Show Summary

Quarterlife is a web series that briefly aired on NBC as a tv show and is now available on YouTube and MySpace, about a group of twenty-somethings coming into their own and enduring a 'quarterlife crisis. The group of friends includes Dylan (Bitsie Tulloch), a writer who starts blogging about her life and friends on Quarterlife, a social networking site, and her roommates Debra (Michelle Lombardo) who struggles with anxiety and works in a hardware store, and Lisa (Maite Schwatz), an actress and bartender who starts singing for a band despite self-esteem issues. They also hang out with next-door neighbor Jed (Scott Michael Foster), a filmmaker recently done with school, Danny (David Walton), Jed's roommate and business partner, and Debra's ex, Andy (Kevin Christy), who also works with Jed and Danny, and Eric (Mike Faiola), a friend from Debra's past who visits and ends up staying because of his attraction to Dylan. Dylan's friends aren't happy when they find out that she's been blogging about their personal lives, but in order to keep their support system alive, they'll have to overcome their reservations. As they try to make it through their careers and complicated relationships, the only things that might be able to get them through a quarterlife crisis are their friends.

From the creative team responsible for My So-Called Life comes a drama about six 20-somethings trying to find their way in the world. Initially quarterlife launched on MyspaceTV.com in November of 2007. After an initial airing on NBC, quarterlife has been picked up by Bravo where the remaining 5 episodes will air.


    quarterlife bombs, moves

    • Don't bother getting hooked on this show--online or otherwise.

      I liked about the first four or five online episodes of this show--which turned out to be ONE tv episode (the pilot). There really is nothing to look forward to. The cast gets all jumbled by about the 3rd hour's worth of eps and the writing gets even worse thereafter...not to mention the acting, which becomes even more atrocious as the series drags on (that guy who plays Eric should really find another profession). Any tv network--network or cable--that airs this lemon must be really fresh out of quality productions! This show is NOT going to save that mess the production companies got themselves into called the writer's strike. I've watched up to "part" 34 (online)...just to see if it would get better...and judging from next episode's preview, it doesn't. It's just more of the same boring "storyline". When I hear they bring back Jed and/or Debra and get rid of Eric and Vanessa (nothing against Majandra Delfino), MAYBE I'll consider watching again from that point.moreless
    • Funny, real life stuff

      I like the pilot episode, it promises a lot as a real life show and the characters are similar to what you and I have as friends in reality. So guys, just enjoy it, because it is obvious it is a show about us :).

      The characters are well designed, the plot is intriguing enough, we see people with normal issues trying to find their place in the world ... so it's inspiring.

      Those of you who are so eager to dismiss it, I really hope you are neither too old to remember your young years, nor too boring to have had a real life at that age.moreless
    • Very close to reality but with a twist of artistic sparks. Every single character has something that reminds me of someone I know or myself.

      The show is amazing, the cast, the script, the production is really original and simply beautiful. This are situations that we see today in our world, the characters are genuin. Everyone can relate to them in so many ways. Dylan's character is fascinating becuase she is very unique and at the same time very scare of life, love and everything. My heart goes out to Debra because she has not yet taken control over her own life and destiny. She is in her twenties and she does not know who she really is and how to stand up to her father or boyfriend. Lisa's character is the most depressing of all because she is so beautiful yet she does not think she is beautiful. She thinks she has nothing amazing in her and its very sad.moreless
    • Characters, plots, premise.... all boring

      Quarterlife seemed to have so much potential. I was unaware of this show when it debuted online, but upon reading the recent reviews, I was very excited to check it out. However, halfway through the first episode, I find myself doing anything BUT watching the show. The characters are not engaging at all (ironic, considering one of the plots revolves around one of the main characters being a bad actress). Even though these characters are my peers, I find the show entirely unimaginative and downright boring. If I wanted to watch twentysomethings pine over boys/girls they can't have or mope about their dead-end jobs, I'd talk to my own friends!! When I watch television shows, I want an escape from that dull reality.moreless
