L word sneak peek

A show often criticized for its lack of butch characters returns January 8th with a tough techie. Punk rocker Daniela Sea, who joins the cast this season, will play an adorable mid-western butchie who falls for flighty Jenny and takes a gender journey. Nice to see a return to the topic of gender-queerism, especially after not only completely abandoning the most interesting storyline of last season, but of never addressing any of the issues Ivan faced as a transgendered person. Sea is also the only cast member to join Leisha Hailey in publicly acknowledging an alternative sexual orientation. Are we seeing changes to the oh-so-LA version of Lesbianville? Well, I wouldnt hold my breath.
