We gave up after season 2!
So, obviously, season 2 was not on our must-see-asap list...but, because of professional obligation...we mustered, chilled the Pinot and sat down to watch the 10 episodes that were eye-balling us.
No longer 'trans' exclusive...more lesbian overkill. Ali - with the hideous hair and matching eye make-up - goes full-time sapphic, both privately and publicly...cue: graduate gender studies...and what follows is an excruciating parade of lesbo-stereotyping.
And then...episode 9 happened....we sat bolt straight up from our communal sofa slump...our eyes collectively widened...what the f**K?!?
Soloway has let the elephant out of the room...trans*women are not allowed at a women's festival...we were howling. What?!?! This festival is for women who were born female...with a vagina and uterus!
No more political correctness, no more playing-it-safe...the big questions are - at last - being addressed.
Maura is incensed, confused...leaves...and bumps into and onto Anjelica Huston!!!
Can this get any better?!?
Yes. There's another little addition, a backstory...1930s Berlin...Maura's mother, her story. Poignant and - truly - touching.
So...season 1 and most of season 2 were the appetisers. Season 3 could be the real deal, the feast we've been waiting for...we can't wait. Bring it on.
Pilot & Season 1...
An LA family with serious boundary issues have their past and future unravel when a dramatic admission causes everyone's secrets to spill out.
