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.

Jordi was a surprise to me last season when I was told, but now that the actor is older, it's quite obvious and Sophie Giannamore doesn't pass that well.

Rosie O'Donnell was a ray of sunshine and so funny, she felt right at home and I loved watching her antagonise Bette. And this was after weeks of people saying she'll be terrible ๐Ÿ™„ The same people who complain there isn't diverse rep in the show panic as soon as a less glamorous and older butch woman is cast...

Just give me a show where the OG cast pack up and move away. Outside of the trans issue, the new cast are mostly boring AF.

A little off topic but I could talk about this show all day, honestly.
