Yesterday I started watching Life Unexpected, a new series on the CW. I like to describe it as alternate reality Gilmore Girls. Like, what would've happened if Lorilae had given Rory up for adoption instead of keeping her and raising her in a small town surrounded by colorful characters. Answer: Lorilae would be played by Shiri Appleby instead of Lauren Graham and she'd be this famous radio DJ engaged to the gay guy from Dawson's Creek. Oh and Christopher would own a bar instead of a motorcycle. Oh and they'd all live in a big city instead of a small town. Oh and Rory would be blonde and she would've never been adopted because of a hole in her heart and she would've grown up in a series of foster homes where no one ever loved her or took her to overdose on coffee at Luke's.

So what do I like about this show? It's cute, and heartwarming, and also heartbreaking at times. And I love all the characters. And despite the repetitiveness of some of the episode plotlines, I can see why they're necessary to start with. There's a lot of teen pregnancies on TV shows lately (Glee, Friday Night Lights, Secret Life, etc) ... and we've got the options: abortion, adoption, keeping it. And it's nice to see a show that deals with how it all plays out fifteen years down the line.

I don't want to spoil it. It's a good show. Probably one of my current favorites.

Then there's Chuck...

The latest episode of Chuck has caused quite a revolt on the Internets. And after watching the episode, here are my thoughts: cut for spoilers... )
