Product Description

Set in the chic world of Los Angeles, this humor-laced dramatic series explores the lives of a group of lesbians, their friends, family and neighbors. The series takes a smart, sexy and fun look at the hopes, dreams and lives of these people as they deal with things like career struggles, relationships and the pressures of tying to start a family. The second season of The L Word takes off with 13 hotter-than-ever, sexy episodes filled with sizzling new characters. A must-have DVD set for the legions of fans that have purchased Season 1.


Once a series has broken new ground, where does it go from there? Showtime's The L Word, concerning the relationships of a community of lesbian Los Angelenos, turned heads with its smart, funny writing and fully realized characters. Season Two offers more of the same, with some notable guest stars and experiments in narrative and music. This season, Jenny (Mia Kirshner) fully embraces her sexuality as her ex-husband/roomie (Eric Mabius) departs and voyeuristic documentary filmmaker Mark (Eric Lively) and womanchaser Shane (Katherine Moennig) move in. Shane and Jenny struggle good-heartedly over the affections of new character Carmen (Sarah Shahi), who isn't given much to do plot-wise apart from occasionally spinning records and serving as one corner of the love triangle. Bette (Jennifer Beals) and Tina (Laurel Holloman) start the season on the rocks due to Bette's infidelity; the introduction of the one-dimensionally nasty Helena Peabody (Rachel Shelley) causes further friction between Bette and Tina while playing havoc with Bette's curatorial career. Meanwhile, Dana (Erin Daniels) and Alice (Leisha Hailey) go from being best friends to being a whole lot more, providing some of the most touching scenes of the season. Kit (Pam Grier) takes on The Planet, the seeming center of LA's lesbian universe, converting it into a nightclub where, conveniently, guest-starring bands can play.

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

Don't be fooled by the theme of this show: The L Word is so much more than some throw-away gay show. The themes are universal and should resonate with more than gay viewers.

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.

I have to admit, I started watching The L Word because I'm a guy who was channel surfing and I saw lesbians. Of course, anyone who I tell about me liking the show immediately assumes that I watch it as pornography, and that's sort of what I was looking at it as in the first place.

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.

No, season 2 isn't perfect. Many other reviewers have pointed out its flaws: the over-involvement of music group Betty and too much irritating re-use of the new theme song throughout the episodes; the one-dimensional character Helena, who it's almost impossible to believe Tina would have ever stayed with as long as she does; the repetitiveness of the Jenny flashbacks; the gets-old-quick and very unrealistic Mark sub-plot; and the loss of Marina.

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.

Season 2 of The L Word has many, many high points and just a few low points.

High Points;

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!
