The L Word Season 3 Accomplished...

I finally completed The L Word Season 3 last night (28th June). Remember I mentioned how I was hesitant about watching Season 3 'cos it seemed like it was all dark and gloomy, and how I hated shows like that? Well, last Sunday, I finally plucked up enough courage, gathered enough impulse and started playing Episode 1.. on my Real Player. And guess what.. I didn't stop playing.. didn't stop watching.. until I was at Episode 8. And by then, it was 5am in the wee hours of the night. I felt like a total zombie on Monday, and basically dozed thru' work. I couldn't resist playing Episode 9 before I went to bed on Tuesday.. and finally, I finished the remaining episodes after dinner yesterday on Wednesday.

And, you know something? It wasn't so bad, really.. it wasn't as gloomy.. as ridiculous.. as how I had expected it to be. True, there were indeed bad stuff.. bad things happening, but still, it wasn't entirely that bad. There were always some bright sparks amidst the darkness.. and I caught 'em.

Stuck And Procrastinating..

I'm beginning to find this blog kinda tough to run. Not 'cos I have no more materials to put in here anymore, rather it's the opposite. There are tons of ideas and subject matter within the cranky walls of my head that I can put in here, but the problem is I don't have sufficient time to do this. Gathering and sorting out materials to get them fit for publishing here require extensive blocks of time and I don't have them, not at least till next weekend. Right now, I only have squirts of time.. time enough only for me to pen my rantings about my-not-having-enough-time.. entries like this one.

Anyway, initially when I decided to do this blog, the first character I wanted to cover was Dana Fairbanks (played by Erin Daniels) from The L Word. Mainly to commemorate her cruel recent departure from the series due to her succumbing to breast cancer in Season 3. But I decided to hold it for a while, 'cos the truth is, I haven't been able to bring myself to complete watching Season 3 yet. I have been procrastinating, 'cos I'm a sucker for happy storylines.. or at least happy endings.. and from what I've heard and read and seen.. Season 3 of The L Word is nothing remotely like it. And with Tina turning straight, Dana dying, Shane backing out of her wedding with Carmen.. I'm really not quite sure if I want to complete watching Season 3.

Strictly speaking, this particular episode about Ling and Ally probably does not qualify as a lesbian scene as neither of them is gay and this fact is reiterated more than enough times thru'out the whole episode. But I cannot resist covering this episode 'cos I did enjoy the chemistry between Ling and Ally. Ling is a favorite for me in this episode. Whilst her outspoken and domineering personality seemed bitchy and irritating in other episodes, her very same personality traits shine like gems in this one.

My favorite shots of Ling in this episode.
