i'm dying to talk about it. jenny needs to be taken down and i can't stand watching tina kiss her ass when she can't stand her. welcome to showbiz is right. shane is sexier than ever but why is she so accepting of jenny's narcissism? it seems bette and jody got into the same circle upon seeing each other in the opener. i'm really looking forward to see how this develops. jane lynch is amazing as always. i also really love the alice/tasha thing...i dig tasha.

I just wish Jenny had died at sea. She is such a B**** especially to Tina. But overall I think this season is going to be good. Im so excited.

marie said...

In general I liked it. Obviously they are trying to make Jenny seem like she is so full of herself so eventually she can crash and initially have almost no one to turn to. I was also wondering if there are male directors now or something. I thought the love scene in the kitchen between Bette and Jodi seemed more like a guy directed that because of how the positioning kept looking forced toward the camera instead of a natural flow. I also wish Papi was still there. I was in mad, mad lust over her!!!

Jenny gives a lot of dynamic. She's a bitch but a great actress. She is being just horrible already this season but I wouldn't want her not in it. She give me something to be angry about! I love it. I actually got angry with Shane for cheating. I mean, i know it's her and all but all i could think was Damnit shane! Shape up! But it's cool. I like the antics. Who do u think started that Fire!?!?!?!? Does anyone think that Carmen might come back this season? Since Shane and wifey are obviously having a rough patch... Also, I really really like Jodi and Bette. I think they're a cute little couple but i can't get over bette and tina. Really i cant. It's sick, it's obsessive, it's old but i just want them to get back together.
And i cried a little when Tasha came back and saw Alice. Adorable! Helena is fantastic. Episode one left me with all sorts of unanswered questions. I might go crazy until next sunday. Is anyone else with me?? PS: Where is Poppy?
That's about all i have to say about episode one..

natalie said...

I thought it was a great way to start off the season, and loved the scene with the girls visiting Helena. I wanted to jump into my screen and strangle jenny though... She drives me crazy!!!! Oh and the scene with bette blindfolded..damn, that should have been longer!! :)

Natasha said...

Okay first off let me say that I THINK JENNY IS A BITCH! Not too sure why shes still around and Dana is not but whatev. Now to the rest of the show. I think the premier was good but not as shocking or life altering as I had hoped. I'm excited to see where the writers will take Bette and Tina. I love that Paige was so pissed that Shane didn't love her that she decided to burn Raw down....lol "good work Paige". Just one last question though......WHERE THE F IS PAPI???????????????????????????

I went to a showing at The Rickashaw Stop in San Francisco. Lesbians on top of lesbians! We were literally sitting on another's laps (not that anyone minded). The greatest part was the snears everytime Jenny came on screen (she's really hated!) and the cheers at the end when Tasha showed up at Alice's. I can't wait to see what this season has in store.

Niki said...

LOVED it, can't wait to see what becomes of Helena and omgg I just want to stab Jenny. Grrr.

Lindsey M. said...

Wallace Shawn on the L Word. INCONCEIVABLE! (grin)"...so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you..." "...No more rhymes now. I mean it!" "Anybody want a peanut?" (laughing) Good stuff! Too bad Jenny's a pile of wacko right now.

i freak'in LOVED IT! i was rather pleased with the opener. Jenny is a little BIATCH! She is back in full force and I can't wait to see one of the girls bring her ass down. lol. hopefully Bette or Tina. I'm so digg'in Tasha and Alice. I love that hot little soldier girl.

Poor Helena.

I'm beyond exstatic to see that my girl Shane is BACK! I can't wait to see all the new hot asses she taps. haha. I wasn't really fond of Paige to begin with and that whole relationship just seemed off to me. Now, who do you think burned down her biz? was it Paige, Paige's son or possibly even Carmen? Hmmmmm. (i wish Carmen would come back).

Overall, great show. Looks like the next episode is going to be smashing as well.

Heidi said...

I wanted to inflict pain upon Jenny. But thank GOD for Tasha and Shane! HOTTTTTT!!!!!!! I am so XCITED about this season I know it is going to be great!

AmazonK said...

first off Jenny needs to die, she needed to die before and now she needs to die even more. I love Bette and Jodie together and i kinda don't want Bette and Tina to get back together, it's too much been there done that. and i am so glad that Tasha didn't go, I love her and Alice together they are so cute. i'm really excited for more, i want to see what other suprises they have in store for us

Steph said...

I was at the NYC premiere....it was awesome! Bitch was there along with Dani from Tila Tequila, as well as NYC's finest (and hottest) lesbians!! The opener was great, and I agree with all the other comments! Frankly, I'm just glad it's back on...was in desperate need of seeing hot lady love on lots of big screens in a rockin club!!

Helen! said...

Hey!
I thought the season opener was brilliant! I noticed that Tina is getting hotter for each season. I agree with Tess, Jenny should be taken down! It's amazing to see Alice and Tasha together.
But HEY, where the fuck did Papi go?!

AndroBard1364 said...

Just when I started to like Jenny, she starts to go crazy! And is it just me, or is it SO obvious that Tina and Bette want each other?! I mean really! Sure that blindfolded scene between Bette/Jodi was hot, but I want my TiBette back! Loved to see Alice and Tasha together, though their scenes together make me miss Dana... :( Maybe there will be more flashbacks of her in later episodes. Shane and Helena were looking hot as usual!

Lex said...

loved the scene where shane, alice, and tina visit helena and try to give her advice on how to behave in prison. and the look that helena gives alice when she asks where the money is...priceless.

alice rocks...especially when glued to her tv, watching cnn coverage of the war...even better when she describes trying to get in touch with peggy peabody...better still when tasha returns.

i'm tired of jodi. i want her to leave. not that i want to see bette and tina together, but i just don't want to see bette and jodi together. i don't care if jodi takes a bus or a boat i just want her to take a hike ASAP. better yet, she can put a saddle on jenny and ride her off into the sunset. actually, that would kill two birds with one stone.

jenny should have been eaten by sharks at the end of S4. i feel sorry for sounder 2.

Nikki said...

Hey girlies!!!

I watched the premier with all the girls and we are in agreement that Shane is back to the way she should be. So excited to see what else she can get herself into... And Jenny, poor Jenny... I just love to hate her... Keep her around... she amuses me.

And how f-in hot was the end scene with Tasha and Alice... Im still trying to cool myself off...

CathyinOhio said...

Where's Papi, and why didn't Jenny get eaten by sharks? Damn!
I see Jenny going off the deep end and ending up in a loony bin and that might be fun to watch! I actually thought she was losing it last season.
As for Jodi and Bette I know that won't last... they are both too controlling and besides Bette still has the hots for Tina. Do I see an affair happening? Hell yes!
I cried when Tasha showed up at Alices door! They are great together, but it made me think about Dana and how much Alice loved her! Wow, whoda thunk it? Paige turned pyro freak! I can't wait for the next episode!

Kim said...

For the love of god- NEW THEME PLEASE! When on EARTH are they going to get rid of that nasty betty song?

Good warm up to the season, hoping the rest will be as good. I think there were some good issues being broached with Max and the trans-people on the fringes.

Jodi has too much to teach Bette for her to leave just yet- it's not going to be until Jodi breaks her that Bette will be able to take her back, as much as they want each other.

Really liking the hairstyles!

My girlfriend and I live in Australia and we got Episode 1 downloaded from the net!! We have every other season on DVD and absolutely love The L Word. We are not a fan of Jenny at all. Hopefully they kill her off at the end of this season or some drastic. As with alot of people we are wanting Bette and Tina back together, although Jodi is good for Bette, so we are torn. We can't wait to download the next episode. This season so far seems better than the last to seasons put together!!

Heidi said...

I thought the first episode was great. I wasn't really that upset that Shane cheated on Paige, although I did gasp when Paige opened the door. Paige just wasn't really that good for her. I miss Carmen :(. They were cute together. I almost cried when Tasha came back for Alice, but I'm really curious as to how she got to come back. Alice is looking gooood this season! By far one of the hottest characters. Can't say I like Bette's hair, but she'll always be a hottie. I can't decide if I want Tina and Bette together again. They both screwed each other over, but Tina went with a guy! A guy!! I hope Angus doesn't come back. The scene with the girls visiting Helena was great. I laughed out loud when Alice said "don't drop the soap." All in all a great episode, and I can only imagine how intense the rest of the season will get, especially given how great it was last season. We will see!

Angie said...

The season premiere of the L word season 5 was great.

Jenny has a lot of haters right now as to be predicted but I find her so damn amusing. She is not my favorite character but she does add drama and sometimes that is a good thing.

Tina IS getting hotter and I feel that there should be a cat fight scene between she and Jenny. Maybe topless? ooooh or maybe Marina can come back and talk some sense into Jenny...then kiss her?

Bette is hot as ever. While I do like Jodi and think they're great together, I would still like her and Tina to reconcile. Tina + Better = OTP.

Tash and Alice are great and they seem to be the most likeable couple at the moment. I can really feel Alice's emotions about Tash being away in Iraq. That is some great acting for you.

Phylis and Joyce are a riot. Nuff said.

And Shane...I'm a little over Shane. Not to offend any fans of her. It's just so..done before. Okay we get it, she can't be tied down. But then what? I do like her though and it's cool that she's the neutral one out of the crowd.

Helena? She's just hot. I don't care what she does. I'm just waiting for the heart to heart that she and her cell mate are gonna have. XD They should also plan Kathryn's death together.

yeah i'm done.

John-ie Cake said...

If I wasent mistaken...Everyone in the 4th season was an asshole to Jenny, just because she put them in her book which was fiction. Tina was a bitch, and she deserved what she received. I love Jenny, end of story. Now as for the first episode, I thought it was a bit boring, nothing that great happened, it was some what of a cliff hanger.

Anonymous said...

Tasha.......... be still my beating heart!!!!

and how amazingly hot is Alice this season?!!!!!!!! I'm not into real girly girls, but Alice is a hot momma this year!

I've ALWAYS been a shane girl. still am........ but this year, Tasha........ hot damn!!!!!!!!

Krys said...

I don't like Tina. She doesn't know what she wants. She was a bitch to Jenny first and is just getting what she deserves. Though I do think that they are building up jenny to break her down in some way. Jenny has always been one of my favorite characters because there is so much to her. I'm happy shane cheated. I feel like the old feel is comming back. But I hope the rest of the season picks up because I'm not feelin it yet. I have many questions and some showtimes shows have been known to just drop characters or change story lines with no explination thinking that the viewers won't notice or something.

Rhi said...

This really isn't fair! Us Brits have to wait god knows how long for season 5 to start. Season 4 only finished a few weeks back :( Think i'm gonna have to resort to getting my Dad and Step mumt o post us the boxset from the states again :)

Valerie said...

i LOVE the fact that shane is back to her OLD FANTASTIC SELF!!!! I LOVE watching her take all the girls down. AND Jenny needs to die in a tragic accident....

nat said...

what's the deal with everyone hating jenny? tina is getting what she deserves, considering she's been an ass for at least 2 seasons. even bette has been an ass and everyone still loves her. i could really care less about bette and tina getting back together,they should both move on. i like jodi, but i have no idea how bette was being controling by buying her a table cloth...a little strange. i think jodi is the control freak. i'm so happy amazon woman is out (paige). if carmens not good enough for shane nether is T-X.
