Amazon.com

As much as many adults yearn to "go home again"--to return to the place of their childhood and somehow magically return to a simpler time of close friendships and few responsibilities--the inevitability of change ensures that that homecoming will never be as simple or utopian as it seems. Best-selling novelist Nick Garrett (Bryan Greenberg) returns home to the quiet town of Knights Ridge, Massachusetts after a 10-year absence to find his friends and family disappointed and angry with him because of his prolonged, silent absence and his unfavorable characterizations of them in his novel. Nick struggles to reconnect with his closest childhood friends, but things have changed for them all: Physical Phil (Jay Paulson) has become a shut-in after the events of September 11, 2001 and refuses to leave his home, Owen Rowan (Brad William Henke) is now a devoted husband and father, Eddie Latekka (Geoff Stults) owns a landscape business and holds a powerful grudge against Nick, Ikey (Evan Jones) is stuck in a dead-end job shoveling mulch, Nick's old girlfriend Hannah (Laura Prepon) has a 10-year old son Sam (Slade Pearce) whom Nick suspects may be his son, and former outsider Ray "Big Cat" Cataldo seems to be the most successful of the group as the owner of the town's biggest construction company. While the past is a powerful bond that rekindles old friendships, even repeatedly returning the group to a make-believe stage where they lip-synch and play air guitar to their favorite songs, their relationships with one another are intrinsically changed. Add in Nick's complicated attempts to make a place for himself as an educator at the local college under Dean Etwood (Penny Johnson) and cultivate a new relationship with his student Aubrey (Odette Yustman), and life becomes incredibly complicated. October Road is a powerful drama that explores the passage of time and the power and limitations of friendship through a rich cast of characters. --Tami Horiuchi

October Road may run short of the "Drama" of some of today's other shows, but that is why it's so good. No one is being murdered or raped, 14 year olds aren't sleeping with their teachers, and people aren't being blown up. There are very few shows on TV today that are both interesting and appropriate for anyone, especially for teens. When Gilmore Girls went off the air after 7 wonderful seasons, I thought it would be a long time before a wholesome, but exciting and interesting show was on again. October Road is that show. Watch it!

October Road is one of those shows, that when you start watching it, you can't stop. It has a great storyline that keeps you asking for more. Only Issue I have is that there is only six episodes in the first season. I hope that they continue to make this show, it would be a pity if they stopped.

There aren't many shows that can put the main character in such a place as they do in October road, and succeed. This show is wonderful. It leaves you wondering what's going to happen next and it always leaves you guessing. The book that the show is based on is great as well. I recommend that if you have seen the show that you read the book. This is defiantly worth getting if you're a true Byran Greenberg fan. It was also just announced that they're bringing October road back for a second season according to Bryan Greenberg's reps.

I recently watched the entire first season on SoapNet. This show automatically drew me in. It took my whole Saturday, from 12-7pm, because once I watched the first episode I couldn't stop watching! Just absolutely loved it! Can't wait for the second season and I'm seriously thinking about buying the first season. October Road is definitely a MUST SEE for people who enjoy these types of series!!!

"October Road" was not suppose to be a hit. It wasn't even suppose to be a series. After filming the pilot in the winter of 2005, ABC initially passed on the series during their selections for a fall line-up. But in January of 2007, in a last minute decision (and in desperate need of new material with the up-coming writer's strike) ABC greenlite 5 additional episodes. And then something crazy happened. The show premiered and over 14 million people watched its first season.

"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.

I absolutely LOVE October Road. I just purchased a copy of Season One for my friend's birthday hoping she will get as hooked as I am! The characters in the show are like people you would really know. You really get involved in their lives and really care what happens to them. I always feel such strong emotions while watching....and you gotta LOVE all the music in each episode!

For me this series started out like Grey's Anatomy.Interesting but not phenominal until late in the season when enough time passed to do a better job with character development. Now it's one of my favorite shows, right behind Grey's Anatomy and Brothers and Sisters.
