Bravo’s LOLwork “Lesbian Cat Wedding”

LOLwork fans were undoubtedly as unhappy as I was last night when I discovered that Bravo had moved the final episode from its already late 11:30 p.m. timeslot to 1:30 a.m. You may be wondering what was so important that the final episode had to be bumped? Good question! My cable guide showed that Bravo instead chose to rerun the same episode of Top Chef 3 times within a 3 ½ hour period. Ridiculous.

This highlights, though, the uphill battle that LOLwork has faced in its brief run. Bravo initially had the show start at 11:00 p.m., which was already late for a new series premiere. How did Bravo expect LOLwork to find its audience with such a late start? It just got worse when a couple weeks in, Bravo pushed the show back to 11:30 p.m. That meant I had to sit through a half hour of the Jersey Shore rocket scientists on Watch What Happens Live before I could get to my Cheezburger crew. On the other hand, I did learn that viewers think JWoww has the hottest boobs in the Jersey group. I wish I had known that earlier, I could have saved myself the cost of grad school.

Bravo clearly didn’t believe in the show, and it looks unlikely that there will be a second season. If that is indeed the case, I would urge team Cheezburger to transform their show into a web series. I have not invested in any web series to date, but would make the effort for this wacky group of people.

Last night’s episode was the type of feel good reality television that is sadly lacking these days. The team put together a cat-themed wedding for a lesbian couple. Will planned the event and officiated. He even went the extra mile and had a cat cake made. The cake was supposed to resemble his cat, Winston, but it looked about as much like him as Hello Kitty would have. The event was simple, but sweet. It was also a timely episode considering Washington State’s recent legalization of gay marriage.

The episode was not without its absurd moments. There was a serious discussion about words that could no longer be used on their website, such as “prostitute.” Paul demonstrated the timeless (sarcasm) humor of a whoopee cushion during stock inventory. I just hope Paul did not sell the ones he put his mouth on. Forest decided to embrace his inner letch with his video camera work. The thing that I like about these vignettes is the fact that you can see yourself having the same discussions with coworkers when in your early 20s.

Normally, I pick a Willism that is sarcastic. But for this last episode, I chose Will’s words at the wedding, mostly because everyone seemed so happy to hear them. Favorite Willism: “It is now my distinct honor to pronounce you wife and wife.”

I hope to see LOLwork back for a second season, but if that doesn’t happen, there will always be icanhascheezburger.
