I would disagree. I think the some of the people on the show made mistakes, the same as any relationship does.

I'm curious as to whether the OP will ever come back and read these answers...

It will be good to see more Poly people like the Triad and Less Swingers like the "Pod".

Hope the search goes well.

Looks like she's deleted most of her comments. Seems community was not all that receptive to her.

She's stopped interacting with a lot of the community. I would guess because the show wasn't as well received by the community as she was hoping. She was also not terribly open to criticism about the show.

Default Loved every minute

While I won't go into the subtleties of how some characters' personal opinions could be identified by the unknowledgeable public as all poly opinions, my wife and I thought the show was GREAT! We recently started dating another woman and asked that she watch it. Needless to say it brought up a truly energetic conversation about our relationship, where it was and where we wanted it to go. The show opened our eyes to the though of polyamory as a principle more than a practice and really welcome another season.

Wow, I totally missed this thread. Is this series available on hulu or anything?

Although if its premise centers on young thin pretty people having group sex, it paints a very inaccurate picture of Polyamory. As we experienced polys know, many people living this way are older, past the age of having young children, and certainly not living in large groups and having sex with 3 or more people all the time. If this producer would have read our board she could've seen all the middle aged polys here, singles, or couples, who date on their own, don't "share a female" in a triad, and guess what? Some of us are fat! And plain of face!

I love how she's trying to get people aged 25-50. Blech. Ageism. Old people being romantic and sexual is, of course, always gross.

Not quite yet. It probably wont be until season 2 starts.
