The L Word - Site Relaunch 

Showtime has launched a redesigned website for The L Word. I've been carefully avoiding the spoilers for the season, but I do see that there are two additional featured characters (Helena and Carmen), while Tim and Marina are gone, as had been announced.

I really don't like the new main page cast picture. It makes the show look like it must be one of those late night Cinemax soft porn shows. I'm not referring to the group hug shot, where they're all nude but tastefully and discreetly arranged. I mean the banner arrangement of individual shots, where they're wearing outfits that seem completely at odds with each characters' attire history. Well, I can't really tell when it comes to Helena and Carmen, as they have no history on the show, but you know what I mean.

Oh, on the Characters page there's another new character, Mark. I guess he's the new token boy. I can't say I'm sad to see Tim go buh-bye. He was just a collection of bad choices. Of course that made him perfect for Jenny, but still.

So mark your calendars: the new season begins Sunday, February 20th at 10:00 pm Eastern Time.
