Storyline

Fifteen year-old Lux has spent her life going from foster family to foster family. She has finally decided to become an emancipated minor. During her journey through the legal maze, Lux finds her biological father, 32, Nate "Baze" Bazile, who lives above a bar and is astonished to learn he has a daughter. Lux learns that her mother is Cate Cassidy, a star on local radio, along with her boyfriend, Ryan Thomas. A judge decides to grant temporary custody of Lux to Baze and Cate instead of emancipating her. Author Written by Josef

Brilliant!
22 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

Love this show!

Watched Shiri in 'Roswell', Kerr in 'Dawson's Creek' and wondered if they could pull it off as a couple. They do.

Shiri's character Kate is forced to face the child she gave up almost 16 years ago. Lux (Brittany) has spent those years bouncing through the foster home system and she's excellent as a young woman who struggles to fit into this new family.

Rafi is perfect as Bug, Lux's boyfriend who struggles with many issues himself.

I've not seen Kristoffer's previous work but he's great as Lux's father who's struggling to be a father as he grows up himself.

Each week's episode brings me to tears, sometimes of joy and sometimes of sadness - then I have to wait another week for the next episode!

I will be buying this on DVD - love this show!
