Certainly one of the most adult drama series that television has offered to date, the Showtime program centered around gay females based the eight episodes of its sixth and last round on the shocking death of one of its regular characters.
With that as the starting point, much of the story unfolds in the form of flashbacks leading up to the tragedy.
The excellent cast includes Jennifer Beals, Laurel Holloman, Mia Kirshner, Leisha Hailey. Katherine Moennig (now of CBS' "Three Rivers"), Pam Grier and Marlee Matlin. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; photo journal by Beals. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
