  1. That's The Truth says

    Being in the industry behind the scenes (rep) I love this show. Not only is it accurate of the business but life in general. All those stereotyping this as ‘LA types’ are wrong, period.

  2. Kemble says

    I’ve lived it, loved it and survived it. Everything in L.A. worships the film-god. The only laws that cannot be broken are being fat, poor, or old. It’s as accurate a portrayal of L.A. as you’re going to get for a prime-time network show.

    I’ve come across every character and every circumstance in The L.A. Complex (x 10). The only stretch of imagination for me is a motel occupied, “only,” by 20-somethings, “all,” working the biz, embracing an, “All for One and One for All,” m.o. , and having loud poolside parties where the neighbours don ‘t call the police.

    Dorothy Parker once said, “I can’t think of anything more distasteful than appealing to the lowest common denominator.” For a show brilliantly written and cast, it will be a shame if it’s not picked up for a 3rd season, because it doesn’t.

  3. says

    Please KEEP LA COMPLEX! IT’S AN AWESOME SHOW. This show is comparable to Revenge. I just feel not enough people know about it. Give it a third season, PLEASE! Seems every show I really really enjoy always falls to the waste basket. This is a show worth saving.

  4. shame says

    its a shame the press gossip girl got, while this little gem will get tossed into early cancellation after 2 seasons, lucky to even get that. great casting, creative writing with the ability to just say “we are putting these 2 together, deal with it” and “this character is here to introduce another character, then will leave, take that”. its creative. K/King’s storyline is pretty darn good too

  5. Mark says

    I like LA Complex very much: good characters, and fast moving; and it
    doesn’t pull too many punches about how hard breaking into show biz
    is at some levels. I find alot of the time, when I think of shows that really
    I got sort of addicted to, they’re Canadian imports..

  6. Mandy says

    LA Complex airs two nights a week. Tuesdays and Thursdays. It’s weird because ratings for Thursdays is actually better on Tuesdays. Thursday’s episode is the encore as well…

    All you people complaining about The CW picking up this show for another season over TSC need to understand that TSC wasn’t canceled in favor of The LA Complex.

    The LA Complex is imported from Canada and is a summer show.

    • Craig says

      The real complaint is that the CW decides to go with inexpensive filler shows like the LA Complex instead of better shows like Secret Circle. You don’t build a network in the US with a show that usually doesn’t even attract half a million viewers per episode.

  7. Aaron says

    dont get me wrong the L.A. complex is a good show but keeping this over the secret circle is just murder John Blackwell should use some of his black magic on the producers

  8. Dannielle says

    Please promote this show better!! I didn’t even know S02 started thank god I had it scheduled to DVR any new episodes otherwise I would have missed it how do you expect it to do well when it’s never promoted yet Arrow, Beauty and the Beast and Emily MD which don’t start until OCTOBER are printed like crazy?!?!?! Please give this show a fighting chance!!!!!

  9. Christina says

    Please keep The L.A. Complex… I’m sure, there’s people., who still dont know about the show… I remember, when the show, 7th Heaven, first started, but, didn’t start watching until like season 4 or 5, after that, I started watching it… Im sure, around season 4 or 5, that more people could start watching The L.A. Complex, so, please give it a chance… Its really a good show… just alot of people, don’t know about it.
