The L Word Ends… Sort of


We’d love to share some insightful and pithy comments about the series finale of The L Word, Showtime’s lesbian drama and express rage and confusion that the creators chose to end the series without answering the question ‘Who killed Jenny Schecter?’, but we stopped watching the show years ago. Instead, we offer you some of the angry comments about the finale offered up by Queerty’s 1000+ fake friends on Facebook.

“I can’t believe this was the same show that debuted six years ago. When it debuted, it was smart and sexy and well written.

I honestly feel like the writers started off this season saying, “hey, I heard the writers on GREY’S ANATOMY hated Katherine Heigel, so they stuck her with a deer and having sex with a ghost. Since we hate OUR ENTIRE CAST, let’s write a who killed Jenny Schecter arc and have the lamest reveal in the history of television.” Then they raised their green tea lattes and said, “cheers to us!”

Lucy Lawless should fire her agent.”

“It’s hard for scripted lesbian drama to top real-life lesbian drama.”

“What a lame ending….or nonending”

“After all that this series has done and marks its made on history…this is the ending. We still don’t know what happened to Jenny. Too me what I got was everyone had a hand in her death and are all keeping in hush. On the fun tv side maybe she tripped walking her dog and she tripped hit her head and fell in.LOL! I think the Sopranos gave us a better ending yet this show was MUCH more profound…”

Fortunately (or not, depending on your perspective), The L Word continues on in more ways than just as a constantly airing rerun on Logo. The creators of the show are planning a spin-off called The Farm, starring Leisha Hailey, who plays Alice on The L Word and would be about that character in prison after being convicted of Jenny’s murder, but that doesn’t mean she did it, of course. In any event, goodbye forever The L Word! You were a groundbreaking show and by all accounts marginally less ludicrous than Showtime’s version of Queer as Folk. You’ll be missed– by someone, I’m sure.
