The Mountain

Show Summary

Boundary Mountain is an escapist playground for wealthy tourists and extreme sports enthusiasts, but to the Carver family, it's home. The Mountain chronicles the larger-than-life saga of the Carvers, whose colorful patriarch, David Carver, Sr. (guest star Chad Everett) founded the town and its internationally famous ski resort after winning the land in a poker game. When this legendary man unexpectedly dies, his choice of an heir sends shockwaves throughout the community. Free-spirited David Carver, Jr. (Oliver Hudson, Dawson's Creek) left home years ago to pursue his dream of becoming a world-class motocross racer, while his older brother Will (Anson Mount, Line of Fire) diligently attended business school with every expectation of taking over the family empire. No one, least of all the brothers themselves, expected David to inherit the Mountain. Now, David finds himself saddled with a responsibility he never wanted and a brother who rightly feels betrayed. David just wants to run, until he realizes his grandfather may have had bigger things in mind. David begins to reconnect with his mother Gennie (Barbara Hershey, Beaches), a former ski champion who has a passion for organizing charity events, and teenage sister Shelly (newcomer Tara C. Thompson), a competitive snowboarder. He will uncover long-buried secrets about his co-workers and his town while trying to cover up his own past. He finds that Boundary is no longer what it used to be when he was a teenager. Maria Serrano (Alana De La Garza, All My Children), the love he left behind, has moved on and found comfort in David's older brother Will. Travis Kurri (Johann Urb, Zoolander) grew up as David Sr's faithful protege but his loyalties no longer lie with the Carvers but with ruthless business tycoon Colin Dowling (Mitch Pileggi, The X-Files), a man who wants to take over the mountain and expand his empire there. The changes (and complications) keep coming with the arrivals of Colin's daughter Max (Elizabeth Bogush, Titans) and son Michael (Tommy Dewey, What I Like About You), two young adults who find that they're more interested in the spirited Carver kids, David and Shelly, than they are in their father's business ventures. Michael immediately clashes with town local Sam Tunney (Penn Badgley, Do Over), Shelly's friend and snowboarding buddy, whose growing feelings for his childhood friend and teammate are being trampled on by the young Dowling's own attraction to Shelly. From Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision. Executive producers are McG, Stephanie Savage (producers of The O.C.) and Shaun Cassidy (American Gothic). David Barrett (Fastlane) directed.

    • No wonder it got cancelled.

      This was the worst show i have ever watched. I saw the trailer and was thinking "Hey this is going to be a good show" when i watched it i turned it off after about 5 or 10 minutes.

      Do Not Bring This Back... Ever!

      that means no remakes no movies and no spinoffs!!!
    • i loved this show. what happened?

      Why did it get cancelled? I just don\'t get it. I was just getting into it and boom it is gone just like that. I want it back. Can a show air again once it has been cancelled? I wish they would bring it back. It was one of the few shows i actually really enjoyed watching. The ratings don\'t know nothing about the way the audience really feels. so i think it should air again. i would like to be informed if it should happen to be brought back. maybe one day it will. Until then i will just wait.moreless
    • Will love it and never forget it.

      I was really young when I secretly started to watch this show. All I want right now is to buy the season (if you can even call it that) on dvd. My favourite character was Scarlett and even though Sam and Shelley were suppose to end up together, I really liked Sam and Scarlett as a couple. I would recommend it, if you can get your hands on the episodes, to anyone in search of a quick drama with alot of love. It will really be missed, the WB is really missing out on a great show that would have braught them alot of money, garenteed.moreless
    • I loved that show!

      hmm-mmm..hard to believe that it's two year already after the wb decides to cancelled that show. I really, really loved that show and I never missed any episodes of that show!

      except for the cat fights! I really loved it..althought few of my favourite actors and actress are already in different shows now.

      I'm little bit disappointed after they moved the new nights and new time!

      TheWb make really messed it up! That is, I'll never forget that show for rest of my life!

      It would'd be wonderful if Fox picked that show before it's getting cancelled!

      Oh, must be going on. I'm very anxious to know what will happens next to my favourite actors and actress..! I have check to see how they're doing!

      Geez, that's shame for TheWb to make that should've gone be stay on same night and same time!moreless
    • Is it worth a second season? Or was one enough? My love and criticism for the show mixed together makes me unsure of what side I'm on.

      The show's got a good drama story that made me watch the whole first season in just a few days. The plots are fine for that, I didn't watch it on the TV, so I have absolutely no idea what it feels like to wait for the next episode, but I can guess that the plots are a little thin and unoriginal written for the show to continue.

      It’s been billed as The OC in the mountains, and if you should compare the first season of these two show, I think the chance of having the majority on my side is pretty big when I say that it just cannot compare.

      The actors are OK, but not the best. The women look good, and then you have Oliver Hudson and Mitch Pileggi, which is a small level above the others.

      As I said, the plot is just fine for a 13 episode seasons, it's just enough for not to get bored. But I doubt if they could have kept it up with a second season, and I'm glad they stopped with this one, because then I can still think of it as a good show. Once again comparing it to The OC, which has gone downhill ever since the first season, with only a few peaks, The Mountain knew when to stop (or at least WB knew).

      The ending is very open, but life really is as well. "Life goes on". And at the end, a tribute to the intro of the show, a great song and great footage.moreless
