WHO DOESN’T HAVE A WEAKNESS FOR BEAUTIFUL WOMEN?
In other fall pilot news, there’s yet another potential series in the works with a lesbian character (that makes four so far, including Hackett and Traveling in Packs).
CBS has ordered to pilot (cast-contingent) The Rich Inner Life of Penelope Cloud, a multicamera half-hour comedy about a former literary star, Penelope, who has an epiphany and opts to pursue optimism rather than cynicism. The lesbian is Penelope’s housemate and ex-girlfriend, Eva, “a choreographer with a weakness for wine, cigarettes, and beautiful young women,” according to the breakdown (the role hasn’t been cast yet). Eva and the mostly straight Penelope had a brief affair years ago and remained good friends after they broke up when Penelope realized she prefers men.
Eva currently prefers her lead dancer, who’s developed an attitude problem in class since they began sleeping together. If I were you, Eva, I’d take a page from the Bette Porter playbook and kick that dancer to the curb before she goes all Nadia on you!
I can’t make out any of the lyrics besides the chorus (which is, not surprisingly, “goth girls are easy”), but the video involves one goth girl eyeing another across a crowded room, and they both remind me of the girls I secretly admired in seventh grade who used to sneak cigarettes between classes and listen to Depeche Mode on their Walkmans, so I’m in!
Hmm, maybe I’m the one who’s easy …
IS IT WRONG TO HAVE FLUFFY BUNNY FEELINGS FOR A COMIC?
Only the first issue and already with the lesbian jokes? Excellent!
Sigh. I miss Buffy.
