The Real L Word: Lovin’ Lesbians
Let’s talk about lesbians! I love lesbians. I know that there’s this weird unspoken understanding that for some reason gays and lesbians don’t always mix well. Something about gays liking girly girls who like men and lesbians not feeling the flaming queens…but you know what? I say get over it, people!
We’re all gay and we should work together to educate the rest of the world.
So I’ve been watching Showtime’s “The Real L Word,” a reality spin-off of its popular lesbian drama “The L Word.” I absolutely LOVED the L Word. It’s by far one of my favorite shows of all time. I like how it’s written, the way it’s shot, the acting, the weird unknown music, the insight to lesbian culture, and the characters are so solid. I love it!
Well, I wasn’t so sure how I’d feel about a reality spin-off of the show. I mean, I love The Hills and other reality shows, but I wasn’t sure how this was going to work, exactly. Specially when originally the spin-off would be a drama about one of the main characters: Alice. Well, either way, I’m actually really enjoying The Real L Word. It’s a completely different show with a different feel, mainly because it’s unscripted.
At first I was trying to pinpoint who’s who in the show, then I realized that it’s not like The L Word, these women have their own personalities. I see fusions of different L Word characters in some of the women. They’re all cool and I like all the main gals. Plus, it’s so cool that they shoot in a lot of the places where I’ve been or hang out. It’s set in LA and you see places where I have had my own memories or drama or whatever (ahem, THE ABBEY).
So I give The Real L Word a thumbs up. It’s not like The L Word, so L Word fans, please don’t turn on me. It’s a separate idea and different tone to the flow of the show, but it’s cool. So watch!
