Product Description

From executive producers including Darren Star (Sex and the City, TV's "Beverly Hills, 90210") comes RUNAWAY, a thrilling series about an ordinary American family facing extraordinary danger. Wrongfully accused of murder, successful attorney Paul Rader (Donnie Wahlberg, The Sixth Sense, TV's "Band of Brothers") has taken his wife and children (including Dustin Milligan, TV's "90210") on the run. Living as fugitives and constantly changing identities, they have learned to become anyone - and trust no one. The Raders have started over yet again, this time in a small Iowa town. As they try to avoid the authorities, uncover a deadly conspiracy, and deal with suspicious neighbors, trusting each other will be their only hope ... and their greatest risk. They're about to realize that nothing is more twisted than trying to keep your story straight.

Amazon.com

The Fugitive meets the CW network in Runaway, a 2006 TV series that melds the innocent-man-in-the-lam theme of the former with the teen-young adult appeal of shows like Beverly Hills, 90210 (as well as older WB offerings like Dawson’s Creek and Felicity). The pilot episode sets it up, as Washington lawyer Paul Rader (Donnie Wahlberg), accused of a murder he swears he didn’t commit, has decided to try and elude the long arm of the law as he searches for the real culprit. So far, so Fugitive--except that show’s Richard Kimble was on his own and moved from place to place each week to avoid capture, while Paul decides to settle down in neighborly Bridgewater, Iowa, to establish some sense of normalcy for his family, including wife Lily (Leslie Hope) and their three kids (two of them high-school students). The succeeding episodes (there are nine altogether, offered on two discs sans bonus material) do a nice job of conveying the constant strain involved in this dicey undertaking, wherein every situation is a fragile web of improvised lies, every interaction is fraught with peril, and even having their picture taken might expose them to the U.S. Marshals who are in hot pursuit. This being a CW show with a strong 90210 connection (elder son Henry is played by Dustin Milligan, now a 90210 regular, while executive producer Darren Star works on the latter program as well), we also get a large dose of high school angst, from illegal drinking to various tortured teen relationships, all set to a soundtrack of "edgy" pop music. None of that is especially new or different, although the eventual resolution of Paul’s plight will surely take some viewers by surprise. The network canceled Runaway due to low ratings--odd, really, as there’s certainly enough here to hold most viewers’ attention. --Sam Graham

"RUNAWAY" was a thrilling series created by Chad Hodge and was executive produced by Darren Star ("Sex and the City", "Beverly Hills 90210', "Melrose Place") that began airing on CW (when the network just began) and unfortunately, due to a bad time slot, didn't receive good ratings. So, originally planned for 13-episodes, nine were filmed and only three aired in the US (while in Europe, all nine episodes were shown).

The series revolves around the Rader family. A family of five that has moved from town-to-town and changing their identities after Paul Rader (Donnie Wahlberg), a successful attorney wrongfully accused of the death of Erin Baxter, who worked at his law firm (and the series shows that the two are close). But the killer sends a package to his wife Lily (Leslie Hope) that their children Henry (Dustin Milligan), Hannah (Sarah Ramos) and Tommy (Nathan Gamble) will be next.

To protect the family, Paul and Lilly have moved from around as fugitives and settled in Iowa. Henry is a high school sophomore who is not too happy with his father and doesn't even know if his father committed the crime or not. He is unhappy that he has to be separated from his girlfriend Kylie (who lives in Maryland) and does whatever he can to communicate with her. Henry must pretend that he is a twin of his sister Hannah despite being a few years older.

As for Hannah, she was a social outcast in Maryland but now in Iowa, she's recreating her life. She starts to fall for her jock and neighbor, Brady.

As for Tommy, he is the youngest of the family and at 8-years-old, having to juggle identities and living another life is becoming difficult for him.

I was hooked on this series immediately when it was on tv. Great cast, great thriller premise, great setup. So I was happy to see it released on dvd. Disc one is great. Disc 2 piddles around for a bit forgetting what the show was about and wanting at times to be the typical (but not bad) CW teen relationship show. Then it was as if the writers were told "you have 5 minutes to wrap up the show and 10 minutes to shoot it." So, pissed off, they ended it. Really it would have been better not to try. The ending is completely out of sync with the show & while it does wrap up one loose end, it does so in a way that makes the rest of the series nonsensical. Glad I didn't buy this one! (Checked it out from the library.)

A very short-lived show that will have you hanging in on every episode (perhaps not number 8 which doesn't really move the story along).

Some great scenes where you expect one thing and get another.

Highly recommended -- at least with a conclusion, though quick, at least concludes the series. Similar to the super "Journeyman"

I loved this show it was too bad that it did not survive. I was looking forward to finding out where the characters were heading. And what new adventures unfold.

Explores issues within the family faced with adversity. The storyline is exceptional when it comes to the children. No matter what problems they faced, they managed to pull together instead of apart.
