Wendy & Lisa and the L Word

Of course.

It's been bothering me for a while. How on earth did Wendy & Lisa end up in an episode of Showtime's The L Word, anyway? It's not like anyone's ever heard of them.

But here they are, name checked in "Lynch Pin":

Jenny: What kinda music do you like?

Ewan: Well, uh, mostly I listen to, uh, R&B and funk. Sly Stone, Chaka Khan, Prince. [Jenny and Shane smile at each other.]

Ewan: But I've got no problem wearing headphones if you're not into it.

Shane: (smiling) No, no, Prince is excellent. Especially the Revolution.

Ewan: Yeah, with Wendy and Lisa?

Shane: Yes!

Jenny: God, I love Wendy and Lisa.

Ewan: (chuckling) That's his best shit, hands down.

And it finally occured to me this morning, driving around listening to Miss Gwen Stefani (who also name checks them on her recent solo album's UK release) -- it's got to be Lisa Cholodenko! Yes, I finally Googled the transcript for "Lynch Pin" today, and woudn't you know, the director is Lisa Cholodenko. Another pop mystery solved.
