Storyline

Lydia DeLucca is a New Jersey bartender who wants more out of her life than just marriage and kids. So she breaks off her engagement, and heads to college. This doesn't make her ex-boyfriend Lou happy, who thinks she is wasting her time getting an education. Her family is none too supportive either. Her mother, Dolly, thinks marriage would be better since she thinks Lydia can't take care of herself. Her dad, Frank, cares more about the New York Giants than Lydia's psych term paper. But that's life... Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

I'm going to try to watch it more often.
26 December 2000 | by llihillohSee all my reviews

I saw the pilot for "That's Life" and one or two other episodes. This is one of the best new shows to come around in a long time. I am so tired of seeing shows that have pointless writing, talent-less actors, and ludicrous topics/problems. This show has the exact opposite of all of that. The only problem that I have with this program is that it airs on a Saturday night. In my opinion, this is the worst night for television. Whenever I'm home, I will definitely try to catch this wonderful show.
