The L Word

The L Word


Bette always looked like she was about to cry.

This long-running Showtime series features intertwined stories about the lives and loves of a group of lesbians and bisexuals in Los Angeles. The characters date, get into committed relationships, consider having families, hook up, break up, question their sexuality, stay in the closet, come out or sleep around — sometimes all of the above.

The L Word was the kind of show you kept watching, hoping it would get better, and it never did.

Notable Queer-Centric Episodes

Tracy: IMO there is only one good (not just not bad, but good) episode of the L Word.

  • Season 4, Episode 6 – “Luck be a Lady” This one was directed by Angela Robinson (D.E.B.S, Girltrash) and she did a great job. Fast paced with split screens and a bonus of Guestbians: Kristanna Loken and Heather Matarazzo.
