What I'm Watching: The L Word

The L Word: Season 5, Episode 2 "Look Out, Here They Come!" (B+)

Alright, I am officially down with this show. Everything has really come back into focus and the quality of this show seems to be back, at least for the moment. Rose Rollins is quickly shaping up to be this season's MVP for her portrayal of Tasha, a character who when first introduced bore a striking resemblance to Helena's formerly silent and butch cellmate. Fortunately, both each have a story now which is compelling and interesting. I particularly loved Dusty's reaction to Helena thinking she was a murderer - "Tax fraud!" Shane is back to her old ways, getting with three different women from the same family at a wedding (though wisely spurning the bride). Tina really does need to get a date sometime soon. Otherwise, things seem pretty good here. And I did enjoy that opening scene with Tom liking Max.
