A Drive-By Gaying ... Slow Jam...  
When last we left the ladies of Lip Service Cat was fucking up her life by fucking Frankie. Frankie was just fucked up. And Sam was too busy being too hot for this show and too good for the girl cheating on her with the fuck up. Lesbian drama. Series two of Lip Service premiered last week in the U.K. and let's just say, I hate everyone. Why am I watching this show? Oh, right, because I need to take my lesbian representation where I can get it. Below is the glorious episode in its entirety if you haven't yet seen it. Watch it fast before it disappears.

Lip Service



Look away if you don't want to be spoiled.

— My one word reaction to just about everything featured in this episode is WHY? WHY? For the love of god, WHY? Why is Cat still cheating on the world's most perfect girlfriend? She takes you on vacation. She treats you with respect. She doesn't want to fuck you in dark, dirty alleys. She looks like Heather Peace. She owns handcuffs. Why, for the love of Pete would you cheat on her, Cat?

— WHY? Frankie? Why? I think the more appropriate observation is how? How is someone so self-involved and fucked up have so much of a hold over someone who is generally level-headed and rational? I don't care about your shit, Frankie and if I keep on having to deal with your shit, I may have to stop watching.

— Oh, Tess. Dump your girlfriend. Please don't cheat on her with your new roomie.

— New roomie is hot and she can stay. Tess get on that.

— Oh wait, new roomie Lexi has the hots for Sam who is in love with Cat who is shagging Frankie who is living with Tess who is has the hots for Lexi. Did I get that right? What could possible go wrong here?

— Cat and Jay getting high. A favorite.

— No, seriously, new roomie is hot.


The Good Wife



If you didn't watch The Good Wife on Sunday than you missed the hottest lesbian love scene to date on network television (minute 4:12 of this clip). Yes, on CBS. You read this sentence right. The gauntlet has been thrown down other networks. Will you really let this stand? Will you let CBS (CBS FOR CHRIST SAKES) wear the crown of network who aired the best lesbian sex scene? Come on, Fox, step up.. I thought you were supposed to be the edgy network. What makes this scene so good is precisely what it didn't show and how much that didn't matter because it was still hot. TV and media in generally rarely depict satisfaction of female desire even in heterosexual sex so to see and hear a woman getting off on the touch of another woman is truly a milestone. Cheers to you, CBS. For more on the scene from Good Wife creator, click here, but for the best paragraph...
“It’s very funny to talk with Standards & Practices, who are all very nice people, and negotiate how much we could see of a thrusting hand and so on. Jill Flint and Archie Panjabi did such a wonderful job in the scene. We’ve always thought sexiness was better played on the face, but it was difficult to get around [what was happening below frame]. All we could do was plead the fact that you couldn’t see the scene if you framed it any differently. I think we compromised slightly — we would have gone out maybe another few inches — but I think we reached a nice compromise.”


Hollyoaks



Shut up, I love me all kinds of soaps and YES, I watch Hollyoaks. Don't judge. No judging. So far this year on Hollyoaks one gay couple, Texas and Jodie, has come and gone like a shooting star so there is no guarantee that this storyline, currently unfolding, will not have the same outcome, but I do like it so far. Tilly and Jen met at an art gallery show and hit it off. They had a date and kissing happened. It wasn't until later that Tilly realized Jen was the new student-teacher at college. Now, Tilly and Jen are doing that attraction dance where they know they can't be together (Jen would get the fired), have agreed to be friends, but they can't seem to stay away from each other. One of the reasons I like this storyline is that it isn't the same old "gay girl falls for straight girl and straight girl is confused" storyline which is the only storyline TV shows tend to make. In this one, Tilly and Jen are both out and gay and the obstacle to their happiness is something not based on sexuality. A gay storyline that doesn't involve straight girl angst and is not about getting pregnant.... how refreshing is that.

Re Lip Service: This.
Seriously. I just wanted to slap EVERYONE, except perhaps Ed. Cos Ed is awesome. Especially when Drugs Make Him Gay.

Why can't we just have a nice drama with occasional feelings? Like maybe Bomb Girls. I wish BBC2 would buy that.

That scene has me laughing. I kind of want Ed and Tess to get their own show. They can bring the new roomie.

I think Bomb Girls has ruined me for all other dramas. It is just so perfect. The right amount of emotion, lovely characters and I just love them all.

I don't watch Lip Service, is it to the UK what L Word was to the US? As in it gets viewers for being a lesbian show, but unfortunately is god awful and you hate everyone on the cast? If that's the case, I think I'll spare myself. I stopped watching L Word after season 2. I think I'll just rewatch Bomb Girls instead for that kind of stuff.

And in case you haven't seen it...and you must. Obama proves he is the coolest leader in the world. There is no second place.

He definitely is a president who has no problems appearing on shows to try and please the audience, which I like.

In other show news, not gay however, but it has dawn on me that Avatar the Legend of Korra has already premiered. Hey can you blame me for looking forward to that show especially after what the networks gave me last year? I also think the Avatar series is the only US series that I love that hasn't been brutally murdered yet.

BTW you never did tell me if you had any icons of Cassidy and Erica together. I'll also be picking up season 9 of Smallville this weekend, so should look forward to that.

Yes. I could never recommend this show to anyone. It is about on par with The L Word in terms of frustration and, honestly, I think I like the actors on the L Word a whole lot more. I don't even know why I watch this show... only that I do and I can't stop.

BTW you never did tell me if you had any icons of Cassidy and Erica together. I'll also be picking up season 9 of Smallville this weekend, so should look forward to that.

I don't have any Tess/Lois icons, but if you find a moment/screencap you want as an icon, I will make one for you.

Yes. I could never recommend this show to anyone.

*Charlie Brown and Stewie style* Argh. Why is it awful shows like that can go on for multiple seasons yet a show like Playboy Club dies quick, sudden deaths? And the irony is that the latter would've given viewers better gay representations, more likable characters and odds of sexier lesbian times.

I don't have any Tess/Lois icons, but if you find a moment/screencap you want as an icon, I will make one for you.

Thanks for the offer. I'll have to go through more seasons to see if there is a good scene with the two of them. I search online for offscreen pics. There's quite some good ones but unfortunately there's always people in between them. But you can bet I'm going to take you up on that offer eventually.

BTW have you ever seen Cassidy's guest spot on Vampire Diaries? I only saw pics from it, but it appears like Cassidy's character was a successful boxer from the 1800s. No idea if the character was legitimate that tough or was cheating with supernatural means. I wonder if it's worth checking out?

That scene was just...unngh, so hot and so very noir. And The Good Wife does a pretty decent job showing female desire/satisfaction in sex scenes, even though they are not gratuitous. One of my faves from last year was Peter going down on Alicia while NPR's "All Things Considered" played in the background.

My one word reaction to just about everything featured in this episode is WHY? WHY? For the love of god, WHY?

Yeah, the less I say about Lip Service right now, the better because it's making me want to throw things. But, "WHY?", is pretty fucking spot on.

Yes, someone reminded me of that scene and I have to say that I love The Good Wife even more. I think the reason why scenes are these are so hot are because they are so rare. TV and film are so geared toward "male sexual satisfaction" that when a woman is portrayed enjoying herself in sexual situations (and NOT being damned for it), it is reason to celebrate. I was discussing the whole "female sexuality" thing with a friend and she made me realize that while I lament constantly about how lesbians are portrayed (generally as non-sexual after a while...saddled with a baby sooner rather than later), I think the bigger problem is that media doesn't do female sexuality in general so how am I expecting lesbian sexuality to get any exposure with any degree of regularity.

eah, the less I say about Lip Service right now, the better because it's making me want to throw things. But, "WHY?", is pretty fucking spot on.

After last night's episode... AN EVEN BIGGER WHHHHHHHHHHY!

When a CBS drama turns into The L Word unexpectedly yet tastefully. It is a great scene and it actually drives their storyline forward and isn't just about the sex which is amazing!

- oh man, the texas/jodie thing still pisses me off. i thought texas was soooo freakin cute, i really wanted more to happen there.

- anyway, lip service! yay. the show is giving me horrible second hand embarrassment this season but what can i say, i need my lesbo tv fix!! having an aussie character i quite like, she seems ok so far, will need to see more. so far the storylines seem crappy and tired but i feel like the only person in the world who kinda "got" the whole frankie/cat thing and i'm enjoying Frankie's pain in a way. i still hated the whole storyline but i understood their lust for each pther, it reminds me of a similar past relationship i had.
i just hope tess gets more interesting things to do, she's pretty much the only one i look forward to seeing (apart from sam's tank tops that is).


- holy crap that good wife scene was hot. wish there was more!

- lol, thanks for the obama clip, i hadn't seen that!

I did too. It ended so abruptly that I do wonder if it really is over. I'm holding out hope, but yeah, it sucks that it was so hastily shoved aside.

I did get the Frankie/Cat thing (first love and all that) and I did buy their intense connection, but I just wish the actresses had better chemistry because I just never did buy that they couldn't stay away from each other in that sexual way. Probably just a personal feeling on my part. But Frankie, urgh, is the type of character I loathe (male or female) so in the end, I was doomed to really dislike the pairing.

Tess. More Tess. I say that at the end of every episode of the show. I am quite enjoying Lexy, the new roomie, at the moment. I just hope she doesn't break Tess's heart because she appears to be nursing a massive crush.

I just never did buy that they couldn't stay away from each other in that sexual way.

maybe i'm projecting my own feelings on them and creating chemistry but i think they're pretty good. cause i've been cat before, with the bad girl ex that insists she loves you desperately despite being a fuck up in every other way, it's endearing, so endearing and she's so sexy. it's like, all there is is lust, cause logic certainly isn't working. except i ended it after one kiss and stayed with the good girl who brings me flowers and is there for me, and we've been together for a long time now. but that ex, she's still in my head, under my skin. i get it. and with cat being so organised, so in control, and with work going shit she feels like she needs to break out, like all the "control" is caging her, bottling her, sending her on the way to marriage and a job that is plateu-ing cause of a homophobic boss.

you're right, it could've been done a lot better though. im sure its actually quite terrible because i haven't met anyone else who likes it tbh.

But Frankie, urgh, is the type of character I loathe (male or female) so in the end, I was doomed to really dislike the pairing.
yes, i usually HATE characters like her. freddie from skins, shane in the l word. just can't stand them. but i have a soft spot for frankie, which is stupid because she's a moron, but it's either that she is gorgeous or i just wanted her and cat to be all angsty together that i can bear her.
