    That news has been spreading like wild fire but the question still remains. It will be a spin off of who's character?

    Is that confirmed or is it just spec?

    I think Tasha would be a good character to spin-off, but it would have it be a very different kind of show. I LOVE Tasha, but she's a very serious character so a series built around her would have a very different tone.

    I actually think Alice would be the BEST character to spin-off. She could move to NYC for a job and be this fish-out-of-water. It could be a whole new start for her. The character is incredibly popular, as is the actress, and a show revolving around Alice would have the same fun, feisty tone The L Word has now. But I'd probably watch a spin-off with any one of these women. I love 'em all!

    It's official now: the potential spin-off will center around Alice. Per Variety.

    At first I desperately wanted it to be Shane but then I realized that if only one original character would be in the show then she wouldn't be with Jenny.

    Any continuation with any character is good because we keep (hopefully) some of the great writers and producers.

    I've really enjoyed this series.

    Just think, in a couple of years, if you're good and don't cheat, you can start all over at the beginning and watch it again!

    I think Alice is the best choice because LH has the best chance of carrying a show on her own. That said, it makes me wonder if the Tasha/Alice romance is being destroyed so Alice can be single on the new show. I understand why they'd want Alice to be single, but I think it's really terrible the way they're dealing with the Tasha/Alice relationship. There should've been more that led up to Alice's falling out of love with Tasha. It seemed like it happened overnight.

    My guess about the new series is that Alice will go to NYC to do a show and it'll be about the character we love as an outsider in this new city. She'll have to form all new relationships and carve out a whole new life for herself. I'm sure it'll be interesting but if they don't cast the right people, it won't work. What made The L Word so great was the chemistry between the ensemble cast. If they don't pair Leisha with the right actors, her show won't work, no matter how entertaining Alice can be.

    when it comes to me i think most of the characters would have something to show for the spin-off. i love alice, but i'm a little cautious about her own story, i think alice needs people to be herself.

    i think it would be equally interesting to see other characters, but somehow i think shane's spin-off could be the one with most on the plate. i mean, it appears she is the most screwed-up character on the show and i would totally love to see how she chnages her life.

    all in all, "tlw" spin-off is a treat in itself, so i am anxious to see what growns out of the idea.

    Well, maybe not the MOST screwed-up, but definitely in the top few!
