What's so great about October Road?
What is all this talk I keep hearing about saving October Road? Is it really worth saving? I watched about as much as I could stand and I really didn't see anything worth fighting for.
First, let's look at the premise: Small town boy comes home and tries to re-assimilate into his old ways. Sounds like an unfunny version of Ed. Besides, Nick seemed to be pretty much back in the groove by the second episode.
Speaking of Nick, let's look at the cast. This small town has more beautiful people than an audition for The Real World. Sounds like a boring version of One Tree Hill. I understand that many people enjoy the small town life but at some point wouldn't Laura Prepon's character realize that she's hot enough to be a successful actress?
I simply can't understand why interesting, well acted shows like Drive, Andy Barker P.I. and Raines get little to no recognition but October Road is the show everyone wants to save. Somebody clue me in.
By the way, I was doing a little research on the show and IMDB suggested that if I like October Road I should also check out Salem's Lot.. I guess because they are both about a bunch of "suckers."
