Review: Live for the Moment - Roger Childs (series premiere)

Roger and Jeff Probst on Live for the moment.
(S01E01) Live for the Moment goes for the heartstrings at the first minute. In the premiere episode, we meet Roger Childs who started to suffer from ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease). Even with his body degenerating, he's managed to continue to be positive for his wife and two children. Jeff Probst arrives, hands the family a journal with several "missions" and hopes that the family will live for the moment.

On paper, the show is basically Phil Keoghan's show No Opportunity Wasted, but with a bigger budget and longer timeline. Live for the Moment is truly a combination of The Bucket List, Big Fish, and Up! The show is saccharine sweet and would have fit perfectly on the Hallmark Channel.

  • Kids with "old man's disease"
  • Drunk driving victims
  • ALS sufferers
  • Victims of home invasions
  • Amazing people with skin cancer

It also shows that you probably shouldn't use exclamation points too much, especially when you're talking about death and/or tragedy.
