Welcome to The L Word(s), a new blog dedicated to dishing about and dissecting all things L. Yeah, OK, there are other sites out there. But I promise a few extra treats over here. Like occasional quotes you won't see anywhere else from Jennifer Beals talking about -- well, what it's like to make out with her old friend Marlee Matlin, for one thing. And from Ilene Chaiken, who'll gab about some of those sex scenes. And Kate Moennig, who's got something to say to all you Shane clones out there.
But of course, you'll have to hang out for those earth-shattering revelations. You're not going to get it all at once. Because you know, and I know, that the slow burn is much better.
I'll be giving you my take on The L Word through Season Four. (Check out my story on Season Four in the Miami Herald's Tropical LIfe section Sunday.) But this is hardly just my platform to go off on that wack job Jenny, or froth about JB, or offer some thoughts on the new Latina character Papi (Ilene, please come back to Miami and let us introduce you to some three-dimensional Latina lesbians). This is your platform, too. So come on, give up your dish, ask your questions, rant about what sucked and rave about what turned you on after each episode. And post links to your videos, or hook up a date with somebody on the blog. No cheesy soliciting for paid dates, and no stupid straight dudes (the non-stupid ones we welcome).
But otherwise, do what you like.
And know this: Ilene told me she's toying with the idea of bringing some of the cast down to Miami for a season finale party. She also said she'd check out our blog occasionally. It's up to you to seduce her. L.A. may have some hot lesbians. But Ilene, you won't know swelter until you come hang out in Miami's L World.
