“Life Sentence” is a fictional Netflix original series created by Erin Cadillo and Richard Keith. The first season of the drama show came out on March 7, 2018, and the shows main cast features Lucy Hale, Elliot Knight, Jayson Blair, Carlos PenaVega, Brooke Lyons, Dylan Walsh, and Gillian Vigman.

The show is based around a girl named Stella Abbott who discovered she had terminal cancer at the age of 16 and lived with this diagnosis for 8 years. The uncertainty of whether or not she wass going to make it inspired the idea to live every single day as if it were her last and make every single day count, but when she unexpectedly discovers her cancer is cured, she and her family must learn how to live normally again. Stella must rediscover herself and her whole family, so she can try to carry on with her life after years of believing that she didn’t have much of one left.

This whole show I thought sounded interesting, at first. I was hooked in when I first read the plot summary and after I discovered Lucy Hale was the main character, Stella, because she’s an actress I previously liked in the show “Pretty Little Liars”.

But after I started to watch the first few episodes of “Life Sentence” to do this review, I unfortunately discovered that I would get bored of it easily and it was difficult for me to continue watching because it simply didn’t hook me in enough to keep me interested for long. It was almost predictable what would happen, and I have found I like to watch things that have a lot of plot twists and cliffhangers because those are what really suck the viewer in, so they almost can’t stop themselves from watching.

I wouldn’t exactly say the show is bad though, but I don’t think it’s for me. It just depends on who’s watching and what different people are into, but overall, in my opinion I don’t think it’s worth the watch.
