I just finished watching the Season 3 premiere and finale of "The L Word." They are both featured free On Demand so that you get all attached and order Showtime to watch Season 4. I watched both of these episodes on Angela's suggestion. They busted a CW all over the episodes, cutting out all the sex and swear words, but you could still get the gist of the action. And I've figured it out..."The L Word" is just a normal soap opera. Instead of portraying heterosexual relationships, they portray lesbian ones.
I know I am stating the obvious...but I really believed them when the show first started and they said it would "truly" portray the lives of lesbian women. Perhaps they are. Perhaps the point of the show is that lesbians on TV do the same insanely unrealistic things that straight people do.
I'm going to think on this some more...but not too much more. I'm not going to subscribe to Showtime, so what's the point?
