  • Another good episode

    In this episode of Harper's Island, the following happens. We're still pre-wedding in this show and now its time for the Bachelor and Bachelorette parties. Of course something goes wrong and at the Bachelor party, they discover a dead body, alone with $250,000 in cash. They take the money and decide to figure out what to do with it at a later date. At the bachelorette party, a physic proves to cause more worry than fun and the bride to be's china set (which belonged to her dead mother) gets smashed to pieces. As the episode ends, we see the bride to be, Trish, as she drowns. Luckily there is someone there to save her before it's too late.
  • Not everyone who's dying dies because of the real killer.

    The first real body is found. Now that's a bachelor party to remember – dead body, blood and lots of money. Booth getting killed was completely Malcolm's fault, he was trying to steal the money and over his best friend's body, he actually did

    Trish found out about her stepmother, Katherine's affair with Richard. Richard closed the pool cover so he could 'save' her and it would keep her mouth shut. Don't think that's going to work, Trish worships her father and she's really upset about it.

    People are really nasty pieces of work sometimes and money makes supposedly nice people crazy.
  • bachelor & bacherlorette party keeps everyone separate & distracted enough to not notice the dead bodies piling up!

    muttonchops, really needed the money huh? he shot the damn boat, at first i thought it was an accident but he totally shot the boat on purpose. the stripper scene was funny & the brother-in-law threatening trish like that was crazy. he better watch it or henry will beat the hell out of him. he's a little bruiser that guy. he knocked down shane with 1 punch & shane, who is bigger than him, backed down. even hunter alluded to being scared of him in college, that is, before he died, lol. i would have been surprised had they killed the fiance so early in the series. but instead it was the nerd, who shot himself. it was a good scene & muttonchops did a good acting job. "where's booth" henry asked? someone noticed, is it because henry is the killer but hadn't planned on taking booth out that day? lol but trish didn't ask about lucy, she was too preoccupied with the china breaking & the creepy fortune teller & her cheating step-mom & the henry drinking game, which was pretty funny. it looks like hunter blew his face off so henry didn't recognize his carcass on the boat, which was good. this show is really well written. i love all the red herrings & i'm just wondering how long they'll be able to keep all the deaths a secret.

    I am Surprise that this show is not getting a better rating here. This show is GREAT!! Excellent Acting, Great Writting, And Fantastic fiming! And on TV in this day of endless garbage tv filled with disfuctional wantabe actors on every concievable reality show. This show is a crown jewel shining brightly on a heavily tarnished crown known as TV. I can't wait for the next episode! Now since this has to be a hundred words long I will say how happy I am with this cast. Lets Start with The Sherriff Jim Beaver or as I first knew him as Uncle Bobby or Bobby Singer demon hunter on Supernatural were CBS first put Harpers Island to compete against. NOT A WISE chouce on their part. Jim Beaver fills the role perfectly It seems made for him because of his experience on Supernatural. I could go on about Kate Cassidy ( 1st Ruby on Supernatural) Or Chris Gauthier from ( Eureka) Gina Holden ( from SCIFI resent version FLASH GORDON) And The very sexy Claudette Mink who has been in many shows from scifi's Fisrt Wave, Battlestar Galactica, to recently CW's Reaper, and Smallville. Harpers Island is filled with actots who have done a lot of Fanboy shows and other great dramatic works. All around all I can say is watch this show pay attention its exciting and you will get caught up in the MYSTERY!!
