    I've seen some of their scenes on YouTube and I don't know how I feel. On paper the plot fels a tad contrived but there's some decent chemistry between Joely Richardson and Portia De Rossi to make it believable enough.

    Olivia seems okay enough and if she isn't the antichrist from hell, I could get behind shipping her and Julia but I stil think that Liz should be the one dating a hottie like Olivia.

    I must admit I was surprised by how much I like Olivia and Julia together but I do get the sense that she's disposable, especially because Portia De Rossi is only signed on for so many episodes. It doesn't mean she won't sign on for more but....

    Disposable! You can see that in the coming clips not to mention, if you have been with the series from day one you know that only lasting relationship is McNamara/Troy.

    I have but I think at this point in the show some relationships should be lasting ones. Julia doesn't work with Sean or Christian no matter how big her ties to both men are and Sean and Christian aren't gonna go gay for one another anytime soon.

    It's kinda now the case of finding suitable but interesting characters for Sean, Christian, Julia and Liz. Ones that last too I might add.

    I think the entire series is about how two men can love each other WITHOUT people thinking they are gay a fact that has been lost in current era.

    Shaun's and Christian relationship has gone WAY beyond the sexual love issue (that was explored in the last few seasons). Now the series is showing us how the bond between the two main characters strains and flexes under the weight of the outlandish situations they find themselves in.

    I wonder if Christian will eventually do Ollie it would be DELICIOUS if he could turn her and really give him the 1up on Julia he has always enjoyed. It will drive her mad and put her in place at the same time.

    OH, and it would give Christian the thing that Julia took away from him ..... his personal pride.

    I hope not. It's nice to see women on this show who don't bang Christian.

    I definitely agree.. her overly-defensive behavior about her rotten child is starting to get on my nerves

    In the end, I don't think that Olivia turning a blind eye to Eden's badness is going to be compatible with her and Julia staying together. Sooner or later, Julia will fully realize how heinous Eden is acting and expect Olivia to do so as well. I get the feeling that issue will be the major rift between them....

    Aside from the fact that I think Liz described Julia's situation down to a T, I think Eden is going to doom their relatioship to failure.

    Once Jules find out what the demon seed is doing with her baby and Olivia defends Eden, it's over.

    I'm trying to imagine what Olivia would say in Eden's defense.

    Olivia: Um ... um ... well ... maybe she is a little fat!
    Julia: * glares at her until Olivia packs up and leaves *

    Ollie is way hotter than Eden...probably explains why the git resents her mother so much!

    I see her a disposable.

    On a completely different note: Liz should get someone this season!

    Besides Eden is doomed/destined for Sean.

    I like Olivia but defending that bitca of a daughter makes her stupid.

    I love her, she's starting to be the only character of the season I like (Besides Liz, ofcourse).

    I like Olivia but the relationship between her and Julia seems lame. They went a bit more in-depth with it during the scene when both women got carjacked/attacked, but that was about it so far. I'm kind of disappointed with the writers for exploring this relationship in the way they have been (instead of portraying something more realistic), but I guess the situation COULD happen, so whatever. I guess I just dislike Christian's annoying comments about the relationship, but he's always been that way and likes Julia, so most of his behaviour can be dismissed by the factor of jealousy.

    That would be the dumbest thing ever, and the writers would be even more stupid to do this. I don't care if Olivia sleeps with Christian (although...someone beautiful should resist him at some point on this show), but you can't just "turn" someone. And what do you mean by, "put her in place"? Seems somewhat sexist to me. I could be wrong about what you meant, but I do know that intelligent writers - especially a show that has a creator who is gay - would not just have a lesbian character sleep with Christian and then "turn" straight or change entirely as a person/character. I would actually lose respect for the writers if they did this, especially because Olivia seems solid in her own beliefs. Most things don't bother me, but for some reason this storyline rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it's because this season hasn't been that good yet, and Julia's interest in Olivia seems fake to me.
