Anyone else bothered by the censoring? Did they really have to bleep the words AND blur the mouths of the character swearing? This killed the mood for me and went downhill from there. Just an awful, awful show. Anyone who enjoyed it must watch a lot of crap TV.

It was freaking AWESOME! I can't wait for next week. I too want to know why the bear was rejected. I thought maybe because once Lincoln took it back because it was in fact his that the little girl spirit was basically throwing a fit - if you have ever been around a kid, you take something of theirs, they get mad, so you try to give it back but they are mad so they throw it at you, or just drop it and refuse to take it. As for the mark - I was like HOLY COW! But where did she get it. I can't wait to see what they will come up with next week, and I will have to say, that whole doll thing was sooooo creepy - it was GREAT!

I watch the first 20 minutes, then got bored with the whole show. I do not like the main characters nor do I like the "real filming" of the show. I for one will not watch another time.

I was too squeamish to watch "The River," but I was hoping it would be well-accepted by others, because Bruce Greenwood (Emmet Cole) is a great, overlooked actor. He was the star of "Nowhere Man," which lasted 6 months, years ago, on a channel other than network that I don't remember, and I've admired him ever since. Hope he finally gets the recognition he deserves.

I also agree the camera work is distracting and detracts from
the story. I think this show needs some changes to the writing to make it better. Not too sure who the cast is. Maybe more known folks. How about the guy from Lost Sawyer(he lives in HI) as one of the new cast? I've see the mom and dad in several things and they are good actors.

I thought it was a pretty good show to listen to. I could not watch it with the jerky camera motion. I hope they break away from that otherwise I am going to be tuning out and picking up a good book which is something I should have done in the first place.

I enjoyed the show and will give it more time to develop the characters.

Dolls are not scary. They are pieces of plastic. Why not be afraid of shoes or paper plates?

The cinematography and "film crew" conceit sucks. It was old years ago. It's geriatric now.

Frankly this is paranormal Activity in the jungle. All the ghosts seem capable of is dragging people. They drag them up and down, left and right, forward and back... yawn.

Halfway through episode one we stopped watching. We kept it on for BG noise as we hung out but no one is tuning in next week. This is 8 and out.

The beginning was interesting and well-paced. When it turned into a horror movie, they lost me. Forever.

I have to agree about the filming technique; it was very distracting and I hope that it changes. Stop trying to be cute with the camera and just film it straight; it’s not the Blair Witch or Paranormal Activity.
I can appreciate the moments that were intended to be scary, but I don’t think they reached the level of scariness to sustain the show. All though the mystique of the Amazon is pretty cool.
And what’s with these corny interview clips where a character says an expletive and it gets bleeped and distorted out. It’s like…’ooo look at us, we said a bad word and it got bleeped out, aren’t we cool? Aren’t we hip?’ Lost didn’t have to reach to those lows and it was a great show. I’ll probably give it one more view to see if it gets interesting or if the characters actually develop into some thing likable.
