Not enough reality TV in your life? Talk about "The Real L Word." Showtime's new series, a reality spinoff of the network's defunct scripted series "The L Word," revolves around six Los Angeles-based lesbians and their everyday melodrama. Think any one of the "Real Housewives" editions meets "The L Word." (Sunday) If you like '60s fashion , talk about "A Single Man." The film, out on DVD, stars Colin Firth as George Falconer, a gay British university professor living in Southern California in 1962 who is struggling to cope with the death of his partner.

Katherine Moennig spent the last six years playing sexpot lesbian hairdresser Shane on Showtime's "The L Word." The actress, who happens to be a cousin of Gwyneth Paltrow, is far tamer -- and so is her hair -- in her new role as Dr. Miranda Foster on CBS' medical drama "Three Rivers." Do you miss playing Shane? At this moment, I miss a lot about her. The beauty of that character was her unabashed way of viewing life. She was so unapologetic. She was always deemed the bad girl, and that was always good to play.

In an interview last July on the Vancouver set of Showtime's soapy lesbian drama "The L Word," actress Mia Kirshner was asked where she imagined her character, Jenny Schecter, would wind up when the series ended its six-season run this winter. The show, after all, began with Jenny's entrance into a glittering, enticing West Hollywood lady scene, as she befriended the other inhabitants of "The L Word" world and soon realized she was a lesbian.

What it's a good time to talk about: "The L Word." The morose marine layer that engulfed last year's "L Word" lifted this season -- no one died tragically! The Ls bed-hopped, broke up and played basketball, as it should be in Sapphic Los Angeles. This week marks the end of Season 4, but Showtime has already announced that Season 5 is a sure thing. (Tonight) What nobody wants to talk about: Good Charlotte.

IN 2004, "The L Word" was hailed as a groundbreaking look at the sexed-up lives of lesbians in Los Angeles. Now in its fourth season, the Showtime series' cast has expanded to the point where its women seem to constitute a small city unto themselves. Increasingly, "The L Word's" new additions are well-known actresses who have found themselves outside of the narrow range of options available -- or, rather, not available -- to them.

If you've watched Showtime's "The L Word," now in its second season, you know that Shane -- played by 27-year-old Katherine Moennig -- is the center star in an elaborate constellation of lesbian melodrama. Despite its West Hollywood setting, the series shoots in Vancouver. But now that the show has wrapped filming, Moennig gets to explore Los Angeles, after having moved from New York about two years ago.
