I watched the first episode of Life Unexpected back in January because the critic in the Philadelphia Inquirer insisted it was a family drama parents would not be embarrassed to watch with their teens.

Always on the lookout for something to do with my daughter that does not include using my credit card, I took his advice. I'm glad I did. Life Unexpected not only has a most intriguing premise, it also has great characters, smart dialogue and the cutest outfits on prime time television.

As for the story, this is how it goes:

On prom night, Baze (Kristoffer Polaha), (the most popular guy in high school) seduces Cate (Shiri Appleby) (a shy A student) only to ignore her the following Monday. When Cate tells Baze she is pregnant, he refuses to take responsibility for the baby. Without anybody to support her (her mother is an alcoholic, she doesn't even have her father's address), Cate gives her baby girl up for adoption. They will find the perfect family for her, they tell Cate, and she believes them.

Now sixteen years later, the girl, Lux (Britt Robertson), who was never adopted, is tired of living in foster care and wants to get emancipated. To do that she needs her birth parents to sign the papers.

So you see where this is going. Cate and Baze are about to receive the visit of their long stranded daughter. A visit that will make them confront a past and a relationship they thought long gone.

As the story starts Cate is a local celebrity in Portland (Oregon) where she host a radio talk show with her fiancé Ryan (Kerr Smith), while Baze lives with two friends as a perpetual teenager over the bar he rents from his father. To take responsibility for a teenage daughter is not in their agenda.

Since the program has been cancelled by the CW, they are going to release a "Complete Series" set rather than just season one. Look for it later in 2011.

lif unexpected should be the new show everyones talking about, it brings everything to the table and has a great cast to pull it off. the chemistry between this gang is amazing! the show is both simple and complicated, and just down right enjoyable. it has the perfect combination of wit and humour.

so what is it about? family. and well how life can be unexpected but you ahve to roll with the punches. Lux, a witty teen has pretty much raised herself, she's only really ever had herself to depend on and after nearly 16 years in the foster care system she wants out so she has control on her life. to do that first her birth parents have to sign the papers that were scewed up way back when, in her bid to get emancipated lux tracks down her birth father. Baze was the popular charming jock in high school and he never quite grew up, he lives above the bar he owns and relies mostly on his wealthy family, then the daughter he didn't know had been born knocks on his door. which leads to them finding cate. Cate was the smart loner in high school but now is a narotic, commitmentphobic radio dj who is in a relationship with her co host ryan, she has issues and lots of them. not too surprising she's not a baze fan after he got her pregnant and then refused to take responsibility for it, isntead of having an abortion cate gives her daughter up for adoption believing lux will be adopted to an amazing family that wants children. so cate is both thrilled and pretty peeved when lux comes back into her life.

a twist of fate leads lux back into the custody of her biological parents and together cate, baze, lux and ryan must discover how to work as a family. and what an adventure it is.

I happend to catch a commerical for this show on another network and it quickly caught my attention. It reminded me of Gilmore Girls which happened to be one of my favorite shows growing up as a teen! Now that I'm a bit older I wasn't sure how I would perceive this new family drama but decided to give it a shot! It hooked me from the very first episode! Life Unexpected is one of those shows that can make you laugh and cry all in one episode. It's a story about two people whose lives are quickly changed when the daughter they gave up at birth comes back into their lives 16 years later. Unfortunately Lux (Britt Robertson) has never been adopted and is now seeking emancipation so she can be on her own. But in order to do so she needs to seek out her biological parents to have them sign a form releasing her from foster care. However this story takes an UNEXPECTED twist when the judge decides to not grant her emancipation but instead put her back into the custody of her birth parents Cate (Shiri Appleby) and Baze (Kristoffer Polaha). Both having chosen different career paths, one successful as a host of her own radio morning show and secretly engaged to her co-host Ryan (Kerr Smith) and the other a bar owner whose life revolves around drinking and partying until the sun comes up are both suddenly thrown into parenthood! They are now forced to make decisions they have never made before which soon forces the two of them to have to grow up and become the parents they never had a chance to be! There are some twist and turns in the story but no matter what the show always ends on a positive note and never leaves the audience without a smile. Life Unexpected is a show that has laughs and tears but most of all it has a lot of heart!
