Storyline

At a Seattle high-school, three best buds live fairly normal teenage lives, as far as horny hormones allow. Dino Whitman is the cocky one, a beautiful hockey athlete, spontaneous, a born charmer and adored by kid brother Max. Ben is the brightest academically, but comes from an over-protective home which undermines his confidence. Jonathan is the third wheel, clumsiest at everything. They have girlfriends, the main ones being Jackie Bradford, Dino's counterpart in popularity and temperament; Sue Miller, Ben's girl, except for a phase with teacher Monica; Deborah 'Deb' Tynan, odd and unpopular enough to 'match' Jonathan, but as unforgiving as Jackie, while her mother Mia has an affair with Dino's dad Michael, and his ma Annie even worse, with ...

Great Writing, Great Cast
14 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Yankees weren't playing, so I was flipping around and caught this show. Now, there have been many films/shows about hormone-driven high school boys.

What sets "life as we know it" apart is the writing. The dialogue and story lines are both funny (the one guy whose parents accuse of being chronic masturbator) and heartfelt (Dino's mother's affair). The performances from the three leads are top-notch: Foster is much improved from his brooding turn in "Door in the Floor," and Faris, who looks like Tom Cruise, Jr., is also a fine actor. With his looks and acting ability he is probably poised for superstardom.

The friendship that the three boys share is really at the center of this show. While on the surface it may seem like it is only about sex, most viewers will be able to see that this show is really about surviving adolescence in America and "getting by with a little help from your friends."
