A Chasing Life X-Mas – Drama and Hope in One Package!

HALEY RAMM, ITALIA RICCI

Chasing Life has quickly become one of my weekly go to shows and as usual ABC Family has yanked a program off the air with a ridiculously long two and three month breaks. The pauses aren’t as bad now thanks to their 25 Days of Christmas promotion that features holiday themed episodes of all our favorite programs.

The Fosters X-Christmas Special – The Kiss that Can’t Be Missed! #TheFosters

TERI POLO, SHERRI SAUM

Recently, I discovered ABC Family’s The Fosters on Netflix and immediately fell in love with the multi-cultural family drama about an interracial lesbian couple’s struggles raising a large family of adopted kids.  It has become one of my new obsessions. After a drama filled mid-season cliffhanger, the show returns this week, as part of ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas promotion, with its very first Christmas Episode.

Late last week, Melissa Joan Hart, who directed the special, sat down to talk with a group of fans and bloggers about the episode.

Chasing Life S1 Ep 9 What to Expect When You’re Expecting Chemo Preview

ITALIA RICCI, MARY PAGE KELLER, STEVEN WEBER

Here’s a promo for this week’s episode of Chasing Life. I think when the show returns, after it’s summer break, I’m going to have to start recapping it when part 2 launches in the winter. It’s quickly become one of the few shows of the summer that I really look forward to every week.

This week, various secrets come out and we start to see some of the fallout as April prepares for her first Chemo treatment. Up until now the show has remained surprisingly light considering its serious topic, but I suspect things will go dark when it comes back. Two more episodes until it goes away until the winter. Have I said recently how much I HATE how ABC Family’s schedules shows? Chasing Life airs Tuesday nights on ABC Family.

Brand New The Fosters, Switched At Birth and Chasing Life Promos

FostersCallieSophia

I was addicted to Switched At Birth for the first three seasons, but got out of the habit due to ABC Family’s god awful scheduling and penchant for pulling shows off the air for months at a time.

My new obsessions are The Fosters – a great little show with heart  and their Tuesday night cancer drama Chasing Life.  I was a little skeptical about getting involved with ABC Family again since they rip out my heart EVERY SINGLE TIME by not giving shows a chance to grow. I’m hoping they stick with The Fosters and Chasing Life but I seriously doubt they will. I refuse to go down the Pretty Little Liars circle jerk rabbit hole.
