4.0 out of 5 stars more a fantasy than reality?, July 2, 2005
This review is from: The L Word: Season 2 (DVD)
This season delves more deeply into the lives of the L.A framily. Can't really put my finger on what I feel about this second season. It was more serious than the first, which in a way is a good thing (not all lesbians have fun ALL of the time lol) but also it kind of took something away. The spirit, the 'network' if you will. The friends have kind of gone seperate ways (Shane and Jenny are practically best buds, which I LOVE by the way) Alice and Dana become lovers, Bette is on her own for the most part, which I'm glad of, and Tina is with THE biggest div ever lol.

I liked the season, loved it infact, but I was expecting more I think. Season 1 was so huge, so awesome, I was hoping that the same level of greatness would be carried through. I think this hasn't been realised in season 2.

The success of the show may have clouded people's judgement. It's now being written 'trendily' for trends sake, because they knew they got it down perfectly in season one, only then they weren't trying to impress. It was real then, natural. Now it seems somewhat 'performed' for the audience, giving them what they want and trying to get the gay world right out there. Slighty tright and self apreciating.

That makes me sound like I don't like the show anymore, which is far from the truth. I do love it, I just think that the writers should be careful not to go overboard. It's sink or swim now. Take it slow, built on relationships. At the end of the gay....sorry, day (laughs), it seems they are trying to sell tickets into the big gay club that is the world; showing us the fashions, the trends, the life...but not the people living it. Come down a peg or too, and they'll be fine.

P.S Shane and Jenny need to end up together, I'm serious.

Shane and Jenny together is gross its like having sex with your cousin. You probably shouldn't and I hope you don't. Shane and Carmen should have gotten married and had babies. The End.
