Buh Bye Chaiken

Showtime is zeroing in on new series pickups, and "The Farm" is not going to be picked up.

"The Farm" was going to be a spinoff from the popular Showtime series, "The L Word. It was going to involve Alice going to jail and being framed for Jenny's murder. (Gah) Guest stars in the pilot were Famke Janssen, Laurie Metcalfe, and Melissa Leo.

I for one, am glad this isn't going to be picked up. TLW was a decent show, at best, and this show sounded so so stupid. Lesbians in jail? Haven't seen that before. Although, in a way, I am also sad that this show isn't being picked up because there aren't any other lesbian centered shows on anymore. Maybe Showtime will remember that they still have a core audience and we will watch if there is a good quality lesbian show.


  1. I was wondering what kind of ridiculous ruse would have to be cooked up to land Alice in jail in NEW YORK when Jenny's death/murder took place in LA?!

  2. Exactly! The whole storyline didn't make sense and I can't believe that is how she would end her show.

    BTW, thanks for the comment and following, I appreciate it so much. :)

  3. Ughh. That show sounded so dumb. I'm glad it wasn't picked up.
