But quantity isn't everything. Too much of the Showtime stuff slides right down the screen and forms a puddle. That's the case with "A Girl Thing," a two-part miniseries, of sorts, that ties together four separate stories involving women. In this case, the link isn't a house but a psychiatrist.

This fall we have more queer women characters than ever before with more representation of women of color in pivotal roles and characters that identify as lesbian, bisexual and pansexual. From network to cable to streaming, show runners, writers and producers are finding more ways to be inclusive of LGBTQ women as part of their expansive casts and, in some cases, giving them starring roles. Here are 21 shows—new and returning—that are giving gay and bi women some screen time this fall. In another episode, Malin Akerman and Orlando Bloom seek a third party on Tinder and end up spending the night with someone they already know Kate Micucci.
Review of “A Girl Thing”
Aptly named because of its appeal to a female audience, this star-studded, four-hour mini-series revolves around the troubled patients of a savvy, perceptive Manhattan psychiatrist Stockard Channing. In the first story, an confused, uptight attorney Elle Macpherson with a fear of intimacy is unexpectedly attracted to a bisexual advertising executive Kate Capshaw. But this is the most intriguing with its insightful dialogue and daring, nude seduction scenes.
With its frank and abundant depiction of homosexual sex, Showtime's ''Queer as Folk'' has been a breakthrough of sorts. The unapologetic and matter-of-fact acknowledgment of its characters' sex lives gives the series an aura of enlightenment though it would be merely seamy if its ultrahorny men were heterosexual. For women, though, it feels like a throwback.
