CW’s “Life Unexpected” might be an unexpected hit and seems to be a critics’ darling. The family drama focuses on a teenage girl who was given up for adoption and returns seeking parental permission for emancipation as her 16th birthday approaches. Unknown to her biological parents — who conceived as high schoolers with Spin Doctors’ tunes in the background — their daughter was never adopted but has lived in a string of unpleasant foster care homes. Of course, drama ensues.
