very promising pilot
10 February 2012 | by brulenewhallSee all my reviews

OK, so the demise of Lost left me bereft of quality TV. Since then I've been waiting a little impatiently for a series to catch my eye, The River looks like the show I've been waiting for. The plot seems kind of basic at first, like a cheesy reality show parody. Then it hit me with all kinds of weirdness that I did not expect but absolutely love. How to describe it....? Imagine Lost had a threesome with Carnivale and a national geographic show on Amazonian legends. The illegitimate offspring might be something like The River. Its very quick into the action and mystery and the pace is maintained throughout. I liked the camera work, some might moan but its really effective, and the acting is good. I've only seen two episodes but they were jaw-droppingly good, if you loved Lost then I think The River is definitely for you. Enjoy
