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.

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.

The L word is a truly groundbreaking project. It is perhaps the first mainstream TV exploration of Lesbian sexualities, and I will bet my oven toasty, will stand the test of time as a major queer text. Apart from all that epic stuff, it is of course downright sexy! I seriously adore these characters and await the third series, literally, rather precariously I imagine, on the further most edge of my seat...
I have my beefs however. Don't get me wrong, this show had me glued to the screen for weeks, Wednesday after Wednesday I did not go to the club. Nope not once.
Now I personally do have enough critical theory up my sleeve to not even bother rising to the juvenile remarks made below re. religious right etc., - and I'm afraid to say, I really do hate to say it! That The L word fails the test of making it anywhere past 1970's white middle-class lesbian feminist notions of girls in the City done good.
Not that I expect ugly, let alone poor characters (Yes Shane is a hairdresser orphan, but she hangs out with rich and pretty people now so its ok), let alone more than a nod to questions of ethnicity, let alone the odd transgender character out on a limb to break the binary (Yes there is a male-id'd lesbian... progressive): this is Hollywood afterall. But I get real sick of hearing about how nice it is that there are "No stereotypes!" Yes the L word transcends stereotyping. Rich, professional, Cosmopolitan sipping, power suit wearing femme characters it seems are not stereotypes at all. They are just like straight women in fact!
There is some relief - await the second series. There is some actually quite decent exploration of Shane's masculinity, and not just cos she gets the girls (against of course the token straight male waiting patiently to be emasculated...

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!!
