Miss Free & Easy in here... surprisingly makes The Client List look like a... Lifetime TV show
22 June 2017 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I was in awe of the pilot episode of TIME OF YOUR LIFE. Jennifer Love Hewitt was almost the entire show, much like the Sun is almost our entire universe. She was the focal point of every scene bar one in the pilot. And she is this soft, very soft, silky angel, this San Francisco girl in the much harsher New York and so, so obviously not New York material, really more designed for some cozy suburb in some large town.

Yeah, I am that guy posting quotes for TV shows that haven't been released on DVD, hoping to show YOU UNINFORMED LOT out there what you have been missing. TIME OF YOUR LIFE is a failed TV show that shouldn't have failed, but it did so spectacularly, so much so that it is ridiculed. Not by me. Take one look at the pilot. I love her, I love Jennifer Love Hewitt, I love Sarah, I love the pilot episode, I love "The Time She Came To New York"... But this is the third episode, and much of the magic is gone.

I do not have access to the second episode, no sign of it on the Net, I have to contend myself with what I can manage to download. So, watching this one, I am already at a bit of a loss. But you do become increasingly aware that sweet little Sarah from PARTY OF FIVE is prone to doing inane little things, no, not silly laughable things we could giggle about tomorrow, but the kind of stuff that could have serious consequences, like, she's going through life like a ball-chasing dog running on the highway. There was no sign of this in PARTY OF FIVE, you could say that it was simmering, and I would of course say that it was inspired by that dweeb that Bailey became more and more with every passing episode, but you could also say that the scriptwriters are simply taking liberties with the character. Sarah is highly susceptible to every possible bad influence that comes her way, from overdoing the tippling, to being unable to steer clear of that mecca of the lower class, the tattoo parlor. A girl like Sarah is pictured here, would very quickly be swallowed up by the Big City and be every bit as grimy as it is.

By the third episode, it's very noticeable that Sarah isn't on the screen the whole time anymore, and she is already slightly less cute than at the kick-off. It's too late for me to speak up, it's something that happened eighteen years ago...

It might interest you to note that I would have placed more quotes, but with this particular episode, many lines kept having "anatomical references" which, in my experience, wouldn't go down well with IMDb. I have enough trouble with that already.

Despite early warning signs, it is still considered by me to be one of the worthiest glamour-filled titles (it's mega-cute Jennifer Love Hewitt, for crying out loud!) to front the list of what should have been available on DVD. JLH has legions of fans and it would have sold. Big time. Maybe not to the Bailey-obsessed PARTY OF FIVE core group so much. (Blegh, Bailey!) But to Jennifer Love Hewitt fans around the globe.

One more time all together now: Wow, what an angel! Sigh.
