From MySpace to prime time: quarterlife is the first online series to make the leap to a network broadcast. The show, created by thirtysomething duo Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, is about a twentysomething named Dylan (Bitsie Tulloch) who blogs about her life and the lives of her housemates. Dylan observes the world with self-aware ironic mopeyness, but just about everyone else seems vaguely bummed, too, as if distant drums had announced that a Band of Horses gig was canceled. It’s believable enough—just not much fun. Tulloch takes getting used to, but her prettiness gradually wins out over her petulance.
