Did anyone catch this?

I was intrigued by the premise, so I did watch the premiere. The 80s soundtrack and outfits made me think I was watching an evil version of The Wedding Singer. There were also a lot of plot twists in an opening episode, which were happening before I could even remember the characters' names.

I do like the idea of a murder mystery planned out over 20 episodes. It's also impressive how they changed Chyler Leigh's look from 1986 to 2005-the characters age from 18 to 38 over the course of the show.

I watched it, liked it and so it'll probably be cancelled. But it does have the O.C. lead-in so maybe it will survive.


The cast is good except for Amanda Righetti she didn't even look like she was 18, it seems like they cast her for her for Jenna's future self. While everyone else looked like they could be 18 especially Chyler Leigh she looked younger than 18 really. And she really looked like she was 38 too.

It's a interesting concept and it has some good music too. I'll watch it again next week. And it has Keith from Six Feet Under as the Big Black Sex Detective. :)

I didn't see it, but I gotta thank you for alerting me to this show. I'm a sucker for murder mysteries and people who starred in "Not Another Teen Movie." Heck, I watched "Murder in Small Town X."

Now with SD on Friday, I can tape or watch Reunion, so I think I will.

I'm rooting for this show because I want to see all the upset people when this show never comes out on DVD because of the licensing of the music.

I didn't watch. I was kind of disappointed at it being heralded as a ground-breaking way of storytelling when Showtime did this basic concept with a show called "Leap Years" that lasted all of one or two seasons (2001-2002).

I watched the first episode and I'm hooked. Not only is there a mystery about who the killer is, but they didn't even reveal who GOT killed yet, did they? We know Carla is alive because of her being interrogated but other than that any of the other five could've been the deceased. Either Will or Craig probably has to be the favorite based on what has gone on between them.

I was worried about getting actors who could look young and old. As already said, Chyler Leigh looked great, but Amanda Righetti didn't. Judging by their IMDB profiles Alexa Davalos, Dave Annable and Sean Faris all look pretty adult-like, but I don' know about Will Estes, he has kind of a baby face, but like I said before, he might be the deceased and they wouldn't have to worry about an older version of him.

I'm glad to see Will Estes getting work though, I was a big fan of American Dreams and when the show got cancelled I was worried not a lot of them would get a whole lot of work.

The funeral and investigation just happened...in 2005. That means we get a full season of whomever died, all the way through their mid-30s.

I loved the show. Of course I'd watch if it were just Amanda Righetti reading the phone book.

Or Chyler Leigh or Alexa Davalos. Neither of them are bad choices.

Fox in my area last night decided to show 1986 again instead of the new episode. How annoying.

Well, 1987 is going to be shown next week. It was pre-empted by the President's speech.
