Reading The L Word: Outing Contemporary Television
Kim Akass, Janet McCabe
I.B.Tauris, Apr 4, 2006 - Performing Arts - 247 pages
As America's first television series about lesbians, The L Word captured national attention when it debuted in 2004, and has continued to make headlines since. The Showtime cable drama about a group of lesbian and bisexual friends in Los Angeles challenges traditional notions of relationships, gender, and sex, and has generated both controversy and devotion within the lesbian community. Contributors write on how the show deals with topics like third-wave feminism, bisexuality, race, glamor, sex, relationships, music, as well as how the series has been marketed to and received by viewers. Also included are interviews with key contributors to the show itself. Throughout, the essays address both humorously and analytically what The L Word says about lesbians--and what lesbians say about The L Word.

Loved it. Just wish there was a follow-up beyond season 2. Shane and Ivan are interesting examples of female masculinity, but I want to read about Max/Moira. Read full review

Excellent critical study of the first two seasons of the popular television series the LWord. The collection of essays made the familiar characters come to life, and drew my attention beneath my often superficial glance. Highly recommended. Read full review
