Lesbian catch-up

One episode into The L Word and a lot of stuff is starting to make sense.

Please don’t shout at me. Coming out as a lesbian is one thing. Coming out, to other lesbians, as someone who has never watched The L Word is another. They yell. It’s terrifying. It’s like telling an environmentalist that black rhinos “had it coming, the leathery pricks”. Chairs are thrown. Well, emotional chairs perhaps.

So, over a decade late to the party, I’ve decided to give the most iconic lesbian TV event to occur within my lifetime so far (or so I’ve been told…) a chance. I should probably explain why I’m so late. It’s not a snobbery thing, I swear. Bad Girls got me through my first heartbreak. Bad Girls. The lesbian prison drama so ITV you can practically smell the writing. Also, and only semi-ironically, one of my favourite series ever. Don’t think for a second I didn’t full-on weep when Nikki and Helen finally got together.
