I'm on episode -- sorry, "webisode" -- nine now. The phrase "it's like Christmas in April" popped into my head. Exactly what I need, exactly when I need it: angsty twentysomethings grappling with romantic entanglements and daunting life goals. And while the series has its flaws -- including a weird lack of diversity and too much conventional beauty -- the concept of a well-made Web-based television show really pleases me, and Quarterlife bears it out enough to have more or less addicted me. Life's funny -- if I hadn't woken up at 4 a.m. today and spent the next four hours awake, I might never have thought to check this out. Thank you, insomnia!
