You can see many Montreal's landmarks. IE the Orange Julep (big orange ball) in the opening theme. Orange Julep is famous in Montreal for, obviously, its sweet orange juice. Also, in front of The Veg "coffee" shop, you can see one of Montreal's parking pole. Meanwhile, you can notice the license plate on both Bellow's cars (Tom's and Ben's cars). Both license plates are from Ontario and not Quebec while it's happening in Montreal, Quebec. See more »

User Reviews

A Canadian comedy with universal teen appeal.
25 January 2010 | by ram-30See all my reviews

Michael Seater really has the magic touch with teen sitcoms. Up until now, the greatest Canadian sitcom with teen appeal was "Life With Derek"; the show was of high enough quality that Disney picked it up for its channel. Now, Michael Seater (who played Derek) stars on the next best teen sitcom to come from Canada and is arguably the best teen sitcom on the air today. Michael plays a teen newlywed married to the girl next door played by Stacey Farber. This new "Life" series is hilarious. The supporting cast, especially the four parents, are played to perfection. My favourite character is Michael's father played by the incomparable Peter Keleghan. US viewers will recognize him as Ranger Gord from "The Red Green Show". Keleghan's square-jawed good looks and comic timing make him perfect for sitcoms. Some might remember him as the pretentious boss Alan Roy in "Made In Canada". Many who know this character will find Roy Donaghy's character in "30 Rock" less than impressive as Keleghan puts Alec Baldwin to shame. I hope "18 to Life" lasts longer than "Made in Canada" did. I watched the pilot quite by accident when I turned to CBC waiting for "Little Mosque" and I have been hooked ever since. I don't watch a lot of television anymore but "18 to Life" is going to be a Monday evening ritual, just like "Corner Gas" was.
