"I would have gave it 5 stars but I was really disappointed at the quality of the video. 4 one hour episodes on a single layer disc? The compression artifacts are really bad on some parts. It's obvious that the manufacture was not interested in putting out a quality product. It's actually a disgrace to the DVD format."

"I can honestly say that i've watched the entire series at least 6 or more times.. I buy alot of series, but this has to be the best one i've ever bought.. I've completely worn out the disks, since i've bought the series individually.. So now i'm buying the entire series pack.. There are so many causes and issues brought up in this show and go further than what you would see on any other show or the news and I think that is part of what makes it wonderful.. You'll fall in love with the characters and wish that someone out there would make another show just as strong and deep as this one.."
The Best Lesbian Series Ever
Ruth M. Sudul | Warren, PA USA | 10/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The L Word series is about the lives, loves and friendships of a group of lesbians living in Los Angeles. The casting is superb: Jennifer Beals (Bette), Erin Daniels (Dana), Leisha Hailey (Alice), Laurel Holloman (Tina), Mia Kirshner (Jenny Schecter), Katherine Moennig (Shane), Pam Grier (Kit), Rachel Shelley (Helena) and Daniela Sea (Max), only to name a few. In addition, there are guest appearances by Cybill Shepherd, Gloria Steinem, Ossie Davis, Billie Jean King and Snoop Dog. Every element in the series is first class: the photography, scenery, costumes and story lines. The music is among the best I've heard in any series. I never realized there were so many talented women artists. Plus there are performances by many well known artists, including Heart.
The series deals with a number of serious gay issues: coming out, gay adoption & parenting, coming out to parents, gays in the military and trangendering from female to male. Plus it puts a lesbian perspective on issues common to us all: love, relationships, monogamy, promiscuity, breast cancer and job discrimination. It includes women from all age groups: from their early twenties to their mid-fifties. I was pretty naive about transgenders and was quite touched by Max's struggles as she/he goes through the transition process. Dana's struggle with breast cancer is absolutely heart wrenching. When Phyllis (Cybill Shepherd) comes out as a lesbian after twenty years of marriage the story is both touching and hilarious. There is a lighter side: The Gay Pride Parade, The Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender festivities at the 11th Annual Women's Event in New York and when the gang goes on an Olivia Cruise it made me want to immediately jump on the boat and ride away into lesbian heaven.
The show does not portray your typical butch-femme stereotypes. Instead you have gorgeous lesbians dressed in exquisite clothes. The lingerie only adds to the sexiness. The love scenes are not just hot, they are sizzling. Most lesbian love scenes are done by straight women and appear fake and sometimes look downright painful. Not here! The kissing, touching and simulated sex are absolute erotic. Shane, who is known for her promiscuity, steams up the screen with her seduction of an array of women.
The only disappointment is the ending of the series. It leaves more questions than answers. Who really killed Jenny Schecter? It could be that way because they are leaving the series open to a sequel.
The cost of the series may seem expensive, but consider that you are getting a total of 81 episodes. Plus each season includes a number of bonus features. This is a series you will watch over and over and is well worth the money.
