February 12, 2020
The biggest problem for Generation Q is the writing. The superficial storytelling isn't very interesting in a world with far better LGBTQ representation.
February 5, 2020
Its mood-swings between soap and self-absorption make it pretty entertaining.

The L Word has always been a little bit naff, but in this new iteration, that naffness feels like a matter of pride.

February 5, 2020
It's all as sleek, soapy and slightly ridiculous as before.

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.

Beals, Hailey, and Moening all clearly love their characters and slip into them with ease and the wisdom of living with them for an entire decade.
January 2, 2020
The new series is glossy, sexy, and soapie.
December 20, 2019
LGBTQ classic gets a solid reboot, sex and drama remain.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 18, 2019
The L Word is a welcomed reboot amongst a sea of unwanted ones.
December 18, 2019
There are a number of scenes reminiscent of similar scenarios in the original series, but this time they're depicted with tenderness and joy, rather than the old pervasive sense of shame.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.2/5
December 17, 2019
It isn't just the original characters that are outdated-it's the entire premise...
December 10, 2019
We're hoping the stiltedness smooths out and maybe the focus turns to the younger set eventually.
December 10, 2019
More diverse, more attuned to the times, "Generation Q" is a refreshing return to a past gem.
December 9, 2019
Much of the time The L Word: Generation Q feels like two glee-deficient series slapped into the same pair of pants, but sadly, left me with little desire to revisit The L Word or invite Generation Q over for a hang.
December 9, 2019
The new characters are fun, too, but my favorite scenes on The L Word have always been the ones with the women talking as friends.
December 9, 2019
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.

December 9, 2019
In an age of greater integration and acceptance, there's still a lot to be said for carving out an exclusive space on television for queer women and trans people. Generation Q might not necessarily be breaking new ground, but it is staking a claim.
December 9, 2019
Fresh-faced all these characters may be, but they all seem to be from the cookie-cutter mold of ambition streaked with idealism and sexual uncertainty.
December 6, 2019
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.
December 6, 2019
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.
