Run away! Run away!

We all know Jenny Schecter is Ilene Chaiken's Mary Sue.*

So I'm watching the opening of season five, episode one, and Jenny's writing a scene for her movie. Chaiken is clearly writing the main character in Lez Girls, Jessie, as Jenny's Mary Sue. An incredibly poorly written Mary Sue which Chaiken is apparently using to show how messed-up Jenny is.

I try not to bring out the i word at the drop of a hat, but ohdeargodirony.

* I said this exact sentence to M, and she said "Yes, Ilene Chaiken's Mary Sue. Of course! We all know that." M's not big on remembering celebrity's names. Also, she doesn't share my penchant for cilice via The L Word.
