After his father's mysterious death, a young novelist confronting writer's block, steals back to his rural roots, in search of inspiration - and answers. On his ferry trip to Glory, a person goes overboard and dies. It seems an accident, but the novelist thinks otherwise. His best-selling first novel revealed the seamy underbelly of his hometown - so the home folks are furious at the prodigal's return. He tries to get help from the strong-willed, beautiful, local coroner (Poppy Montgomery). Glory Days' novelist hero Mike Cahill return to "Glory" has similarities to acclaimed novelist Dave Grubb's life. "Glory" was also the name Grubb used for a fictionalized Moundsville, West Virginia in his writing. Davis Grubb was a descendant of an old prominent family in Moundsville. Like Cahill, he mined the river-town's history for his works, including his award-winning first novel _Night of the Hunter, The (1955)_, about a serial killer stalking prey along the Ohio River.

The show was released on DVD in parts of Europe, under the name Demon Town, but not as a TV show. Instead, the episodes were edited together into three movies, in a completely random episode order. The first "movie" was 1h 55min, while the second and third were 1h 24min. See more »
In a genre of TV shows populated with such-- dare I say it?-- excretement as Dawson's Creek, Gilmore Girls, and all reality TV, Glory Days brings back a lost line of hope to the WB. It is a beautifully crafted show finally worthy of Kevin Williamson's talent.
The show takes older murder mysteries (for example, Murder She Wrote) and turns them into, if not better, more appealing to the teenage eye. Its eye candy measures up to its content, because it doesn't slack on that, either. It has interesting, real characters who feel and flirt and fool around in a way that doesn't bore like the endless trysts of Pacey, Dawson, and Joey (doesn't that sound like a GLAAD smile beaming?). And while building characters, the show never loses its plot, that it is a murder mystery and each episode can stand alone...the show is a beautiful revival of favorites like the Twilight Zone and Eerie.
And Eddie Cahill's utter beauty doesn't hurt either...*wink* Check it out- you won't be disappointed!
