October Road is set in the fictional town of Knights Ridge, Massachusetts. The show was co-created by Scott Rosenberg, who wrote the movie Beautiful Girls (1996), which was set in a town of the same name. The show is said to be based in part on the reactions of Rosenberg's own Massachusetts hometown to the way it was depicted in the 1996 movie. See more »
I stumbled across October Road after watching Grey's Anatomy last Thursday. The only reason I even glanced twice at the show was because I love Brian Greenberg. I wasn't immediately hooked from the first moment like I was with Grey's Anatomy but it was definitely one of the better pilot episodes that I've seen in my life. I'm going to give it a chance. Plus, it lucked out with that time slot. Being right after Grey's is going to help it a lot I think. I hope that ABC will it give it a chance to grow because the story lines are interesting (even if they have been done before). Everyone wonders if it's possible to really go home again and October Road is attempting to answer that question. Overall, worth the watch and I'm looking forward to seeing where they take it. Plus, the soundtrack was pretty awesome in my opinion.
