Supremely underrated show that never got the recognition it deserved. It was never afraid to tackle taboo subject matter such as; homosexuality and homophobia in Hip Hop and the African American community, depression, self-harm, loneliness, suicide, incest and religion (namely scientology) and that's to name a few. It managed to transcend unbelievable storylines in a very grounded, realistic way without ever loosing it's wit or authenticity. The actor's involved done a phenomenal job portraying flawed, relatable and emotionally complex characters and the writing was superb, I can't think of a single storyline that didn't engage me which is especially rare in this soap-style format. Perhaps the biggest strength of the show was it's brutal honesty, making it in L.A is an extremely rare thing to do, all these characters (with the notable exceptions of Connor and Kaldrick) were broke, and you believed it. In short, The L.A. Project is the best show that you've never heard of.
J’ai attendu de terminer la série avant de commenter. La première saison était un peu bof, c’était pas nul mais c’était pas super non plus, j’ai continué à regarder seulement parce que ce milieux m’intéressait. À partir de la deuxième saison ça devenait plutôt intéressant, la série m’a fait comprendre comment ça se passait dans le milieux des « stars ».
