New Show: The River

The RiverABC, Midseason

Starring: Bruce Greenwood (I, Robot), Daniel Zacapa (Se7en), Joe Anderson (Across the Universe, Becoming Jane), Leslie Hope (24), and Paul Blackthorne (Lagaan, 24)

Plot: Dr. Emmet Cole, an explorer, went to the Amazon looking for supernatural/paranormal stuff and never returned. Millions of kids grew up watching his nature show, but his son, Lincoln, feels like he didn’t really know him. Lincoln, his mother, and others go looking for him with Cole’s ex-producer tagging along to film a documentary of the mission.

Why We Are Excited: It’s described as a paranormal/adventure/horror series, so that sounds like it’s worth checking out. It also sounds like this family is like a real-life Wild Thornberries. The magic Cole was looking for probably won’t let them talk to animals, but any magic is better than no magic. The trailer looks cool.

Why We Are Not Excited: We hope the documentary format won’t annoy or contribute to a shaky camera that distracts from the story.


Anticipation Score: 7.5/10
