It seems that unless a show has some sort of talent competition or stupid people doing stupid things it cannot stay on the air anymore. This country is turning into a vast wasteland. This was a great thought provoking show, it’s too bad the TV execs at the CW don’t see it. Well that’s another hour that I will not be watching TV, you lose CW, Well at least NBC didn’t cancel Parenthood (yet), so I will turn the set on @ 10 PM.
Anyway, at least now I have the DVD to remind me that good TV exists for a little while anyway, and I can watch Life Unexpected anytime I want to, while the rest of you watch Snookie do stupid things. I’m happy about that.
As always, Warner Brothers did a nice job with this release, it has a slipcase and an “Amaray” style case that holds the six discs. There is a booklet that provides a synopsis, original airdate and the writer and director of each episode. The audio and video are top notch, as with all Warner Brothers TV on DVD seems to be. As far as I can determine, music has not been replaced, and there is no mention of it anywhere on the packaging, so I assume everything is the same as it was broadcasted.
I think had the show been able to continue, it would have gotten more interesting, but considering the last season was not a full season by CW standards, it was wrapped up nicely. Good TV is hard to come by, maybe in syndication this show will find the audience it deserved. If not, pick up the DVD, you can’t go wrong with this one.
Now, I’m waiting for WB to release the final season of Everwood, which IS coming out on August 2nd – and includes and alternate ending! That is going to be good.
