I just rewatched the original and immediately watched whole GQ season. I love the fact that it made me really like Bette for the first time, never even liked her. I didn't like Alice but in her case it didn't change... yet. She had couple moments when I was at least interested. I see the potential in new characters but noone stand out for me to be liked. I wasn't really interestend in their stories tho I liked the relations with the old cast. I really want more of that. The bar could be a nice place for them to be all in one place. I sooooooooooo wanted Carmen. There are no words how bad I wanted her BUT... I really like Quiara and Shane's moments. Im at the crossroads bc I would love to see their relationship from beginning, I know I would love them so hard but I didn't see it so it's hard to ship them as I don't know Quiara or their relationship. So I still want Carmen and Shane tho Shane really loves Quiara and I don't want to see Carmen for one scene or for one hook up. I need them as endgame. All things considering... It was a nice season.


I miss my girls (and boy)!


I really love this show and have always had, makes me so nostalgic. It’s the most accurate representation of ~the queer world~ I’ve seen on TV. Loved the new cast and how they connected to old characters. A lot of drama, great friendships, important topics being discussed. I really hope to see more seasons of it. It’s a lgbtq+ must watch!


A totally refreshed version of the old girls. I absolutely love all of the characters.


Loved the L word in the beginnings but they last two seasons we're not my thing. But this is totally different. Memories, great actrices. Love it from the first episode. Now there was the season finale and I said ... What ??? Now they must really give is a second season for sure ! I really hope to see more of it.

The Best LGBT Shows to Watch Right Now (Including The L Word: Generation Q)

Lately, it is the LGBT dimension that keeps TV viewers hooked. The intensity of emotions, the drama, and the fact that every show presents some unique and new dimensions is what makes it super interesting.

The relationships can be so delicate, and equally strong. The intense relationship of Rue and Jules from HBO’s Euphoria keeps you engaged while a teen romance shapes up. If you want to add a little magic to your watch list, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina can be on your weekend watch list, or The Order with some wolfish romance by Netflix can portray few other dimensions.

Understanding the perspectives may seem overwhelming or complicated at times. Well, it is not always tears and cries. Watch Feel Good and laugh on May’s innocent jokes or George’s simplicity who has always been in a heterosexual relationship until now. Work in Progress is literally the work in progress. Theo and Abby’s unfinished story demands to be watched now. There can be no better times.

If you are looking for some action and comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Modern Family cannot be ignored. Not only they represent all the fun and love, they also shed light on the challenges and struggles that LGBT community has faced over the years.

Love is not bound by societal conditions as it never was. These TV series are as good to watch right now as they were when they were first released. What is your favorite show? Tell us in the comments!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
