LAist Watches: The L Word
The L Word for this week's episode should have been "Learning Curve" because everyone learned something new:Bette learned that Tina has learned a few new tricks;
Helena learned that Tina has learned a few new tricks;
Shane learned that she's got something special, afterall;
Mark learned that Carmen's had an ulterior motive;
Jenny learned that Mark holds the key to many secrets;
Dana learned that strap-ons come in all shapes and sizes;
Kit learned that Ivan isn't what he seemed;
and LAist learned that this show has potential.
Jenny's storyline with the homophobic actor, Burr, moved us. We credit Tony Goldwyn's winning portrayal as Burr and strong writing by David Stenn and the producers. Goldwyn also directed this EP and his experience shows. For the first time in a long time, the show's pacing and imagery enhanced the intimacy of the acting and dialogue.
