Storyline

At a Seattle high-school, three best buds live fairly normal teenage lives, as far as horny hormones allow. Dino Whitman is the cocky one, a beautiful hockey athlete, spontaneous, a born charmer and adored by kid brother Max. Ben is the brightest academically, but comes from an over-protective home which undermines his confidence. Jonathan is the third wheel, clumsiest at everything. They have girlfriends, the main ones being Jackie Bradford, Dino's counterpart in popularity and temperament; Sue Miller, Ben's girl, except for a phase with teacher Monica; Deborah 'Deb' Tynan, odd and unpopular enough to 'match' Jonathan, but as unforgiving as Jackie, while her mother Mia has an affair with Dino's dad Michael, and his ma Annie even worse, with ...

Hope It Lasts!
15 October 2004 | by robc-11See all my reviews

There have only been two episodes of this so far, but I am hooked already! Kudos to ABC for presenting a teenage drama that does not sugarcoat teenage issues or pretend to moralize. I look forward to seeing what develops in the future. I knew guys (and girls) just like this when I was in high school. Sex, drugs, drinking, parties...yes, parents, it all happens. This is very well-written and developed, and I hope it can escape the axe. ABC needs to give this show a chance to build a fan base. I also enjoy "The O.C.," but it is more fantasy escapism. "Life As We Know It" is more edgy and real. Also, Kelly Osbourne is such a natural actress! I am impressed with her acting and I love her character.
