Heart #15 goes to...Life Unexpected

Heart #15 goes to Life UnexpectedIt's the CW's newest hit show which has been compared to The Gilmore Girls - one of my favorite shows of all time.
 IMDB's plot summary:
Fifteen year-old Lux has spent her life going from foster family to foster family. She has finally decided to become an emancipated minor. During her journey through the legal maze, Lux finds her biological father, 30-something Nate "Baze" Bazile, who lives above a bar and is astonished to learn he has a daughter. Lux learns that her mother is Cate Cassidy, a star on local radio, along with her boyfriend, Ryan Thomas. A judge decides to grant temporary custody of Lux to Baze and Cate instead of emancipating her.

I had the first five episodes waiting on my DVR because I just had too many other shows to catch up on.  I also like to watch a few episodes back to back when a series just starts because then I can really get into it and decide if I like it.  And after 5 episodes I have decided that I really like it.  Not as much as I do The Gilmore Girls but there is one striking similarity that screams out Gilmore right away.  When Nate's parents, who are filthy rich, find out about Nate having a daughter who has just come into his life after 15 years...they insist on a family dinner.  If Nate does not comply, they take away the Bar that they gave him.  Is this going to be a running theme...forced dinners?  It's such a Gilmore thing to do.  But I do like the show and I will continue watching it.
The other thing that I love about the show is the theme song.  It's sung by a woman named Rain Perry.  The title song is called "Beautiful Tree" off of her album "Cinderblock Bookshelves".
If you click on the video at the top of the post above you can listen to the song.
DD-I know you're gonna like it :)
