Hello, Helena! This week on “The L Word” we meet two new main characters — Helena, who we love and Mark, who we hate. Special guest Drew Gregory, who ranks “Lynch Pin” as her second-favorite-episode of all time, joins us for this journey. Will Shane & Jenny find a roommate who will keep their clothes on and stop talking about Jesus? Was New York prepared for how good Jennifer Beals looks when she walks down the street and will Helena support her little arts project? Will the ol switcharoo work to divert Carmen’s attention from Shane to Jenny? What does Dana WANT from Alice WHAT DOES SHE WANT and where did those palm trees come from? Why are they making us endure T.O.E??!!! All that and more on this week’s ep of To L and Back!
PLEASE TAKE THIS SURVEY FOR US SO WE CAN GET ADVERTISERS. It’s a super-quick survey from Libsyn and the categories you have to put yourself in are not the ones we would’ve picked if we’d designed the survey I’ll tell you what!!! But it’ll only take like one minute.
Also I learned today that my post for Episode 202, including a link to the very important Madonna / Sandra Bernhard video, did not get published on August 6th as it should have been! (I’m currently on a break from Autostraddle and thus wasn’t aware of this until now.) The post is now up, although I imagine you probably found the video on your own. But if you haven’t like, wow, go do that favor for yourself.

Hey Riese! I think the song you’re talking about in the scene where Bette seduces the random girl is “Good Times” by Joystick. I downloaded the song as soon as I heard it on the episode, too.
Ugh, I hate Mark. I hate Mark more than Tonya and she killed Mr Piddles
Listening to L and Back, is legit one of the favourite parts of my week, thanks again to you all.
drew is freaking amazing (duh) and I can’t wait to hear more from her in future eps!
