“Life Unexpected” is a new tv show that I was recently introduced to.  It looks like a really cute show and I’m excited about watching a few of the full episodes available online.  The next full episode airs on Monday, February 15th, 2010 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.   “Life Unexpected” will return to the 8:00 PM ET/PT once “Gossip Girl” returns on March 8th, 2010.

You can find “Life Unexpected” on Facebook as well!  Check them out today!

The show premiered in January and so far has received rave reviews from critics with People.com proclaiming that The CW has “another hit on its hands with ‘Life Unexpected.'”

The show centers on Lux (Britt Robertson, “Swingtown”), who, after spending all of her 15 years bouncing from one foster family to another in Portland, Oregon, she decides it’s time to take control of her life and become an emancipated minor. Her journey through the legal maze of emancipation leads Lux to her biological father, thirty-something Nate “Base” Bazile (Kristoffer Polaha, “Mad Men”), who is astonished to learn he has a teenage daughter. Baze owns a bar and still lives like an aging frat boy with his two slacker roomates, Math (Austin Basis, “Life on Mars”) and Jamie (Reggie Austin, “The Starter Wife”).

It’s Lux’s turn to be astonished when Baze reveals that her mother is Cate Cassidy (Shiri Appleby, “E.R.”, “Roswell”), Baze’s high school nemesis with whom he had a one-night stand. Cate is now a star on the local “Morning Madness” radio show, along with her partner and fiancé, Ryan Thomas (Kerr Smith, “Dawson’s Creek”). Lux has been listening to Cate’s voice on the radio as long as she can remember, so she feels an instant connection with the mom she’s never met.
