  • The Experiment

    The Experiment was a spectacular episode of The River. I really enjoyed watching because there was a lot of action, suspense, and moments that made me jump! I thought the story was intriguing and well written. There were some major questions raised with this episode concerning Dr. Cole as well as Curt. The production of this episode was excellent and the ending definitely left me wanting more. I certainly look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!!!moreless
  • .........(speechless)............

    Seriously? Zombies? This show is like a fried rice (ingredients are what you have in your frige). Besides Blair Witch Project & Lost, now even comes to The Walking Dead & Cocoon. What can I say? But I will keep on watching it because I really really want to know how they gonna do with the ending!
  • My p.o.w.

    I think the zombie effect was thrilling, and all the episode was good,it made me laugh when I remember somebody calling the show "Blair River Project" lol, the only thing that was corny was the end, especially how Emmet said "So, how was my funeral" ,I dont know why, I didnt like how he delivered the line. But I still love the show and can't wait for the next episode
  • Really? What the Kafka.

    Oh man. I'm really not sure what to think about what I just watched. I think my key reactions were a plain and simple "really??" to the zombies and dragonfly and a "what the Kafka" to the cocoon. This episode had some pretty far-out events, felt super-dense and came back around to that good-natured groan only The River can produce. It felt like there was almost too much in this episode, but it was sufficiently tense, threw the plot miles ahead and was actually a little fun to watch. Not the best (I still think Peaches takes that cake) - I'd put it at number two, though.

    That aside, seriously, who gave Lincoln a machete? Who's responsible for that?moreless
  • no season 2 for you .... experiment in terrorible (sp)

    misspelling is intended.

    this show is so bad, it might cancel the shows surrounding it. pure crap. not as bad as some recent crap-fests ( like the event, and other unmentionables, that make me sick) but terrible. i stop watching now. and i have forced myself to watch the past 3 episodes. the only thing scary, is writing, directing, continuity, intelligence that is missing, logic....... etc. bye bye..... no season 2 for you!!!!!!moreless
