    If "Runaway" is a harbinger of things to come, it, er, harbinges very well indeed!

    Think The Fugitive meets Beverly Hills 90210 done dark and brooding.

    You go on the lam, and you find Laguna Beach. [2 Oct 2006, p.45]

    The opening episode is solidly done and pretty entertaining. But a fifth season of "Everwood" would have been a much better fit in the time slot following "7th Heaven."
  5. 40
    Runaway is neither credible nor exciting.
  6. "Runaway" is no "Everwood," which featured complex characters and an exploration of social issues. "Runaway" is far more pedestrian -- "The Fugitive" with a family -- but it may not be any better of a fit with its lead-in "7th Heaven."

    It's slow. It's dull. It's listless.

    I was so into this show and i am very upset that it is not coming on anymore.. I feel someone should pick it up and start showing it again, there were only what.. four episodes and that was enough to get me hooked, so please please put it back on the air!!! Expand

    With the junk that CW has chosen to leave on its schedule I am bewildered that this really solid show wasn't given a stable time slot and a few weeks to build a following. The characters were well developed andbelieveable. The acting was well done. I guess that is the kiss of death these days! Expand
