Trivia

The show was canceled after only its second season, and the final episode left many questions unanswered. To give the fans closure, the producers wrote a 10-minute epilogue, paid for its production costs out of pocket, and the main cast members agreed to come back and film these scenes without pay. "Road's End: the Final Chapter" answers fans' questions, including the identity of Sam's father, and was released as a bonus feature on the second season DVD. See more »

Keep October Road! too Early to hit the Road
12 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

While October Road is not one of my all time favorites I still give it an 8. It has a good cast of believable characters who for the most part seem pretty real. There are so many awful shows particularly Reality Shows that I watch very little TV. This show held my interest and made me want to come back each week to see what would happen next. And believe me when I say that now days this is a rare thing for me. The writing may be a little weak which is why I gave it an 8 as some of the story lines have been a bit unbelievable and the characters not given enough depth but the actors have done their best to make it work. The veteran actors are really talented and the new faces were good characters who seemed very real. I do not think this show has been given enough time to gain an audience. I believe that given more time this show will do very well. Once again ABC is not giving a show with real potential a real chance. With so many loser shows given so many chances they need to give decent shows a real chance and time for the show to really click and gain an audience.Watch this show on ABC videos if you have not seen it yet and let ABC know they need to give it another chance.
