There haven’t been that many TV shows based around a group of lesbians so we can’t be too picky with what we watch. However, Lip Service had some genuine potential in my book, I’m sorry to hear the BBC won’t be giving Sam, Tess and Lexy another run at it.
Tonight! BBC 1! 10:50pm! If you were left bereft by the six-episode abruptness (and sheer oddness) of Lip Service Part Deux, well Billie Piper will be locking lips with Kaya Scodelario. Woohoo!
Here we are ladies and gentlebums, the final episode in the shortest series ever on television*. Six palty episodes. You have to hand it to them, though, they certainly shoved a lot of plotlines. Will there be a season three? to be honest I don’t think so; not when series two was so short.
Hang on a minute, this is the penultimate episode? That’s just 17 months to make six episodes? What the hell is going on at the Beeb? Don’t they know how many people love this show? Plus I’m just starting to get into it. Seriously, though, have you ever heard of a season of anything on the tellybox being just six episodes long?
So, it’s Tuesday and I’m only recapping. Why? Well, to be honest, this is shite. Sorry but it is. I was sold The L Word in Glasgow and by gum that’s what I want!
Are we over that shock? Not likely. Though the writers will be nice to us now, right? Not, bloody likely! There are spoilers from the moment you click through, so don’t if you don’t want to know.
Lip Service season 2 is under way and has not disappointed. One big shock and one great new character and we are only two episodes in. Lets have a little look at the lady who brings the sexy Aussie doc to life, Ms Anna Skellern
Last week, HAL reviewed the very first episode of Lip Service series two. So, I volunteered to do the honours this week. And what an episode I picked. Holy Jesusing fuck! If you haven’t seen this episode yet, do not read on. WARNING: HERE BE SPOILERS! You have been warned! (Also, there may be swearing.)
I am Team Frankie all the way, but for the love of her protruding hip-bones, can we have a small piece of happy this season? If I see her cry one more time….
Morning Gaelickers! 1 day to go. For those of you gazing at me with blank expressions I am of course talking about Lip Service’s return to the Beeb tomorrow night. Some of us are counting down to it. I think the Gaelick team are divided fairly equally into two camps. Team Frankie, puts up hand, and Team Boring Sam
Finally, after a two-year wait, Lip Service is winging its way back to our screens. Still no confirmation on a date, though. UPDATE – 9pm on 20th of April. What is the Beeb’s problem? They have a fab show with great acting and have no idea what the hell to do with it. We’re back pondering the conundrum: Team Sam or Team Frankie? When season one ended, we were deadlocked on our poll.
Morning Gaelickers! Not sure how it’s looking wherever you are but here in Dublin it’s currently grey skies. I’m sure it will brighten up. I don’t know what to make of March so far, the first day of March was a beautiful Spring day, the last week icy winds. I can’t wear sun-glasses AND a wolly hat, I will look ridiculous. Enough pontificating about the weather, the news!
Lip Service will be coming back for a second series it has been confirmed. So where did it leave off and what are your hopes for the future? Sam v Frankie, round 2!
These are the top 10 articles on Gaelick that you just could keep your peepers off this year. Is your favourite here, or have we left out something very important? Read! Share! Comment!
It’s cold out there folks, so I think you need something to warm your cockles, or your mussels, or both. So, I have put together a catalogue of some of the best sex scenes between women. Needless to say, this ain’t safe for work. Unless you work in my dream job.
It feels like years since Lip Service was on the telly. We were told back in May that they were filming and it would be on our screens in early 2012. Then nothing. Complete radio silence. You’d think that they’d be “leaking” little bits of information to keep our appetites whetted. So I’m worried.
