4.0 out of 5 stars "And I come back even stronger", 9 Nov. 2007

"You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger"

- Helen Reddy " I Am Woman"

Season Four is a real test of the acting skill of the cast, and although there are some parts where the writers push the envelope a little too far, the stories are packed with drama, romance, heartbreak, comedy, politics, and yes, of course, it wouldn't be The L-Word without the steamy bits, of which there are many. The music is also exceptionally good this season.

Jenny Schecter continues to be the most annoying character ever written, and by the end of the season you'll hope that the tide never brings her back to Season Five. Full kudos must go to Mia Kirshner for playing this hideous role so perfectly.

Some characters (Shane, Bette) sink to the lowest of lows only to bounce back and even find love, while others (Helena, Kit) seem stuck with their respective demons. Max (Daniela Sea) is still working "his" way to manhood, while dealing with the loss of a family member, and tough times at work. Alice (Leisha Hailey) continues to be the backbone of the show, and Tina (Laurel Holloman) returns to the fold, but it's the amazing cast of newcomers that add the extra spark to the season.

Janina Gavankar heats up the screen as "Papi", a street wise young woman with a list of conquests that leaves even Shane in the dust. There is however, much more to Papi than her tough exterior, and it's a pleasure watching her character develop. There's Cybill Shepherd, who appears as Bette's boss and who's looking forward to moonlighting with the girls' team, but the best of the newcomers is definitely Marlee Matlin as Jodi Lerner, an artist who proves to be Bette's equal in many areas. Good performances are also turned in by Rose Rollins as Tasha, Sandrine Holt as Catherine Rothberg, Annabella Sciorra as Kate Arden, and Kristanna Loken as Paige. Look out also for the unexpected return of two characters from earlier seasons.

This season gives the hit show a much needed character boost, and is well worth watching. The only thing that could have been improved was the "extras" section, because there actually weren't any extras or bonus features relating specifically to the show or the characters.

Season 4 is a return to form for the Lword. Extensive fan criticism has been taken into account and there is here a lot of redressing for some of the odd behaviour we struggled with in season 3. Once again the show is gripping, happy to tackle relevant issues- gay parenting, coming out to your kids and dealing with their rejection. Coming out late in life and dating an army lesbian, amongst other things. There is some great additions to the cast, Rose Rawlins for one, some touching moments and really funny bits.

Love IT Love IT Love IT

Nothing Compares to the L Word...

I Can not Understand Why they cant or wont make more TV programmes / Films like this.... Write a story.. and then instead of the tipical man and woman situation... put in two women... that's simple, is it not?!?!?! Why is nearly every Lesbian Movie about comming out... why do we have in endure 2 hours of I might be.. I might not be... Oh My God... I'm dirty... It's Wrong... blah blah blah... Why cant it just start with them being Gay.. and Gettting on with Life...and Living...

L Word has Set the Bar for all future Lesbian Screnings.
