Storyline

David Carver Jr., an irresponsible, un-kept young man, returns to his family owned ski resort in Colorado after the death of his grandfather to find that he, the youngest son, has inherited the entire mountain which puts him at odds with his older brother Will, the resort manager, who's holding out against being bought out by Colin Dowling, a scheming land developer. Other characters involved in the power struggle are David and Will's youngest sister Shelley, a local teen wanting to make it big as a champion snowboarder; Maria Serrano, David's former girlfriend, now Will's girlfriend; the double-dealing resort operator Travis, whom is under the control of Dowling and his son Michael; and the Downling's attractive daughter Maxine 'Max' whom falls for David while trying to get him to sell the mountain to her father.

This show looked like it had potential
3 April 2005 | by SonicStuartSee all my reviews

When I first watched "The Mountain" I liked and thought it had the chances of becoming a popular show on The WB sort of like "Dawson's Creek". The show is about a guy named David Carver Jr. (Oilver Hudson, who is Kate Hudson's brother) who is an irresponsible, un-kept young man, returns to his family owned ski resort in Colorado after the death of his grandfather to find that he, the youngest son, has inherited the entire mountain which puts him at odds with his older brother Will, the resort manager, who's holding out against being bought out by Colin Dowling, a scheming land developer. Other characters involved in the power struggle are David and Will's youngest sister Shelley, a local teen wanting to make it big as a champion snowboarder; Maria Serrano, David's former girlfriend, now Will's girlfriend; the double-dealing resort operator Travis, whom is under the control of Dowling and his son Michael; and the Downling's attractive daughter Maxine 'Max' whom falls for David while trying to get him to sell the mountain to her father. I think the show was kind of like "Everwood" meets "Dawson's Creek" meets "The O.C." meets "Beverly Hills 90210" meets "Summerland". Except the show is different from all those others but still kind of like them. This show came on Wednesdays on The WB until the show switched places with "Jack and Bobby" (which is a really crappy show!) and the show was on Sundays and was being crushed in a competition by ABC's "Desperate Housewives" and then the show was canceled and only had 13 episodes. I can't believe why The WB would make a very stupid decision by picking "Jack and Bobby" over "The Mountain"! I wish this show didn't last one season!

User Rating: 10/10

BOTTOM LINE: GREAT SHOW WITH REAL POTENTIAL IN BECOMING A HIT!
