  1. That was so funny!!! Was it just my imagination or was Sarah Shahi’s name left out of the credits? Ilene is probably bitter that she never returned to the L word again!

  2. Hilarious! (:

    Without you guys I would have no enjoyment watching this show.
    I felt like I was on acid watching it.
    Seriously WTF?!?
    I almost died when Nikki came out of the bushes.
    It’s so bad… -_-

  3. Can somebody please find that mountain lion and introduce it already to IFC? Gawd, it’s like she fed us with all of these story lines and we ended up having this massive diarrhea. Blech!
