Soapie slick lesbians (pt 4)

It’s over. I think it’s over. The five-week lesbian storyline on Home & Away has ended ambiguously with Joey leaving, and Charlie kicking herself for hurting Joey. (Previous post here and here).

The surprise star of this sub-plot is Charlie’s little sister, Ruby, who, after being freaked by Charlie’s lesbo-turn, lectures Charlie to look beyond her own nose and Be-Have for Joey. Alas, the angst of youthful lust and the age gap is too much and Joey contracts for three months of prawn hauling –  possibly hoping that long nights at sea and a hold full of crustaceans will help her get over Charlie – leaving Charlie to contend with winks and phone numbers from landbound lesbians in the ‘hood.

All of this I’m guessing from reading this superhilarious recap by Autostraddle [via Defamer]. Warning – don’t drink while reading.

On another note, I’m tickled to stumble upon a new (to me) lesbiantainment blog at Autostraddle. Someone needs to fill up the obvious lack of a sense of humour in this here place *sound of crickets*

Soapie slick lesbians

Dissed-claimer: I do not watch soap operas.

The longest running half-hour daily soaps on Australian telly are Neighbours and Home & Away. If you ask me, they’re awful but as they’ve been on air for YEARS, I guess my vote doesn’t count.

Home & Away are plopping in a lesbian lurve story this season, with dating scenes and kissing and I hope intimations of a fuckfest or two. Because we do have sex, you know.  Kids – yes, you, the one who’s been experimenting since secondary school – should continue watching the series (tell your mums I said so) or play your Xbox or whatever you do at 7pm when no one else is looking.

Esther Anderson and Kate Bell play Charlie and Joey, one a policewoman, the other a deckie on a trawler. Warm feelings below the belt and under the bra develop between these cuties.

Lesbian storylines aren’t new but they always fizzle out once the ratings shoot up; usually one half decides to go st8 and has a baby with a man, or one partner will die in the course of duty.

If you want to see a good lesbian storyline in a drama, check out Los Hombres de Paco, a Spanish TV drama with even hotter lesbians!

And if you can’t get enough of lesbians on screen, go to AfterEllen.com for more good looking lesbians than you can handle.

How many times can I say lesbian in a single post, eh?

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
