“Off the Chart: Generation Q,” Episode 5: The Uncle Shane and Mama B Show

Here's your episode of Off The Chart: Generation Q for Jan. 6

“We never get any good words. Vulva, labia, throuple!” — Alice Pieszecki

Never mind what you want; Episode 5 of The L Word: Generation Q is begging you to tell us what you need. We catch up with our hungover favourites post-Shane McCutcheon 40th birthday bash, and everyone’s trying to get their priorities straight: Alice is navigating throupledom, Bette’s trying to be a better mom, Shane’s forced to contemplate parenthood, Dani is shutting down her daddy and Micah’s exploring love and sex with Jose. Poor Finley, meanwhile, is still a hot mess—and in desperate need of some guidance and guardianship. In the end, we could all use an Uncle Shane and a Mama B in our lives.
