Question: Why don't you like October Road? Everyone I know loves it, and we are dying to find out who Sam's father is. Any hints?

Answer: I don't like October Road for the same reason I don't like getting an air-conditioner dropped on my head: It's painful. Having said that, we're in the middle of a strike and I'm desperate, so here's a hint about Sam's daddy: While we'll learn more about his paternity in these final episodes, don't expect the mystery to be solved until Season 3.
