  • Maybe Dino's immature and occasionally unlikable, but I'm ready for a TV teen who isn't a better, more knowing human being than I am. Show More

  • If all teenage boys think about is sex, sex and more sex, then the producers and writers of "life as we know it" have captured the teenage boy perfectly. Show More

  • All the actors do well. They can't do good, however, because they're in service of an obnoxious show. The surfaces look inviting in life as we know it, but there isn't a lot of show there. Show More
