It seems that unless a show has some sort of talent competition or stupid people doing stupid things it cannot stay on the air anymore. This country is turning into a vast wasteland. This was a great thought provoking show, it's too bad the TV execs at the CW don't see it. Well that's another hour that I will not be watching TV, you lose CW, Well at least NBC didn't cancel Parenthood (yet), so I will turn the set on @ 10 PM.

Anyway, at least now I have the DVD to remind me that good TV exists for a little while anyway, and I can watch Life Unexpected anytime I want to, while the rest of you watch Snookie do stupid things. I'm happy about that.

As always, Warner Brothers did a nice job with this release, it has a slipcase and an "Amaray" style case that holds the six discs. There is a booklet that provides a synopsis, original airdate and the writer and director of each episode. The audio and video are top notch, as with all Warner Brothers TV on DVD seems to be. As far as I can determine, music has not been replaced, and there is no mention of it anywhere on the packaging, so I assume everything is the same as it was broadcasted.

I think had the show been able to continue, it would have gotten more interesting, but considering the last season was not a full season by CW standards, it was wrapped up nicely. Good TV is hard to come by, maybe in syndication this show will find the audience it deserved. If not, pick up the DVD, you can't go wrong with this one.

Now, I'm waiting for WB to release the final season of Everwood, which IS coming out on August 2nd - and includes and alternate ending! That is going to be good.

I found this series on Netflix actually, and the reviews on here just made me wanna see it more so I went ahead and played the first episode. After that I was hooked and could not tear myself away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cannot believe that the CW network had this phenomenal show in their line up, only to make the big mistake of cancelling it after just a mere two seasons and 26 episodes!!!! In my opinion, this is a good way to lose their fan base. They did this to another amazing show in the past, and I thought that they had learned their lesson; this just goes to show you that they have not.
It was obvious to me that on the last episode, they knew it to be their last so the writers did a last minute rewrite to give it the best send off that they possibly could for the characters. I guarantee that had this show been given the opportunity like all the crap that is on tv today to last for a few more seasons, it would've had a more fulfilling ending than this did. Not that it wasn't fulfilling, it was. It just wasn't supposed to end so soon and I think that the audience knew it came far sooner than it was deserved. That's the only slightly bad thing I have to say about this show and it isn't even enough for me to knock it down a star. This wasn't the shows fault. It was a true diamond in the rough. But instead the CW Network decided to give this show the boot and keep all this other crap on the air instead. A poor mistake on their end. It's hard to find a really decent show with heart, not to mention wit these days. Then if you're lucky a show like this will come along only be cancelled long before it actually should have been.
In simple english, if you've not seen this show you really should.

(Warning, I rant):
I pray that with good dvd sales and better ratings from reruns that the CW does not cancel this show. I am so sick of getting wrapped into great shows that get canceled before their time. I believe this show deserves another season. (small spoiler I am about to say) If the show did not introduce the sort of student-teacher relationship drama, the show would have done much better because parents did not approve of that. Now that it is over, then maybe ratings could be better. It will be a whole new set up too, college life! As a college student, I would like to watch that. The two other shows with college are so different from what this could be. Greek is about the Greek system and is extremely bubbly, there is not a person like Lux; Gossip Girl is not even about college, it is just NY rich kid drama.

The actual review:
ANYWAYS, watch Life Unexpected. It is about a girl, Lux, who was given up at birth and at 16 finds her parents. Due to medical issues, she was never adopted and grew up in the system. Her father, Nathaniel "Baze", owns a bar, and her mother, Kate Cassidy, is a radio talk show host. Lux coming back into their lives forces them all to grow up, a little. A little bit of Gilmore Girls banter vibe, but it is still so different from other shows.
At the very least Netflix it.

I cannot believe CW cancelled this show. I watch it every week and it least it has a good story line. I guess it is true--if the storyline isn't ridiculous, the show gets cancelled. The characters were all so interesting. My whole family (kids & grandkids)loved this show. This was one of the very few shows on TV that the whole family could enjoy together. I guess they'll put another cop show on to replace this and the kids can watch everyone killing each other.
