The L Word is HOT !
My god ... where can I start? OK, from the beginning. I'm 21, straight and I brought the box set from Amazon.com only to see what all the fuss was about (as the series was dubbed the new "Sex in the City" and being a fan I thought I would check it out).
When it arrived I sat down and in one night I watched 6 episodes ... yes 6 episodes. I could'nt stop. Never have I been so captivated by each episode since being introduced to the world of ALIAS.
The L Word centres on Bette and Tina a Lesbian couple living in LA. After 7 years together they believe they are ready to start a family. Bette is the career minded (stressed) one and Tina recently quit her job as an movie executive to have their baby. They have a relationship in which all their friends envy.
Shane is the heartbreaker of the group, sleeps with all the girls then leaves them. She does have a good heart, but is longing for the togetherness that Bette and Tina have.
Alice is the funky blonde writer for LA Magazine. She created 'the chart' in which Shane is the centre of the universe. She can link any person (including herself) back to Shane within 6 moves (sometimes less!).
Dana is the closeted pro-tennis player. Very smart, witty and very sexy but has no gay-dar. She develops a crush on Lara (an assistant chef at her Country Club) but will not act on her feelings. When she does she pushes Lara away. In my opinion, 'Showtime' needs to use Dana more - give her something to get her teeth into like ... Alice!. Use her, she's a really talented actress.
Tim and Jenny live next door to Bette and Tina. Jenny has just moved to LA to be with Tim. She saw Shane and 'her latest conquest' in Bette and Tina's pool and was intrigued.

This is an amazin series from beginning to end!! it will have you on the edge of you're seat, you won't want to stop watching it. All the characters are great. You will be able to relate to them all in some way. It's funny, sassy, sexy!! Its a series about love and friendship. Don't watch it if you get offended by lesbiens having sex because its all the way through it, but its not tacky. Seriously though, its a brilliant series, well written and well acted. I can't wait to buy the second season on dvd because that was also excellent!

Well I'm afraid i have to admit my friends had been going on at me for ages to watch this so called amazing new programme called the L Word and Me being me was like Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! its just gonna be another one of those crap soap style programmes that are weak on script and the acting pappy poo pants.
WELL It's January 2006 and I can say ((she says with a big smile) that i've finally given into my stubbon ways and have happily watched the first series. Actually happily is the wrong word (Appologies to the people who saw me running down the street shouting in Julia Roberts Pretty Woman stylie WO!! WO!! WO!! It's without doubt in my opinion superb man it's sooooo good you must order a copy straight away. Mind you you probably already have seen all 3 series as it seems i'm the last to know. oh well I'll have fun catching up. BIG FUN!!! ENJOY!!!

If you've not seen the L word yet, then I suggest you pick up a copy as soon as possible. If you have, then I don't think I need to say anything to convince you that the DVD is worth getting.
In response to the comments another reviewer made, the show has by no means promoted an anti-Christian message. The art piece in question was clearly an expression of longing for God and not meant as blasphemous. If you'd paid attention to the show, you'd know this. As a matter of fact, the episodes dealing with that art collection had more to do with homophobia and closed-mindedness than anything else. The message conveyed was both powerful and very real.
Anyway, the only reason I've not given this 5 stars is that the region 2 version has one less disc than the region 1 version, missing out on some very interesting and funny bonus features. On the plus side, the cover (which is NOT the one displayed here - it is in fact in full colour and without the big pink L) looks much nicer.

My best friend kept telling me to watch the L Word when it was on tv, but I never got round to it. She loved it, so I bought it for her for Christmas. She showed me some of the first episode and I thought it looked pretty cool, so went out and bought it.
Why did I wait so long to see it!!!!
The L Word was so fantastic and addictive, that I watched the whole of series 1 in 2 days. The women in it are all unbelievably gorgeous and you go through all the emotions.
The story of Bette and Tina was extremely moving
I loved the storylines, I loved the acting, I loved the music...in fact I loved everything about it.
I am now desparate to get hold of the 2nd series!
Buy it....you will love it!!!

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!! Coming from a straight girl's perspective this series is brilliant. For everyone who loved sex in the city, this has to be your replacement. Same sex, different city, it's brilliant! If you straight women out there are figity around gay scenes, ignore them, but they arent that bad or intrusive. The acting is superb and just like sex in the city i found myself drawn to a particular character. Ask anyone and i guarantee most people will tell you its the strange behaviour of Jennifer Beals (a.k.a flashdance!!) and Shane. There is something strangely attractive and ever growing up about the sex crazed hairdresser from L.A.
Watch it, you'll really enjoy the humour and witt that the writers have created with this show it's a definite re-watcher!!
