What an incredible show...
First episode was ok, sets the story and characters perfectly, but took a while to kick in and could have done with a bit more scares, but hey, thats a pilot for you. The 2nd episode on the other hand was INSANE and just amazing! So scary, well put together and structured, characters are enjoyable to watch (both funny and well acted). It's like nothing out there. It doesn't rely on gore which I think is the perfect kind of Horror....It's all about the tension, and The River just delivers. Really looking forward to watching this show more..
Very well done iTunes and ABC for getting together and making this available for us to buy. As someone (of many) that isn't a slave to a Sky subscription, THIS is how you defeat piracy...
Time for correction and praise..
No, £12.99 gets you a season pass for the whole series. iTunes, this is a great idea!!! Maybe start doing it for other American series?
Impressions after first 2 eps.
Finished watching the first two episodes. Show opens with an interesting storyline and straight away pulls you into action-adventure filled jungle that is, besides all the well known predators, inhabited by spirits, ghosts and so called "magic". The story line seems to be good and there's not too much shaky-runny-blurry camera shots this far, so it's very well enjoyable. The most of two episodes are filled with a content that happens on stationary camera fitted boat so it's easy to follow the plot but if you ask me, I don't think that a vessel of such size would be covered by 20+ CCTV devices even if it belonged to TV producing crew shooting a TV Show.
I must admit that I was expecting something more realistic with just a bit of a supernatural, but it turned out to be more of a horror-fiction then an adventure. I guess if you like that then it's a great show to watch. I sure enjoyed it and will carry on watching it.
Pitty that the first season is limited to just 8 episodes, so 1/4 of that's already out. Let's see what the other 3/4 will bring.
