Quality and price were both excellent. Can't wait for Season 2.
"October Road" while not a great series by any stretch, is definitely a worthy addition to ABC's lineup. But unfortunately it has the fatal flaw of thinking that it is much more original and better written than it really is. The characters are likeable enough, but they are all characters that we have seen many times before, and the series has yet to add anything new or fresh into the mix. And the same can really be said about the premise of the series. The main idea is that "you can never go home again," but this is a theme that is continuously used in the latter years of long running series. But "October Road" fails to be as poigagnt as it wants because their isn't enough emotional investment with the characters that is required for the storylines to be particularly impacting or emotional.
But alas, what ABC has presented here are 6 very well produced, acted, and edited episodes that together make up a first season of a series that shows promise, but needs serious work (and with the season 2 ratings being half of its premier audience, they need to work fast).
The series itself focuses on a young author, who returns to his hometown for the first time in nearly a decade.Read more ›

|Invitation to the October Road Reunion||
I can't wait for the reunion. This show was cancelled way before it's time. It will be fun to talk and reminisce about the Road.
