Trivia

October Road (2007) 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 »

Refreshing and titillating
12 July 2007 | by roffer98See all my reviews

With so many copy cats, knockoffs and duds out there it is so nice to come across a show with great content. Too bad this show is not getting the same executive support as Heroes for example.

For those that get the subplots and subtle allusions there is clearly much more going on with these characters than meets the eye. This isn't just another WB show - it has more to offer. It brings back the kind of writing that one came to expect from Twin Peaks, but with a more engaging and alluring cast.

Losing this show would be a mistake - not giving it better exposure and a better time slot will greatly reduce the ROI for this show! The executive that decided to air this show should show some moxie and follow through - your instincts were right on this one!
