"The Farm" Bought The Farm Already?

The L Word spinoff, "The Farm" has apparently bought the farm, been snuffed, dead in the water. According to Showtime Won't Buy "The Farm", Showtime will not be continuing production of the show. Laurie Metcalfe, Famke Janssen, Melissa Leo were cast in guest roles in the pilot.

Why is Showtime ditching "The Farm"? It was supposed to be grittier than other female prison dramas (helloooo Bad Girls). We all remember those scenes with Bette and the carpenter and Helena and her cellmate and were looking forward to whatever Chaiken was going to do this the whole female prison drama concept. Come on Showtime! What gives?

I was so looking forward to seeing Laurie Metcalfe playing another kind of crazy. Maybe even a crazy lesbian? Ok, crazy straight woman is ok too. I've really enjoyed Laurie Metcalfe's past roles.

What on earth is left out there for us lesbians to watch now? Please don't let it be those horrible storylines on All My Children and Grey's Anatomy. They just don't 'represent'.
