best show i have ever seen in my life. the character dexter is amazing. first of all he is a bad ass. and i love how in everyday situations he is so clueless but hes also a genius. i can not get enough of this show. the books are also amazing. in the books he refers to himself as a wolf in a sheeps fur. wich is so clever. highly recomend watching the show and reading the books

This show is truly great. Great characters, awesome plot, and highly entertaining. Addicting, really. In my opinion, Season 4 is the best. Season 6 let me down a little bit. But I still love this show and I would recommend it to anyone.

I really enjoy this show. It is more complex than you think. It combines many different elements: suspense, comedy, drama, etc. The plot is very unpredictable, which is a great feature in a show.

Queer as Folk Report Abuse

Comments:
The best and most beautiful tv show I have ever seen. And it shows the gay community in a way you have never seen before. I loved QAF from the very beginning i saw the pilot episode. Over the seasons many different issues are comming up like HIV, marriage and same sex parents. The show is worth to watch, and you can watch it whether you're gay or straight. I see the world with new eyes after watching it, and I think you might actually do it too. :) I give the show 6 out of 6 stars for the hot scenes and the good storyline :)

It really did start out strong, especially the first season. One problem tho is that the production values went down as the show went along. Still worth checking out tho, i watched most of it on netflix, not sure if it is still there or not tho-you know how fickle digital streaming is.

The L Word Report Abuse
The L Word is a show that follows lesbians.
16 points - added 5 years ago by Peter - 1 comment
Comments:
One of the BEST shows I have ever seen. I literally watched each season like 3 times!!! It not only opens you into the world of lesbians but it addressing issues of friendship, monogamy, political views etc. When you are done with the show you will really feel like you knew each character personally and the acting was excellent. There are alot of sexy love scenes and it is the epitome of an unconventional show!! After this show you wil be so hype to watch The Real L World reality show, I recommend it! ABSOLUTELY GREAT!
