Why You Should Be Watching Life Unexpected
Don’t miss the critically-acclaimed CW show, Life Unexpected!! Lux (played by Britt Robertson), is a 16-year-old foster child who connects with her biological father, Nate (played by Kristoffer Polaha), a manchild who never knew he had a daughter. Nate teams up with Lux’s mother, Cate (played by Shiri Appleby), to give Lux a normal family life.

The above flyer is brought to you cortesy of @Luxfans on Twitter who you can contact at the above email if you’d like a copy or have any Lux saving ideas. The leader of the ‘Save Life Unexpected’ campaign on Twitter. I here am a big fan of Lux (As fans often refer to it.) having recorded it on a whim when it premired back in January this year. And I loved it. First off, they’re NOT the perfect family; not by a long shot. But their problems aren’t overly dramatised, they’re handled much like you would see them handled in real life. And it’s funny too. And way to cute and adorable. While the character dynamics aren’t to hard to understand, they seem a lot to comprehend when you try to sum them all up at once. Much like describing all your friends and their relationships with each other to a new friend or relative.
To you (the fan) the Cate (Yes Shiri Appleby of Roswell fame!), Baze, Ryan love triangle might not seem to complex, until you factor in the fact that Baze is the father of Cate’s illegitimate daughter, Ryan is her cohost (or ex-cohost if you’re caught up on season 2) and now her husband but she still has feelings for Baze but Baze has let her down before and frankly Cate can barely handle one daughter; what’s she to do with a man who hasn’t grown up yet? Might seem complex to other people.
Then Lux has her drama,
Baze has his roommates.
And Cate just tries to deal with life.
Don’t worry not all these secondary characters are in every episode much like you’re friends aren’t around every day of your life. (Unless you’re one of those rare people who always has friends around 24/7.) But the show is so worth it once you try it. Here’s some clips and promos to prove my point and don’t forget you can catch up on season 2 of Life Unexpected on cwtv.com and season 1 on itunes with a new episode tonight at 9/8 central. (Dvds will be availible in January 2011.) Happy watching!
