‘The L Word’: Guess Who Makes a Sex Tape
With so many new series popping up on streaming services and DVD, it gets harder and harder to keep up with new shows, much less the all-time classics. With TV Club 10 , we point you toward the 10 episodes that best represent a TV series, classic or modern. These are not meant to be the 10 best episodes, but rather the 10 most representative episodes. When The L Word premiered on Showtime in , it was the first show ever centered on an ensemble of queer women. The show was praised for its inclusion of mostly lesbian, gay, and queer characters, but it was simultaneously criticized for its main cast of beautiful, thin, mostly white, and mostly femme cis-women. The L Word lives in a very narrow neighborhood of the diverse world of queer women, and because it was the only show explicitly about lesbians, there was a tendency for viewers to expect it to represent all lesbians and a broad spectrum of queer culture.

The L Word never shied away from nudity or sex. The series, about a group of lesbians living and loving in Los Angeles, was bold and frank in its portrayal of love scenes. As it turns out, the cast and crew took these very seriously.
