Article courtesy The New Yorker: Showtime’s two creepy-guy series, Californication (sex addict) and Dexter (serial killer), finished their seasons in December, making way for a trio of troubled-women shows – a new series and new seasons of two existing series – that begin this Sunday. In the première of “The L Word” ’s sixth and final season, the body of Jenny, a writer whose turn toward lesbianism provided the original story line of the show, is pulled from a swimming pool, and some of her friends are under suspicion; in “Secret Diary of a Call Girl,” a young woman in London leads a problematic double life as a regular gal and as a good-time gal; and in the new series, “United States of Tara,” Toni Collette plays a woman with dissociative identity disorder (the term now sanctioned by the American Psychiatric Association for what used to be called multiple personality disorder).
