October Road

Silly post title for March blogging or only slightly behind-the-times rumination on pop culture (vis-a-vis television)? I retort after you get snide.

My middle brother and parents live in Newnan, GA – Newnan Country Club to be exact – and they were privy to the filming of one of the newer shows of the replacement season, October Road, last year.

This show isn’t like Vanished, it’s not set in Atlanta, it’s the semi-rural South parading as semi-rural New England.

Portions were filmed at Agnes Scott, Oakland Cemetery and other Atlanta-area locales.

We TiVo’d one episode, but haven’t watched yet, but I wanted to mention it to the blogosphere.

Has anyone seen it? Is it worth watching (once or regularly)? How does Newnan hold up as New England?

    I moved here from New England just about a year ago. I had never been below the Mason Dixon before. I’ve been quite amazed by how similar rural South and rural New England (specifically Massachusetts and New Hampshire)are. It’s just a difference of accent really.

    Thanks for the quick response, Kelly. I wouldn’t have assumed there was a similarity.

    By the way, since you posted this, I checked the show out. It is HIDEOUSLY BAD. And believe me, I think there is a time and place to enjoy bad television. Let’s put it this way – I occasionally watch stuff like Laguna Beach, and I thought October Road was painful to watch.

    I like it, but if it were not filmed in Newnan I never would have watched it to begin with. I was raised in Newnan so it has a special place in my heart. Everyone says that it’s bad, but I’m enjoying seeing my old town on TV.
