Brittana & Calzona Return!

No, I'm not talking about folded up pizza and I'm not singing "Rule Brittania" to you in honour of my British heritage.

You probably already know, but this week we saw the return of two of our favourite "couples"* to the screen.

First up, we had Glee on Tuesday, which saw the return of Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera).

Now there wasn't much in the way of obvious lesbianism during the season 3 premiere of Glee this week, but we have been promised many a time by the creators, including top dog, Ryan Murphy, that this season we will see Santana accepting herself.

Whether or not Brittany will be by her side is another matter completely, but it'll be interesting to see how the writers handle a lesbian couple on the show. And if the gay couple, Kurt & Blaine, are anything to go by, they'll execute it with class and dignity.

And in Grey's Anatomy this Thursday, we saw the return of Callie (Sara Ramirez), Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and their daughter Sofia.

Last season was a roller coaster ride for Calzona - they moved in together, Arizona moved to Africa, they broke up, Callie got pregnant with Mark's (Eric Dane) baby, they fought, they got back together, they got caught in a car crash, Callie gave birth and they got married.

Did you get all that? I told you it was a roller coaster.

Anyway, this week's double season opener saw Calzona pretty much as a happy couple with a few adorable scenes of the two of them with baby Sofia.

Jessica Capshaw, who plays Arizona, has recently said that Calzona are currently just enjoying married life, but expect something to go wrong for them any time soon.

I mean, it wouldn't be Grey's without drama, right?

Do you lesbos watch either of these shows? What are you hoping will happen next for these couples?

You can catch Glee on FOX, Tuesdays 8/7c and Grey's Anatomy on ABC, Thursdays 9/8c if you live in the States.

*Brittana are not officially a couple, I know, but you just wait.

Lost Girl: Is It Worth Watching?

Firstly, apologies for the lack of posts, ladies. I've had internet trouble for far too long. Anyway, I'm baaaaack!

So, I've been told by several of my friends to watch the show Lost Girl.

Firstly, I'm far too lazy to google it to find out what it's about and secondly, the title "Lost Girl" for a TV show just reminds me of Gossip Girl, which I clearly do not watch.

From what my friends have told me, it's a supernatural type drama (which makes me think Buffy), but they've also said it sucks in some areas, i.e. the plot lines are sometimes lame. (Hello, Gossip Girl).

However, I do know that there's lesbian/bisexual characters in it.

That last one is usually a deal-maker for me, but I really have no interest whatsoever in this show. Maybe it's the sucky title, maybe it's that it just looks low-budget (and not in a good way), but I don't want to watch it.

So I challenge you/want your opinion.

Should I watch 'Lost Girl'? If yes, what do you think will persuade me to do so?
