Storyline

Cross cultural and cross-generational challenges for gays, lesbians, and their parents. Janet wants to marry Cara who's fearful her Chinese parents will reject her if she comes out. Cara's parents are in town for a family wedding. But is fear of her parents' response Cara's only obstacle to commitment? Meanwhile, nearby, Jesse, at 14, has come out to his mom and tofu-cooking step-father the week that his own fun but flaky father, a gay actor, arrives for a rare visit. Jesse's enthusiastic embrace of his dad throws Norman, the step-father, into a crisis of confidence. A cooking lesson, a makeover, and a therapy session where the patient asks pointed questions propel the plot. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Lighthearted and Sweet!
3 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I personally enjoyed this show.I liked the chemistry between Janet and Cara. Janet (Natalie Sky )was my most favorite character,I enjoyed her acting.I have seen her in other shows and seems to have a promising career ahead of her. None of the characters rubbed me the wrong way.They came across as friendly and believable.My opinion of the show is that it's very original and important for all to see no matter what anyone's sexual preference is.This is a positive show for the younger audience who are struggling with their sexuality, and also the older audience(their families )that don't know how to deal or understand what their loved one is going through.Both can benefit from watching Floored By Love.It was smart that the cast was racially diverse.It shows us all that these problems affect everyone.I believe the show was done in a tasteful manner without being too dark or inappropriate. Slightly campy ,yet sweet and lighthearted.Truly worth watching again.
