The L Word in AfterLife…The Interrogation Tapes

Just in case you weren’t frustrated enough by  The L Word’s final truncated season (only 8 episodes), with the cheap way creator Eileen Chaiken chose to create a “murder mystery” storyline running through the entire season (unbeknownst to the actresses themselves), and the ultimate question of  “Who Killed Jenny Schecter?” remaining unanswered in the final moments….you have still another chance to want to throw shoes at your TV set (or, at least at your laptop or PC) by watching ShowTime’s post-mortem exclusively released on the ShowTime L Word website “Interrogation Tapes. “

We are enticed to watch for a new suspect every Monday. Woo-Hoo!

So far, these torturous clips (for those watching, not the characters being interrogated) have taken most of the characters to new lows.

There’s Shane the pyro, who apparently set fire to her own shop; Bette, who in one of the wussiest moments I’ve seen her in so far, proclaims her angst at Tina not asking if she (Bette) wouldn’t want to give birth to their second child, and Tina sharing how her sister used to have sex with her when they were children, thus relegating Bette to being her “second” as opposed to her “first” female lover- as she has maintained all along.

What’s really sad is that these “confessions” seem totally out of context and betray the actresses, not to mention what they have established with their characters over the prior 5 seasons.

On the other hand, Sgt. Duffy making a pass at Helena was playful, and …oops, too bad the male cop had to come back into the room to interrupt what might have been the Sarge putting a move on her suspect! 😉

Now that “The Farm” is not going to be picked up by ShowTime, the whole reason for Alice being the prime suspect is really, well…suspect.

Too much cheap commercialism has clouded what could have been a strong finish for this milestone television show. Kudos to all the actresses who carried on their roles with grace and, well, of course…drop dead sex appeal.
