Product Description

THE L WORD Season 4 picks up with the women wrestling with issues close to their hearts. As with previous seasons, old demons rear their ugly heads and a host of new characters are brought into their fold, offering them access to a broader community with diverse issues. THE L WORD® stars Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey, Laurel Holloman, Mia Kirshner, Katherine Moennig, Dallas Roberts, Daniela Sea, Rachel Shelley, and Pam Grier. Newest additions to the cast include Cybill Shepherd, Marlee Matlin, Janina Gavankar and Rose Rollins. Special guest stars are Rosanna Arquette, Eric Roberts, Bruce Davison, Kristanna Loken and Jane Lynch. This season, the war in Iraq becomes an integral part of Alice's (Hailey) life as she struggles to move on after the death of Dana; Helena (Shelley) tries to find financial independence and come to terms with leaving behind a world of privilege; Phyllis Kroll (Shepherd) -- who takes the courageous plunge late in life to come out of the closet -- risking everything that has defined her life up to now; and, Bette (Beals) has to deal with Jodi Lerner (Matlin), a woman who confronts her head-on about her Type-A personality.


If the third season was marked by transitions, The L Word's fourth concerns growing up--or trying to, at any rate. Shane (Katherine Moennig) becomes her brother Shay's guardian, Bette (Jennifer Beals) and Tina (Laurel Holloman) stop fighting over their daughter Angelica, and Bette's new boss, Phyllis (a very game Cybill Shepherd), decides it's time to embrace her true nature. So, after 25 years of marriage (Bruce Davison plays her husband), Chancellor Kroll comes out of the closet--and sets her sights on Alice (Leisha Hailey). For all the inclusiveness, Max (Daniela Sea), still remains on the margins. Dumped by Jenny (Mia Kirshner) the year before, Max continues to share her apartment while acclimating to life as a man.

For those who felt season three was too dark, four offers a welcome corrective. There's still plenty of angst--Jenny's memoir meets with a few negative notices (Heather Matarazzo's journalist pens the harshest critique) and Helena (Rachel Shelley) learns to live without Mommy's money--but there are plenty of moving moments to compensate (most revolving around Shane and Shay). New additions also arrive to shake things up, like Marlee Matlin as an artist who helps Bette to broaden her horizons, Kristanna Loken as a single mother with a yen for Shane, and Rose Rollins as an Iraq War veteran with whom Alice has a tryst (leading to a well intentioned, if heavy-handed message about how even liberals should support the troops). As in seasons past, the directorial line-up impresses as much as the acting talent, and includes Oscar winner Marleen Gorris (Antonia's Line) and playwright Moisés Kaufman (The Laramie Project). Since creator Ilene Chaiken makes most special features, like deleted scenes, available online, this set offers few extras, other than biographies, a photo gallery, and episodes of The Tudors and Californication. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Hello, First off I'm a straight guy, male, ect... and will stay that way. I'll be honest, I'm a in the military serving in the Middle East. I ordered the first season thinking mostly about the possible sex and nude scenes I would find, as explicit porn is not exactly allowed where I am. I found what I wanted, but what I really didn't expect was how into the show I would get. I really find this show to be one of the best written and intriguing shows that I've come across. I give the show 5 stars for its evenly mixed comedy, romance, and drama. I also think that this show shines light for acceptance of the gay/lesbian lifestyle and helps others understand that yes homosexual's are actually people as well. I have already watched the 2nd and 3rd season and have pre-ordered the 4th. I think that this show is awesome and is well worth the money to watch it. I also really enjoyed the beginnings of each episode with a something that happened in the past that directly relates to the episode. Also I love the chart and how it shows how everyone is connected. I'm a big fan of Jewel and I think it reflects the "Pieces of You" song extremely well; and how your actions can affect the people around you. Again awesome show and I would recommend it to anyone from all walks of life.

Being a UK viewer of this hot potato made it extremely frustrating to find out that Living TV ran this season wihout any warning at all so I missed it but all hope was not lost and Amazon came to my rescue!

I'm on Disc three of the 5 Disc boxset and ladies it doesn't dissapoint. This programme just seems to get better and better with each season.
The new additions to the cast, JANINA GAVANKAR / EVA 'PAPI' TORRES, set to give Shane a run for her money as the new lethario in town turning even the straightest of heads!,
MARLEE MATLIN / JODI LERNER, Bette's new love interest is making her own mark on our beloved Artist with some heart wrenching storylines.
ROSE ROLLINS / TASHA, This mean and moody character I think will come into her own next season but I applaud the writers for introducing a character like Tash that deals with our girls in the Armed forces.
CYBILL SHEPHERD / PHYLLIS KROLL, I was a little skeptical when I heard she was joing the cast this year but her character really works and is very entertaining, it also deals with coming out in the later years, which is good for us older lasses!

This Seasson sees many changes to the characters we already know and love.
Look out for the sexy DANIELA SEA / MAX SWEENEY storyline. I wasn't sure about Max last year and was finding it hard to connect with him but this season has seen me doing a complete Uturn and looking forward to seeing how this character will develop further.
KATHERINE MOENNIG/ SHANE has not had the best of luck of late and we do feel sorry for her even though she's brought a lot on herself but this season we see a new side of Shane with a storyline that rips your heart out and stamps all over it..

I just got done watching the first episode of season 4 off the Unbox Video Downloads and I'm definitely hooked already... great storyline so far and as a person who saw seasons 1-3 on DVD during my deployment I would stay up late just to get to the end, and I think I may just be downloading the rest of the episodes before this season comes out on DVD, I'm that impatient!

It truly is a great series, despite the glamorous and beautiful people with glamorous and beautiful jobs... it's just fun to watch and do a little wishful thinking... even as a straight person I was so fascinated and intrigued, I absolutely love this series. I have nothing but positive things to say, and I may not be knowledgeable about the lesbian community to have my own facts 100% valid, but I thought this was great exposure for someone like myself who never knew a thing about it, and it's just beautiful. Although I admit, I do miss Dana, but bringing back Marina was a definite surprise!

I'am a straight womand and I love this series. The 4th is my favorite season from the L Word, because it is the funniest. The basketball tournament episode ceacked me up. My only critique of the series is that there is no need for the super sexual explicit scenes, because the writing is so good and the actresses are so good that there is really no need. You have to leave something to the imagination.

I have to address Jabber's comments above. I feel sad for you. It's this kind of uneducated close minded thinking that makes the world a little bit darker. Your mean spirited stereotypical comments only serve to try to make yourself feel better at the expense of people you don't even know. Your bigotry will likely add pain to other's lives as you perpetuate prejudice, discrimination & intolerance. That's not a legacy to be proud of. In the end it's you that I feel sorry for.

That being said here's what you really might want to know: This was a great season... much more upbeat than the previous season. The characters grow on you. Alice just gets better with each season (is she a cutie or what??)!

The LWord is a fun show!...but if you are looking for stereotypical butch lesbians you might want to keep on looking. This a TV show and the people are beautiful & glamorous. (If you check out other TV shows you may be shocked to find quite a few other beautiful & glamorous cops, housewives, doctors, detectives... and so on. It's part of our American culture.) BUT... I for one am not offended by beautiful & glamorous lesbians!!

So... my suggestion is buy this season and ENJOY!
