We love the idea of a new found-footage horror drama. Call the show "The River," make the river in the title the Amazon, make there be a missing person who is something of a celebrity (as least in fictional world of the series), and you have made us intrigued. Consequently, we are intrigued by "The River" as it has all those things. The series starts tonight and runs until "Dancing with the Stars" takes over the spot at the end of March, but until then we could very well find ourselves quite regularly spooked. We love being spooked in the comfort of our own home, especially as we're being spooked by things in a river thousands of miles away.
