Critic Reviews for The L Word Season 1

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (16)

I think this show finds its place as a dramatic substitute for Sex and the City.

Top Critic

Real, powerful and voyeuristic.

Jun 28, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Like "Queer as Folk," "The L Word" is a soap opera, although a higher caliber one. The characters are less like caricatures, and it's easier to get caught up in their predicaments.

My god it's refreshing to finally see a queer show that focuses on something other than dick.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The characterisations of The L Word affects any TV writer writing a lesbian character now.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

We must pass The L Word on to people who need its optimism, no matter how dated it will continue to seem.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It's neither distinguished nor exotic enough to break much new ground, which would seem almost a prerequisite to justify such a pay TV endeavor.

Top Critic

The L Word is silly, slight and very badly done.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Those aspects of the show that are not about lesbianism are tedious, and those that are, are predictable.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a bit too smart for its own good, trying so hard to be sexy and sassy, raunchy and risque, that it runs dangerously close to turning its characters into ciphers: all glib talk and good looks.
