Storyline

"Living in Your Car" follows the winding karmic adventures of fallen corporate exec, Steve Unger, who was caught cooking the books and now finds himself legally forbidden from working in any position that involves "other people's money". Clinging desperately to the last vestige of his former self - his luxury sedan - Steve hopes to begin anew. Shunned by family and friends, under court order to teach an ethics class to other "fallen angels", Steve now makes his home inside his luxury car. Propelled ahead by his needs and whims, trying to simultaneously help and exploit everyone he meets, Steve attempts to survive in the land of the have-nots and at the same time somehow resurrect the charmed life he once had. Written by George F. Walker, Dani Romain and Joseph Kay

This show has my attention.

Living In Your Car is a show that has had me going since the first episode. Steve Unger's (John Ralston) utter disregard for the law and his immoral corporate nature provides a sort of hero-worship for his character. While the rest of us in the real world really do have to follow the letter of the law in business (though some of us causing it to bulge at the seams), I warm up to his character out of a shared taste for success and the attitude, "This is my business. I can do whatever I want with it".

Though I suspect some may find disgust and pity in his character, I absolutely love the character Steve Unger, even though he's lost his wife, daughter and home. He does however still have his car, which of course lends its hand in the title of the series since most nights, he sleeps in his car. The fact that he has the vision to rise back to the top is in some way inspirational and it's hilarious how he can both grovel and insult someone at the same time.

John Ralston, who is clearly a seasoned actor, gives the character Steve Unger a sense of reality. He reminds me of Corbin Bernsen in the late 80s and I don't just mean his looks, but his style. I sincerely mean that as a compliment as it is just that style that is perfect for his character. Kudos on this series thus far (Episode 6).

I also enjoy the fact that this series was filmed in my home town. You'll catch me trying to find landmarks!
