugs me and I definitely have more sympathy for Tina. I wonder what will happen with the adoption thing.

    So what happened to Carmen? She totally started flipping out and it doesn't seem entirely in synch with her character as we saw it last season. I'm hoping she and Shane work it out though - I like them as a couple.

    And the hot question...are they going to kill off Dana next week? I hope not...

    pawchickapawpaw! This show was slowly moving toward porn lately! I said a few weeks ago (I think it was during the vampire date and the Carmen/Shane shower scene) that it was a boobie fest!

    Glad not to see psycho Alice and a more grounded/responsible Alice. She's what Dana needs right now. Poor Lara, she could never replace Alice.

    I hope they don't kill off Dana ... I like her on the show.

    As far as Carmen and Shane, I really like that relationship, it's nice to see them together, even though they are so different. Shane is really trying. As for Carmen coming out to her mom the way she did... wow, I wasn't expecting that. Carmen was pretty nasty to Shane, though, when she said "What do you know about Family?"

    I agree, Tina, get rid of Bette, and get on with your life, with a woman, a man, neither, or both!

    As for Helena, I can't believe she would video tape her saying those things..... I don't think Dylan was doing this on her own, though... I really think it was the boyfriend who put her up to it.

    And that's a problem? :p :D

    I'm with you on the Alice thing - very good to see her grounded with Dana. Although, the crazy Alice made for some funny TV! I seriously hope we don't see Dana die in the next episode.

    okay, max is annoying me. carmen and shane are annoying me. bette and tina are annoying me. other than alice and kit, i'm growing really tired of this show. i've said it before and i'll say it again: this was conceived, produced, written and directed by out lesbians. i can't believe they want the viewers to think this is the way most dykes act. just give me one stable, loving relationship between two women of consenting age, for more than one season! is it really too much to ask?

    BFE, So....
    I wonder if Max's problem is the steroids that he/she is taking. They weren't prescribed by a doctor, so they could be the wrong dose. Also, gender changes require MASSIVE amounts of counseling/therapy to deal with the issues that Max is having to face. S/he isn't doing any of that. It is time for Jenny to stop that relationship.

    Carmen's sister telling her that she was being selfish about telling her mom angered me. There is no 'good' time to tell that one, and keeping her in the dark was only making things worse. Carmen has been rather emotional as of late, so it doesn't surprise me that she had that outburst with Shane. I also think she was jealous of Shane's close relationship with her mom and wanted to sabotage it a bit.

    As far as Dana, she's still in love with Alice. That's part of the reason why she ran Lara off. She has become very emotionally attached to Alice through her recovery. She'll need to learn to give up that crutch. Next week's episode looks like it will be an exciting one with regards to Dana. I wonder if her parents and Lara are going to come out of the woodwork.

    I think Helena has been set up from the beginning. Dylan obviously likes her and it is killing her to set her up. You could see her anguish at 'having to do it.' The fact that she kept asking for more money for the project and Helena kept giving it to her, to the point of using her money and not the studio's money (they stopped being willing to pay out), makes me think it was a setup from the beginning. I'd bet that Dylan has always been gay and that the boyfriend was a fake and part of the setup to lure Helena in.

    Bette is obviously in pain. She needs to let Tina go. However, Tina also needs to make a break from Bette instead of stringing her along.

    Agatha, I was thinking the same thing about the steroids. I've never known anyone personally who changed gender but from what I understand it is a long emotional process. And like you said she/he has done nothing to make it happen aside from taking the quick "diet pills" route.

    Dylan, yes she was definately pained to be doing what she was to Helena. The guy sure thought it was fun. Ironic that after all this time of hating Helena we now feel for her!

    Why are people on TV's relationships so extremely messed up. I guess because it's more entertaining than normal one? I dunno, I find myself cringing alot this season because of all of the stuff going on.

    You lesbians are as bad as the boys! ;) :D I gotta admit though, the scene with Helena and Dylan was preeeeetty steamy!


    Are the matching tattoos on Carmen and Shane a sign of commitment?

    Steamy? This show is one step below pr0n! ONly with great story lines!

    Id say yes on the tattoos. However, I have issues with a woman who would hold a grudge for days over a dream. However we do know Shane is not the most faithful but that still doesnt make a dream a reality and worth being rude to someoe over.

    I meant (here I go again with what I mean eh?) since I'm not gay, that even for me that scene was steamy. Am I getting myself deeper into trouble here? Queer as Folk was like this show too, except with men, but I didn't find it steamy. I think Showtime is one step below Skinemax when it comes to showing stuff like this.

    Wasnt a big fan of QAF. I found that it felt more like an excuse to have lots of gay sex evreywhere. And every guy in the show was sleeping with eveyrone they knew and people they didnt.

    I like the L Word because the characters are more interesting. I wouldnt mind if the show was less pr0n and more interactions of characters.

    Perhaps, but "bad" in such a "good" way! :D

    Matching tattoos are a sign of some kind of attachment between two people IMO. There's certainly no stereotype there, at least not one I'm aware of. In Shane and Carmen's case, I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a commitment, but it definitely signals their attachment to one another.

    I think the grandma realized what the matching tattoos meant and was okay with it, but Carmen's mom, obviously, has major problems with Carmen being gay. I'm sure part of that is just her protective instinct over her baby. Moms are like that.

    I also watched QaF. In the beginning, I would watch the sex scenes. After a while, I just FF'ed through them. I do that with most of the sex scenes on L word. I'm more into the story line.

    I agree with rkester about Carmen holding a grudge over the dream. However, I think it was more an excuse to be able to hold onto her 'mad' at Shane.

    Anyone watch tonites ep?

    Just got done with it. I so hate this show for pulling on me the way it does.

    So why can't I stop watching it?

    Makes me want to scream, seriously!

    And yet I keep coming back. I have missed a ton of the first episodes of the show, so I guess I need to admit Im loving it and get the box sets.
