I am amazed at how much consensus I see our group assessment of the characters in The L Word. As some of you have realized, I am not even half-way through the first season, and most of you are halfway through the second. That said, here are the results, high school yearbook style:
Ms. Hot in Herre = Marina, hands down
Most Likely to Succeed [between those sheets] = Shane
Most Likely to Succeed [on monster.com] = Bette
She of Limited Sex Appeal = Jenny
Most Neurotic/Entertaining = Dana
Most Likely to be our Friend = Alice
I will weigh in, sumo style, with those of you who point out that Jenny is not a writer by any stretch of the imagination. As a writer myself, that portrayal is truly painful. And the dinner with her teacher, absurd! Maybe the screenwriters have confused literary writing with method acting?
I will admit that it was genuinely meaningful to me to see the whole sperm donor and insemination drama played out on television, however unrealistic it seemed. Or, if L.A. is really like that, maybe we should consider a mass migration?
