  1. I’m a little worried at the moment but trying to be optimistic as I’ve heard Life UnExpected isn’t doing too well in ratings? I really hope this isn’t the case, I’m hoping it’s going to be ok because it’s one of the only shows I really adore watching and cannot wait til I get home on a Wednesday to watch the new episodes, I just find it such a good show and I don’t want it to be in trouble.

    I’m definitely glad about Glee though, it definitely gets better.

  2. Life Unexpected is a great show. I’m hoping it gets a pick up too. I usually watch it online a few days later – which is actually what a lot of people do I think.

  3. I miss Roswell! I was an old school Shiri fan, she is the reason I wanted to watch the show 🙂 I do love Life Unexpected (Even though I’m a bit behind right now) It’s so old school WB that’s what I love about it! It reminds me of all of those amazing WB shows back in the day and it has some great music too! I hope the show lasts.

  4. I couldn’t agree more Alexa. It definitely feels like old school WB. Those were the best shows. 🙂 Roswell, Dawsons Creek, Everwood, Jack & Jill… I miss them. 🙂

  5. Yes all those shows were so amazing! I miss them too 🙁 I think I pretty much lived on WB Shows back then. I honestly don’t remember watching anything else haha
