Tv Season Info

Season One of the CBC situation comedy "18 to Life" follows the upbeat and humorous experiences of Tom Bellow (Michael Seater) and Jessie Hill (Stacey Farber), an 18-year-old romantic couple who get married right out of high school, on a dare, and ultimately move into Tom's parents' attic. Their parents reside next door to one another, and couldn't be more different; hers (Alain Goulem and Angela Asher) are liberal, non-religious free-thinkers who don't believe in marriage; he is the son of a conservative Jewish judge (Peter Keleghan) and a homemaker mother (Ellen David). The first season includes such adventures as the couple's efforts to find a residence, an accident where all of the parents get trapped in Jessie's father's garage, Jessie's mother's fight with an angry postman, and Tom's complicated efforts to help a single friend establish a relationship with a girl who interests him.

There's nothing even remotely that interesting here.

The show isn't very funny, which makes it all the more difficult to swallow.

Granted, it's a familiar twist on coming-of-age comedy, but one graced with a light touch -- at least, beyond its initial premise.

The show is basically a Juno ripoff in sitcom clothing.

Unfortunately, 18 to Life is not about exploring our attitudes toward marriage or anything much.
