New Favorite Show!
14 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

So this show is my new favorite. I love the horror shows they are coming out with and this is another quality one to add to the mix. Between Walking Dead, American Horror Story and now The River I am a very happy TV watcher. The thing that I liked about the show is it wasn't what I expected. In fact, while watching the first two episodes, I gave up trying to predict what would happen because it is just so crazy and unpredictable. I feel like the characters are interesting and believable in their given situation and they are all driven by something different that makes you want to know more about each of them. I haven't seen anything like this on TV before and I am in love. I hope the show gets the viewers it deserves it would be a tragedy to have it canceled before all the questions that the first two episodes bring up are answered. I also love the way it is filmed, it has a voyeuristic sense of dread that you are some how witnessing a piece of reality that you were not meant to see.
