Hillary's TV Tuesday

I got hooked on a show that was steamy and suspensful the first season so I kept watching . . . season 2 got more and more corny and stupid and uneventful but I kept watching because I WANTED to see how it all turned out (plus the writers strike made me watch lots of stupid shows). Just as I was about to quit the show completley, October Road delivered a season finale that was phenomenal!! I mean, who knew that big tough Eddie Lateka (left with Janet) would get the crud kicked out of him and that Janet would be the one to cheat. But, I knew all along that Big Cat was responsible for Eddie's beating - Hannah is in for a serious train wreck there. I did sort of think all along that Aubrey would end up with Ronnie but for him to come out with his feelings at Hannah's engagement party and then they kiss in public?! wow. This might just be the thing to drive Nick back to his world tour with U2. I still love physical Phil and Pizza Girl, that is too cute. If you love this kind of drama and some good flash back 80's tunes (the last scene was set to REO Speedwagon's "Roll with the Changes" now playing) you NEED to tune in - next season that is.

Hi there! Thanks for not giving up on October Road! It really has evolved so much, especially Eddie's character!

It was announced recently that there is a 50/50 chance for a third season of October Road, and it mostly depends on us, the fans to bring it back. Below is a link to the abc October Road Message boards. You will find many resources to help save the show as well as many other OR related posts. I hope to see you there! We can do this! We have had a huge response so far!

We have also launched a "Pay October Road Forward" campaign to recruit new viewers, since a lack of viewers is why it's future is unknown. I really hope to see you on the boards! Please spread the word!

Who was that? Is she crusing the blogs to see if people love O.R.? I really tried to give this show a try when it started, but I just couldn't hang in there. Based on your totally thorough analysis, I guess I really missed out.

I hope it makes it back for a 3rd season-I love this show! Although I preferred season 1 because they played more 90's music, which I thoroughly enjoyed-although I was glad that they brought back the classics with REO Speedwagon.

I think I stuck with it too because it takes place in Massachusetts (my mission) and before I knew that, while I was first watching, I thought hmmmm this show could really be in Mass what with the cool old houses, small town, coooky characters, even the bar is totally authentic. Someone from Mass is involved in this project, I guarantee.
