Life As We Know It

Show Summary

"Life As We Know It" was a show about high school life in Seattle, shown through the eyes of three teenage boys. Dino is the jock with secret sensitivity; Jonathan is an artist who sees life through a camera lens; and Ben is the A-student who will still never make his parents happy. The three are fast friends, and always talk about their favorite subject: girls and sex with girls. The series was based on British author Melvin Burgess' controversial novel "Doing It".

  • Great show! A shame that it was cut by ABC.

    It was nice to finally see a show from the guy's perspective. I was just rewatching the show, which kind of caused me to write this review. I miss the show and wish it would've been carried through. It was an excellent show and a very real one at that. Finally there was a show that really depicted normal teenagers' lives and what kids think, not to mention that it was one finally from the guy's mind unlike all of the other shows that follow girls 24/7. I am still mad that ABC let this show good; it definitely could've been much greater than the first 13 episodes.moreless
  • What an awesome show, really miss it. Wish we knew what Deb decided to do, the end of ep. 13 left us all wondering.

    This really was/is one of my favorite shows. I re-watch the series often, and still can't understand why ABC would axe it. The characters really make you feel apart of the story, the time-lapse where either Dino, Ben or Johnathan speak their thoughts directly to the viewer is great. Each episode was interesting, revealing different realistic problems that so many teenagers face today. Deb (Kelly Osborne) is one of my personal favorites. I really like her character, because she's the odd one out as such. Kelly does a great job at playing her also. Why this show was ever axed i don't know, nor do i understand how certain shows continue to run when something like this is cancelled. I guess we'll never know what happened in the lives of Dino, Ben, Johnathan, Jackie, Sue or Deb, after that final 13th episode. So long, LAWKI.moreless
  • One of the best shows!

    Life as we know it, is about life of teenagers. Discovering and Learning.



    I actually like this show, i think its one of the best, and one of the trendsetters (if it was continued). It maybe underrated but this is one of the short lived tv shows that should be remembered. It was cancelled very early, but i believe that the story lines and plots in the series is very realistic to teenagers. It have different problems, conflicts and happy endings. I like every characters and their attitude and how they react on the story and how they fix their mistakes. I wish this show was not cancelled.



    RIP.

  • Considering the popularity of the American Pie movies, it's a mystery why this show didn't fare better.

    8.3
    A really sweet show with characters that are easy to relate to. The acting wasn't always on par with top quality shows, but as most of the actors were just beginning, it's one of those things you can get past quite quickly. The obsession with sex and virginity, which was how this show was heavily promoted, was only a slim part of the series. Regardless, I would have thought that would have brought in far more viewers. At the very least, the actors appealing to the audience for help, advice or just understanding during critical moments made the viewer feel more involved.



    Though I think there was much potential for this show and its interesting break in the fourth wall, the plots were far too cliché and had been done over in tons of other teen shows.moreless
  • i miss this show!

    "life as we know it" was very exciting and more realistic than the other teenage high-school shows out there. It had a great cast and great plots as well. It was always fun to watch, and it managed, in the short season that it was on, to interest its viewers each time. Every character was interesting and understandable because it was as believable as a teen soap-like drama could be. The show was only getting better when ABC decided to cancel it. It is a shame that the reason it was canceled was not because it was a poorly received show, it's because of bad scheduling.moreless
