What We Might Not Be Watching: Life Unexpected


If you visit the 411 on Soaps often, you know we are big fans of the CW and it’s many prime time dramas, as long as they are worth the hype. Such shows include Melrose Place, 90210, and Gossip Girl. That list may not include upcoming Life Unexpected, which is supposed to appease us until our regularly scheduled programming returns. It isn’t that the premise is so ridiculous, it’s the actors’ ages I can’t begin to take seriously in correlation with the storyline. A young girl is put up for adoption and goes in search of her real parents, whom she finds, they offer her a stable home….yada, yada, yada…

However, there is a plus to this show, Kerr Smith is in it, which prompts my interest to be peaked.

So, the moral of the story is: If you like light drama with a feel good twist, this may be the show for you. We, however, might be sitting this one out. Tell us what you think. Leave us a comment below!
