News & Interviews for The L Word: Generation Q: Season 1
The youngins don't have the same easy connection, either with each other or with the audience, a glaring misstep that is compounded by their having to share the screen with the old class.
A glossy, bighearted show that's less soapy than the original series but delivers enough secrets, sex, and secret sex to keep the stakes high.
Despite the hesitations and qualms, Generation Q is definitely an appealing sequel and it's far better than many expected. It only falters when it looks to its past instead of marching forward.
The L Word has always been a little bit naff, but in this new iteration, that naffness feels like a matter of pride.
It's all as sleek, soapy and slightly ridiculous as before.
The L Word: Generation Q does the LGBTQ+ community justice and possesses one of the most diverse, talented casts. The creators packed the show with drama and plot twists, and the story further touches upon important subjects that were previously taboo.
The biggest problem for Generation Q is the writing. The superficial storytelling isn't very interesting in a world with far better LGBTQ representation.
Its mood-swings between soap and self-absorption make it pretty entertaining.
Groundbreaking in its own right, Generation Q still struggles to integrate its original cast members into a modern show that's more inclusive of real women.
Audience Reviews for The L Word: Generation Q: Season 1
Feb 11, 2021Fantastic! We need more shows like this!!
Feb 02, 2021Disappointed. This new show is deeply different from the L word. I was looking for this precious ambiance of doubts and dreams. The Q Generation is brutal and boring, at the exact opposite of it. The new characters are tasteless and annoying. And why do we have to endure all these scenes in companies ? I don't get it.
Feb 19, 2020I was excited of this show's returning but tuned out quickly. Most of the old characters have received such good fortune and blessed lives, a mayor, talk show host, pr, and famous hair stylist, that its realism just fails for me. I would rather see them struggle for that success and even fail along the way. That would have been a better show.
Feb 01, 2020Loved the show. Loved seeing all the Original players. I wasnt a big fan of the season finale though. Felt more like part of the build up to the finale as opposed to being the finale itself,
Jan 29, 2020Very entertaining. Marja Lewis-Ryan had a difficult task with a contentious fanbase and she hit a home run.
Jan 21, 2020I watched the original L Word back in the day and was really looking forward to this reboot. It is so nice to see the original cast and the new characters are definitely growing on me. However, I might have had too high expectations. Although the acting is a bit over the top at times, it is forgivable, and get's better as the show goes on. I don't know if it's this rush to cram in everything at once with both new characters and old, which makes this reboot a bit bland. I'm rooting for the show though, and I will be watching!
Jan 20, 2020This new series is fun to watch. Give it a couple episodes because it does start off a little cheesy.
Jan 16, 2020The L Word: Generation Q is the one and only revival I've watched that kept the original core and made a cohesive story addition. The old characters, that we know and love, are older and wiser, but not that much because everyone messes up even when you're older and some of your faults are the same, but you're still wiser. Bette, Alice and Shane are way more mature, but still making mistakes. And they seem old, and yes they are, because they are the same people. The new characters are vivid and they all have something else to tell, all of them have some secret, some serious internal developing to make. And they all have some twist of problems that we live and talk about today! I love it. Thank god they already announced a seasons 2.
Jan 12, 2020Sooooo bad. Story: ridiculous. Acting; horrific; Portrayal of lesbians; yikes. If you want to watch the three best characters from the previous L word being rich and gay, fast forward through most of the story and catch them. The new Q generation characters are terrible. The trans man actor is quite possibly the worst actor I've ever seen, and there are a lot of bad actors. Don't just skip it, run away.
Jan 12, 2020So much better than the older version. We've just never had anything take its place. so important to see a diverse range of queer people on screen.
