  • Another good one

    In this episode of Life Unexpected, the following happens. With Lux still upset over Bug leaving, Baze asks Jones to take her out. And so he arranges for Jones o take her to see Tasha. Although it doesn't end well when Lux learns that she has been set up.

    Cate and Ryan have to pretend as though they are still a couple, and it gets awkward when they have to host a wedding expo together. And things go from bad to worse when Math and Baze both turn up. As the episode ends we see Ryan and Baze making peace, at least for now.moreless
  • Ryan and Cate now pretend their engagement is still on and to top it off they have to host the cities Bridal Fair this weekend. Baze thinks Ryan is sticking his nose in his business with Lux too much. Both Lux and Cate are messed up!moreless

    Angst reaches a fever pitch as Lux gets upset because people have the gall to try and make her happy when it's none of their business if she's happy! Cate continues to snowball in her relationships down a hill of lies and nothing it seems she does will get her out from under the avalanche.

    On the other hand we have Baze, Jones, and Ryan who all in their own way are trying to make things better. Baze misunderstands Ryan's intentions and causes another scene at the radio show at the Bridal Fair. This time he drags Math along for the ride. The other "rotten" thing he does is try to help Lux feel better so he arranges to have someone who already likes her do something nice for her. The cad! Ryan for all his faults is trying to understand where Cate is coming from, but she keeps opening her mouth and inserting her foot in it. Unfortunately as he admits later he may be hooked too far already to ultimately back out. Cate just doesn't know it. As far as Jones is concerned he doesn't know you can't be truthful with Lux as she is mistrusting of everyone. So when he fesses up about his deal with Baze she gets angry with him for really no reason.

    Unfortunately I think this is it for me and Life Unexpected until it comes out on DVD. The CW in all its wisdom has moved it up against Chuck and the comedy hour of How I Met Your Mother and Rules of Engagement. In this three way race it loses. I'm hoping as the story moves on we can get past the same old subjects and move on to new and different problems. Until they do I think Life Unexpected can expect not to be too great. Thanks for reading...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Ryan: (referring to Cate sleeping with Baze) You wanna be honest? Then you tell me why you did it. Why was he worth trashing our relationship?
      Cate: God, Ryan, he wasn't, it was stupid, it was a mistake. I don't even know why I did it.
      Ryan: Yeah, you don't know. If you risk everything, everything that we had on something stupid, some mistake, then you're even more screwed up than I thought. No, don't bother trying to fix us, Cate. You just fix yourself.

    • Lux: (referring to Jones taking her to see Tasha) You know, Bug never would have done anything this thoughtful.
      Tasha: Not true. He would have driven you a stolen car.

    • Cate: (reading the agenda for the bridal expo) Ballroom dancing, bridal photo shoot, newlywed game. What, no practicing for the wedding night to dial this day up to completely inseparable?
      Alice: Okay, let's think more bubbly bride, less unbridled bitch.

    • Cate: You can't realistically expect Ryan and I to keep pretending to be engaged and in love when our entire relationship has fallen apart.
      Alice: What I can't keep doing is changing the show to match your latest crisis. I'm not even a producer anymore. I'm a janitor. I mopped up the Lux thing, the engagement thing, the Baze thing...with corporate and our audience, and now everyone loves Cate and Ryan, the happy couple. So until further notice, that's who you are. K?
      Cate: Right. I made my bed, now I have to lie about it. Awesome.

    • Lux: You're asking me out? Like on a date? Why?
      Jones: What do you mean, why? Cause I want to go out with you.
      Lux: Well what do you have in mind? I stand in the cheering section at one of your games? We share a milkshake at the Dairy Hut?
      Jones: Don't hate on milkshakes.
      Lux: You know what I mean. You're Abercrombie. I'm the foster-freak bong girl. There's an inherent compatibility issue.
      Jones: Really? I thought it was a classic story. Boy meets bong girl, boy tries to kiss bong girl, boy awkwardly asks out bong girl.
