    Just wanted to inform people that the L word finally arrived here in the Phil.! I just finished watching the pilot on ETC 2nd avenue... they bleeped a few words and cut some scenes, but it's alright! at least I get to watch the hilarious Alice (Leisha Hailey) and Jennifer beals! and of course the very pretty Mia Kirshner! (I liked Jenny better in the first season, she was a lot nicer then!!!) LOL!

    It's on every Thursdays at 9pm ETC 2nd Avenue.

    I'm sure that they noticed the popularity of the show and decided to show it there.  I mean the population of the gay community in the philippines is pretty big.  Well it's good to know that they are showing it there.  at least the next time i go visit i won't be missing the show even if it they are reruns.

    Hey that's really great ! I'm happy for you. Here in Belgium, they are actually really open-minded. We've seen season 1 and 2 and season 3 is on some private networks ! It's great ^^ Vive THE L WORD !! BEST SHOW EVER !

    I wonder if there'll ever come a time when they won't "bleep" or cut out any parts...

    It kind of sucks that they cut out a lot of scenes, so now the show is a lot shorter than it should be. I caught a rerun of the episode during the wee hours of the morning and (surprise, surprise!) they aired it uncut. =)

    it's just so disappointing that ionly got to know L word now! I didn't know that a tv series solely dedicated to the lesbian community is existing! but then again, i' m happy (and really excited!) thatL word has finally landed in thephilippine television. ijust hope that this is not a "tamed" version of the real L word! to all L word fans, hope we can have our own chat community where we can exchange news, stories and update (and maybe we can find a lifetime partner here)about our favorite show, the L word!

    i never thought i could find people who are also interested in the L Word until I found this link...im also from the Philippines but I can't watch it on TV...I don't have cable anyhow...but I've watched everything from season 1 to 5 and season 6 is almost done...it's great!!!! I just watch it through the net...you can see everything w/o cuts. I'm so crazy about this show and i guess it has depicted the lives of so many people in the world...I'm so happy there's a show like this w/c is very open and realistic...thanks to showtime for this wonderful work. hey guys...i think you'd better watch it on the net so you'll see everything and be moved with the show more...coz i am already... I'm a big Tibetter fan!!!!love them both...Tina and Bette..alpha couple!!
