Made to contrast the average, glossy style of young American television, Quarterlife stands alone. The show is brilliant; using unknown actors, subtle, seemingly improvised dialogue, and characters that are familiar to all of us, this show gives feels like a reality show that is actually good, actually real. The subtle, yet dynamically layered performances by the amazing cast gives hope for the next generation of young actors. I find myself feeling like I'm sitting right in the living room with these kids as they ponder their futures, careers, romance, principles, and everything we think (or thought) about at 25. If you're a fan of "My So-Called Life", "Once and Again", or any other show that chooses realism over slick production, or just seems to have the right amount of heart and soul, you've come to the right place.
