What is it like to have The L Word back? The answer is: very welcome, though with reservations. But at least television’s only all-lesbian drama is returned to bright, familiarly glossy life, its old-meets-new group of characters looking way more diverse than before. (Warning: light spoilers follow.) On Sunday night, Showtime’s The L Word: Generation Q begins, 10 years after The L Word went off the air. Its original showrunner Ilene Chaiken has passed the baton to playwright-turned-screenwriter Marja-Lewis Ryan, who has had many tough decisions to make (one: get rid of that god-awful Betty theme song). While the original show had many fans, it also had just as many critics—some, like this reviewer, serving as both.

Dear Abby: At 18, I married my high school sweetheart. After 20 years of marriage and four wonderful children, my husband decided the grass was greener elsewhere, and we divorced. He paid no attention to my children or my grandchildren when they were young. He has since remarried, has a child with his current wife and acts like he’s Father of the Year. Last weekend, one of my grandchildren got married. My blowhard of an ex brought a picture of himself, my son, my grandson and my great-granddaughter saying he’d had this picture taken of four generations of the family. He never mentioned that if it hadn’t been for me giving birth to our children, none of them would have even been there. Am I overly sensitive to feel like a second-class citizen when we attend a family function? Must I continue to say nothing, or speak up? How do others handle this situation? Clueless in the East Dear Clueless: They handle it by choosing their battles carefully. I think it’s … [Read more...] about Mom protests when her ex leaves her out of the picture
