'There's only one thing that cuts across all our realities
It's love. The bridge between all our differences
This emotionally daring show centers not only on gay issues but a bit more to a relationship than sex
All the characters are complex but instantly likable
The nudity is not exhibited in a gratuitous manner, it is shown as part of the thoughts and feelings of the characters
The main characters are:
Bette and Tina, a life partners who have been together for seven years
They have the best relationship of anybody gay or straight
They are about to do an incredibly major thing
Into this mix comes Shane, a girl with short black hair who doesn't get involved with anybody; Alice, the bisexual writer who has one conviction that we're all connected through love, through loneliness, through one tiny, lamentable lapse in judgment; Dana who refuses to accept that whether you're gay, or you're straight, or you're bisexual, you just go with the flow; Jenny who has her world turned upside down when she met, at a party, the most stunning woman she had ever seen; Marina the owner of the little café who doesn't think she has done something wrong; and Kit, the lady with the flashing eyes, who has always wanted to have a place where musicians could come and jam and get much love...
As Bette, Jennifer Beals is a very well-rounded individual... She keeps replaying it over and over again in her head, just trying to figure out the exact moment when she could have stopped herself...
As Tina, Laurel Holloman gets the feeling from Bette that she's so proud to be with her, and she makes her feel really safe and loved
As Shane, Katherine Moennig is amazing
She is an unattainable beauty who practices sex with no emotional entanglements...
As Alice, Leisha Hailey is constantly complaining about feeling sluggish
She ends up with the most complicated interpretation of sexual identity she's ever encountered
Mia Kirshner gives the picture of togetherness and sanity to Jenny
She's beautiful and that compensates for a multitude of sins
While she is truly in love with Tim her increasing fascination with Marina permits her life to be wrecked with supposition
Karina Lombard is definitely beautiful, sophisticated and hot as Marina
The really thing about her character is when she focuses on Jenny we truly feel that Jenny is the only human being that exists for her
Erin Daniels knows that she is gay but is indecisive to reveal it
Lolita Davidovitch is not exactly an innocent bystander
She tries to make others jealous in order to find the others desirable
Rosanna Arquette never felt more alive than she has in the last 20 years of her life
But would she leave her husband, her child, her houses, her trips to Paris, her black-tie galas to run to some rank little love nest with a nice assistant hairdresser who barely has her foot in the door?
Much could be said about every character
Each actress takes on controversial subject while still injecting true different feelings
