Trivia

Co-executive producer Dan Shotz stated that finding someone for the role of Abby Mills was the most difficult part of casting, with hundreds of actresses auditioning. Elaine Cassidy was found after her self made audition tape was sent from London to Los Angeles, four days before filming on the pilot presentation began. See more »

I think it's fresh and I have enjoyed it!
25 May 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I have enjoyed watching Harper's Island. I think it's fresh and a step in the right direction for TV. I find the characters likable and I prefer writers that dig a bit deeper than some 2 dimensional characters in shows over the past decade. The writing shows strength in bringing out human characteristics that sometimes are only revealed in extremes (as in episode 5 over the money). It isn't spoon fed nonsense but has enough twists and turns to find yourself wishing for more.

My comment is it's a step in the right direction for fictional writing and a lot of shows including reality I am just over. I think it is brave to present something in a new vein of thought. Keep it coming I'm loving it and thanks to the writers for something fresh and not just regurgitated rubbish (like my brain doesn't work and I can't tell the difference). A big big thank you for an enjoyable mystery show.
