Tuesday, January 18, 2011: Life Unexpected

Oh, Life Unexpected, I'd be sad to see it go ... if all I'd ever watched was the pilot episode. The show has been on a fast moving downward spiral since then and is finally coming to a complete halt tonight in a two-hour (yes, two-hour) "event." To me, event usually conveys that this is something special. It isn't. It's just that the CW had two hours left of this show before it gets put out of its misery and they figured they'd waste a Tuesday night in the middle of January, before sweeps starts, airing it so that the two people watching it (including, sadly, me) will get some sort of resolution to these poorly written and unoriginal storylines.

Presumably they'll deal with Cate and Ryan's band-aid baby, the fact that Lux has been hooking up with her teacher (which is done far better on Pretty Little Liars), that Baze is too dumb to realize that Anya from Buffy used to sleep with his dad, and someone will explain why they decided that Math was a good nickname for Matthew and if they were going to call him Math, why the writers didn't decide to make him teach algebra instead of English. And Tasha and Ryan's sister will likely just be annoying at some point, because that is both of their character arcs summed up in a nutshell.

If you are the other person still watching (Hi!) the show is on at 8 PM tonight on The CW. Fair warning you might want to bang your head into the wall (like Lux is in the picture above) after watching. Just in case you want to have a friend on standby in case of head injury.
