Reasons to Save Life Unexpected From Cancellation

6 Reasons Why Life Unexpected Shouldn't End

The following excerpt was written by ShaynaLeah on OnSugar blog Life Forward.

I've never felt the need to campaign particularly hard for a television show to be saved (though I was pretty bummed when Moonlight was canceled as a casualty of the 2008 writers' strike), but today's rumor that Life Unexpected may not be picked up for another season has me stricken for a whole slew of reasons (and only one is that its cast includes the adorable Shaun Sipos, formerly of the ill-fated "new" Melrose Place).

The top six reasons to watch the free episodes online to catch up and start watching Life Unexpected on Tuesdays on the CW:

  1. The storyline — which centers around teenage Lux (Britt Robertson) reconnecting with her birth parents who gave her up because they themselves were teens — is a different look at the American family, as well as the epilogue of the choices that pregnant teenagers face without being preachy.
  2. The dialogue between parents Cate (Shiri Appleby), who is notoriously uptight and insecure, and Baze (Kristoffer Polaha), who is just as notorious for being laid back to the point of sloth, is smart and hysterically funny.
  3. While there are plenty of television shows that trot out tired love triangles (the married man and his secretary, the man who falls for his brother's wife, etc.), watching Cate decide whether to marry Ryan (Kerr Smith), her boyfriend and co-anchor on a morning radio show, after Lux and Baze re-enter her life for the first time since she was 17 is, well, interesting. There is no clear "right" answer which makes me want to keep watching the show to see what will happen next as the layers of each character are explored. Laid back Baze has some really great points, but Ryan has always been a good guy — though Cate recently found out that while she was having cold feet, Ryan had his own doubts before their wedding.

I LOVE this show and am also bummed it is being cancelled. It almost seems dumb to even get invested in any new shows because the networks cancel them like nothing :0(

agree, the show has to come back, it's honestly one of the best, most accessible shows on the CW right now (save maybe HellCats). but it shows a real teenager, real family dynamics and is just a really great well written show. i hope they rethink their decision and give it another chance!
