Editorial Reviews

Four years after Showtime made gay men the focus of its original series Queer as Folk, it was time for a little turnabout with The L Word (bad title, great show). Centering around a tight-knit group of lesbians in Los Angeles, this drama was far removed from its working-class male counterpart in both style and content. While the men of QAF enjoyed a fabulous if melodramatic life on the middle-class streets of Pittsburgh, the women of The L Word lived it up in sunny California, with gorgeous houses, glamorous careers, and sexy wardrobes. Ironically, though, The L Word adhered more to the everyday drama of ensemble shows like thirtysomething than the soap opera antics of QAF, and the results were surprisingly heartfelt and effective, appropriately stylish but never over the top. There was plenty of room for titillation, but creator Ilene Chaiken fashioned from the start a show centered on characters and not just sex, aiming for the heart rather than... well, other places.

5.0 out of 5 stars An important piece for peace November 15, 2007
'The L Word' itself is great however the DVD interface, navigation and extra material, still need some work.
I miss the option of subtitles in the main international languages; even in English is useful for some people.
Nevertheless congratulations to everyone behind 'The L Word'; an important piece for peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Addictive Series March 3, 2008
Verified Purchase
I accidentally bumped into The L Word while flipping through the movie channels late last year while looking for some unboring to watch. I don't know quite what it is about this series... exceptional writing, great acting, the relationships, the need to discover who we are, the need for a sense of belonging, or some combination. Whatever the case, this is the most addictive series I have watched in years. The characters seem to be real people living real lives facing real issues without the typical superficial Hollywierd fluff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome February 8, 2008
By Wake
This is an eclectic and emotionally charged series that, while not an entirely new idea for television, has something that most of the other shows on television are sorely lacking: a storyline that is still enticing after four seasons. While the obvious appeal to those wanting to watch shows with taboo subject matter, this series focuses more on the challenging lifestyles of its characters and approaches the select few special circumstances that they face without overly glorifying them. In fact, it's hard not to identify with them and easy to forget the somewhat trivial issue of their sexual identity. It's a great series that crosses some social boundaries and colorfully illustrates the notion that they are still people, and when it comes to its challenges, life doesn't differentiate between any groups of people. Definetly a must-watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars The L Word sweeps the broken glasses from the ceiling September 27, 2008
The L Word is a groundbreaking hit series on Showtime which got me hooked!
It's one of the greatest show on television. The L Word to me, represents the different lifestyles in the LGBT community. The love, friendship. affairs, arguments, sex, lust, family, all 'real life' issues are laid out in this show. This show changed the way I think and it changed my life. It's a sexy, hip, it's a phenomenal series. Don't let others fool you, this show is the best show ever and it has one of the best actresses ever. Ilene Chaiken is remarkable what she does! If you are a hardcore fan of The L Word, get this package. It's worth it! I love it! We need more shows like this, keep breaking that class ceiling. More glasses needs to be swept.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST!!! September 22, 2008
By Wendy
This show depicts the life of lesbians in a different world and yet they are also showing situations that are really met by lesbians. It is good to see this kind of shows especially since the place I am in is so restricted and most lesbians are closeted cause we have so many homophobics here. THIS SHOW ROCKS!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the L Word!!!!! May 20, 2008
By Dj
I bought these seasons of the L Word only by reading reviews. I am so glad that I did. It is a very addictive and seductive show. I love everything about it. I can't wait until they make more seasons. I will continue to purchase these, and I recieved them very fast in the mail and they were in excellent shape. I TOTALLY recommend buying them!!!
One hot and steamy show that makes you want to be part of it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy individual season sets instead
If you buy the individual season sets (1-4) they cost 88.98$ which is 20$ cheaper.
