    Well The River has gotten off to faster start in comparison to Terra Nova or Alcatraz.

    That's probably because it has five fewer episodes in Season 1, only 8 instead of 13.

    Haven't watched it yet, though.​

    Glad I recorded and watched this last night. It was surprisingly good. Not at all what I expected. I like anything Bruce Greenwood is in so I'll be watching all 8 episodes!!

    I watched a little of it last night, I'll take another look today.

    That said, if the camera work is going to stay with the herky-jerky home-video type of recording, I'll be taking a pass. Regardless of story, I just don't like that type of video at all.

    Neither does my wife. So if it is bad, it will be a non-starter.

    They use all the camera angles that a reality show will use because as part of the plot the search is being paid by a docudrama production company.

    I'm not a fan of the Cloverfield production-style either, but this one does have a nice mixed of normal camera work and inshow mounted & handheld docu-cameras. It's a balancing act, so no one is going to 100% satisfied.

    I just got done watching it, I expected a lot more. Because I've read that this is ABC's next LOST..... At this point, not even close

    It's not Lost, but it's not bad. Sort of like Paranormal Activity: The Series.
