What I’m Watching: The L Word: Generation Q (Season Premiere)

The L Word: Generation Q: Season 3, Episode 1 “Last Year” (B+)

This show has had a pretty impressive pandemic-era run, finishing season one just before it started and then delivering a second and now third season within a normal period of time. It’s interesting to see Tina brought in at this point to be a major part of the plot since the show started without her, and now that Bette has everything together and seems very serene, Tina is unsurprisingly attracted to her again. It made for a great ending to the episode when Angie walked in and was furious to find her moms kissing after she had just been dumped, and no one said things can be easy for the many, many entangled relationships on this show. Even though Alice and Nat aren’t together, Nat’s existence complicates things with Gigi and Dani as they contemplate moving in together, which may just be an excuse on Gigi’s part but likely isn’t the last we’ll hear of this. Micah proposing to Maribel also yielded unexpected results, but it’s possible that what she wants is something that he’ll be open to. Finley’s return from rehab shows just how much she’s changed, and everyone was excited about that save for Dani, who in fairness was very stressed at the moment and should have been approached by Finley at a different time if she wanted any hope of success. Tess and Shane seem to be in a very healthy place, but we know that Shane isn’t great at stability and accepting happiness, so it’s entirely possible that it’s going to be derailed pretty quickly.
