Storyline

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 classic movie ... Written by David Stevens

Kevin Williamson Strikes Gold Again!
17 January 2002 | by Clay-PigeonSee all my reviews

A smart and slick series from the creative man who brought us such wonderfully written thrillers as "Scream", Scream 2", "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "The Faculty". Kevin has returned to the genre that has made him famous and he does it successfully with this excellent new series, a welcome departure from the same old thing we see on TV over and over again. "Glory Days" finds writer Mike Dolan returning home four years after writing a supposedly fictitious murder-mystery novel which was inspired by his own father's death. He hasn't written anything since so he decides to return home after receiving a creepy anonymous letter about his father. He finds that the citizens of Glory Island weren't big fans of his book, including his own family who think that his book degraded the memory of his father. The local sheriff is Mike's former childhood friend who Mike depicted as a repressed homosexual in the book. A waitress at the local diner didn't fare any better, Mike made her out to be his father's killer. Upon coming home Mike is witness to an accident on a ferry which he claims was murder. Because of his book everyone in Glory considers him to be untruthful and nobody believes him so it's up to him to uncover the truth with the help of a lovely young coroner, new to Glory she's the only one not spurned by Mike's book. Filled with Kevin's sharp humor and smart character development (the cast does a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life especially Frances Fisher as Mike's mother, who he pegged as bipolar in the novel) the series draws you in to the mystery of the island and you don't want to leave until it's over, even then you eagerly await what will happen in the next episode. Once again Kevin Williamson has taken an ageless genre and tweaked it with his familiar touch to give us and hour of great entertainment filled with suspense, comedy and drama.
