好不容易看完了 The L Word 精彩的第四季,劇情沒甚麼讓人念念不忘的地方,倒是結尾搭上了一首 Pink 的 Dear Mr.President 讓我感動非常。


Dear Mr. President
Come take a walk with me
Let's pretend we're just two people and
You're not better than me
I'd like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep
What do you feel when you look in the mirror
Are you proud

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye
How do you walk with your head held high
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why

Dear Mr. President
Were you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
Are you a lonely boy
How can you say
No child is left behind
We're not dumb and we're not blind
They're all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell

What kind of father would take his own daughter's rights away
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay
I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
You've come a long way from whiskey and cocaine

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye
How do you walk with your head held high
Can you even look me in the eye

Let me tell you bout hard work
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you bout hard work
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you bout hard work
Hard work

Hard work
You don't know nothing bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
Oh

How do you sleep at night
How do you walk with your head held high
Dear Mr. President
You'd never take a walk with me
Would you



然後對著歌詞,聽 Pink 的現場,起了一身的雞皮疙瘩。怎麼這麼會寫又會唱呢?原來 Pink 在我心中的形象還一直停留在 Get the Party Started 的那個龐克妹,看來還真是對她的一種污辱。



關於The L Word
其實對於L Word 裡面誰會跟誰睡,誰會跟誰ㄘㄟˋ,都已經不是我看戲的重點了,而且想想我從來沒有完整的看完哪一季過。

第一季的故事以Jenny為主線,發展的還不錯,但是後來Jenny莫名其妙發瘋,而且還越來越瘋。二、三季開始著重於別的角色的發展後,似乎就在呈獻一種感官駕馭的狀態,而且每個正妹不是拉子就是bi,男人不是gay就是愛上les,非常好混以及性關係混沌的世界。反正每個角色的出現就是一個新的性工具,這點滿像Grey's Anatomy走到後來劇情的重點(也是弱點,被罵到不行),只是把所有的男性人物都換成美豔的蕾絲邊。


但是Showtime影集有口碑,如果表姊表妹的劇情不可取,那麼至少整部戲的製作看起來仍然是很精美的。每一季仍然有大大小小的議題去探討,所以才走了四季這麼長。(但我覺得主觀眾群好像也不太把重點放在這些嚴肅的情節上,我倒是滿愛看的,尤其是第一季的 Jenny 轉性到出櫃逃婚的心路歷程,第四季的 Max 變性)


第四季的劇情還是一樣隨性胡搞,但是跟前三季比起來明顯好笑太多了,害我覺得這齣戲是不是要轉型成喜劇路線啦!也讓我第一次有耐心地把整季的TLW追完。嚴肅的角色突然卡通化了起來,甚至Bette 和 Shane 都加入了 Alice 的搞笑團體。不過Jenny,嗯,她還是一樣繼續在發瘋。


第四季的笑點首要感謝的就是 Papi 。真的很喜歡這個拉丁女孩(其實本人是印度血統?),以及她在劇裡萬人斬的卡薩諾瓦形象,而且很有"兄弟"義氣。第四季的新角色不管歸屬如何,心機是淺是深,基本上都還挺讓人喜歡的。不知來意是善是惡的Catherine,外表酷似王菲,一雙高深莫測的眼睛加上邪邪的表情,任誰都會心甘情願拜倒在她的石榴裙下。酷酷的Tasha也是越來越有魅力,而且Rose Rollins 演技好到讓人害怕的地步,把女兵的角色演活了,這個人物被她詮釋得非常連貫以及有說服力。不過很抱歉,我雖然欣賞Marlee Matlin,但是一點都不喜歡 Jodi 這個角色(還比較喜歡Tom咧)。至於最後來個臨門一腳的女導演,則是完全失敗又多餘,希望她不會再出現了,不然 Tina 第四季一直被 Jenny 釘孤枝是釘心酸的嗎,寧缺勿濫寧缺勿濫啊,Tina!單親辣媽 Paige 雖然和 Shane 搭起來還挺有意思的,但是本人都明說和劇組處得不愉快了,也不能再期待甚麼了。該走的還是得走吧!
