I can't believe this!!! This was like the realistic Sex and the City version of gay males' lives in San Fran! What a bummer :/

As a gay man, I can't overstate how important this show was to me. To have a realistic representation of modern gay life on television is so important and they just canceled one of the only ones in existence. Sad day.

Fully agree with you on that Herman! This was revolutionary in our modern day world and now I feel like we've just taken another step backwards by cancelling this show too soon :(

NOOOOOO i found out the most realistic non-stereotypical gay show is canceled like this!?!?!?! i agree with Herman and Kuschi, its really sad to see these shows go when so many pointless ones go forward. I hope the cast continues on to do bigger and better things though.

I can't believe it!! It was a great show, it was realistic... everyone could relate to their struggles as humans connecting with humans.

I'm so bummed out. I can't believe they would cancel it, seriously. Such a good show, great casting and as you all pointed out it was a very realistic representation of modern gay life, which is what made me hooked up.

Was going to mention how I really tried to like this show, but episode 1 kept putting me to sleep! Now that I've read your reviews, I'm going to have a double espresso and try again! Hope I don't love it, though, if it's going away. I so agree with Kuschi: how do shows like HIMYM (and 2&1/2 Men, ughh!) survive for so long?! Wait, I know the answer to that and will keep it to myself. ;D

Devastating news, I loved this show. It was arguably the best LGBT programme on television, much better than Cucumber, Banana and Queer as Folk

Haha! Hi Kuschi. I'll go with the more diplomatic theory I've had. It's based on observation through work I did. One of our most populous demographics (for the most part) keeps the TV on one channel 24/7, watching The Price Is Right in the morning and CBS News at 5:30pm. Probably ever since Walter Cronkite was anchor. HIMYM is on, just rarely seen or heard. ;D

Love Europe! :) Which country?.. Well, what I meant, simply, is that lots of our grandparents keep their TV's set on CBS (HIMYM, 2&1/2 Men, Mom, CSI, etc.) - never changing the channel. That's just my best guess as to why some of those shows keep such high ratings. Please, please, no offense to anyone who likes those programs! **So exciting to meet people from all over the world here on Sidereel!! Let's knock Twitter and Instagram off their pedestals! :D :D :D

I just looked. OK, SPOOKY! I had JUST told my husband today about my friend in high school during the Cold War. His family was from Czechoslovakia (last name *Jicka*), and he was always saying he wanted to, "Free my people!" Great family! ...I knew how to spell it, too, because of him. :)

Well Holly I am from former Chzechoslovakia :D now separated to the Czech republic and Slovakia, I live in the CR :) You are right a lot of people don't switch programs, they gave up I guess. I watched CSI: NY, Miami those were great but they keep stretching Las Vegas so I don't watch it any more :) 2&1/2 is such a sh***y series :( Well lets hope they will renew it. So many great shows ended prematurely and I don't have much to watch :( :( :( (loved Secret Circle, Sanctuary, Covert Affairs ...)

I will have to watch those 3 & see if I like them, too. YES, I feel like I don't have as much to watch lately, but I think it's because I've gotten picky again. Just finished Fortitude (LOVE!), Helix (LIKE A LOT), and House of Cards (LOVE!). Now that I think about it, there are still plenty of good shows, I just have too much time on my hands! :D Kuschi, it's been so great "meeting" you & I'll try to check in with you sometimes! We can share more opinions! OK?! :D

*Yes, I knew that a lot of countries separated. I learned European geography in the '80s! LOL! But I need to learn more about the new countries. I know the new names, just not exactly where they are in relation to each other, and in what way different groups form the majority in each region.

It requires more than just being a show "about gay men" to keep it on the air. It was BORING. Gay, straight, male or female ... a show must be entertaining and this one wasn't. The L Word was a GREAT show but it stayed on the air not because it was about gay women but because it was ENTERTAINING to gay and straight alike !!!

@VanillaHugz totally agree with you about Looking but wouldn't go so far as to say that The L Word was a great show. It was entertaining for sure, but it was pretty ridiculous.
