I gave it a six for a few reasons. First, most of the clips, scenes, and information were already revealed and shown in the Block Party reunion. Second, except for Don Murray's video portion, this reunion had the same players it had that were in Block Party. Third, the cul-de-sac had changed quite a bit from 1993. Fourth, it used that cruddy format of which the actors get al teary eyed and talk to each other about their characters in their "natural" scripted way. The only good thing were the addition of the bloopers (which I would rate lower than the Dallas bloopers). The only good interaction that seemed straight from the heart (or as close as it could get) was JVA and Ted Shackelford. Another reason why I rated it so low was the tape that they used for Greg's scene after Laura's funeral. If they couldn't at least use McCashin's voice, then they shouldn't have included that scene. I realize it was Devane's most important scene, but it just didn't work on this reunion the way it was shown. I would have rated this reunion higher if they had more cast members (Richard (can't without McCashin's permission), Ben Gibson, Kenny, and Ginger).
