L Word, The – Season 6 – Final
Showtime’s drama The L Word aired its last episode weeks ago, but what has the show left? The season was pretty messy, as it introduced a new storyline in 3/4 of a season (eight episodes instead of the usual 12 or 13) and it never wrapped anything up.
You could watch the first episode followed by the series finale, and nothing would have happened. Jenny dies… accident? Or did someone murder her? Who cares! You won’t know… ever. Bette suspected of cheating… again!? What happens? Who cares! Did Tasha and Jamie get it on? Wouldn’t you like to know. One thing you do find out, Shane and Jenny get together… but you didn’t need to watch for that, right? It’s all over the licking promo. However, I must admit that everyone finding out about it was pretty hilarious.
A highlight? The L Word Season 6 looks pretty damn fantastic. Cinematography and lighting improved as the show regressed, and it lost the indie low budget feel it had in its first season. Did the budget shift from the writing staff to buy better lenses and lights? I’m the only one caring about that, right?
