So this premiered (you can see episode one for free on YouTube) and the show is doubling down on lesbians sleeping with TIMs.

Last season we had Finley hooking up with Tess and Angie dating Jordi. This season we have Shane headed for a romance with Tess, while Alice's girlfriend flirts with a bisexual TIM. In a small group of lesbians, what are the odds that 4 are attracted to TIMs?

It's such a disappointment because I really do like the show. There's so much nostalgic pleasure in seeing Bette pine after Tina, or hearing Bette pronounce "groupon." Supposedly Helena will make an appearance, which pleases me, and Rosie O'Donnell plays the kind of butch character this show has always needed. But this incessant need to pair lesbians with biological men and act like it's perfectly natural sours the whole thing for me.

I keep getting the original recommended to me, but I can't get past how horrible the MC (girl has long black hair, with atheletic boyfriend) is. She just feels wrong to me, like a walking trouble magnet.

Yeah, her character goes some weird places on the show. I don't want to spoil it, but you're definitely not alone in disliking her and that becomes a storyline.
