I will be downloading it tomorrow - I know so bad! We don't have cable so I can't watch it. I'm really excited to see it though. I watched the last episode yesterday just to make sure I remembered everything! Hope it's a good one! =)

I wanted Jenny dead already - what a beeotch. If the whole season is gonna revolve around her turmoil, I may not be watching :~(

Oh, what am I saying - there are so few lesbians on TV, I'm sure I'll watch every week!

We are still watching last season's programs from  Netflix.  I know lame, but I just don't want to fork over so much money to our cable company.  So I won't be reading the tread.  I don't want any spoilers.  LOL

Sarah, I don't mean to laugh, but it is very funny.  I remember having the kids run around without diapers to potty train them.  LOL

Rose I thought it was hilarious - DH was the one that didn't think so =) I was at work and I asked hubby if it was just a little or a lot. He said that he picked up the laptop and it was dripping out of the corner. I was in tears I was laughing so hard. Although I guess he got pretty upset and Jeramyah knew he should have went on the potty; DH said he went and hid behind the couch for a while. =( I told DH that'll teach him to not keep a better eye on him lol.

Well I finally watched it. All I can say is blah. It's not what I thought it would be. I'm looking forward to next weeks.

What about Max?!?!? I should have seen that possibility, though, with all the news coverage of the "pregnant man" this past year...

I saw Shane/Jenny happening a long time ago, but I hate to see Molly get hurt. I identify with that girl a lot. Jenny was a pot calling the kettle black when she said Shane left destruction everywhere she went. I can't stand her, and I never liked her.

i HATEEEEEEEEE Jenny and i love Shane so the thought of them together makes me mad.  I also REALLY liked Molly.  I think she has been the character that I have most identified with.

I thought Shane and Jenny would have happened a long time ago when she wasn't such a bitch. I didn't care for the idea then but I HATE it now. I ditto Jessie with the love Shane hate Jenny thought.

What do you all think will happen with Max? You think he'll give the baby up for adoption? Maybe to T and B?

Still grossed out by Shane & Jenny after watching this weeks episode.  I LOVE that Bette just kept laughing about it - it really does seem like a joke.

This season is very interesting. While I enjoy it I wish the final season could not be such a huge chaotic mess. While I understand the Max storyline coming about Thomas Beatty it's causing a HUGE outrage in the trans community and is making the show lose a lot of viewers. With only one trans character in the show I think they could have done a lot better things with him rather than just play on one situation that is very rare.

I think if they had done Max's storyline with more compassion and better it may not have caused so much outrage.  I'm not trans and I was pissed.  I just feel like they don't give this character the depth it deserves.  Imagine being in his situation...how horrible and confusing it must be and they just sort of blow it off and have Jenny say humiliating and degrading things to him.  Uhg. 

As for the rest of this season so far, I think they are really pushing the envelope.  Shane and Jenny??? come on.. no way in a million years does this make sense to me.  And Bette being forced to quit her job, I'm a little hazy on this one too.  There are a lot of things I'm struggling with this season...why do they need to have these big crazy dramas to give reasons to hate Jenny enough to kill her?  There was plenty of reason for it since season 1.

I just started watching this show last season and have been hooked ever since. I think I'll like it even more when I can go back and start from season one. But yeah, this season is caa-razy so far!

Only one more episode!!!!!! I feel like they are never going to be able to cram EVERYTHING that needs to happen into 2 hours. SIGH.

I am looking forward to Alice's show though, and hope it continues after the initial episodes.

 

I can't wait for Jenny to be gone, though I'm sad it didn't happen for good earlier this season :)

Yes, Caroline, they could have killed Jenny way earlier in the season for my money ;~)

Am I alone in feeling that the reason for Tina's new job is to move Bette & Tina to NY and break up the pack so as to keep down the outcry  for another season?

What is this about Alice and a new show?

I have been so disappointed this season.  I mean, how is next week the last one?  How are they going to tie EVERYTHING together?  The Shane/Jenny thing is ridiculous, the Max storyline has been handled very poorly, and they want to just end everything with one more hour-long episode? 

The rumor I heard was that Alice was going to be charged with Jenny's murder?  And that's going to be the spinoff for a new show?  What did anyone else hear?

Yeah, the new show is a prison-drama. Supposedly Alice is falsly accused of Jenny's murder. It also stars Famke Jensen and the woman that played Jackie on "Roseanne." We'll see how it goes.

Next week's episode of L Word is 2 hours which is good since they need to tie up SO MUCH, but it won't be long enough.

I think the first hour is a recap of everything though :(  I'm pretty sure the new episode is only one hour

I agree - I can't believe it's already over. I too was disappointed with this season. I think they need to do one more season to apalogize for this one lol!

Well, what did everyone think?  I was kind of disappointed with the ending. So many possibilities. I've been reading thee forum over at Showtime and it's a lot of mixed reactions...
