Sunday Revelation

Wendy and I were snuggled on the couch, fire roaring, TV tuned to Showtime awaiting an episode of The L-Word .

Shocking I know. Lesbians enjoying watching a television show about lesbians. How bizarre. But not really. Even if those lesbians are not exactly like us, there is some commonality (and it's not bad hair!).

Wendy asked me whether I think Jennifer Beals makes a convincing lesbian. I paused briefly to reflect and said "Yes, I think she does." Wendy nodded her agreement.

Then came one of the final scenes of the episode. Bette in NYC picks up a stranger in a bar and takes her back to her hotel room to... uh... get to know her better.

It was during the scene in the hotel room I definitively decided yes, Jennifer Beals plays a very convincing lesbian.

Yeeowza.

For what it's worth, I also must admit something else I said. I also said "There is no way in hell I could ever do what she has just done."

But just what did I mean by that?
Wendy knew.
And that's all that matters.

hmm, need to catch up...(we watch OnDemand so we are always a day or two behind)
There is something about that Jennifer Beals tho... she just... doesn't do it for me.
altho - you used the word 'Yeeowza', so my curiosity is surely peaked.

I agree with on Jennifer Beals. She is very convincing in the role. The episode on Sunday was a bit weak compared to #3 so I'm looking forward to this Sunday night. Of course...I'll be at my moms house and there is no Showtime. I can only hope the VCR does not fail. I can't wait to see what goes on between Alice and Dana.

I do think that Jennifer Beals plays a convincing lesbian, I think most of them do and I think Shane is hot even though she wears an awful lot more make up than I've witnessed any hot butches wearing in my circles. I've never had a one night stand, I don't know many lesbians that have all these one night stands like Shane and now Bette is having, but it sure is hot anyway and whenever I've been single I've always wished I could be more like Shane and Bette and have more one night stands with no strings. My sexcapades always end in massive amounts of strings and long-term relationships. Which has not been a bad thing so far :)

Bette and Tina broke up?!?

We only get the DVD's so I will have to wait a year or two to see for myself how convincing she is.

I hate to make this confession, but we've still never seen a single episode.
