I’m a huge fan of this show. Unlike Grey’s Anatomy and Heroes, it doesn’t play the “color-blind” card. Instead, it actually addresses racial issues, particularly having to do with Bette’s mixed race identity, her interracial relationship with ex Tina, her worries about Tina bringing up their biracial daughter in an all-white family with her new white boyfriend and his son, etc.
