Reunion We pick up the action...

ReunionWe pick up the action mere weeks after 1993's dysfunctional Thanksgiving. The Reunion crew is ringing in 1994 with Duran Duran's "Come Undone" playing over the speakers. I get it. These characters are coming undone right before our very eyes. Craig's dealing with the chick he had the affair with. Yup, Rachel Ho... I mean Scofield is threatening to out their liaison just when he's trying to become an ass-emblyman. The girl looks like she can go from zero to Fatal Attraction in about three seconds and then has the nerve to think Captain MajorHottie would take her seriously in those present-day scenes. And how did they make her look older? They pulled her hair back in a sophisticated style with some sort of chopstick doohickey thing and dyed it darker. read more

Reunion 1993 Soundtrack: Gin Blossoms...

Reunion1993 Soundtrack: Gin Blossoms "Hey Jealousy"; Spin Doctors "Two Princes"; Soul Asylum "Runaway Train"; R.E.M. "Everybody Hurts" Craig and his lying old "I'm in a wheelchair" self showed up at Sam's grave on her birthday. Will shows up as well, and they are confronted by some kid who is glad that Sam's dead. After they awkwardly segue back to 1993, we find out that a pill-popping Sam had thought she caused his mother’s death. But we can all rest — she's a good doctor. You know how I pretty much go on and on about Sam and Will's chemistry? Well, I always feel justified every time I see scenes between Alexa Davalos and Will Estes. When Sam confessed her pill addiction to Will, it was like practice for w read more

Now that Reunion's producers ...

Question: Now that Reunion's producers have announced that there is not going to be a resolution to the murder, or any of the other story lines, why is Fox going to bother airing the rest of the 13 episodes? I like the show and will be sorry not to see how it unfolds, but what is the point of airing six more episodes of a show that is going nowhere? It seems more logical to either let the show run the whole season or to cut their losses and air something else. The audience certainly isn't going to increase after an announcement like this. I'm very disappointed in Fox for not giving the show a chance (not that I'm surprised), but even more disappointed with the writers and producers who can't come up with a bone to throw to those of us who have been watching. Answer: I think I got mail from every single Reunion fan out there in the wake of the cancellation and the producers' statement that they weren't going to be able to wrap up the whodunit by the 13th and final episode. This letter ... read more

How will Reunion tie up the ...

Question: How will Reunion tie up the murder mystery now that the show has been canceled?

Answer: Funny story. Producers released a statement Friday saying Samantha's killer will never be revealed because "the events of Samantha's murder are partially reliant on characters we haven't yet met — and events we haven't yet seen. There is no way to solve the mystery of her murder without being able to complete the full arc of our story through present day. I greatly regret that this question, along with many others that the series has posed, will remain unsolved, and I am deeply grateful for the support of viewers who share this regret." I guess that's not so much funny as infuriating.

I was a fan of Reunion, and ...

Question: I was a fan of Reunion, and while it upsets me that it has been canceled, my question is more of a general one. Why does Fox keep mishandling shows in an attempt to win the Thursday 9 pm/ET time slot? I realize that viewers on Thursday are valuable, but you'd think that after canceling every show that's been in the slot for the last three years, they'd realize that they simply don't stand a chance. It just seems like the best thing they could do is to put a quality show in the slot and let it gain steam over a couple of years. A quality show should have self-contained stories, so people can tune in every once in a while and enjoy it enough to stick around (the way Without a Trace won against ER). Reunion, though I enjoyed it, was the absolute worst choice because it required a commitment from the start, and on Thursday at 9 pm, it was never going to get one. Answer: Excellent observation. Even if the show had lived up to its very cool premise (which I would argue it didn't ... read more


Reunion's Alexa Davalos, Sean Faris and Will Estes

Reunion fans looking for some semblance of closure from Fox's recently axed drama might want to look elsewhere. Despite a week of brainstorming, show execs have concluded it simply is not possible to wrap up the central murder mystery nine "years" sooner than planned. Executive producer Jon Feldman explains in a statement, "Because the events of Samantha's murder are partially reliant on characters we haven't yet met — and events we haven't yet seen — there is no way to solve the mystery of her murder without being able to complete the full arc of our story through the present day. I greatly regret that this question along with many others that the series has posed will remain unsolved, and I am deeply grateful for the support of viewers who share this regret." Reunion's 13th and now final episode airs Feb. 2. read more

I realize that all four major ...

Clockwise, from bottom: Carla Gugino, Brian Van Holt, Charles S. Dutton, Brent Spiner, Rob Benedict, Peter Dinklage, Threshold

Question: I realize that all four major television networks share the common need for ratings and for money from advertisers, so the fact that they cancel shows left and right whenever one of them isn't getting them much in either of those areas shouldn't come as a surprise. However, it is hard to understand their reasoning when your favorite shows so often get canceled or indefinitely postponed. Threshold has been stopped officially, and the new episode scheduled for Tuesday didn't air. I made a commitment before the fall schedule began to watch at least one of the many new supernatural thrillers. I chose Invasion on your recommendation, but after a while, Threshold pulled me in. I saw all the episodes from beginning to end and I loved them. I liked it even more than I did Invasion. Now it's getting canceled. It's not surprising, but it's so disappointing. Alias is gone after this season (no shocker there, but still). Arrested Development: gone. Kitchen Confidential: gone. It's ... read more

Reunion OK, people. Didn't I politely...

ReunionOK, people. Didn't I politely ask all of you to watch Reunion? Well, ya didn't listen to me. Now the show's coming to an early end. It's bad enough that I'm already mourning the demise of Arrested Development. Now I gotta start letting go of Reunion, too. Now word has it that we'll get a resolution to this whole mystery of who killed Sam. Here's to hoping that comes true. That said, let's move on to the Thanksgiving celebration. 1992 Soundtrack: Toad the Wet Sprocket “All I Want”; Blur “There’s No Other Way”; Eric Clapton “Running on Faith” - So Jenna’s “married” to big-time action-movie star Jake Terrance. When I first saw that he was going to be joining the “six musketeers” for dinner, I was wondering if he would hit on Wil read more

I just read in TV Guide's ...

Question: I just read in TV Guide's Entertainment News that Reunion was canceled! I'm really disappointed by this news because I really enjoyed this (underwatched) show. In my opinion the whole concept and idea behind it was really well done and had been carried out nicely. Obviously, though, it was on at a horrible time and I sensed impending doom when I read that the American Idol-results show might be airing on Thursdays in 2006. I totally wasn't expecting a Season 2 of Reunion due to its low ratings, but I was at least hopeful for one full season. What happens now? Did they already shoot the 13 episodes Fox has ordered? Will Fox at least be airing all of the filmed episodes? Will we ever find out what happens? Answer: As of this moment, it's just too early to know how it will play out. It looks as if Fox will air the remaining episodes, with the finale set for Feb. 2, but the show hasn't even finished production yet (this week I was told they were still filming Episode 12), so it's ... read more


American Idol's Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Ryan Seacrest and Paula Abdul

Revealing its mid-season plan, Fox squelched talk that American Idol would be moved to a Wednesday-Thursday schedule. Instead, the series' fifth season will stick to its Tuesday-Wednesday combo, premiering Jan. 17 at 8 pm/ET. Also announced: 24, airing Mondays at 9, starts its uninterrupted five-month run of new episodes on Jan. 15 with a two-night, four-hour event; Skating with Celebrities bows Jan. 18, before moving to Mondays on Jan. 23; Bones relocates to Wednesday at 9 (ouch) starting Jan. 25; Stacked and That '70s Show move to Thursday starting March 2; and Prison Break picks up where this week's read more
