I expect to finish the 608 recap some time in the next eon. Then we can start making this website happen for real, I can get back to a lot of you guys who’ve contacted me about it … and I can start rebuilding some of my brain cells. After the mini-podcast, live-tweeting as eight different people, starting the recap and filming Lezberado today … zomg. You know how much I loved Jenny, but I’m so ready to kill just about anyone who crosses my path. Tinkerbell is on my radar. Natalie is at my desk LOL’ing.
In the meantime, feast on a plethora of other people who’ve already weighed in on the suckage:
“The series finale of The L Word set lesbianism and the art of storytelling back about fifty years. It couldn’t have dribbled to a more feeble, unfulfilling letdown–a murder mystery in which mystery isn’t resolved (or even staged) and everything the show was building towards is piddled away in the late innings.”
“Maybe the ladies should’ve said goodbye a little sooner.”
“Lame, lacking and legacy-tarnishing.”
“After we watched our beloved characters lie, cheat and steal year after year, one glimmer of hope, one glimmer of happiness would have been nice. Instead, Ilene Chaiken gave the lesbian community murder, ambiguity and despair.”
“ L Word devotees deserved better for their dedication to a complex, groundbreaking and sometimes — let’s be honest — disappointing series.”
“And now we find out after all what “The L Word” meant. Not Lesbian, nor Love, nor life. It’s Letdown.”
“The hallmark of The L Word over its six seasons has been missed opportunities and inconsistent storytelling. All of that was punctuated by the finale, which – to use a technical term – blew.”
