South Beach is a refreshing upbeat diverse show - deserves a chance
10 April 2006 | by moniebeeSee all my reviews

I initially started watching South Beach when I heard that Vanessa Williams would be one of the stars. From day one, I was hooked. My husband even started watching it with me! I haven't given a shot to any new shows on UPN since it's cancellation in 1999 of the amazing show, Legacy (starring Sharon Leal, Grayson McCouch, Jeremy Garrett, Lea Moreno). It is REALLY hard to get over a show when they just cut you off like that, and you have absolutely no closure. BTW...still trying to get a copy of Legacy on tape or DVD...if you know where I could obtain that...PLEASE contact me!

South Beach brings out the good and the bad, the beautiful and not so beautiful aspects of life in South Florida. I personally love Miami, so the setting is terrific. I think that the cast has done a fabulous job. Lee Thompson Young has portrayed his character well, as a young man who is desperately trying to make a name and build a career for himself and come from beneath his mother's shadow. The scripts I have found to be very interesting, and I haven't enjoyed an evening soap this much since the days of Melrose Place.

I really had hoped that UPN saw the value in this show. However, I've noticed that it hasn't been on since February, and is on hiatus for an undetermined time period. I suppose that means that the new CW will unfortunately drop the show. If this happens, many disappointed fans will be the result. Personally, I will not give a second chance to any new show that the CW creates should this occur. It is frustrating to get into a show that is good, and then have it just disappear. I hope the cast knows though how much the show entertained, and that there are fans who support keeping this show alive - AND this is despite the fact that it is associated with the infamous Miss JLo...
