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, 30-something 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

A lot of heart with some sweet humor
2 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show may not be completely realistic, but it isn't real to begin with, so that's not a problem. You have to go into this as you would any other TV show or movie, with a willing suspension of disbelief, meaning you buy into the story and characters. If you're willing to believe, you are in for a treat. The show is light hearted, even though it deals with some dramatic issues. It sprinkles humor in with serious plots, making for a charming mix.

I really like the characters, and feel they have a great connection with each other. Lux is a streetwise kid who can handle herself, but is totally sweet. Baze is far from an ideal father, but he's completely hilarious and tries hard. Cate wouldn't seem it, but has a very maternal side, and is getting the hang of parenthood and she goes.

The show is all about learning who you really are, and who you need to become. In a small way, it actual has me looking at myself, which I think is amazing from such a young show. It's still getting its legs, but with a bit more time, this show could be something great. I think it's a nice change from other shows on CW, because it deals with an older age group, and feels less like high school.

Watch the Life Unexpected for yourself, and don't compare it to other shows, just judge it as its own show. Remember to go in willing to belief, and you might just get sucked in by its charm.
