The River > The River Review: No More Mister Nice Guy > Comments Page 2
I thought it was a great series. Watched every episode! Couldn't get enough of it. If could change one thing about it. It would be that ABC shouldn't have made it. It would have been better on HBO or Showtime. I think they would have done a better job with all of it. But with that said it needs to be another season. I think that everyone that watched it deserves to see what happens next. Make a season 2 or take it to HBO! Spielberg/paranormal activity producer.
I watched every episode from the first minute to the last. I loved, loved, loved it. I was disappointed with the way the final episode ended. I want to see more of this suspense filled program. Hopefully ABC will bring it back for a second round. If not I will always wonder what happened!! (Like the way The Sopranos left everyone hanging.)
Good to see that others agreed with me that this was poorly written, acted, lighted and shot with a stupid primis. I stopped watching it long ago. So of course they will bring it back. I wish your reviewer would let us know more of the shows that have and have not been renewed.
I didn't like the wife at all. Strong character? Not exactly. Pushy, yes. Strong within? No, not at all. She sacrificed her son, put him in danger, pushed him into putting his LIFE on hold, for her husband. Not too good. And the son? He had a life and medical career going - the mom told him if he's not on the boat with them, they won't get the money or the show - he HAD to come. Oh? No, he should have told her to go F herself and stayed on his own medical career path. That is a tragedy, imo. And that's not even the worst of her actions as weak and pathetic.
When asking Bojuna and Jahel to bring her son back, she said she would "do anything." OH? ANYTHING? She's talking to a God or Demon and she says that? That "anything" encompasses a whole lot of stuff, like eg, sacrifice the lives of everyone to do it? She dealt with a DEMON, as it turns out, for pete's sakes. And oh yeah, that "anything" probably is what's up next - STUCK there, forever - multiple live
But those two things, the crappy camera bs and Jahel speaking Spanish - while she had important things to say, said them rapidly, and said a lot. Bad move by the station. I know a few people that stopped watching JUST because of the language/subtitles crap when there really was NO need for that - she could have done like her pop, use an accent! My own plugging of the show (oh, it's SOOOOO good, give it a chance) to try to get them to watch more had no effect. I plug for a good reason. The main stations are way too quick to can sci fi-ish type shows (like THE GATES, an excellent series as good as True Blood) due to a tad lower ratings. If one or more shows gets better ratings, they might show us more shows like it.
I don't think the show was ever going to have another season. I thought it was just an 8 hour "movie" in episodes, like Steven King's 'Kingdom Hospital' was. I could see that ratings would go down (even if I watched it as a sci fi fan par excellance!). I'm pretty good at predicting what's gonna get caned.
For one, the REALLY crappy photography with the cameras (it doesn't look 'real' - it looks CRAPPY) - and Jahel speaking Spanish rapidly, which requires people (some with eyesight issues) to have to READ what she's saying - and people are not really able to WATCH while reading - and yeah, there's much to watch. That was a STUPID move by the makers of this show. Really really stupid. I ALMOST stopped watching and I'm a fanatic sci fi fan, just due to that. Happily, I recorded the show - but I had to do a LOT of rewinding whenever Jahel had a part - rewind, play again, read, ooops, didn't catch it all, rewind again, read, got it - rewind and now WATCH the action - UGH!
It was an intense season finale. However, my immediate thought when it was over was: "PUT A FORK IN IT, IT'S DONE!" I mean, Emmett Cole has been found and The River is apparently NOT going to let them go - - Not much story left to tell. I do not think a second season will be happening.
there was never such a promo you were on some strong frugs though
am i the only one who wondered how they had enough to eat and enough fuel for 38 days?
Before the show aired, when they were playing nonstop commercials for it, what was the one clip they just kept on showing and showing and showing? The big, green monster paw grabbing the edge of the boat. I absolutely LOVE monsters, so I've been watching all season and waiting for something more than spirits and tribes. I thought that tonight's episode, the (probably series) finale would HAVE to have it, right? WRONG!
False. F'ing. Advertising.
I loved this episode I think that it was deffinetly the best one yet and I really hope they renew it for a second season cause it's really just begun and they can go so far with it I also love this show and don't want to see it end just yet. I'm glad in the end the demon was exorcised and Lincoln was alive and back to normal. I knew that when they brought Lincoln back that it probably wasn't him really or that he was change in some way and when he told Jonas that he had a deal or something like that with Kurt I know for sure that it wasn't really Lincoln. I didn't really see the river changing and not letting them leave coming I thought that something else might happen that made them not be able to leave but not the whole river changing. Again I love this show and this episode was absolutely my favorite and I really really really hope it comes back for a second season.
