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 »
It's no Emmy winning show but it does the trick. I know I like it enough to come back for more. The top thing it has going for it is the attractive cast. The story is a bit Been there done that style. Yet, it has a such a great quality to it that brings me back to the days when television was Innocent to me. So to me it a wonderful show that has charm and quality. I do agree the other comments about the quality of the pilot was good. I to agree that it is one of the better Pilots I have seen. This show does need to be given a chance. I believe that it will generate its following over time. You know some of the best TV shows were once thought to be flukes.
