From Kevin McDonough of South Coast Today:
- CW’s ’18’ closer to ‘Gilmore Girls’ than ‘Gossip Girl’
“With so many Canadian imports arriving on American network television, I’ve devised a simple test to determine whether a show hails from north of the border. Do the characters look more like real people than supermodels? If so, look for the “Made in Canada” tag. Is the comedy writing a little less gag-driven than Hollywood fare? It just might be written by Canadians.” Read more.

“Of course, I could be wrong, and 18 to Life might not be the bottom of the television barrel, in which case you need to drive a stake through your TV’s heart, stuff its remote with garlic and bury them in an unmarked grave. If there’s something worse than a sitcom about what a laff riot teenage marriage is, you don’t want to know.” Read more.
From Mark A. Perigard of the Boston Herald:
- Newlywed Lame
“What if a couple of silly twits from â€œDegrassiâ€ decided to marry? The sitcom â€œ18 to Life,â€ the latest Canadian import to sneak onto our airwaves, plays like a spinoff of the long-running Teen Nick series.” Read more.
