Things That Still Exist But Shouldn't
1. The L-Word The L-Word should have been canceled, it would be when the parrot-nosed, blonde-dreadlocked member of Betty engages in mutual masturbation with a sex therapist in a jacuzzi on a cruise ship. That scene was in the middle of season 2, and like many of the scenes that season, it didn't really have a point--other than topless-gross-Betty-member-related shock value--and I believe it was done on a dare.
Since then, it's been an endless parade of ridiculousness: from circus-related incest nightmares, to characters that suddenly go from thoroughly evil to sweet (Helena), to cartoonish testosterone rages, to lengthy chains of interconnected characters that lead absolutely nowhere, to at least one sensual use of a toilet.
The first episode of the 4th season which aired on Sunday featured a 10-minute explanation of how to use an L-Word promotional site, ourchart.com, as well as the most boring downward spiral in history (cocaine, wild parties, and drinking and driving? Oh my!) that looked as if it were shot by a 13-year-old who was very influenced by the movie Blow.
Basically, someone needs to stop this show before Shane meets Cybil Shepard on Ourchart.com, and they have hand-sex in a hot air balloon shaped like boobs that is for some reason tethered to the roof of The Planet (Episode 6).
