Wish the show was still on at least in reruns. Yes, I have all the dvd's. The cast is great too. It was sad and distubing that Erin Daniels aka Dana was killed off the show. The shocker of the second season to show that Tine aka Laurel was prego, was great too. Real life does bump up into great story lines for shows as good as this one. Great job everyone in The L Word production.
Do you find this valuable?
