NOTE: This review discusses tonight’s L-Word season finale.
The last credits have rolled and the second season of the popular Showtime television show, The L-Word, is now complete. I’ve been a fan of the show since before the first episode aired a year and a half ago. I watched each and every episode this season, and I have to say I might be a little disappointed on the way things went down in the second half of this season. This season started off with a bang, and then things went strange about a month ago.
The story lines just went screwy, and at the end of some episodes I was left wondering where the writer’s were going with the show. I still love the show, and the characters, but the show went in a direction I wasn’t expecting. I think things went wacky with the starting of the Mark and camera storyline. Mark moved in with Shane and Jenny, and then proceeded to put up cameras in the house secretly taping every single moment of their lives.
When Jenny discovers the cameras, she slowly begins to lose it, and she finally has her rock bottom breakdown in the season’s final episode, which aired earlier tonight. There was so much happening, and so much that could have been handled differently.
In my opinion, the writers ignored what could have been a very wonderful storyline early on in the season with Kit and Ivan. Many fans were following this beginning relationship, and then Kit sees Ivan’s fake cock, and it is all over. Only to be further ruined by Ivan’s admission later in the season that he was indeed in a long term relationship the whole time he was going after Kit. I call she a he because that it was he wanted to be seen as. So much more could have been there.
This show has some fairly good writers, but this season finale was lacking in some parts. I have seen so many fans in the last few hours express their disappointment in how the show ended its year. It will be back for a third season next year, and we have to hope the show returns to its former glory of season one and the first half of season two.Powered by Sidelines
