Side Order of Life

Another one of Lifetime’s big new fiction series pushes is Side Order of Life, focusing on a gal photographer who is coming to crux moments in her life, with a friend dying and a wedding impending. She starts seeing things that aren’t really there, the world speaking directly to her in various ways. And through all this that’s going on, she learns that Life Is Special and you have to Hold Out For Happiness and other official watchwords of the have-it-all woman. Sappy and pretentious. Early on, I turned to my wife and said “I’m not who this is made for.” She concurred for herself. So, it’s not just testoserone.
The funny parts aren’t funny and the touching parts aren’t touching, but if you’re a dissatisfied career woman who needs to hear that life is special, and better TV doesn’t do it, then this is for you!

  1. I had the same response. I had to turn it off after five minutes. Awful — or, as you say more kindly, just not for me.
