I had this notion when I first started watching the L word and the main characters would always talk up these wildly successful, poon-hungry older lesbians before they actually came on screen, that every single one of them — doctors, lawyers, professors, even the legendary “Papi” from season 4 — would all be played by Jane Lynch. And it would just be kind of a running joke like oh I wonder who this hard-ass lady senator gonna be that they’ve talked about for two episodes now… HAH JANE LYNCH… AGAIN!
Unfortunately, nobody ever asked me to write for the L word, so it continues to be a very depressing (but still wonderful) show.
and it went surprisingly well. All but one of the girls (there were 15 of them, ages 7-12) were really stoked to write stories. We had two(!) stories about talking toilets. Maybe kids aren’t so bad (?!?!) (jk they’re still pretty obnoxious) (but some are funny)
