    Hi, I totally love this series, I was sooo disappointed when got to know that there is no continuation. It’s an awsome series, that teaches us a lot: how to handle difficult situations and go up, not looking at the obsticles. Please, go on…:(

    Found this series on netflix, loved it and so upset when I found that it was cancelled. They at least should do a movie sequel to put some closure to the series. Many of my friends loved it too. Reminded me of the Gilmore Girls. They should not have cancelled it!!!!!!

    Just found this on Netflix and immediately got hooked. It was a great show with great actors. Very sad it ended so quick. and with a cliffhanger. Please please pick it up again somehow. Maybe it will be way more successful these days………

    Just watches this show for the first time. Watched every episode and absolutely loved it. Hate the way it ended. Would love to see 10 more seasons of Beautiful People. So broke my heart to see it just abruptly end. I know its now 8 years later but would still love to see a new season of this with the same characters. Maybe a follow up, years later down the road only to start the show all over again, showing what has happened throughout the last few years and starting new episode in the future or what would now ne the present. I believe this show would sale in todays world!!! Love it!!!

    Talk about ticked off. Wow I also got this from the dollar tree. Me and my 14 year old got hooked and so sad when I went to look for more seasons. I pray that one day I get to see the ending.

    so i fell upon this on netflix, due to Jackson Rathbone starring in the show, i was very disappointed in the show ending the way it did.. it should have stayed on the air, it was a great story line.

    I happened to stumble upon this series @ the Dollar tree. I took attention to it BC I am a huge OTH fan and two of the main actors were on it. Anyway this was the best dollar I have spent. I am hooked on the series but also disappointed in the ending.in my mind Nicky comes back and reunites
    with Sophie… they were the reason I got hooked. When he left the show it ended for me. Was hoping he would ha e reappeared b4 the show ended. Does anyone know where to find music from the show?

    Hi Again;…..Thought some more about why the show may have been canceled…
    Boy Toy Gideon, Mom who goes through three men, in a very short time… daughter wanting to improve her career chances; doing the same…. Though there was the element of you must not turn to drugs when stressed… what about turning to sex for the same reasons????.. Not much of a Moral element to the show at all…. Just very great acting!!!
    In spite of the dysfunction of the feminine characters, Lynn and Karen; I came to care for them…and hoped their lives would take on a fuller element of happiness…. The truth is one can not get away from what ever your God/World view is…this View will be reflected in how one thinks and lives.. I wondered about the little Angel statue in the hallway along with the Buddha figure.
    I hope all of us who watched Beautiful People, will learn through our own trials to make different choices than Lynn and Karen… I applauded little Sophie, there seemed to be an element of groundedness in her young character…glad that the Writer decided to keep Sophie that way.. and watching her sit alone at the Fashion Show, I hoped that the Writer was not planning on having her change her mind about supporting Chris’s efforts to embrace hard responsibilities. Anyway guess we will not know what the Writer had planned..
