Oh, this show. It started out with such promise and just devolved into this terrible mess of a predictable soapy series that was finally put out of its misery last night. Because of the abbreviated season and the rushed finale, a lot of convoluted storylines that were previously being dragged out got wrapped up rather quickly for the sole purpose of giving every character a cloyingly sweet happy ending by the close. This was not the Life Unexpected I signed up for when I watched the charming and heartbreaking pilot a year and a half ago.
It was reported the other day that The CW was only going to give Life Unexpected 13 episodes for its sophomore season, which makes the chances for a third season fairly slim. As viewers of this guilty pleasure, we just hope that the show will answer several burning questions for us while they still have time. No, not whether Cate and Baze end up together (we don't care), but the really important stuff.
It's that time of year again, when one person's (or network's) trash can become another's treasure. But instead of taking our chances on a Yankee swap of some of TV's most interesting characters, we're just going ahead and repackaging these folks and shipping them off to new homes where they might actually be appreciated.
