heh…okay, so i totally stole that line from “house”…i love that show. but i think my lust for hugh laurie is pretty evident if you know me well enough. [editor's note in retrospect: to clarify, i don't really watch "the l word" on mute]
anyway. i went over to my friends’ house tonight to celebrate me getting 3 job offers within 3 (business) days, a feat that i can pretty much guarantee will never ever happen again in my lifetime. and in this economy, i am counting my lucky fucking stars, let me tell you.
so they ordered a couple pizzas and had a couple of really great bottles of red wine. (mmmm, wine) and we watched “the l word.”
to explain, my friends are lesbians. and because there is a dearth of lesbian-centered television shows, they watched the lesbian soap opera that is “the l word.” and because one of said friends was my former roommate before the Scotland Move, i got sucked into the show as well.
- *spoiler alert!!! stop reading if you watch “the l word”!!!**
so…jenny dies at the beginning of the season – something that i have to honestly say that i’m not that upset about. her character is a complete manipulative bitch. i hate her. A LOT. the rest of the season is flashbacks showing how all of the characters have a reason to kill her. (hell, if i were a writer on the show, I would have a reason to kill her, and she’s a fictional character.) but i digress.
something that i found in watching the show is that elizabeth berkeley, one of the worst actresses on television, movies, stage, WHATEVER, has now added her crappy acting skills to the ensemble cast of “the l word”. (you may recognize her from such television greats like “saved by the bell” or such classic films as “showgirls”.) bleh. pretty much anything that i’ve ever seen her in, i’ve desperately wanted for someone to invent the ability to reach through the screen solely so i could punch her in the neck.
terrible, terrible acting.
i mean, even though “the l word” is not really that great of a show (a crappy soap opera, even with lesbians, is still a crappy soap opera), it’s just plummeted the depths of television by adding elizabeth berkeley to the mix. it’s possible that it may be worse than a reality television show. possibly. okay, maybe not, but it’s close.
i am firmly convinced that not ONE GOOD ACTOR ever came out of “saved by the bell.” if someone can prove me wrong, i will gladly eat my words. i’m honestly surprised that our girl berkeley even has a JOB. blech.
also, i’m drunk. (what is it with me and blogging while i’m drunk???) but even so, my opinion is the same, whether i’m sober or not.
