Tv Season Info

The lives of a group of lesbian friends in L.A. make for a sexy and stylish cable drama that tackles provocative issues (such as gender confusion, prejudice and gay parenting) with wit and grace, though with an occasional tendency to resolve story arcs a bit too neatly.

Critic Reviews for The L Word: Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

The writers are more confident and directed this season, and their story lines promise to build gradually to a soap-operatic climax.

It is a deeply pleasurable thing to watch a bunch of lesbians who aren't marginal characters whose maudlin tales of coming out and familial rejection are not really our problem.

Top Critic

The L Word is clearly not for everyone, but for those willing to approach it with an open mind it's better than just OK.

March 31, 2020 | Full Review…

The L Word writers need to get closer to the pulse of current queer-women's issues, and then be willing to ride complex themes out to more fragile edges.

March 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Often The L Word seems to arrange the characters in emotional and erotic poses rather than just let them breathe.

March 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The show gives us a large and talented cast, but manages nevertheless manages to be accessible enough that even those of us who missed the first season can catch on quickly.
