The mortuary where the dead roommate's ashes were taken was called "Steadlawn Mortuary" an anagram of "Wasteland" - gallows humor since that was the last filmed episode and everyone on the team knew the show was about to be axed. See more »
I saw this show on network TV when it came out. I tuned in because Kevin Williamson wrote it and I think he's great. I was expecting the worst--a show about whiny 20 somethings--but I was pleasantly surprised. It was written and acted and had (for TV) a realistically played gay guy (Don Montgomery Jr. was great--and very handsome). Also the scene where he came out to his friend was (for TV) pretty bold. He tells him when they're taking a shower at the gym! U get a look at a extras butt and Montgomery ALMOST shows everything when his towel swings off. To be honest I'm surprised they got away with that. And his friend is very accepting. Just great.
It was pulled due to low ratings--they SAID it would return with changes. Naturally we never saw it again. No classic but very good. Worth seeing--if you can.
