The plot has way too many holes in it. Most of the characters (Bette, Tina, Shane, Max, Jenny, Helena) seems to have weird dual, bipolar personalities. Over the seasons, at one minute you love them, at the next minute they turn around and do the most cringe-worthy things ever. At one point, I couldn't convince myself to take whatever the characters say or do seriously anymore. This is unfortunate since these are all great actors, just that the writers screwed up the stories. The main character who has the least inconsistent personality lately is probably Alice (except for her weird relationship with a straight guy who considered himself a "lesbian" (WTF) in an earlier episode). This could be one of the reasons why she is among the very few I can still bear watching.

The sex scenes are so cheesy, predictable and aren't believable, as if they're there just to attract "broader" (i.e. male) audience: when they're sad, they have sex; when they're happy, they have sex; when they're angry, the have sex; when they're confused, the have sex. This pattern is very obvious, predictable, and unrealistic. Furthermore, Max hooking up with a guy is a real joke, and a big slap in the face for transgenders and butches who are already under-, or more accurately, unrepresented.

I suspect that one reason behind the need for the writers to hook Max up with a guy is because of a pressure from some higher people behind the scene, requiring that each season must contain at least one story involving a man having sex with a main character (ugh).

The fifth season of The L Word was probably my second favorite aside from the first season. I loved Jenny's character in this season. She became even more outrageous but I thought she was funny and cute at the same time. The idea of watching them make her book into a movie was great! Because she finally got her book published and now having studios fighting over the rights to her movie...her spoiled girl act was my favorites of all. I don't want to give away any spoilers but I can't believe what Adele did! There's that saying: always watch out for the quiet ones and wow, is that true in this case. The only thing I didn't care for was having Marlie Matlin back in this season. For some reason, I thought she was leaving after the end of the fourth season. I miss Kristanna Loken, who played Shane's love interest in season 4. But Shane is Shane, as I noticed at the end of seasons 3, 4 and 5. But as a Jenny fan, I really liked this season. Even after watching a week's episode, I couldn't help watching the repeat of it, which was right after. Lot of good things were in this season but if you're a Jenny fan, I think you'll really love it!! Did I mention I liked Jenny?

I'm a huge Tibette fan!! I never seen any other actors/actresses who have the best chemistry on screen, like JB and LuH. So after all the drama, the heartache, FINALLY my favorite coupLe in the show are BACK TOGETHER! And hope this time it'll stick! Lots of Laughter this season which I Love! and much more Tibette's Love this season as well! I can't wait to own this DVD! Most importantly, can't wait for the new season, which sadly would be the Last one. I don't know what I'd do when the show ended, although there will be a spin-off, but still don't know which character. Love the L word! :)

The only "L Word" fans who could have enjoyed this season are the ones who jumped on the bandwagon with Season 5 being their first viewing, or fans who previously throught the show had too much weight and wanted to see just "more sex." Because that's all this season is. Sex. Normally on a soap opera this isn't the problem, but for those of us who watched the show for the characters, we have sorely missed them since the viewing of season 5. Nobody has learned anything from their past mistakes (Bette), many characters have suddenly regressed (Alice), and most have just completely lost the sense of who they were (Shane). When Chaiken said she was gonna start listening to the fans more, I think a few of us older fans had no idea that included demoting the show to nothing but fivalous eye candy promiscuity with such hokey and corny plots that they couldn't be saved by the few fun things that DID happen! None of the blame can befall the actors, however, who, as always, commit to everything with all they have, but as a viewer everything becomes redundant (the constant "will they or won't they" of tina and bette") and in many cases unbelivable and unrealistic (max's sudden urge to be with men). The show lost a lot of it's bite and dynamic after season 3, however season 4 had it's grace points and a lot of the characters had great storylines, this, sad to say, isn't so of season 5. And it makes me sad to think ANYONE would consider this the best season of "The L Word" yet. I will continue to watch just like one cannot tear their eyes away from a natural disaster, but I hope a show that I used to love will go out with better dignity than it's previous season.
