Storyline

Riese, a seemingly random wanderer, is being hunted by a terrifying religious cult, The Sect. Traveling from nation to nation for years, she is accompanied only by a wolf, Fenrir. Together they must evade the assassins sent by the Sect - who'll stop at nothing to complete the task they failed to achieve many years ago. Her past is shrouded in mystery, as even Riese can't recall the events of the tragic night when her entire family was slaughtered and she was forced to flee into the wilderness. On her journey, she'll piece together her past, and her destiny, in a conflict that will hold the fate of the world in the balance - and the once peaceful kingdom of Eleysia will be the battlefield. "Riese", a unique and original steam-punk -inspired production includes Christine Chatelain ( SyFy's Sanctuary , Supernatural, The Collector, The L-Word ). Ben Cotton (Harper's Island, Stargate: Atlantis, Stan Helsing), Sharon Taylor (Stargate: Atlantis, Alice and Huck) and Patrick Gilmore (Stargate:... Written by Anonymous

Just plain awful
27 May 2012 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

How would anyone fund such a bad show, is beyond anything. I don't even know where to begin, the show is completely stupid! It makes no sense; but not in a "Lost in the good years" no sense, but in an actual lack of direction. The society portrayed in the show is all around weird, and it works in a way that is not believable at all. I know it's low budget, but even so, you can compensate with acting and plausibility. The show has none. It's a sequence of clichés and dumb choices, and characters that are just not organic. At all! Don't waste any time watching. I certainly didn't, I couldn't bear watching any episode 'till their end, and I've tried, more than once! But I guess the show fits syfy's schedule, filled with other productions that don't take any kind of quality into account.
