A New and Fascinating look at Island Life
I recently heard about a tampil 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 yang lalu I saw some gambar from the tampil on the link
, but didn’t know what it was about atau if I wanted to take the time to find out. I happened to see a promo for the tampil 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 tampil up. I ended up watching the tampil and loving it. If anda are anything like me anda have never heard of this tampil before now.
This tampil 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 tampil there is a lot of character development going on. The tampil has a large cast of known and unknown actors. Some of the people anda might recognize are Cameron Richarson who was on Point Pleasant, Matt Barr who played the stalker on One pohon Hill, Victor Webster who played Coop on link
and was on Mutant X, Chris Gauthier who was in two episodes of link
, Jim berang-berang, beaver who plays Bobby Singer on link
, and Katie Cassidy who played the original Ruby on link
. With this great cast anda would think that the akting would be great, but to be honest it is mediocre. The tampil makes up for this oleh 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 tampil in is beautiful.
The tampil takes place on Harpers Island off the coast of Seattle Washington. So the tampil 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. anda 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 friends on the island as children. While these three were children a rash of six murders occurred on the island oleh 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 pohon oleh 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 anda watch the tampil anda 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 atau someone lebih horrible?). There is also a creepy little girl that is the bunga 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 anda don‘t get to know yet, but that seem very intriguing.
In the first episode there are already two murders. I won’t tell anda 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 awan in the water. The selanjutnya victim was hacked in half. It was a decent scene. Due to the graphic nature of the tampil 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 anda can do something else on line while they play because they tell anda how long they are.
Now anda may be asking yourself what makes this tampil so unique, well the answer is the Pick the Vitim feature at CBS.com. The link
feature gives anda a chance to win $1000 dollars oleh guessing who the victims are going to be. Every time anda guess right anda 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 anda might. I thought this feature gives the tampil a lebih interactive feel. I like this tampil a lot and thought I would introduce it to all of you. I hope I did it justice. If anda haven’t seen it and would like to watch it anda can watch link
on line, it‘s only 40 menit long. anda can also get information about the tampil on the link
