During her journey through the legal maze, Lux finds her biological father, 30-something Nate “Baze” Bazile (Polaha), who lives above a bar and is astonished to learn he has a daughter.

    I can’t wait until ‘they’ start making more shows for grown-ups. No wonder I don’t have cable and read or toodle around on my Mac – most shows are for teenagers.
    Don’t even get me started on the reality TV crap. *ick*

  • fresh

    I predict this will be cancelled after 2 episodes.

  • Alyssa

    @fresh: WORD

    Are we supposed to buy that Shiri Appleby who looks 25 has a 15 yo daughter ?? FAIL !!

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o l

    …`i wonder how many episodes will air before it’s canceled. LOL

  • sus

    The blond girl looks exactly like Michele Williams (the actres,not the singer)

  • MAC

    This should be a movie instead of series.
    lol i wonder how long before it got canceled

  • Mileena

    @I n F a m o u s l y C o o l: Ha!!!!! so true!

    OMG Shiri Appleby is still alive =O

  • marla

    Maybe you all should try to watch this show first before declaring it to be
    failed show. Lauren Graham was not that old to play Alexis Bloedel’s mom either because they look more like a sister. But the show works.
    This show have not started yet and you all are eager for it to get cancelled why don’t you all watch it first before you judge THAT’S WHAT A ALL SMART INTELLIGENT PEOPLE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO.

  • mickey

    All these people look the same age.

  • plew

    It looks good but I don’t know if a series can be made of this. They should have done a mini series. Remember when tv did mini series?

  • Liv

    Looks more like it should be a miniseries or movie instead of a show. I am fond of Shiri from her Roswell days, though. Lets hope they don’t jump the shark and try to have the 2 parents have a romantic storyline. That’s a show-killer, just like the guy playing the dad.

  • Cali

    I remember I used to watch Roswell. I’m glad I get to see Shiri Appleby and Kerr Smith work together again.

  • jeff


    marla,thank G-d for you. can you believe these ignorant people? they havent even seen it and they already have it cancelled.. i work on it and believe me when i tell you.. and them.. it’s great!!

  • s

    I’m with u! Let’s give it a chance at least!

  • http://justjared Robin

    Go Jeff and Marla, other negative people please read the reviews! Many critics who have seen a few of the eps are raving about it. Please be open and let quality tv in to your homes before slamming it.

  • jeff


    thanks s and Robin, nice to know there are intelligent , open minded people out there.along with the naysayers who haven’t even seen the show.

    JARED LOVED THE PILOT, AS DID E’s KRISTIN and so many more

  • midnytgirl

    yeah, glad to see shiri appleby again! about time.. love her in roswell! but it’s true, this robertson girl looks older than shiri, why they didn’t get a girl who looks younger? but still, good luck on this show! good luck liz parker! :)

  • jeff


    THX s and Robin.

    critics love what they’ve seen. they at least had sense to see the show before stating their opinions.

  • http://justjared Robin

    @Jeff, best of luck with the show. I really hope it is a big hit. It’s different from what the CW has on now and it’s great to offer viewers various types of shows to get hooked on.
    From a fan of Gossip Girl, Melrose, 90210 and NOW Life Unexpected!!
    Cant’ wait.

  • Liz86000

    Shiri was in Roswell, and Kerr in Dawson & Charmed. They never worked together I think.
    I’m SO glad to see Shiri Appleby on tv again! They didn’t use her enough in ER. She’s a wonderful actress, so I bet she will make the “I have a 15 years old daughter” thing works. I don’t usually watch CW shows now, but I’ll watch this one!

  • Lara

    I’ve watched the pilot. It’s absolutely amazing!!!
    It’s a great show.

  • nicole

    @Lara: where did you see the pilot i would love to see it

  • pup

    Idiots. They can’t friggin’ cast. No way that girl even looks like them.

  • me

    No way would a white, girl baby not get adopted. No way!

  • nat

    @marla: I agree with you. In my opinion it looks really good and it seems as if it has potential. I don’t think the parents look too young. They supposedly had the child young. She looks [the mother] as if she was 30, maybe she had the child when she was fifteen (that happens people).I don’t know, I’m going to give it a chance. It looks better than the current shows on the CW. (Gossip Girl is the biggest trash I have ever seen and don’t get me started on 90210).

  • RaisingChild

    Shiri Appleby is playing the mother?

  • jeff


    Thanks Robin and all the smart people who are open minded.

    anyone who misses this series will be missing something terrific.

  • jeff


    Yes, and she ‘s perfect

  • Chef Jacke

    Sounds like a bunch of sh!t to me!

  • JJJ

    The show looks amazing and those who have not seen it yet should just wait before commenting. I am sure the show and cast will surprise us all and it will be a hit with everyone that does not watch reality crap.

  • K

    just because Kristin from E! and some of you like it doesn’t mean it’s gonna be a hit, that doesn’t how TV works people !
    “quality” doesn’t mean anything on TV.
    this show belongs to abc family as a tv movie.

  • marriagematchmaker

    Wow, life is perfect

  • Sophia

    That pale-skinned, blond hair, blue-eyed child could never be their child. They’re too dark to have produced that child.

    PS. A blond-hair/blue-eyed caucasian child is very much sought after, and would’ve been scooped up from the adoptin agency.

  • Stone

    I’ll tell you what. Why don’t I just go in my closet, pull out me 357, and blow my friggin head off.

  • christine

    In regards to the whole age and genetics controversy I’ll just comment that some people take this wayyy too seriously. It’s tv people NOT reality. Just take it for what it is pure entertainment and give it a chance!

  • aget

    a pack of fashionable people

  • Lara

    I haven’t read your comments. Just want to say that it’s a terrific show!
    I need episode 2 now, to stop watching the pilot once and again.

  • nicole

    @Lara: how did u get too see the pilot i wanna see :(
