I personally think the show is ok, not bad, but better than most crap these days. They seem to be dealing with too much relationship crap for my liking, not enough sex.

I heard that was a complaint in previous seasons, not enough action.

Anyone else care to share their thoughts?

Keep in mind we just finished season 3 in Aus, here's hoping we get more action.

Season 3 hasn't aired in Australia yet, that was Season 2. And quality tv? You make me laugh. It has hot lesbians getting naked regularly, that's about all it's got going for it. You take away the explicit content and the lesbians, it's just your typical average drama crap.

And that isn't enough to make a quality show   confused

I haven't seen it so I have no idea if it is any good or not  tongue

The L Word... is just okay.  To be honest, I don't think it's that well written.  The relationships are presented just like all heterosexual relationships are presented on television- ridiculously dramatic and unrealistic. It's nice to see networks being more open to LGBT programming, but they are modeling it around shows about heterosexual relationships, and (as mentioned) aiming the programming at horny teenage boys. While I watch it sometimes, I wouldn't say it's "quality TV."

Since when were these two things mutually exclusive?

But seriously, as Beamer said, it isn't really that good a show.

Yeah I didnt really mean quality TV, because it's not. Something has to be good to stay on for (i think its up to 4 seasons now) that long. It cant be the lesbians dragging it along.. so its hot lesbians *ahem* or.... ??

Being a big fan of lesbians and all, it's sad for me to say that I do NOT think this show is quality tv. The stories aren't that good, and to be honest, they do a poor job at portraying lesbians  wink

I remember hearing commercials for this on the radio. It said, "It's like Sex and the City, if [insert SATC names here] had sex with each other." So, yeah, definitely perv factor.

You have just as much of a chance with lesbians from a TV show as you do with any of the other women that you see on television: none.

I thought he was referring to the fact that nobody has a chance with a fictional character (just because they're playing lesbians doesn't mean they ARE lesbians)...

... But no, you don't. And you never did. And you never will.

Ah, yeah I know they're probably not really lesbians. Just, great actors. *tries to hold back laughter*

I read that Cybill Shepard's going to be on the show as a mom who's confused about her sexuality. *shudders*

She is, and no one wants to see that.
Oh, and as a lesbian, (which Showtime somehow convinced themselves is the demographic of The L Word) I think it's horrible. If I want a show about women in complicated relationships with partial nudity, I'll watch Sex and The City. Better writing, better actors.

Sugar Rush is not that bad because they don't show nudity in it. plus they won't make the sex scenes good too far like L word

*Blood oozing out his chest, alias_007 starts to move towards the remote detonator. Spawn_3005 kicked the gun across the floor.

"Time to die Alias," he said.

His mind racing, alias_007 threw all his might towards the remote. Spawn took the machete in his hand again. Spawn thrust the machete into the air, preparing to end alias_007's life. Suddenly, a tv crackled to life.

"Look!"

The L Word was starting. Spawn couldn't bring himself to look away, the hot lesbians were distracting him from his mission. With Spawn now 'pre-occupied', alias_007 crawled over to the remote. The bomb was implanted in the book alias_007 had given Spawn, "How To Make A Funny Quote On PEEL", because he obviously needed help on his comedy. He grabbed the remote with his hand, opened the detonator and held his finger over the button.

"Hey Spawn," he cried out.
"Have a good life." Spawn turned around.
"Wait!! Im nearly done!!"

BOOM!!!!*

*alias_007 bends down towards Spawn. His body is charred and black. Looking around the room, alias_007 realises he is alone. He starts to take off his pants.. When Nixorbo walked into the room.

"Umm.. alias_007, you better not. I'll ban you from more than PEEL for that."*

1. You're not going to get banned, but man, you're making yourselves look like dickheads.

2. That was not in the slightest bit funny at all.

3. Shut the fuck up.
