The main issue I have with the series premiere of The River is there was not enough build up in mystery & character before getting onto the river. "Day 1" of the supposed documentary filming starts off at night in a bar somewhere in the US. "Day 2" the characters are already on a boat somewhere on the Amazon river! How's that for efficient travel arrangements? I was hoping for a scary premise with disturbing/frightening scenes a la Paranormal Activity, Blair Witch, and/or Cloverfield but it just didn't deliver in the first two episodes. That is the constraint of television and a one hour time slot I guess. Since it is only 8 episodes for the "first season" I will stick with it. Hopefully character development will get better, and the story line will not get cliched. So far we have an exotic jungle and a smoke monster, now we're just waiting for the intrigue.
