Loved it, 15 September 2009
Author: wishlistjones from United States

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.
