This Life was created by Amy Jenkins and revolved around a group of young lawyers sharing a house. Debuting in 1996, it drew attention for its rather relaxed attitude to sex (especially homosexual sex) and drug taking.
Milly: Solicitor, in a relationship with Egg. Cheats on him with her boss.
Egg: In a relationship with Milly. Starts off as a solicitor before quitting and getting a job in a cafe.
Miles: Barrister, bit of a dick. Secretly in love with Anna.
Anna: Barrister, her desire to succeed is matched only by her ability to screw up. Secretly in love with Miles.
Warren: Barrister, gay, loses his job over an incident in a public toilet.
Ferdy: Motorcycle courier, somewhat confused about his sexuality. Has a one-night stand with Warren and rejects him. Moves into the house when Warren goes abroad.
A ten-year reunion special was broadcast in 2006. Reactions were less than positive, with most feeling the special was a poor shadow of the original series. The fact that the plot, which had the cast going to stay at a country house in the aftermath of a funeral, was a little too close to the plot of ''Peter's Friends'' didn't help matters much.
!!This show contains examples of the following tropes:
* AllGaysArePromiscuous: Warren.
* BlondesAreEvil: Rachel and Delilah.
* Gayngst: Warren
* HeyItsThatGuy: Egg is [[Series/TheWalkingDead Rick Grimes]], Miles is [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Commander Norrington]].
* ManChild: Egg.
* ManipulativeBitch: Rachel
* MegatonPunch: A particularly famous example occurs in the finale.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted, Warren sees one on a regular basis. Egg also visits one.
* TheSnarkKnight: Anna, so very, very much.
* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: TheNineties. Not as bad as some. But the usual dodgy haircuts are there.
