I just finished watching the first part of Riverworld on Netflix on Demand. I really didn't know what to expect, as I never read the book (or is it books). Still, I like what I see so far.
Sure, some of the acting is poor, but once I got past the confusing first 30 minutes, I actually started to enjoy the story and like the characters. Except for the main character. Matthew is annoying, but hey, can't have everything.
I have a feeling I'm enjoying this more because I never read the story. I'm sure if I had, I'd be picking nits constantly.
I took today off from work to spackle cracks in the walls before painting and wall papering. Damn distractions ;)

On SciFi channel there have been two different Riverworld movies. Both were okay as you mentioned. I wonder if we saw one of teh same ones. Neat concept that Riverworld. The GURPS Riverworld supplement was pretty sweet, as are all of their novel-based supplements.ReplyDelete
it was the later, 2 part movie, from 2010.ReplyDelete
not bad at all for made for tv
Is this based on the Phillip Jose Farmer series? I seem to recall enjoying the first couple of books and then having the story get bogged down in the later ones.ReplyDelete
from what i gather it is based on the core concept of the books. not sure if the storyline was from any of the boosReplyDelete
After watching the movie I recommend reading To Your Scattered Bodies Go, the first book in the series. TYSBG and the next couple of books in the series are a good if not great read. Do they have the Grails in the movie?ReplyDelete
