Critic Reviews for The L Word Season 6

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

The L Word, however, is regressing into a petulant adolescence.

Top Critic

Jenny Schecter, a character so annoying she eventually - via a spectacularly awful, shark-jumping dream sequence - became the undoing of the whole show.

Top Critic

The finale was every bit as awful as the entire season, and there's no way to cover the whole, ugly mess.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

I can't say I expected anything less ludicrous than the series' final minutes.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

But like most of the six seasons of The L Word, too much was not enough.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

In its 6th season The L Word has decided to become Law & Order, which actually makes complete sense considering that the show is largely written by a Dustbuster.

Jun 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Although The L Word's writing over the years has been uneven at best, outlandish at worst, the series should be commended for raising tricky questions about race, gender, and orientation.

Apr 1, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

It has no business being on anyone's television.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

It's too bad the producers waste the series' final episodes with Jenny at the center. The story arc makes Jenny even more irritating than she was before.

Mar 19, 2019 | Full Review…

The L Word was the only show this season that let me step into some kind of lesbian life, even if it was fake.

Audience Reviews for The L Word: Season 6

  • Jul 29, 2019
    Giving three stars for one simple reason, the nostalgia. The L word is undeniably a staple in the Lesbian/Bi culture. That being said, season 6 is a poor reflection of a massive movement in television. It plot was allowed to run away with grand intentions, but poor execution. Jenny was not only a thorn in the side of every character on the show, but the show as a whole. If there was ever a prime example of how to make an unlikable character go too far and lose its purpose, Jenny would be just that example.
