I know not every reader of this blog is planning to stay in tomorrow night to watch the season premiere of South of Nowhere.
That's why I'm giving you a heads-up to set your TiVos NOW
for a season pass to the greatest lesbian teen storyline ever. Trust me: you won't regret it.
South of Nowhere
Spencer and Ashley
is a super-fun, super-dramatic, super-LGBT-inclusive series that has been nominated twice for GLAAD Media Awards. It is groundbreaking, funny, heart wrenching and ultimately feel-good without being syrupy. I don't know how it walks this tight rope with such success, but it really is a quality series.
If you love Dawson's Creek's
drama, Gossip Girl's
lesbian love story and GREEK's
sense of fun, I daresay you heed my words and set your DVR. The one-hour premiere is Friday, October 10 at 9 pm ET on The N. After that, the show will head to its regular time slot of Fridays at 8:30 pm ET.
Of course, I'm not the only one who thinks South
is remarkable. Check out this retrospective video, where GLAAD's own Director of Entertainment Media Damon Romine
, The Trevor Project
's Executive Director Charles Robbins
, showrunner Tommy Lynch
and many cast members discuss the series' importance in the lives of LGBT youth.
