The introduction to the characters and the start of a very good series
In this very first episode, we have an introduction to the main characters of the L Word: Bette and Tina, a lesbian couple who are together for almost 8 years and have the apparently perfect relationship; they are also trying to find a sperm donor, in order to have their own baby; Marina, the European and beautiful owner of ''The Planet'', a famous cafeteria in West Hollywood; Shane, a hot hairdresser who is a lesbian Don Juan, but gets followed by Lacey, one of her last sexual conquests; Dana Fairbanks, a conservative tennis player who hides her gay identity in the closet , in order to continue to have success in her career;
Alice Pieszecki, a modern magazine writer who wasn't lucky with her last relationships;
Tim and Jenny, a couple who start to live together in Los Angeles; Jenny is a recent graduated writer, who comes to L.A. to start writing her first novel and to live with her boyfriend; and Tim, a cute coach's assistant who works with the girls from the swim team at UCLA.
Kit Porter is Bette's half sister and fights against alcoholism, that already brought her many problems.
When Marina kisses Jenny in a (mainly lesbian) party promoted by Better Porter and Tina Kennard, it's only the beginning of many things Jenny will start to experiment..
