“To L and Back” L Word Podcast Episode 114: Limb From Limb

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S THE FINALE OF SEASON ONE OF “TO L AND BACK”?? I cannot. Mr. Piddles, unfortunately, is no longer with us and will not be able to view the episode, and also Tonya is kinda gonna steal the scene at his funeral! Speaking of scenes, this week we’ll finally make it to Provocations, the greatest art show to ever art, and everybody will have a terrible time. Jenny dates Gene and Robin, Alice has confusing feelings about Dana’s upcoming wedding, and so much more will happen this week on the very last episode of Season One!

  1. Yay! I just watched The L Word for the first time this past spring and boy, was it a wild ride. I immediately started to miss it and then the podcast came into my life and I could relive all the terrible glory once again! Thanks for making it friends 😊

    Are you going to take a break between seasons or is this train just going to keep rolling right on through season 2?

    • Oops now I’m listening to it and the tiny intro is explaining things. Listen before asking! Lesson learned

  2. I have waited all season to say #JUSTICE4MRPIDDLES, but it was still really hard to watch his demise and funeral!
    The podcast has been amazing so far, and while I will definitely miss Kristin, I’m excited for the season 2 lineup and the general lesbian shenanigans to come.

  3. And here I was thinking that I was the only one deeply affected by Closer and The Blowers Daughter

  4. I’m so excited for Carly as the new co-host! Ever since I saw Misdirection I’ve been needing more Carly Content in my life.

  5. Riese’s “Homosexuality is a sin, I’m straight now” is a big Watching The L Word Mood

  6. This was a truly illuminating season, I learned new details every episode.

    #You guys have to get to the bottom of #Karina Lombard’s beef with #Jennifer Beals! #PhoneMachineQueen #HelloJenniferItsMeKarina #JusticeForPiddles

  7. I’m paraphrasing but I loved this part of the podcast;

    “Much like any lesbian’s life which is sex and crying, sex and crying. Then an art gallery that no one wants to go to.”

    hahahahahhaha im dead
