The new "Lost"-like TV show on ABC called "The River" started last Tuesday. It's definitely worth checking out. Here's the premise:
The beloved host of The Undiscovered Country, which brought the wonder and magic of the natural world into our homes for so many years, has disappeared in the wilds of the Amazon. Gone for six months now—and believed by many to be dead—his emergency beacon went off two weeks ago. Now Dr. Cole’s wife and frequent co-host of The Undiscovered Country, Tess, has begun the search for her husband. With the help of her son, Lincoln, and crew members Lena Landry, Emilio Valenzuela and his daughter Jahel, and Captain Kurt Bryndilson, Tess is looking to be reunited with her husband and save the rest of his missing crew.
Documenting the journey will be Dr. Cole’s long-time friend and collaborator on The Undiscovered Country, award-winning Producer Clark Quietly, and a team of renowned camera operators including AJ Poulain.
But the search for Dr. Cole may provide more questions than answers. Where have he and the missing crew been? What mysteries of the uncharted Amazon did they capture on film? Can this family that was torn asunder six months ago be miraculously reunited? The world holds its breath as we wait to find out just what became of Dr. Emmet Cole and his crew.
FIRST HALF SLOW LAST HOUR SPOOKY. I THINK I LIKE IT. WORTH WATCHINGReplyDelete
The scenes with the dolls were uber creepy.ReplyDelete
I liked it and am really looking forward to more. I didn't like the overused reality tv gimmick, but otherwise it was pure fun. Liked that they aren't going to drag it out. 10 episodes total. Good idea. Also, the creepy colonial cemetery and doll tree immediately made me think of you.ReplyDelete
I'm a bit put off by the heavy "borrowing" from AMAZON BEAMING, a book I read several years ago now, and perhaps from THE PATH, though the latter is subtle so far...ReplyDelete
