  • Wonderful

    This was an amazing show. I found this on Neflix and just had to watch both seasons as a marathon. I started to watch it because of Shiri Appleby and continued because it was so wonderfully written. I loved all of the actors even though sometimes some of the characters seemed a bit dull and stupid.



    All in all this show was touching. Ending sucked though. Everything was all wrong. I'm just gonna imagine a different ending and maybe then this show is a 10.moreless

    Life unexpected really a great show and have enjoyed watching all episodes/both seasons on the great netflix. Anytime you have show that makes you happy then sad, angry then not is a great one. But I have come to regonize that lots of excellent shows that get canceled are mostly because of not having enough diversity which is a shame but that is how main stream TV is these days.
  • The pilot was good

    5.0
    The pilot was good. I watched the second episode and started to find it boring. This could have worked as a movie, but not as a TV show. I found it a bit sappy after a while. I know that the CW has started a new type of show, rather than intense dramas about people that backstab each other and sleep with each other's boyfriend and shows that are reboots of the 90210 franchise, but I just don't enjoy this show. I don't think this is the kind of show that will still be good and keep its storyline for more than a half season. It's just going turn into a bad version of 90210 after a few episodes of family problems.moreless
  • Life Unexpected is one of my new favorite shows. Besides the fact that I always loved Shiri Appleby since Roswell and knew Kerr Smith from Dawson's Creek you can see how Shiri and Kris react and figure out how to raised a child they never met 'till now.moreless

    Is a very interesting show, with old and new faces. It shows something more than other shows. You can see how families can be so different but still there's love, trust, respect etc.. I Love the show since it started how this girl wanted to live her life alone, never depending on parents. And how at the end she can´t deny she is so happy to find her mom and dad and how even she had another life before and another family she still wants to have them in her life. Its a lovely show I hope they get a 2nd, 3rd or more seasons.moreless
