"The L Word" Episodes 13 and 14

The L Word (2004) Episodes 13 and 14. This concludes my coverage of season one. They were both disappointing from a nudity standpoint, with a single breast from Mia Kirshner in 13 and breasts from Laurel Holloman is 14. It is my understanding that it has been picked up for next season, so there will be another year. I modestly suggest, in the interests of truth in advertising, that they change the name to "Gays of Our Lives." Here is the current state of the plot.

Holloman has caught Jennifer Beals cheating with the carpenter. Mia Kirshner is now dating both a man and a woman, and entertaining them in the small studio she is still renting from her ex husband. The husband is upset that she is back on men. Katherine Moennig fell for a married woman, and in the process, got her heart broken and lost the chance to open her own studio. Karina Lombard has dumped her lesbian lover and wants Kirshner back.

How much more soap-like can this series get? With another 14 episodes next year, I am confident they will manage it. There is an entire DVD of special features in this set, and I found nothing of value in it. It is sort of a fanzine, and I am decidedly not a fan of the series. Given the popularity and longevity of daytime soaps, this will probably be around for quite some time, but I don't look forward to another episode. It would be different if there was a single character the show made me care about, but I am still waiting to find one I like or can relate to. This is a C. There is nothing wrong with it technically, so it all boils down to whether or not you find lesbian soaps entertaining.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea (1976) - part 1

    Hello Scoopy !
     
    In 1976 the movie "The sailor who fell from grace with the sea" caused some controversy because of the love scenes between Sarah Miles and Kris Kristofferson. These clips from German TV however seem quite tame, even by standards of 28 years ago. I wonder if there is another version of this film which contains the scenes that can be seen in the much steamier Playboy pictorial from the same year. Or were these just stills to promote the film and were those scenes never shot?
     
    The film itself is an adaptation of a Japanese novel but set in England in past times. Sarah Miles plays the role of a widow who falls in love with the captain of a ship (Kris Kristofferson), something her adolescent son doesn't condone. The pace is rather slow and it's difficult to connect with the characters. The animal cruelty doesn't go down with me very well either, as well as this son spying on his mother during her most intimate moments. He was a real sick puppy, if you ask me.

    Four today, four more tomorrow

     

    SCOOP'S NOTE: the Playboy pictorial was shot separately, voluntarily, including intimate moments never filmed for the movie. As you can imagine, Kris's willingness to do this did not go down well with his wife, Rita Coolidge, who assumed that Kris would not have done such a thing unless he was involved with Miles offscreen, or was really wasted, or both. Knowing Kris, the "wasted" was a given. The rest? I don't know if Kris ever fessed up to the true nature of his relationship with Ms. Miles, but I do remember him saying that he really screwed up a good thing when he lost Coolidge, who bid Sayonara to Kris about three years after the Miles incident.

    These kinds of shenanigans were business as usual for Kris, who was a classic Hollywood bad boy. He caused another scandal when he crawled into the hot tub naked to do a scene with Babs Streisand in "A Star is Born". Wouldn't you know it, but the co-producers of the movie were Babs and her husband, Jon Peters.

    Oh, that Kristofferson! I think he may have spent more years wacked-out than Dennis Hopper. It would be a good contest.

    SCOOP'S TIP: don't ever use this title to stump expert Charades players. They get it in about three seconds. They do "movie", then "9 words", then their whole team shouts out the answer in unison. Having said that, let me add that it should work fine to slow down the opposing team in a friendly family game.

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:

    This is an odd one. Same actress, Laurie Wallace, in four movies, thee of them in the adult genre. Ya see, Laurie is a sometimes Hafmag model, sometimes B movie babe and oft-times girl-doing-girl pornstar. So The Gimp and I combined forces. He capped some stuff and stuck them together; he capped some other stuff and I stuck them together; and some of these I did all by my lonesome. Anyway, here ya go.

    In all of these Laurie winds up getting all kissy faced with some other babe. It's just a matter of how seriously the other gal takes it. For my money, The Gimps caps of Duchess are the most explicit stuff Laurie has done... it brings a whole new meaning to the term, gynocam (particularly in the 2nd and 3rd collages).

    • Laurie Wallace in "Duchess" (1, 2, 3, 4)

    • Laurie Wallace in "Lost Angels: Nikita Denise" (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

    • Laurie Wallace in "Sinful Creations" (1, 2, 3)

    • Laurie Wallace in "Witchbabe" (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    CELEBRITY NATIVITY SCENE ATTACKED, CLOSED
    Paste Wax - At Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in London, a controversial Nativity Scene of celebrities, which featured Kylie Minogue as an angel and Tony Blair and George W. Bush as Wise Men, has been taken off display after it was damaged. It spurred outrage from the clergy and complaints from visitors. The museum wouldn't comment, but the Sun newspaper says an unidentified young man broke out of line, repeatedly punched the David and Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham "Mary and Joseph," and fled.

  • He'd been pulling for Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson.
  • The George W. Bush figure is now tracking him down.
  • Can they keep the Kylie Minogue angel? It's really nice having her hanging overhead like that.


    WAL-MART SUED OVER CD
    "F" Is For "Fortune" - Trevin and Melanie Skeens of Brownsville, Maryland, are suing Wal-Mart for selling a CD by Evanescence that contained an uncensored F-word. They say they let their daughter buy it for her 13th birthday and were shocked, and Wal-Mart must've known about it because they censored the word in the clip on their website. They are seeking damages of up to $74,500 for each of the thousands of Maryland residents who bought it.

  • Even though none of the other buyers gives an F...
  • Anyone who has to hear that CD, with or without the F-word, should be paid $74,500 in damages.
  • Their daughter was shocked by the words her parents screamed when they heard that.


    NEW CURE FOR COLDS: HOT SEX
    My Forehead Is Hot For You, Baby! - Pravda reports that researcher Manfred Schedlovski of Zurich, Switzerland, found that phagocytes, the cells that help rid the body of alien invaders such as disease microbes, increase significantly during intercourse and almost double after orgasm. So if you are trying to fight off a cold, a good way to do it is by having hot sex.

  • Of course, if you're contagious, you'll have to do it alone.
  • An erotic massage with hot chicken soup also helps.
  • Could you cure hypochondria by faking an orgasm?
