Season three of Venice the series comes to a monitor near you from tomorrow, the 23rd November, for a very reasonable subscription fee of $9.99 (£6.59) for the full season. If you haven’t seen the previous seasons, DVDs are available via the Venice web-site, or you can read brief re-caps here.
Venice is a soap opera, but unlike most soaps, its central characters are not only lesbians but lesbians who are allowed to show more than a dash of passion. The cast includes many familiar faces from American soaps, especially the cancelled Guiding Light, which provided the impetus for the series when the tremendously popular Otalia (Olivia/Natalia) pairing were denied an on-screen kiss.
After a somewhat rocky start, Venice truly found its stride in season two, so it will be very interesting to see how it capitalises on those improvements and in what direction the story matures.
Plus, the real question on ever fan’s lips; who will Ani choose, Gina or Lara?
