Yes, I want to write about The L Word, only I am even more woefully behind than ever. AfterEllen is the first blog to cover these TV spectacles, and I am the very last. Just finished Season 3 this week so bear with me.
Just to remind you where Season 3 ends, Dana has died, Shane has left Carmen alone at the altar, post-menopausal Kit is pregnant, and Helena has been cut off from her wealthy family. Some rough stuff, right?
With characters in, characters out, have your impressions changed? Who's irritating? Who's sexy? Who would be your friend? What do you think about Max and the trans narrative? Were you surprised that Shane flew the coop?
Here are a few randoms from yours truly. Alice is the ultimate lesbian friend. She's funny, smart, loyal, gossipy, and cute. For some reason, I never had a clear sense of Carmen. She doesn't stand out for me. On the DVD bonus footage, a bunch of women said Carmen was there favorite character, so I thought that was interesting. As you may recall, Jenny has always annoyed me. She doesn't seem like a writer, and her character doesn't ring true for me. Max is interesting to me, in his lostness. I found the scenes between Dylan and Helena very hot. I'm letting my authority
issues hang out in saying this, but Helena is sexy as was Marina in Season 1. Maybe I'm just a sucker for foreign accents?
So tell me your thoughts! And don't worry about spoiling Season 4 for me. I can take it.
