A New and Fascinating look at Island Life
I recently heard about a প্রদর্শনী called Harpers Island on CBS. The premiere episode aired on April 9th at 10p.m. I didn’t think much of it. A couple of weeks পূর্বে I saw some প্রতিমূর্তি from the প্রদর্শনী on the link
, but didn’t know what it was about অথবা if I wanted to take the time to find out. I happened to see a promo for the প্রদর্শনী a couple days before it aired and decided to give it a try. Alas I forgot and didn’t get to see it the night it aired. Out of curiosity I went to the link
Website and looked the প্রদর্শনী up. I ended up watching the প্রদর্শনী and loving it. If আপনি are anything like me আপনি have never heard of this প্রদর্শনী before now.
This প্রদর্শনী has the gore of a link
with all the intrigue of a murder mystery. It puts me in mind of the Agatha Christie book/movie Ten Little Indians, which I loved. While these are the main premises of the প্রদর্শনী there is a lot of character development going on. The প্রদর্শনী has a large cast of known and unknown actors. Some of the people আপনি might recognize are Cameron Richarson who was on Point Pleasant, Matt Barr who played the stalker on One বৃক্ষ Hill, Victor Webster who played Coop on link
and was on Mutant X, Chris Gauthier who was in two episodes of link
, Jim বীবর who plays Bobby Singer on link
, and Katie Cassidy who played the original Ruby on link
. With this great cast আপনি would think that the অভিনয় would be great, but to be honest it is mediocre. The প্রদর্শনী makes up for this দ্বারা being well written, in my opinion. It looks to be a great look at the lives of people stuck in a horrifying situation. Also the location they chose to shoot this প্রদর্শনী in is beautiful.
The প্রদর্শনী takes place on Harpers Island off the coast of Seattle Washington. So the প্রদর্শনী is about a wedding party going to Harpers Island for the big day. It is suppose to be a week of fun and festivities on this beautiful island. আপনি may be asking yourself why go to this island for a wedding, the answer is that the groom (Henry Dunn), the bride (Trish Wellington), and the grooms best friend (Abby Millls) were বন্ধু on the island as children. While these three were children a rash of six murders occurred on the island দ্বারা a man named John Wakefield. This murderer had no ties to the island, he just showed up and started slaughtering people. John hacked people up and hung people from trees.
During this killing spree Abby Mills mother was killed and hung in a বৃক্ষ দ্বারা John. Abby Mills has not been back to the island in years. Abby left a father who is the Sherriff and a boyfriend behind when she left. As আপনি watch the প্রদর্শনী আপনি see that there is unfinished business between Abby and the two men, which should get good as the series progresses. Also during the first episode we find that there are two men in the lovely brides life, the groom and a mysterious man named Hunter Jennings (Is this a past lover অথবা someone আরো horrible?). There is also a creepy little girl that is the ফুল girl,
Madison, who seems to have a destructive streak and knows too much about things that are going on. At one point Madison says that she knows that people died on the island, but how did she find out. There is a couple on the island name Cal and Chloe who seem to have a very interesting relationship. Chloe seems to be very flirty with other men and Cal seems to not notice. Most of the time Cal treats Chloe like a princess, but on occasion he turns into a mean person towards her. There are many other characters that আপনি don‘t get to know yet, but that seem very intriguing.
In the first episode there are already two murders. I won’t tell আপনি who they are, but I will describe what happens to them as a sneak peek. The first person murdered was tied to the bottom of a boat, and then sucked through the propeller. Can we say sliced and diced. It even had the classic jaws image of the big red মেঘ in the water. The পরবর্তি victim was hacked in half. It was a decent scene. Due to the graphic nature of the প্রদর্শনী I believe that this is why CBS chose to put it on so late at night. I am hoping to watch them as they air, but if I don’t the quality of the episodes on line aren’t too bad. Also a bonus is that there aren’t a whole lot of commercials, I think I only saw like 5. Also আপনি can do something else on line while they play because they tell আপনি how long they are.
Now আপনি may be asking yourself what makes this প্রদর্শনী so unique, well the answer is the Pick the Vitim feature at CBS.com. The link
feature gives আপনি a chance to win $1000 dollars দ্বারা guessing who the victims are going to be. Every time আপনি guess right আপনি get points and entered into a drawing to win the money, I think this is how it works. Now I just like the guessing part and the bragging part. I am not lucky so I won’t win the money, but আপনি might. I thought this feature gives the প্রদর্শনী a আরো interactive feel. I like this প্রদর্শনী a lot and thought I would introduce it to all of you. I hope I did it justice. If আপনি haven’t seen it and would like to watch it আপনি can watch link
on line, it‘s only 40 মিনিট long. আপনি can also get information about the প্রদর্শনী on the link
