Storyline

Ben and Mary have been a devoted couple since their college years in the 1960s. They shock their friends and teenaged daughters when they send out invitations for their wedding--everyone had assumed they had been married for years. Their wedding brought old friends back to town, like Barbara, who doesn't want anyone to know that her rich husband is divorcing her. She and old friend Peter, who doesn't seem to be going anywhere, begin an affair. And single dad Joey and old friend Jane draw closer. Written by stanbrown32

Loved it
15 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have gone through the onerous and draconian process of registering with IMDb just so I can say that I truly missed this series when it got canceled. I loved it and I loved the premise of it. As we regain contact with those with whom we grew up in this Facebook age, I can see us confronting all sorts of issues that we thought were cut and dried as teenagers (gosh, do they have the moral high ground.) That's exactly what these people were confronting: issues that had arisen that they never thought could happen to them, failing to meet expectations, changing potential, coming to terms with life as it happened rather than as you dreamed it to be. They were learning to live with the realization that potential was something you had in college, reality was now. Just my two cents worth.
