The L Word tv series'The L Word' follows the lives and loves of a group of lesbian friends living in Los Angeles. The main character, Jenny, is a recent graduate of the University of Chicago, who moves to Los Angeles to live with her boyfriend Tim and begin a professional writing career. Jenny's life is turned upside down when she attends a party hosted by Tim's next-door neighbors, Bette and Tina, a lesbian couple who are about to take the step into parenthood after being together for seven years.

A brief encounter at the party with Marina, the owner of the local coffeehouse, suddenly has Jenny thrust into a whole new world that makes her question her own sexual orientation. Other friends of Bette and Tina include Dana, a professional tennis player who is shy but eager to meet the right woman; Alice, a magazine writer who has a brief relationship with a self-identified "lesbian" man; and Shane, a hairstylist who can't stick to just one woman, and Kit, Bette's half sister who struggles with alcoholism.

Trivia

Scott Bairstow was originally cast as the male lead , but was replaced by Eric Mabius soon after allegations of sexual assault on a minor were made against him in 2003 (he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of second degree assault on 9 December 2003).

Although they are not displayed, all episode titles begin with the letter "L".

The opening title offers a variety of "L words" They are: - lunch - laughter - lashes - lure - legs - limber - literary - linger - lattes - life - learn - luxurious - long - looking - lap - Los Angeles - lullaby - labyrinth - lesbian - love - labels - liberty - lotion - lithe - lust - linger - lady - lickable? - libido - letting go - lips - liberal - lace - loft - lovely

The pregnancy of Tina Kennard in the show was filmed around the real-life pregnancy of actress Laurel Holloman.

Ossie Davis had a recurring role as the father of the Jennifer Beals's character. In the second season, Davis filmed scenes that showed his character becoming ill, then dying. Davis then died before his final episode was broadcast, so that episode was dedicated to him.

Shane (Katherine Moennig) is sometimes seen wearing a t-shirt with the word "GUSH". Leisha Hailey (Alice Pieszecki) is/was in a band called Gush.

This show was renewed for a second season one day after the pilot episode aired and it was renewed for a third season before the second season even began airing.

The photograph of a man's face hanging on the wall in the art gallery during the show's opening montage sequence is that of Vito Russo.

Season 3 episode 1 starts with a flash back of a woman group in 1973 and it shows two women, Marilyn and Teri making out. In the last episode of the season, the same Marilyn is the marriage commissioner that takes off with Peggy Peabody.

New Amsterdam
John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
