I'm so late to the party. I'm glad though. I think I enjoyed it more, now, in 2020 than I would have when it first came out. I think out of all of them, I miss Jenny and Dana the most. To me, Jenny will always be that girl from season 1.

Progressive and great, but sometimes overly-progressive, meaning that the didactic nature of the series sometimes interfered with the story-telling. And some of the storylines were of course better, or more sophisticated, than others.

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

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!
