  • The girls are struggling with the shoot of Lez girls, Kit gets her revenge, Alice gets in deeper, and Adele becomes spooky.

    4.5
    Since the show came back on the air for the 5th season I was very enthousiastic about all the new episodes. Unfortunately this one was not a one to remember. Nothing happens, the scenes at the night where the girls wrestle are dragging on and on. Bette and Tina behave like adolescents, Tasha's story doesn't go anywhere. Kelly Mc Gillis doesn't add any spice to the plot. And Jenny, please, do something about her character. The only intrigue came from Adele's odd and spooky behavior. I hope the next episode brings the energy that we saw in the previous ones.moreless
  • Ho, hum... Turkish Oil wrestling at the Shebar - Aidelle being manipulative and sneaky - Tibette; no resolution yet - Nicki and Jenny (yawn) .....

    8.0
    The best part of this episode was when the Shebar rats got busted, which means they'll be closed down for a bit, and we know Kit's opening the Planet very soon, since she only needs one inspection more. Go Kit!



    Tina and Bette almost had another tryst. I'm not liking how this is dragging out. Bette needs to decide if she wants Tina or if she wants Jodi. As much I don't care for the Bette/Jodi pairing, Jodi's thinking everything is just hunky dory, while Bette is cheating on her. As hot as Bette is, I wouldn't want her as my woman - cheating seems to be on par for her. I also did not care for the Bette / Jodi sex scene. Bette continually smacking Jodi's hands away - made it seem very desperate; I'm surprised Jodi didn't pick up on that.



    Aidelle - not sure what her T is, but I hope someone figures her out soon. This manipulating behind the scenes is just not nice. The scene with her in Jenny's chair, saying "cut" very softly; I can't imagine she's thinking to replace Jenny as director. Even if it should pass that Jenny is thrown out, they're not going to put an assistant in her place.



    I am glad to see that we still get to see Tasha's world; perhaps she and Alice will get back together? They were good together, I think. I do not like that Alice thinks it was alright to out someone from Jenny's film, even if it was done without naming anyone. You know the "Look" isn't going to be satisfied with just that - they're going to want more and more....



    And the Molly thing? With Shane? Best part was when Shane told Molly "don't flatter yourself." Shane can pretty much get whoever she wants - why would she bother chasing someone straight?



    Having written this all out, I guess more happened that I originally thought. It just seemed like such a tame episode. Hope next week's is more exciting.moreless
  • SheBar hosts a lesbian Turkish oil wrestling tournament.

    10
    Let me just start out by saying that I really enjoyed this episode. In my opinion, it was a pretty fun episode to watch while having just the right amount of drama in the episode. My favorite thing about this episode was definitely the lesbian Turkish oil wrestling tournament, especially when Molly goes into the ring. Shane's story line was definitely my favorite story line for this episode, and I definitely think that she has great chemistry with Molly. I also really enjoyed Jenny as a whole in this episode and the depth that they're showing with Jenny as far as her relationship with Nikki goes. This episode was the first episode for this season that I actually liked Alice, even though I still don't agree with her behavior. All in all, I really enjoyed all of the story lines in this episode. This really was a great episode, and I can't wait to see the next episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: At the movie set, Bette and Tina are lying on the bed in "Bev" and "Nina"'s room. The voice over the comm system interrupts them, and they quickly get up. Bette is sitting on the side of the bed and you can see her purse behind her in the middle of the bed. When the camera first shows the person standing at the door, you can't see the purse as it is cut from view. The view changes to Tina and then back to the door again. Now the purse is right behind Bette next to where she is sitting. In the next shot, the purse is again in the middle of the bed.

    • Deleted Scene: Jenny plays mediator to settle a cast dispute
      This scene takes place after the event of the opening teaser. Begoña and Niki are in Jenny's trailer. Jenny's telling Begoña to cut Niki some slack because she's "young and unexperienced". Even though Begoña's more experienced and studied, she should learn something from Niki's "rawness". Niki goes on a rant that the reason why she became in unprepared for the day's shooting was that she attended a fund raiser the previous night because "the Earth is in serious trouble". Begoña storms out of the trailer stating that Niki's "stupidity is staggering". Niki then pleads to Jenny: "Are you gonna let her talk to me like this?"

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Shane: Did you have fun?
      Molly: I did.
      Shane: Yeah? I feel like shit. I'm gonna go home and clean up, do you want to come over and borrow something to wear?
      Molly: I'm totally straight. But you can keep dreaming.
      Shane: (laughs) Hmm. Come here... (Molly leans closer to her) Don't flatter yourself, okay?

    • Shane: (watching Jenny and Niki wrestle) You don't think that this is degrading?
      Molly: You don't see my mother in there, do you?

    • Shane: If you want to stick around a little bit longer, and then I can take you out later.
      Molly (sarcastic): Sure.
      Shane: What?
      Molly: My mother told me all about your little game, you're like the Fonz or something of the lesbians.
      Shane (laughs): Oh, come on. The Fonz. Bullshit.
      Molly: Yeah... Happy Days.
      Shane: I know the Fonz, I know the Happy Days but, uh... Alright, I'll give it to you, you're sassy. No one's called me that before.
      Molly: I'm not sassy. I'm bored, but not bored enough to sleep with you.

    • Bette: (talking about Niki) Is Jenny still...?
      Tina: Oh, yeah. They fuck in her trailer every day during lunch. The whole crew knows, and Adele stands outside to guard. It's insane.

    • Jenny: Do you think that we should stop fucking over lunch?
      Niki: No.
      Jenny: Do you think that they might notice?
      Niki: Mm-mm. I don't care if they notice.
      Jenny: Why?
      Niki: Because...
      Jenny: What? ... What? ... What?
      Niki: I love you.

    • Jenny: (after she and Niki have sex, her pager goes off because the directors are looking for her) Oh, god, it's like when you're fucking and your mom calls!

    • Alice: (about the security guard) Tina, could you please tell the Incredible Hulk to let me in?

    • Shane: You looked like you were having a wonderful time at your mom's party.
      Molly: I didn't see you there.
      Shane: Yeah, I-- I didn't think that you would. I noticed that you were too busy checking out those 50-year-olds in their black bras... diving into your mother's swimming pool.
      Molly: Yeah, yeah. Don't remind me of my mother's total degradation, please.

    • Tina: (showing Bette around the set) Check it out.
      Bette: Oh, my God. This is supposed to be our bedroom?
      Tina: No... It's Bev and Nina's bedroom. (laughs)
      Bette: (smiles) It looks like the children's department at... God knows where...
      Tina: Oh, well, it's Jenny's design choices, there's nothing I could do about it. I had to let her have her way.
      Bette: (touches the bed) At least it's not a water bed.
      Tina: Ah, I had to fight her on that one.
