Reunion 1 -1 (Spoilers)

The first episode of Fox's new show for a thursday night "Reunion" has shown up.
This drama/thriller has an interesting premise as it focuses on a group of six friends.The first episode starts off with a funeral of one of the friends (we don't know which one) who has been murdered,before flashing back to 1986.
The show advances a year every week for the 20 episodes with more revelations in the present day.
There is a lot of different emotional material going on between the six friends and as one of them says in the present day,1987 was worse...
The show is soundtracked by the songs of the year and I'm sure there will be several Pop culture references along the way.in episode 1 one of the characters compare Wham to the Beatles,saying that people will compare Andrew Ridgley to John Lennon in 20 years time!
I certainly enjoyed this and will stick with it when it appears,though it may not start till January...

I thought it was boring! Not nearly enough happened to make me want to watch another episode.

Am I right in saying Jewel Staite plays Carla? She's so lovely!!

That's my fanboy post of the day I liked this btw, up there with Kitchen Confidential and Bones for potential ones to watch this autumn from the screeners which recently surfaced online.

I was really impressed with this. Intriguing idea, good looking cast & great music ... In fact as i'm of a similar age to the characters, it felt really nostalgic listening to all those cheesy 80's songs & probably the main reason I liked it so much.

Definitely a show i'll be watching once it airs.

I'm enjoying this -- of all the new dramas, the premise of this one is holding my attention the most.

Episode three. It isn't the best of programmes but the murder plot has grabbed my wife and I enough to stick with it for a little longer yet.

Is there any point bothering with this - starts in about a min on E4 - seeing as it got canned early on?
I assume there was no denouement?
