The third season of Showtime's The L Word is all about transitions. The season opens with Alice Pieszecki (Leisha Hailey) coping with her between-seasons break-up with Dana Fairbanks (Erin Daniels), who is herself headed for an even heavier series of transitions. Kit Porter (Pam Grier) both falls in love with a younger man and discovers she is going through menopause. Shane (Katherine Moennig), who spent much of the first two seasons of the show hopping from bed to bed, finds herself more or less committed to Latina deejay Carmen (Sarah Shahi). And the second season's resident villain, Helena Peabody (Rachel Shelley), becomes embroiled in a sexual harassment case that leaves her ultimately looking like the victim. As with previous seasons, The L Word gets all hot and bothered with various seductions filmed to sometimes jarring music on the soundtrack, but it's the day-to-day foibles and celebrations of Los Angeles's lesbian community that keep the show interesting. Newcomer Moira/Max (Daniela Sea) begins the process of gender reassignment, making for some curious situations with potential employers. Bette (Jennifer Beals) and Tina (Laurel Holloman) begin to drift apart when Tina lands a big movie studio job and starts feeling attracted to men, leading to a custody battle over their baby daughter. Where The L Word starts getting preachy and obvious is in the opening flashback sequences. When these vignettes refer to current characters of the show, they make sense; when they depict situations meant to underline how queer identity has evolved over the years, they seem politically overloaded. The L Word works intelligently through its characters' concerns without having to resort to such direct appeals for tolerance. Its strength isn't in making lesbian culture appear more mainstream, but in making us care and identify with these women's struggles, regardless of our sexual orientation. --Ryan Boudinot

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the best one yet January 22, 2007
Format:DVD
The third season of the L Word picks right up with all the excitement, romance, and sexual tension of the previous seasons. Alice is struggling to get over the loss of her best friend and her lover while Dana moves on with Lara. One of the biggest turns of the season comes when Dana is diagnosed with breast cancer and the women struggle to help her cope and to deal with it themselves. Tina and Bette's daughter, Angelica, is six months old and the two have done their best to reconcile and form a stable home for her. Bette is in the process of trying to adopt Angelica, so the couple has routine visits with a social worker. Shane and Carmen are in a committed relationship and living together in Jenny's house. Carmen's job as a dj is starting to pick up and she's even offered a position djing for Russell Simmons at some point. Shane opens a hair studio in the middle of a skateboard shop and, in typical Shane fashion, struggles to stay loyal to her (gorgeous) girlfriend. Jenny is off on a road trip somewhere with a girl named Moira who has a gender identity crisis. At some point during the season Moira becomes Max and decides to transition to a male. Meanwhile Jenny struggles to sell her book. Kit finally gets a storyline besides being the alcoholic has been sister and even finds a love interest. And finally, in one of the best additions, Helena Peabody is finally a full member of the cast and has her own story lines not involving Bette and Tina.

This season of the L Word is emotionally charged and takes some chances that they haven't in previous years. With the addition of Moira, the show brings the first transgendered recurring role to network television.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Portrayal of A GROUP of Lesbian!! November 7, 2006
Format:DVD
This show, including this season, is one that is groundbreaking and representative of many people who have not before been given representation. The focus is first and formost about women and the lives of women. There is love, loss, drama, and all that goes in between. It makes you laugh at times and cry at others, but life is not a fairytale and this show doesn't make it to be... that is what makes it so great. There a femmes and butches, a ton who are somewhere in the middle. It makes you reconsider the labels you place on people and realize there are all shades of gray. Whether you are a stay at home parent, trying to become a parent, happy in love, breaking up, sleeping around, or transitioning... from bed to bed or from female to male, you can see yourself in this show.

Some have been critical of Ilene Chaiken (not Irene as the misguided poster at top called her) claiming that the show isn't realisitc or that the writing is bad. We should remember that this show is about a group of lesbians, not all the lesbians in the world. It could be people we know but it might not be. To claim a show unrealistic because it isn't a story of your own life is to also say that every representation of every woman is only real if that woman goes through what you go through, that every reprentation of whatever race you are is only real if that person goes through what you go through, and given the wide variety of diversity in programming any reasonable person knows that to be untrue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Season Yet April 18, 2007
Format:DVD
I breathe a huge sigh of relief as the writers have finally seemed to hit their stride! The writing in this season is the best so far.

The storyline keeps moving and changing in a way that creates a very unique journey among this group of friends. Once again, commendations for taking on very real topics, including trans identity, menopause, joint parenting, and cancer.

The acting shines on almost everyones part. My new favorite character, "Angus the Manny" is probably the worst actor, but he's so likeable, it's okay.

As others have said, unfortuately the Betty music is still around, but it is _much_ less prevalent and distracting. The rest of the music is actually pretty decent.

Another negative point is that not only are old dropped story lines not picked up, but the habit of dropping stories w/o explaination continues. Also, no amazing guest stars ala Cameron Manhiem or Sandra Bernhardt from Season 2.

Packaging: They finally got wise and used slim-case design, which is great b/c it doesn't waste space, but now it doesn't match the other 2 seasons. There are some great special features, but there are at least two major spoilers right on the package, so don't look at it too closely as you're putting the discs in.

Still a solid 4-star show - can't wait for season 4. Maybe I can finally give it 5 stars...

2.0 out of 5 stars What happened? Series devolution at its finest..... February 14, 2008
By D3Jr
Format:DVD
Where to start. I'll start by saying I have rarely been more disappointed in a series as I am with the 3rd season of The L Word. I really enjoyed the 1st and 2nd seasons, and how miserably off course this series has strayed is hard to fathom, because the first couple seasons do not remotely resemble the train wreck that is the 3rd season of this series.

Was there a writers' strike during this season, because the writing, casting, and character development were absolutely horrid. Amateurish, at best. Why, oh why, the writers did what they did during this season is something for which I just don't think there is a logical answer. For example, the Billie Blaikie character is beyond annoying. Not only is this character totally irritating, but he's useless in terms of the story line. A complete and utter bore, and why the writers would decide to infuse this Jar Jar Binks-like personality into The L Word world is beyond me.

Moira/Max. Need I say anything more? Pairing this character with Jenny made no sense. Absolutely no sense. Jenny is devoloping her identity with her newly found orientation, and what do the writers decide to do? Pair Jenny with a woman who wants to become a man. Can they butcher what could otherwise be a potentially great character (Jenny) any further? Just how idiotically confusing do they want to make this character, anyway. I'm sorry, Moira/Max didn't fit in this show and I found her/his character a needless distraction, particularly considering the obvious lack of chemistry with Jenny.

Let's not forget about Angus. Could the writers have found a more dull character this side of the Milky Way? Ohhhhhh no, not just dull. Goofy, too. If they would have limited his role to babysitting Bette and Tina's baby, I would not be so upset.
