The ladies are back for the final season of The L Word and things have gotten a little crazy... or rather crazier. The beginning of the sixth season starts off with a bang as Lucy Lawless guest stars as a detective working on the case of who killed Jenny Schecter (Mia Kirshner). The entire sixth season will revolve around the mystery. Or rather, we know Jenny‘s dead, but we don‘t know who killed her as we flashback three months to the wrap party of Lez Girls. The storyline continues from there as viewers are tantalized and confused as various characters continue to threaten Jenny‘s life. Showtime has even set up a fantasy league where you get points each episode if the characters you picked threaten Jenny.As I have seen the first four episodes of this season, I‘ll tell you that it‘s going to be a good one. Red herrings are everywhere and I honestly still have no clue who killed Jenny. Anyways, check out the season six premiere below and be sure to let us know what you think. Read more »
Today the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation released its nominees for the 20th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. Aside from the usual television nominees like The L Word and Ugly Betty, there was one atypical nominee: Supernatural.The GLAAD Media Awards have a special category for an individual episode of a show that doesn‘t feature a regular gay character. Supernatural was nominated for “Ghostfacers,” the faux reality TV series episode that featured intern Corbett (current 90210 jock Dustin Milligan) who had a gay infatuation with Ed, resulting in the classic line, “Ed, you have to go be gay for that poor dead intern.” Read more »
The L Word kicked off its sixth and final season with a murder mystery that paved the way for a major story arc that would play out the rest of the season. Jenny was found dead and because of this, the lives of everyone around her are turned upside down, especially since they are also suspects.  Of course, viewers didn‘t find out who killed Jenny in the premiere episode.  Instead, the series will be featuring a lot of flashbacks of the months leading up to the murder so viewers can put the pieces together.Last time we saw The L Word, Bette (Jennifer Beals) encountered an old college friend which made Tina (Laurel Holloman) question who much she trusts her partner while the revenge-seeking Jodi continued to frustrate Bette.  Max (Daniela Sea), on the other hand, received the most disappointing news after learning that she‘s four months pregnant. Read more »
Previously on The L Word, Tina (Laurel Holloman) got blamed for the missing movie negatives due to her frustration over the film‘s new ending.  Though she eventually suspected that Jenny (Mia Kirshner) stole them, Jenny denied it and proved that she‘s not allowed on studio grounds anymore.  Phyllis (Cybill Shepherd) let Bette (Jennifer Beals) in on a secret, and Kit (Pam Grier) and Helena‘s (Rachel Shelley) new club opened. But the biggest story of the night was the budding romance between Jenny and Shane (Katherine Moennig).Tonight‘s episode called “Leaving Los Angeles” finds Shane and Jenny still melting over each other.  The question is: how long will it last?  It seems that Jenny wants Shane to do away with past associations and if Shane doesn‘t live up to Jenny‘s expectations, then the relationship is likely to end quickly. Read more »
