it tears my heart out.
2 October 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Quite possibly the saddest thing i have seen in months. I found this 6 episode series of Nearly Famous, whilst searching for other things Aaron Johnson had been in other than Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, only to find this, and get all attached to Owen and Lila, only to be disappointed in the end. Amazing series, but I wanted them to end up together so badly! I feel like such a sap, sitting here, and watching the final episode and crying like there's no tomorrow. I wish they hadn't canceled the show, or at least had more than 6 episodes. But at least what they did make, was really amazing. Great cast, amazing plot lines, characters that really grabbed your soul. The only thing that disappointed me, was the Owen and Lila didn't end up together in the end, but I guess its true in the fact that in life, some things just don't work out. <3 Much love.
