Not perfect but worth watching,,
14 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Given that this show was made on a small budget and were trying to create characters with depth and complexity in thirty minutes, I thought the show was great. I think if they can get the backing of a production studio with a decent budget behind it, it will be fantastic! I found it refreshing to see gay characters portrayed in a way that is not stereotypical and showed their lives As a whole, not just focused on their sexual orientation. Actually, that is only a small facet of their lives. This show touched on relationships, friendships, family, career choices, and addiction. I watched the unedited versions on Netflix. There were a few production problems, with sound especially. Some of the story lines weren't as fully developed as I would have liked. And probably not as much as they would have wanted either. I mean, how in depth can you get with seven characters in nine episodes that are thirty minutes? There were several guest appearances that were fun to see, but I don't think they were utilized as well as they could have been. Some of the scenes seemed rushed and out of place.. i.e. Paul Mooney as Len's dad. It seemed to come out of no where and the dialog hinted at a strained relationship between father and son, but there really was no time to explore any part of that relationship and if that scene were cut out, we (the audience) wouldn't have missed it. I did read that if DTLA comes back for a second season the shows will be a full hour-which I think would be most appropriate. I also found it a little weird that some actor's nudity would be blurred out while others would be on full display. I mean, one would think if you signed up for a gig that required nude scenes, you would be prepared for that no? Overall I found the characters to be interesting and I wanted to know more about them. Fingers crossed that we'll see a second season on Netflix soon.
