NBC has given its drama "Life" a vote of confidence with a full-season pickup. I don't know anyone who watches the show, but feel free to comment here on why you enjoy it. My original review was mildly positive. The order is being described as nine episodes or the balance of the season (since no one knows how long the writers' strike will last).
NBC has also given the same order to "Chuck," which I have grazed on from time to time. No word on "Journeyman," which I also like for its time-travel element but hasn't done a decent rating. The other two shows haven't done a gangbuster rating either, but NBC wants to give them more time.
