Sunday, June 5, 2011: The Real L Word

The Real L Word returns for its second season tonight on Showtime -- this time around with a slew of new faces (only Whitney returns from Season 1). While it's a little strange that Showtime just did away with the Season 1 cast -- who were in the middle of some pretty big storylines -- this season promises more drama than the first. The poster, along with (I kid you not) a picture of the girls covered in mud and not much else, tells us, "This time, they're getting dirty."

It just feels cheap already. Even more so than the Season 1 poster, this Season 2 poster isn't advertising a timely and enlightening (which it has the potential to be) reality show about lesbians, it's advertising a reality show about how guys in college like to imagine lesbians. Then again, they have to get viewers somehow. But the promo seems to be going in the right direction -- some cast members are thinking about sex, obviously (it's a reality show) but others babies, long-term relationships, one just recently came out... and it's a more diverse group than Season 1. I'll be watching, but my expectations are far from high.

The Real L Word premieres at 10 PM on Showtime.
