      What an order, journalistic style, brevity.

      Thanks for the post Dave, especially the mention and link to the
      review of the L Word. I've never watched it but seen a few reviews
      on it. Never one, however, written from such an unashamedly
      revolutionary women's perspective.

      It's a pity the journalistic style across the rest of the weekly
      deters the occasional buyer and potential readers from finding such
      gems. That may help explain the push to get other people to write
      for it, who knows?
