'Life Unexpected' - 'Crisis Unaverted' Recap

by Hemal Jhaveri, posted Mar 2nd 2010 11:20AM
Life Unexpected (S01E07) Perhaps this episode should have been called 'Comeuppance Received'? Tensions between Cate, Ryan and Baze boiled over and for once, Cate is the one who messed up royally. I've said before that it's been hard for me to connect with Cate and see past her grating Type-A exterior. But even I winced at the epic dumping she got from Eric. It was deserved, but brutal.

And Cate's early attempt to whitewash her whole affair looked even more petty in wake of the serious drama Lux was going through with Tasha. The kid had a tough time this episode, and sadly, only Baze was really there for her in the end.

The CW's mid-season drama, 'Life UneXpected,' will debut on Monday, Jan. 18 as a temporary replacement for 'Gossip Girl,' in an effort to combat the ratings slump 'GG' suffers during its cycle of post-sweeps repeats.

According to The Futon Critic, the freshman series will moonlight for 'Gossip Girl' for a number of episodes before moving to the 8 PM ET Monday slot, currently occupied by 'One Tree Hill,' to complete its run in the spring.

Why I'm dropping Justice

Finally! TNT&G loses a case! And the client--a kid, even--is wrongly accused! Unfortunately, it came too late for me. Last night, as I sat down to write my review of "Crucified", I realized that I loathed the idea of watching another episode of this show. Even though it has been on hiatus for three weeks because of baseball, I did not miss it one bit. As I watched, I realized that I hate this show. And I mean hate.

But as an aside-- was the acting and the writing in this episode especially horrible, or what? The parents of the victim were given AWFUL, generic lines that they delivered without emotion ("Have you been driving my car again? I told you not to!") and the attorneys' dialogue between each other was way too expositionary. I think this episode was written to catch up new viewers.

Here's why I'm no longer watching/reviewing Justice:

Fox orders three more Justice scripts

justice castJerry Bruckheimer's newest crime/law drama is not dead yet. Reuters reports that FOX has ordered up three more scripts for the series. Justice, starring Victor Garber, has regularly finished fourth in its time slot on Wednesdays at 9 pm (even behind reruns of Lost- ouch!). Late last month, Fox announced it was putting Justice and Happy Hour on early hiatus ahead of the World Series. That didn't look promising for either show, but at least Justice gets to take another swing at the viewers. No word on the fate of Happy Hour.

Even though I really want to see Kerr Smith and Victor Garber be successful, they can do better. Justice is already predictable... and enough with the handheld cameras!

Justice: Addicts

(S01E04) I really enjoyed Tom Nicholson's (Kerr Smith) storyline in this episode. We get to see his weaknesses as he loses sight of his job when his relationship with a client clouds his judgment. Plus, someone else gets to try a case for once.

The episode opens with a man falling from a skyscraper and then the shaky camera work begins. This week's victim is Daniel Benson, son of legendary studio head Scott Benson. The victim's girlfriend, Molly Larusa, is missing. The two were dating in rehab, which is where Benson plummeted to his death. TNT&G fits into the equation because the missing girl's father is their client, Frank Larusa.

Justice: Behind the Orange Curtain

(S01E03) Good opening sequence. We see a guy strangle a girl, then learn it's on a film set, and then we see it's a reenactment for smarmy American Crime. A chick named Beth, who is about to be married, disappears after getting a ride home from a bartender, Jake Garcia.

Garcia has some good evidence against him. He lied to the police about giving Beth a ride home, her sweater is in his car, and so is her blood (which he says came from a cut to her foot). It looks like the cops are going to ambush Garcia at TNT&G offices, but Ron Trott (Victor Garber) turns the tables by parading his client in front of the media and offering a $1 million reward for the safe return of Beth, who may or may not be a runaway bride.

Press Kits Unwrapped: FOX's Justice

by Anna Johns, posted Aug 22nd 2006 2:09PM
justice; press releaseFirst off, let me say that I am very jealous of the sweatshirt that Keith got from the Prison Break press kit. Since I'm covering Justice this season, Keith sent its press kit all the way across the country to my house. FOX didn't quite go all out with this press kit the way it did for Prison Break. No newspaper. Just a stack of office paper with bios for the actors, including a pathetically short bio for Kerr Smith, and a letter from the law firm instructing me to watch the pilot on DVD (also included).
