I just love and hate it!
18 July 2016 | by leo_mamoloSee all my reviews

Actually I just have seen the whole seasons for maybe 3 weeks. It took my whole evening and dawn watching it. When i get up in the morning @ 9 this is the first thing in my mind and sat up to 4Am just to watch this. I considered this series as a wonderful gift for me. I realized that there is really love for gay people. It gives all people in the world justice to the word "equality". But, what strikes me the most is the ending of the season, until now, i still cant believe this should be the planned scene which should serve as the ending. It broke my heart very badly that made me promise not to watch any series anymore. I don't mean to give negative reviews about it but that's how i felt. Actually, I promised myself not to watch this "series" thing because it really gets me trouble and will not get out of my mind for very long time most especially if endings are not happy for me. I have waited and cried so much waiting for them to be happily wedded couple and live happily ever after but it disappointed me. I somehow knew the purpose of the writers to do this to leave the ending to the viewers but it really gave me a load of heartbreaks.(Well, i never can cope to the scenarios in the movie since i have not experience this 'love' thing which made me realized also that this 'no love' thing hurt me as for Justin and Brian). I planned not to finish the last 4 minutes of the final episode because i have some intuition that it will really happen but still continued hoping that in the last 30 seconds Justin will show himself and somehow gives smile to Brian. (Well, if that was the ending, Ill be able to sleep and gives a very happy ending to it and can sleep on time starting this day but it wasn't) I never planned to write a review but its my very way to get all my heartaches this series has given me.But frankly i still hated the way it ended. (I swear that i will not watch any series may it be like this or any genre because I cant recover that fast). Its not about persuading people not to watch this 'series'or any other but i meant it for myself only.I have bargained my study time, workout,etc for this but it left me frustrated.(Well, i would not watch anymore even in other movie genre).

On the other side, COngratulations to the all the people involved in this because it was a very excellent job. I may not be reacting this way if they have not given a story which is like this and casts who are like them which means it's just so brilliant! This review could not be very useful since its 11 years ago but a great job from everyone part of this.

I love you Justin and Brian!
