The show's title

The original code-name for the project was Earthlings, a rarely used slang term for lesbians.[1] The Planet, the name of the group's main hangout, appears to be a pun on the original title.


The phrase "the L word" has been used as an alias for lesbian since at least the 1981 play My Blue Heaven by Jane Chambers, in which a character stammers out: "You're really …? The L-word? Lord God, I never met one before."[2]

According to the storyline, Alice first started the Chart on the back of a napkin. In Season 1 it was moved from the whiteboard stretched across one wall of her apartment to an internet site of Alice's own creation.


During episode 1.02: "Let's Do It", Alice attempted to write an article about the chart in Los Angeles magazine. As she was unable to convince her supervisor editor of the validity of such an article, she opted to publish the Chart on the internet instead. The network was then enriched by the visitors, and was one of the resources used in season 1 when Lara's sexual orientation was in question. Los Angeles magazine is a monthly magazine devoted to covering the city of Los Angeles and the surrounding areas of Southern California. ... Lara Perkins, a fictional character on Showtimes tv series , The L Word. ...


Late in season 2, the Chart regains plot relevance in the show when a disturbing encounter with Alice's former girlfriend Gabby Deveaux prompts her to put it up as a topic during an interview at KCRW.

KCRW (89. ...


From Alice's point of view, the Chart is about her and how she is connected to everyone else on it. Any of the main characters can be connected to Alice in less than four moves. In episode 2.08: "Loyal", Alice claimed she could connect almost anyone to her in less than six moves.


In episode 1.02: "Let's Do It", it is mentioned that the major contributor to the Chart is Shane, which is later confirmed during episode 1.12: "Locked Up" by a comment in which she points out her connections could sum up to about twelve hundred. A larger "hub" in the Chart is found during episode 4.01: "Legend in the Making".


During Season 3, the Chart serves as a marginal storyline that advances through each episode and concludes in the season finale.


In the episode 5.04: "Let's Get This Party Started", as the investigation of Tasha for homosexual conduct escalates, Alice scrubs the chart off her apartment wall to hide evidence of her relationship with Tasha.


Originally, The L Word was to be based around a lesbian Kit Porter, and "The Chart" was tattooed on her back.[1] When Kit Porter was changed into a straight character, The Chart was given to Alice instead. Kate Kit Porter is a fictional character on the Showtime television series The L Word. ...

"The L Word" (2004) (1210 words)
A gay marriage coupled coupled with a gay divorce, the excitement of new love coupled with the misery of a cheating partner, and sex is sometimes a beautiful expression of companionship and sometimes a meaty, awkward, disgusting mess.
There is no mistaking that, "L" has an out-in-your-face feminist agenda to shake up and reshape the world's traditional norms with the questions posed by the simple existence of the characters.
I won't say that "L" is going to "strike a civil rights blow" for "progressives", but I will say that its sliver demographic has never been so well spoken for and the show never stops going all out to entertain.
The L word Online (613 words)
The L Word Season 4 DVD is set to be released in 2 days in the US.
Also Guinevere Turner has been added to the LA L Word convention and Eric Mabius to the L3 event in Blackpool, UK.
For those of you that can't make it to the LA L Word convention, nor the UK ones, never fear there's a new convention that's popped up in Germany for March 2008; QueerCon.
