    The River

    Wow. The doll tree might stick with me a few nights.

    Hated the scene where the camera guy was taunting the doll to do something, and they kept switching between different cameras while you waited for one of them to move... and then it did.

    Solid start to the show. You can definitely tell it was created/produced by the guy who does the Paranormal Activity movies.

    No!!! This started tonight?! I completely forgot about its start date but I've been looking forward to it. I'll definitely watch it tomorrow online.

    Thought the camera work was great. They switch views pretty well and it is actually terrifying in some cases. They day scenes are so pleasant and then night comes and your stomach gets that sinking feeling. Solid work and hope they keep it up.

    Re: The River

    I watched this show last night with some skepticism, as I feared it would be a little too made-for-tvish. However, I've got to admit that I was pleasantly surprised. I'll definitely be coming back.

    Re: The River

    Great start to the show. The dolls were freaky as hell. I will be coming back to see what else they can do. I think that the camera work made it more freaky.

    Just watched last night's episodes. I really liked it. You can definitely see the connection to Paranormal Activity.

    I think they may have stole that from an episode of Destination Truth. There's a small island down in Mexico where there's an actual doll tree (actually a large portion of the island was filled with dolls)...started for the exact same reason as on The River...little girl drowned and her father started bringing dolls for her and then the villagers started doing it to appease her spirit because other people started drowning...

    And in the episode of Destination Truth there was a doll that actually opened it's eyes while they were filming it...pretty freaky...

    And yes, I just admitted that I watch Destination Truth...

    Re: The River

    And as for The River...agree with you guys, I was pleasantly surprised...for a TV show on ABC it was very well done...

    I thought the monkey was pretty freaky...

    And that Lena chick is hot...

    Re: The River

    The monkey was freaky. I guess the whole doll part was freaky.

    And Lena is hot. That's always a plus to an already good show.

    Re: The River

    Yes sir. As long as you watch before the next few episodes air. Usually on there they have the 5 most recent episodes that you can watch for free. I watch a lot of my shows on there since I can't watch 'em when they air on tv.
