Sweet & Low, Equal? 'Gimme Sugar'!

by Jeremy Hooper

Love dyke drama? Having "L Word" withdrawals? Enjoy reality series in which portions (esp. the interview sections) sometimes feel scripted, yet where you're willing to overlook the contrivance in the name of a more interesting viewing experience? Well we have good news for you, Bette-deprived, drama-loving, lovers of the form of "reality" TV that's best represented within quotation marks. For tonight at 10PM ET/PT, the good folks at Logo will debut "Gimme Sugar," a new summer series chronicling the lives of five Sapphic sisters whose love for ladies is rivaled only by their attachment to the Los Angeles nightlife scene.

We've had a chance to watch the first two episodes, and it's pretty much what you'd expect. It's not quite trash TV and its not quite the Discovery Channel. It's a glammy, fluffy portrait of a vastly underepresented community trying to figure out their liesbi-lives. Also, unlike that Showtime show that clearly helped lead to this series' greenlight, this one's actually filmed in the real-life L.A rather than a Vancouever stand-in. So that's something.

If you're around a TV tonight, give it a spin. And fret not, gay boys: This 'Sugar' is unlikely to break either your physical or sexual diet.
