Wicked new show. Great suspense and a great premise -- a must watch.

This show is great.. if I were to have been directed by some of these comments I might never have watched! Thanks to the sensible applause however, I read between the lines and am now almost finished..(2 eps left) Why anyone bothers to watch to this point then add negative comments is beyond me? Almost 3yrs on & no recent comments suggests no viewers? I'm enjoying it for many reasons, knowing it will not continue after 8th ep, meh..I'm loving the creep factor and jumps! Better than a stack of horror flicks I've seen. Bit of polish sure, then it would be right up there with the best of them! 8/10

Really glad I decided to watch this show. I wasn't sure if I would like it at first but it's a very original idea and keeps me on the edge of my seat. I hope the rest of the season is as promising.

Absolutely loved THE RIVER...Once again, network TV folds on an original premise as mindless reality television continues to fester. Frustrating. Would be top-shelf if someone picked it up. At least we can savor 8 gloriously creepy episodes.

its a bit cheesy, but quite entertaining, better than Lost in my opinion, but only because of the creepy aspect.

I like this show and I don't want it cancelled!!!!! This is what I found about its cancellation: "Although The River has not officially been canceled, due to its sub-par ratings, Netflix is in talks with ABC Studios about possibly continuing the series on its video-on-demand digital distribution service. This move would continue to make money for the studio. Discussion on the matter is ongoing."

When I first saw the commercials for this show, it didn't pique my interest - sure, horror is my favorite genre, and Bruce Greenwood is an amazing actor, but it just didn't look like something I'd enjoy. Then I heard two people talking about it on the bus home from work, and decided to give it a watch. So I came home, pulled up On Demand, and watched the first episode. Halfway through, they had me, hook, line, and sinker. I couldn't have torn my eyes away from the screen even if I wanted to - which I didn't. Since then, I've watched every episode faithfully, some of them multiple times. ABC could really be onto something here...

wow! they left season 1 on a massive cliffhanger! Hope this means for a second season! hopefully with more episodes in the next, this is one of the best shows ever!!

i was suprised that i really like this show... normally the only TV shows i like are not on big networks.. fox.. etc.... ummm HBO usually has great series and well AMC hit a home run with walking dead but with that being said... ive always been a sucker for jungles,amazon themes and I think they did a great job with this show... the episode with the blind "ones" hits a terrifying nerve... good show cant wait to watch it as it all unfolds.... cant wait till they go deeper up river and see what magic and whatnot comes about... this is like lost on a boat yet.. they could have human contact if they wanted.... I highly reccomend watching this show, i hate big network shows and i like this one so others who usually only watch hbo/showtime series really may enjoy this one

Good show, some comments i seen say that it bad acting but its supposed to be like. It is supposed to look like a documentary From what I've seen so far I give it a 4/5 only a 4 because its not what i would normally watch.

Meh, not doing it for me so far. Seems like a low-budget knock-off of LOST, but with bad acting. Will give it a few more episodes to see if they can kick it up a notch.
