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 »
WRT schoeny99's comments, I have to disagree with the music thing. But, it's entirely relative to personal experience. I am pretty much the same age as the characters and I loved Kurt Cobain and Nirvana - yet my vinyl collection includes Boston, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, etc. Most of my friends and I thrived on classic rock. But I recognize not everyone does that and some only listen to Top 40 pop and rock...so not understanding the mixture of Kurt Cobain and Boston would make sense.
My high school friends and I were remarkably similar to the October Road group and I think that cast-wise, this show's great. There's always the people who leave town to make something of themselves and have an awkward return. There are those who never leave town...some get married, some don't...some hold grudges, some don't...you get the idea.
Compared to a lot of other shows on television, October Road is a bit more realistic (not completely, as prime time television is rarely a mirror of reality) and I'm enjoying the direction it's taking. Looking forward to see where it goes...
