    Reunion: Thursdays at 9pm EST

    REUNION marks a groundbreaking concept in series television as it chronicles the lives of a group of six friends over the course of 20 years -- all in just one season. Part character drama and part murder mystery, REUNION tells stories of love and loss, marriage and death, triumph and scandal as it depicts both the hopes and dreams of 18-year-olds as well as the realities that mark those lives two decades later.

    WILL (Will Estes) longs to leave his small town behind. Aided by an athletic scholarship, he is the first in his family to go to college. CRAIG (Sean Faris), handsome and privileged, looks forward to the Ivy League with his girlfriend, SAMANTHA (Alexa Davalos), whose ambition is surpassed only by her looks and intelligence. The beautiful JENNA (Amanda Righetti) dreams of becoming an actress, and behind his cynicism, AARON (Dave Annable) dreams that his relationship with Jenna will go beyond friendship. CARLA (Chyler Leigh), innocent and quirky, must choose between loyalty to her father and staying near her best friends.

    REUNION opens in the present day at the funeral of one of the friends, whose death is being investigated by DETECTIVE MARJORINO (Mathew St. Patrick). Before the identity of the deceased is revealed, we’re transported back to 1986, as the group is celebrating their high school graduation.

    The pilot episode follows all six through the summer of 1986, and we witness the formative events that alter their dreams and desires forever. Episode two finds the group a full year later, in 1987; episode three tells the story of a seminal event in 1988, and so on -- culminating in the season finale as the friends celebrate their 20th high school reunion.

    REUNION also will build toward answering two important questions raised in episode one: Which of the friends is dead? And who is responsible for that death?
    This first episode has been very, very impressive!

    The casting is wonderful... with Michael St. Patrick, Chyler Leigh, Amanda Righetti (she looks so different!), Will Estes, and Sean Faris reminds me of a young Ben Affleck (just a better actor.. heh.)

    Another win for Fox.

    I caught this tonight, too Broadway, and I like it! I like it. I'll keep watching it, I think.

    I'm a sucker for the 80s, and I like the soundtrack!! I could get hooked. I'll tape it, at the very least, 'cause I believe there'll be some Show Discussion threads on Thursdays that I'll want to catch here.

    I hope the ratings are good! Or else it'll go the Wonderfalls-route.

    Great cast, although they did not live up to their full potential in the pilot. Excited for next week!

    It took me a while into the episode to start feeling it, but by the end I was in a hurry to see the next one. So I guess I'll be watching it

    I think this show is awesome. It is definitely something that got me hooked as soon as I heard the concept. But when i watched it, i thought it was better than I expected.

    I absolutely love it. I think the concept is really cool, and this is going to be my one drama that I'll get into and become addicted to. I can already tell. Something about it just sucked me in last night, and I'm already ready for next Thursday. I may even tape Survivor for this. No, I'll probably watch Survivor and tape Reunion. I do love it, though.

    I liked it...of course I'm a sucker for reliving that era. I thought some of the things were a little over the top in an 80's cliche way (like Jenna's Madonna look...), but overall I think it's pretty good, and I'll probably keep watching.

    I really enjoyed it.
    It was cheesy in parts, such as when Carla was talking to the policeman and we saw a gun, you just knew she was going to say "1987 started with a bang".
    I still liked it though and look forward to seeing how the story unravels.
