One of the best new shows that got canceled!
13 November 2014 | by motdranwodSee all my reviews

I loved this show. It had everything! So it was canceled right away. Seriously, all you have to do to be a TV executive is be tall. No brains needed. This bunch would cancel Supernatural, Friends, and Sinfield in the past if they were allowed to. I really liked the snooty single girl who typified the California woman of today.FWBL had smart dialog, believable relevant plot, and addressed adult situations. It wasn't about teenagers that acted like grown ups, but about grownups. I was hoping for the next season to be even better! I hate to start watching a series anymore. Because the same suits that canceled Firefly might not have anything to do that day. Seriously, I can't believe this one got canceled. Cancel a reality show with giant butted women....please!
