Watch Girl/Girl Scene Webseries, See Hot Ladies, Panties, Sexy Things

Whitney’s Team Pick:

Reasons why you should watch the lesbian webseries, Girl/Girl Scene:

1. Hot ladies
2. Funny, well-writen dialogue
3. Hot ladies

Number one and three on the list might be pretty obvious off the bat (I mean, hey, have you seen the cast list for this thing?) but number two took me as a bit of a surprise when I watched the first episode. You can’t really blame me for not knowing what to expect, writing-wise — there isn’t an astronomical number of queer fictional webseries out there, and there’s a universal tendency toward ill-put lines like “CALL ME YONDER, ALAS, TO THINE BOOTYCALL” in a lot of web productions.

But Girl/Girl Scene is genuinely funny. I actually cracked up a few times watching the show, and coming from me, Whitney “I Don’t Find Many Things Funny, Which Is Weird” Pow, that’s a pretty good thing. Of course, I’m one of the last people to know about the writing chops on this show, as Girl/Girl Scene won Best Screenplay Award at the 2010 World Independent Film Expo (WIFE for short, which is a pretty great acronym).

Girl/Girl Scene is filled with expectedly interlocking, twisty relationships and storylines, and while the show centers on lesbians, it also features a cast of unconventional queer, straight and trans characters. The show stars Jackson E. Cofer, a transman actor and activist, as Elliott, the transboy best friend of babydyke Jessie; Cindy Allen plays Susan, the middle-aged, self-professed “cool mom” to said babydyke Jessie (Susan ends up having twisty drama as well); and Santana Berry plays Tyler, a petite, pixie-cut, extremely queer rabbinical student (as in adorable rabbi to-be).

As always, there are the classic character draws, too — Tucky Williams, the show’s creator and scriptwriter, plays Evan, the soft-butch, throaty-voiced, tie-wearing, swaggery womanizer and generally all-around hottie (I’ll insert a coughShanecough, as the comparison’s been made before); Joe Elswick plays the 16-year-old woah-I-didn’t-know-I-was-a-lesbian-until-dot-dot-dot-happened Jessie. Kate Moody plays Zoë, Evan’s best friend, with a well-balanced mixture of insanely neurotic and insanely great comedic timing; Zoë is getting over a bad psychotic ex and does meditation and yoga to counterbalance all that negativity (“It doesn’t help,” she says bluntly).

I’m not going to spoil the plotlines for you, but so far Girl/Girl Scene  is on its first season with seven episodes to boot — you should watch and get caught up in all of the drama, makeouts and panty shots. While you’re at it, you should probably check out Girl/Girl Scene’s Tumblr, as it has the best stock of hilarious / sexy / cute gifs taken from the show — a gif for every possible moment (from awkward to sexy to awkwardsexy).

      I really really really want to love this show, but some of the acting is cringe-worthy. I feel awful for even saying that but it’s hard to get through some of the scenes! Some of the actors are great, but some of them are just…..not. :( Tucky Williams insane hotness is almost enough to get me to watch the show but it’s difficult….

      Now I feel like an ass.

      i actually was going to say the opposite! overall there is a lot of believable acting in it, proportionally more than other webseries i’ve seen (basically ALL of anyone but me/anywhere but here something like that).

      i also started on episode 7, the most recent one, and i think it was much better than 1-3 acting wise. check that one out maybe.

      and maxine is HOT.

      i love love love this series. when will we get more?

      completely agree! I couldnt tell if it was the acting or writing or both, but i suppose the writing is “technically” good since its won awards or whatever… theres just something off about that show..

      Actually really love the actress that plays the mom, very believable, and yes at times annoying, you know like a mom. Don’t like any of the male actors (sorry i’m not a hater but they’re really weak) and I question some of the storyline which at times can be choppy.

      However, all in all a talented cast. Question, will the characters ever be allowed to smile or be happy ?

      Hmm, guess everyone is a critic.

    I’ve only watched the first episode so far, but I LOVE the mom. Imagine if Spencer’s mom had been this cool.

    I can’t wait to see what she does when she finds out that her daughter is indeed not “crying about a boy.”

    Yeah, I agree, SOME of the acting is really bad, some of it’s good. The actors are pretty much all hot and the story is good. I feel like it’s almost a show about people I know…

    That being said, I must enjoy it because I watch all of the 7 episodes in like, 2 days last week. I laughed and I cried and it’s overall a good show.

    WHENNNNN is the next episode coming out??

    I really really like this webseries. It’s better than some other ones, and they’re long episodes so it doesn’t have that same “blink and it’s over” feel with Anyone But Me.

    Note: Evan >>> Shane. I would sex with Evan. I wouldn’t let Shane come near me.

    I have been a fan of the show since the beginning of the past summer, and the episodes just get better and better. And in my opinion, yes some of the acting isn’t great but that just adds to the small time feel of the show, which is great by itself. Plus, in one of the later episodes Hunter Valentine is featured. If that isn’t an incentive to watch, I don’t know what is.

    LOL I LOVEEEEE the episode with Hunter Valentine!! so yeah….
    Some acting is bad, some is good. They are indeed hot and the plot line is interesting enough to keep me entertained..

    I saw this when it first came out and I think the most impressive element is how long the episodes are. This length for a webseries is super ambitious and I’m blown away that they pulled it off not one but seven times.

    I love this show. I agree with @Kati, not all lesbian web series are super quality and the production of this show blows most of the other web series out of the water. And a lot of web series are 4 to 8 minutes long and humorous, but can’t go into too much depth, not that I’m knocking the other web series, I like a lot of them, even the 4 to 8 minute ones, but with Girl/Girl Scene being full length, well made and with good story lines and character development – I like it. Plus, like @Kati said again, Maxine is hot, like really hot. :)

    I live in the city where this show is shot, and it’s bizarre to see all the different places I go every day. Doodles Cafe is right next to my school. That other white building next to it is a funeral home. etc.
    Also, Tucky Williams is too hot for words and makes me want to melt into a puddle and fall off a cliff. HER VOICE, ASKJAOWIEFNFUNAIWUEGHHWEHOIJK
    So far it seems like a decent show.

    If a mainstream show showed a male bodied person being physically intimate with an underaged female, would anybody put up with it? Or talk about the parts of it they liked? V. irresponsible writing. Don’t have them making out.

      Ummmm Pretty Little Liars? Ezra (the teacher) and Aria (the student) are shown kissing and scenes left to interpret. He is a male she is a female and the show is pretty popular. Yeah it may be weird no matter what the situation is but it is used with both male and female roles throughout many movies and shows. I get your point but I just wanted to point out that it is not entirely uncommon on a mainstream show to see an of age adult with a minor or between an older male and younger female.

        Popular doesn’t mean worthwhile or even not destructive. A lot of common nonsense should stop and now.

        I’m boycotting this site. I liked it, I felt empowered and connected and now I’m disgusted that if this filth gets airtime and there’s not a question about showing it that this site is harming the queer community and queer youth and I’d be doing a disservice to LGBTQIs to visit it. This material isn’t queer, it’s not positive, it’s not healthy. This site is promoting drug abuse, alcohol abuse and sex with minors as queer and that’s really irresponsible. Make your own label instead of hiding behind one that’s getting enough mud thrown at it for no reason instead of fueling the fire.

    I like the series alot and I don’t find anything wrong with the of age/underage thing because, 16 is the legal age of consent and it was consensual. There’s also no abuse of power like teacher/student for example and that could happen at any age. If Evan had known yes kinda weird then but she didn’t and she saw her at an over 18+ place. I blame idiot bouncers for not checking ID’s better.

      i agree. i think what saves it is that evan is horrified when she finds out. it’s not like she set out to take advantage of a teenager – kind of the opposite, actually.

        Yeah, it happens a lot and they showed a hearty helping of an adult making out with a minor and glorifying it. Both of these things are an issue. I figure it’s one thing to show it and another to write it in so the issue gets explored without having them make out in a provocative way. I don’t know if 18 is underage for consent in some places and also who’s going to define what sex is? I don’t know if they had sex in the show as I lost interest.

        I figure the character’s responsible for checking her own assumptions and I also suppose it’s possible to be that unaware. On some level lack of awareness is always a choice.

          Look, you’re vomiting all over this comment section, but since you stated that you never bothered watching the show, know this: the whole “underage/statutory rape” deal is explored and IN THE SHOW it is clarified that nothing illegal happened and that legal consent was given. So. Your ranting about making out with a minor doesn’t really stand since Jessie isn’t a “minor” in the legal sense in terms of sexual consent.

      If it happens btw. students/ teachers and I were to write about it, it’d be better for myself and others to not make softcore porn out of it and actually explore the issue so as to help underaged kids. This kind of writing is an enabling of abuse and sexualizes youth and excuses criminal acts. Some uninformed hater is equating pedophilia w/ homosexuality w/ PennState and then this kind of crap shows up on the internet and I’m supposed to say the queer community absolutely doesn’t condone sex with minors or sexual abuse when AS is putting this stuff up in its articles and ads? Is that really all we have to talk about? That’s not queer it’s crap and it’s disgusting. Live a life for more than womanizing and drinking and put something on the internet to inspire young queers about their possibilities in life instead of proving conservatives right and being part of the problem.

    So, disclaimer…I’m not familiar with lesbian webseries and don’t know how good this one is “relative” to the others…but judged on its own merits…sigh. There’s definitely still room in the creative market haha.

    The acting is cringeworthy enough for me to be embarrassed to watch it in front of anyone. That said, the make-out/”sex” scenes are hot enough that I watched the entire series in one night. I’m leaning toward the “pretty much daytime soap opera quality” end of the scale :p.

    I think there’s two big flaws re: the show…1.) 99% of the plot revolves around romantic relationships/relationship issues, and it’s already getting mad tiring. Though, not entirely unbelievable (*sigh* lesbians). The crazy aggressive dominatrix ex…yeah…who doesn’t have one of those (sad thing is I’m not being facetious).

    2.) There’s flawed characters, and then there’s downright f-ing annoying characters. Besides Zoe (who – spoilers ahoy – stop right now if you give a damn – jets out of town halfway through), everyone is so mean spirited and/or generally a douche that I just want to punch them in the face half the time.

    Oh well. I’ll watch for the make outs and fastforward through any bad acting/slow plot points haha. That’s what I do with the Real L Word ><

    But, to not be a complete downer, there are some really great moments. When they're at dinner together and you get a glimpse of Jessie and she's wearing silly bands…oh, that was just great, and showed how immature was in a really subtle and kind of hilarious way. I like the /idea/ behind the storyline with the mom but I don't know that it was executed well (haha going to the same bars as your kid…I think someone wrote into Dan Savage about that once!). And I agree with another poster who said the acting improves as the series goes on (or maybe you get used to it?).

    Well, I'll keep watching…kudos to the girls who are putting a lot of effort into this, I can see this being a great platform for them to keep developing as artists/writers while giving the gay girls everywhere something to watch instead of going to the gym or doing homework. (hah!)

    Oh I have more things to add. I think the mom is also not douchey (which sucks because everyone treats her like she’s this huge douche and her daughter is a bratmobile), though admittedly totally clueless, but moms are like that eh?

    Aand the lead character’s (more spoilers-ahead-stop-if-you-care) insinuated love for Zoe is also pretty cool and tones down her douchey-pedo tendencies (I am with other posters on the not-feeling-the-love-story with Jessie…maybe if Jessie was actually a mature, cool girl, but she acts like she’s 12…just makes the relationship all the more gross haha…PLUS I had to listen to the cop preach about how it wasn’t illegal…like it’s generally healthy for a 16 yr old to be in a relationship with someone who has graduated college…yeah right. Maybe they were drawing parallels between how gay marriage is illegal or something. IDK man.)

    Hot ladies? Not really. I mean, not for TV standards. Nice looking, though. The only part I truly dislike is the FTM character getting to be considered as date material by a girl who calls herself a lesbian. To me, once you transitioned (or if you really want to cross it over), you already belong to the opposite sex. Dating him is having a straight relationship so a lesbian she is not.

    I’m a fan. In response to the main criticisms:
    1. It shouldn’t be watched because it involves people doing morally wrong things – this is bad logic and leads easily to censorship. We shouldn’t only allow art that is morally instructive. It’s just as important to see that a questionable sexual pairing can be hot, and think about that, than to pretend that stuff never happens.
    2. The acting or writing is bad – I see that it has a campy quality and it doesn’t have the same cadence as commercial TV, but I like it that way. You have to actively suspend your disbelief, and I’m fine with that.
    Anyway, 1 and 2 are both valid reasons to not want to watch it, but as for me, I’m into it.

    I love the obvious Hunter Valentine advertisement. I’m watching the one where they play a show right now. Because when I actually went to see them with Sick of Sarah, I…was kinda drunk and didn’t get into their set at all.

    (I was the perfect amount of drunk for Vanity Theft before and Sick of Sarah after, however.)

    A few lines slayed me. “HAND SANITIZER IS NOT LUBRICANT!” for one. I also liked “Fuck the pain away.” “That’s what I do.” line.

    While I liked it enough to watch all the episodes one after the other, I found the interconnected between the characters too ridiculous for me to suspend disbelief. Still, entertaining.

    Wow. Um. I really identify with Jessie. I’ve never been so bold as to get a fake ID and get into a club with it– but I really sympathize with her. My first time having sex was when I was 16, and I was dating a 22-year-old. I told her my age which was the truth, and that I had slept with other ladies before, which was a lie. But in retrospect, I don’t regret it at all. The sex was awesome, and she was awesome, and she seemed pretty into me, too. In the end, I broke off the relationship because I hated that neither of us felt comfortable being public about the relationship to our friends and family.

    So I see where Jessie’s coming from. It sucks to have a really nice thing– or even the potential for a really nice thing– ruined by an age difference. And if her situation’s anything like mine, it’s not like there’s a ton of interested women in my age group. I can see how others might view it as morally wrong or gross, but neither Jessie nor Evan seemed to have a problem with each other just as they represented themselves, in a consenting and legal scenario.

    I also just watched all 7 episodes (in 2 nights while I am stuck at my parents house for the holidays) and I am addicted but I am also super confused. I will definitely keep watching but I just feel like the whole plot is so scattered. I tried explaining the show to a friend and couldn’t. There have been numerous times where I think Evan is going to reveal that she is a vampire.

    Don’t get me wrong I like the show and am super happy for a long lesbian and trans-friendly (kind of) webseries. But I AM SO CONFUSED!?! Where is the plot? Why are there so many different storylines going on at once? I feel like I am in lesbian webseries overload and my mind is going to explode!

    . . . but I am going to keep watching

    I was that 16 year old with a fake ID hanging out in a lesbian bar and there IS a lot of reality (and absurdity) in this web series. I am glad I survived and got out of that. I think this is different from true pedophilia(I agree that Evan is saved by being horrified). Now all that being said, do I think this is positive role model material? Um no but its like a train wreck soap opera you can’t stop watching. And its got sexy sex scenes and it can be funny and entertaining. And not everything is meant to always be positive role model material – maybe this show is for the mature lesbian.

    tucky williams is hot as hell. her tall stature, the ties, and the topping. hot. the woman who plays maxine-GORGEOUS and extremely well put together. i wish somebody would give the girl who plays jesse a fashion tip though. for real. overall, i think the show lacks a plot, there seem to be no platonic friendships, and the acting is pretty horrible. yet at the same time the show managed to be entertaining enough for me to watch all 7 episodes in one go, and there are some witty parts.

    i felt better about the fact that jesse and evan’s relationship wasn’t technically illegal, but it’s still not healthy or equitable for a 16/17 year old high school student to be in a relationship with a grown adult. i say this as someone who used to go out with 25 year olds when i was 16. in hindsight, i now understand that there was obviously something wrong with the people who i dated. as someone around who is an adult now, even if it was legal ny, i wouldn’t dream of dating a 16 year old because it’s essentially dysfunctional and the mark of an immature adult. thankfully this is fictional, and i also think the actresses who play jesse and evan have an interesting chemistry. i like jesse and evan as a couple.

    Wow. I can’t believe I watched the whole first episode – I just kept waiting for it to redeem itself.

    Was there not ONE person of color in there? I know it’s the south and all, but… oh wait, I think there was a black man in the background at the bar. And for the deep south, it’s a little odd that not even one person has a southern accent. Score: 1/5. Horrible acting, implausible scenarios, bad dialogue, and rather uninteresting. The 1 is out of duty to support the community. Sorry.
