You Wrote It. Now See It!

Some of you might remember a little contest OurChart sponsored with FanLib last summer when The L Word team was still hard at work filming Season 5. We challenged you to imagine a scene from Seasons 1 or 2 of The L Word as a scene from Jenny's movie, "Lez Girls". Now that you've seen the teasers in episodes 501 and 502, you probably understand where we were going with this.

Interview with...

Leisha Hailey and Kate Moennig

When recently visited the set of The L Word in Los Angeles to interview Leisha Hailey and Kate Moennig, it was a typically scorching October day. The cast and crew (many of them women, unlike on many film and television sets) observed as Moennig, Hailey, Laurel Holloman and Mia Kirshner rehearsed a short exterior scene in the tony neighborhood of West Hollywood before shooting.

I had met Kirshner earlier, on my ride to the set. And by "met" I mean that I tripped as I stepped into the van, nearly tumbling into her lap, prompting her to sweetly ask, "Are you OK?" Kirshner is even more distractingly beautiful in real life than on the show, so I even fumbled my "Yes, thank you" in response. My glamorous on-location interview was off to a great start.

[+] "L Word" Preview: Spoiler Alert...

[+] Could this be the last word for 'The L Word'?

Cybill Shepherd and daughter talk about being co-stars

By Missy, CBB Writer

Working side-by-side on the set of The L Word with her mom Cybill Shepherd has been an eye-opening experience for Clementine Ford, in more ways than one. The 28-year-old says that although she and Cybil are close, she's trying to avoid witnessing Cybill's lesbian love scenes on the show. Telling Entertainment Tonight that she sometimes watches with her eyes closed, Clementine says,

There are certain things you don't want to see...I'll look anywhere around but at the TV.

The Return Of The L Word: Sunday

by Katelyn/

The L Word's coming back on Sunday, 9pm on Showtime! This means weekly installments of nothing but gloriously bad decisions, lesbian sex both complicated and primal, stylishly coiffed men, women, and those who have yet to make up their minds, and -- possibly our favorite part--endless cups of coffee, gossip, and star guest performances at (all-purpose meeting point) The Planet.

If you haven't been watching, get thee to the video store and rent thee some Season One dvds. Some of our favorite storylines: Bette and Tina might possibly be getting back together (but only if Tina decides she wants to be a lesbian again after a hetero interlude, and only if Bette dumps the deaf artist she's dating now). Alice, an intrepid columnist for LA Weekly and webmaster for The Chart (a lesbian version of Myspace), is dating a soldier girl. Shane, androgynous, perpetually sexually-active, hairdresser Shane, had informal custody of her much younger half-brother for awhile and we all thought she might finally be growing up; probably not, though.

Predictions for Season Five: Shane will not grow up (but we will continue to love her best). Jenny will manipulate everyone and everything around her, because she has no soul. Kit, the alcoholic, will relapse... again. Betty, the show's girl rock band, will continue to weird us out. Bette and Tina will reunite (it's inevitable!). And finally, Seattlest will drink too many whiskey blood-orange sodas while we revel in someone else's stylized and sleekly produced drama. Welcome back, L Word!

PS: The Human Rights Campaign and Showtime are hosting a Season Five Premiere Party at Cinerama downtown, from 2:30 to 6pm (all-ages, but there's a 21+ after-party). You wouldn't be able to drink *during* the show, but it could be super fun to see it on the big screen.

Worthy shows coming to cable, broadcast TV

by Charlie McCollum

Entering its fifth season (9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime), "The L Word" can be overblown, unfocused and repetitive in its storytelling. But when it puts the spotlight on its core characters - particularly those played by Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey and Laurel Holloman - the drama can be effective and entertaining

The L Word Season 5 Preview

by Frank Cifaldi

Season 5 of The L Word promises more of the great stories we have grown accustomed to from this acclaimed SHOWTIME series which follows the lives of a dozen or so lesbians in Los Angeles.

As the season begins, Tasha is still in the Army and about to be shipped out to Iraq. Just outted Phyllis (Memphis's own Cybil Shepherd), is sick and tired of being tied down to Joyce and is interested in playing the field and, possibly, "U-Hauling." This, we learn, is a lesbian term for meeting someone and within a short amount of time, piling your stuff in a U-Haul and moving in with them.

The gorgeous Jenny (Mia Kirshner) has written her book, "Lez Girls," and is off to Hollywood with Tina (Laurel Holloman) to get the book made into a movie with Jenny directing. Of course, Jenny is not wild about the choice of the starlet chosen to be in her film (and the studio is saying either she takes the actress or the movie doesn't get made) as she is definitely not one to be controlled. Having had her assistant quit because of Jenny's demanding attitude, Jenny "allows" one of her adoring fans to take over as the new assistant.

Bette (the-more-gorgeous-as-she-gets -older Jennifer Beals) and Jody (Oscar Winner Marlee Matlin) are having some bumps in their relationship. Shane (Katherine Moennig) has vowed to go celibate as she is tired of all the drama that happens with relationships (of course, this is AFTER her business is burned to the ground). Helena (Rachel Shelley) is in prison and gets released after her mother (Holland Taylor in another funnier-than-hell performance) pays bail. Dear old Mom then decides to send her to Europe before her trial.

Max (Daniela Sea) is cruised by a man (Jody's interpretor) who thinks she is a guy ever since her sex change operations have begun. Max is also told that she no longer fits in with the lesbian friends she had before because she is almost complete in her transformation. Daniela Sea, the actress in the role as Max, is nothing short of remarkable in her portrayal.

Finally, Alice (the great Leisha Hailey) is surprised when Tasha makes an appearance and lets her know that she is being investigated for homosexual behaviour and may get kicked out of the Army. When two Military personnel visit Alice unexpectedly, she almost loses control while trying to keep their prying eyes away from anything that would incriminate Tasha as being her lover. Yeah, she isn't very successful at that. Pam Grier is back as Bette's sister Kit who runs the local lesbian bar called The Planet and is not very happy that there is a new bar in town called Shebar that is trying to compete as the hottest spot for lesbians in Los Angeles.

I had never seen an episode of The L Word before I got the preview discs and I am now hooked. It is one of the best dramas that is being offered on Cable. While I am sure that it must have a fanbase comprised of lesbians, you do not have to be a gay female to enjoy the storylines or the acting. Women will love it because it shows how much power a woman can have and the men will like it because it shows a pretty decent amount of flesh throughout the episodes. Be sure to catch the new season on SHOWTIME beginning in two days and I guarantee that you, too, will fall in love with these lovely ladies of Los Angeles.
