The River: Guardians of The Jungle . . .
I don’t know, perhaps all my horror movie loving has desensitized me, but I don’t find this show scary or creepy . . . . However I do like the storyline that’s going on, and want to know what in the heck is “out there” that Emmett found.
In the latest episode the crew disturbed the guardians of the jungle, who ended up using a powder to blind them. The sole crew member not blinded (because he didn’t sleep in camp with them that night) had to retrieve the cure for them all. I was impressed that the trees they talked about are real trees in the amazon. The sago tree is often used to produce food for people though . . . I had never heard of making blinding power from it.
We basically learned in this episode that the mom had an affair with the TV producer, and that while he was still in love with her . . . . the mom still wanted Emmett. The son was shocked to learn years ago that the affair happened when the parents were separated, there was really no cheating going on by the mom. We also saw the guy hired (I’m horrible with their names) to protect the crew making another cryptic call about “the source” and how he expected everyone to be dead before they could find Emmett or “The Source” because they were all blinded. Well that didn’t work out so well once the cure came! What is this “Source?” I still say it’s something like the Garden of Eden, where life began and a carefully guarded secret by some underground world wide organization.

The River: Premier Thoughts
Last night was the 2 hour premier of ABC’s “The River.” This has been getting a lot of promo time. It’s from Spielberg and the guy behind the “Paranormal Activity” films. I am a big horror fan, but I’m not a big fan of those movies. I went into this expecting to have a lot of the same techniques from those films in the show, and indeed that’s what it was. A lot of standing around, a lot of talking, a lot of jiggly cameras with some creeps thrown in here and there.
The show is about an explorer, Dr. Emmett Cole, who basically had his own “Discovery Channel” like show for 20 years. He disappears in the Amazon, and his family goes in search of him. A television crew follows to make a show about them searching for him. It turns out after 20 years, he seems to have found something, real magic!
As with a lot of new shows this season, I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it. It was just okay. This only seems to be an 8 part miniseries, and since I basically just watched the first 2 parts, I want to at least see how it ends. I am also interested the religious/magic themes going on in it too.
I never found myself scared out of my wits, but neither was I with the “Paranomal” movies. There were times with the movies I jumped, but I never felt the dread others did. The same with this show. I never felt dread, and found I only jump once. I did feel creeped out in the second hour with the doll tree. But at the same time I kept wondering “how did people in the Amazon get all these damn plastic made dolls?” That annoyed me more than anything!
One of the men on the team with them was caught by the producer making a phone call, saying if Emmett found the source, he’ll take him out! All I could think of was either there is something in the jungle some corporation wants to make money off of, or this is going to play into some grand Illuminati storyline where people are put in charge of protecting some major world secret. It almost seems from the previews it’s the later, as we saw a clip of Emmett saying something along the lines of “This is the source of it all!”
If you watched, what are your thoughts? All I know is the ratings and reception seem to be less than stellar. So if I stick with this, only to have a giant cliff hanger and the show canned … I’ll be pissed!
ABC February Sweeps/Valentine’s Week Spoilers!
A bunch of spoilers for Mid-February here . . . of note there are two weeks of “Private Practice” as the spoiler release went out a bit later for it than the “Grey’s” episode for the same date. Previews for this bunch include . . . .
On “Private Practice,” Sam reconnects with his estranged sister.
On “Castle,” the first of a two-parter guest staring the one and only Jennifer Beals and “Drop Dead Diva’s” Jason Stamberg, both who play agents that work with Castle and Becket on an international conspiracy case.
On “The River,” the second episode finds the family/boat crew face to face with “guardians of the jungle.”
On “Body of Proof,” a body is found dead in a freezer of an Italian restaurant . . . I swear I watched this already? Or did “Castle” do a similar story?
On “Revenge,” it looks like we are finally nearing the present, where Daniel gets his at the engagement party?
On “Grey’s” and “Private Practice,” a two part cross-over as they turn to Derek to help Mason’s mom Erica with her brain tumor.
On “Desperate Housewives,” if you suspected Orson is the person who killed Alejandro . . . you may be right as he is back!
