Strong points of the season include Bette and Kit confronting the death of their father (the superb Ossie Davis) and Shane's new job as a gopher for a high-powered Hollywood producer (the equally superb Camryn Manheim). Less strong are the distracting, neo-expressionistic passages meant to be glimpses into Jenny's creative mind and the interminable use of the series' theme song--re-interpreted in a number of genres--to the point of distraction. Mark's voyeurism, which crosses all sorts of boundaries as he installs hidden cameras around the house, is a brilliant way to challenge male viewers who may tune in just to TiVo their way to the sex scenes. That said, the arc of that particular story grows increasingly far-fetched as Mark somehow avoids criminal prosecution and instead endures the horrible fate of having Jenny refuse his offer of coffee and a muffin. Despite its flaws, The L Word is a show that deserves to be cheered on, not for its politics, but for the skillful way it conveys complex human entanglements with sensitivity. --Ryan Boudinot

S2 lived up to its promise from the producers. In comparison to S1 (which was quite good), S2 provided much better storytelling and Ilene Chaiken and her production staff have become much better film makers. This show is a very adult drama. One example, the Bette and Tina (Jennifer Beals and Laurel Holloman: fiery chemistry) saga remind one of Bergman's "Scene's From A Marriage" as this couple struggles with issues of sexual inertia, miscarriage, infedility, the loss of self to a seductively potent and sometimes dismissive partner, wanting sexual intimacy with your partner while your partner is seemingly disinterested.Read more ›
But by the end of the first episode, I was hooked like no pornography could aspire to hook someone. The L Word isn't about lesbian sex. Does it contain some? Yeah. Do I like seeing it? Can't deny it. But the show is largely character and plot-driven, and if you try to watch it with only shallow feelings in your heart, you will be sorely disappointed. Every character is unique, with their own flaws, misgivings and uncertainties, and it really makes them all very watchable. There are shows that have some characters that, you know, they're okay, but you find yourself wishing for them to get back to one of the more entertaining characters. Not so with The L Word. Every interaction and every character is presented in a very fresh and original way, so that you never feel like they're reusing material and you're always glued to the TV screen to find out what happens next.
My greatest regret about moving out of my parents' house is that I can't afford Showtime so that I can watch season 3.
But there's just as much good here: the blossoming of Shane's character (and she is just truly a wonderful person); the addition of the very fine and fun Carmen; the hook-up of Dana and Alice, which is just so full of joy; watching the superb Jennifer Beals deal with heartache and loss; the astounding Pam Grier and Jennifer Beals coping with their father's disintegration; and Kit becoming owner of the Planet and really finding herself.
At the end of the day I don't think any TV show is perfect, especially when you take each episode by itself. As far as I'm concerned, sesaon 1 had some lackluster episodes and sub-plots, too, and really, all great shows do. It's impossible to put in 12 or 14 absolutely perfect shows that will please all viewers from start to finish. But taken as a whole, the L Word season 2 was still a riveting experience, making me laugh and cry at so many different moments.Read more ›
1. The introduction of Carmen. My god this girl is hot!
2. The Shane/Carmen/Jenny triangle. I loved the whole storyline. Whenever Shane and Carmen were on screen together my tv melted. The chemistry is unrivaled in my opinion and add Jenny to the mix and you had the most gripping storyline of season two.
3. The incredible acting abilities of Jennifer Beals and Pam Grier. The Melvin death scenes were acted so well by these incredible actresses,
My only real complaint about season two was the lack of group scenes which we were spoilt with in season one. Also the lack of screen time given to the characters of Shane and Carmen. The small time they were given they did so well, it's just a pity that more time wasn't afforded to that particular storyline. That's the only reason I'm giving it 4/5 instead of 5.
Go buy it, and enjoy the ride!
