The L.A. Complex follows the lives of twenty-somethings living in the same apartment complex in L.A. trying to make it as actors, dancers, producers and comedians. Relationships begin and end, the need to succeed is tested and all characters are pushed to their breaking points. Starring Degrassi’s Cassie Steele as Abby, an aspiring actress who moves to LA with nothing but her Maple Leafs hockey bag and dreams of being a famous actress, The L.A. Complex is certain to be everyone’s newest obsession. Full of new relationships, salacious temptations and make-it-or-break it decisions, the series coming-of-age dwellers grapple with life's defining moments as they deal with the unreality of the show-biz industry.
Part Fame, part Melrose Place, THE L.A. COMPLEXmakes even the life of a starving actor look glamorous, sexy, and all kinds of fun. There's no shortage of ways to fill the void when you're surrounded by beautiful, vivacious neighbors in need of similar attention. And when sex isn't in the cards, there's always a party within reach to help nurse the wounds of bad auditions or lousy bosses. That's not to say that everything's roses among these neighbors. There's plenty of competition, jealousy, and scandal, plus some mysterious motivations and back stories for many among the diverse cast.
Lest it be judged on these qualities alone, however, keep in mind that The L.A. Complex does a good job of keeping these twentysomethings real enough that viewers can still relate to both the dilemmas in their personal lives and their quest for professional ones. All of the characters -- even those who've found success -- struggle with moral boundaries, relationship woes, and self-image issues, and there are some positive teaching moments mixed into the well-written content. The bottom line? The show's steaminess and language require a discerning parental eye, but if your older teen can handle it, there's more to this Canadian drama series than just some run-of-the-mill bedroom scenes and salacious behavior.
Follows young wannabes around as they struggle to "make it". I wasn't expecting much, but found the whole thing oddly engrossing. Only knew of Jewel Staite from her previous work in Firefly and SG Atlantis stuff, but liked her in those, so i gave it a go. All the actors do a good job, inter-relationships are setup quite quickly and draws you into the story very well. But then again, there appears to be a fair amount of cleavage and lithe young bodies in the episodes I've seen so far, which although intergral(ish) to the story, does make me think its appeal may be slightly elevated by the contents of my pants. This is primarily achieved with the use of Chelan Simmons(who was in the V funny "Tucker and Dale vs Evil".....as a dancer who works part-time as lapdancer. LOL. On behalf of hot-blooded males. Dear writers, Thanks for that. But seriously, the stories and characters are good. I hope the they do well, I think it deserves a decent run. So far so good.
