‘The L Word: Generation Q’ Review: New Vision, Old Blind Spots - The New York Times
Over all, the cast now better reflects Los Angeles’s ethnic and gender diversity, which may be why the word “relatable” came up a couple of times in a recent New York Times feature about the new show.
This relatable is debatable, though, considering that the characters are conventionally attractive and range from comfortable to wealthy. As a poorly paid production assistant — yes, on Alice’s show — the 20-something Finley (Jacqueline Toboni) is the lowest on the income totem pole. But Finley’s financial predicament is relative in terms of actual hardship and access to power, and she wastes no time moving into Shane’s new mansion in the hills.
