This past January, fans of WB-style soaps had to say goodbye to one of their favorite shows: Life Unexpected. The series followed a girl named Lux (Britt Robertson) as she got to know the biological parents who gave her up for adoption: brainy morning show DJ Cate (Shiri Appleby) and charming slacker Baze (Kristoffer Polaha). As time wore on, the show got more melodramatic — dark secrets! revelations of sexual abuse! affairs with teachers! — but it never lost the heart that won a small, dedicated number of viewers over in the first place.
Now every episode of Life Unexpected is available on one DVD set, which is curiously called “Life Unexpected: The Complete First & Second Seasons” rather than “The Complete Series.” While this alone doesn’t mean the show might be coming back from the dead, it’s enough to get us thinking about what might have been. And, as a bonus, if you think about it too, then tell EW what you would have liked to see in a potential third season of LUX, you could win one of 10 copies of the series on DVD.
