Hi Amanda --

Thanks for your feedback. We love the State Of The Re:Union series too. Unfortunately, it's not a weekly show, so we only get to air them as they are produced (usually in short bursts throughout the year).

I was looking forward to hearing another episode of State of the Re-Union. This is really boring. What a disappointment!
