Famed explorer Dr. Emmet Cole (Bruce Greenwood) went looking for magic deep in the uncharted Amazon and never returned. The shocking truth about his disappearance is out there, somewhere, just waiting to be discovered.
To the millions of kids who grew up watching his nature show, Dr. Cole was a hero. To his own son, Lincoln (Joe Anderson), he was more of an enigma.
Now, six months after he vanished, Lincoln is finally ready to bury the past when Dr. Cole's emergency beacon suddenly goes off. At the urging of his mother, Tess (Leslie Hope), Lincoln reluctantly joins her on a search for his father. To fund the rescue, they agree to let Dr. Cole's cagey ex-producer, Clark (Paul Blackthorne), film the mission documentary-style.
The mixed crew of old friends and new acquaintances includes the missing cameraman's daughter, Lena Landry (Eloise Mumford), Magus mechanic Emilio Valenzuela (Daniel Zacapa) and private security bodyguard Captain Kurt Brynildson (Thomas Kretschmann).
I caught the first two episodes when it premiered, but haven't caught episode 3. It was pretty interesting. You don't see many shows like this so I definitely wanted to try and keep up with it. So, is anyone else watching this show? If so, what are your thoughts?
I am watching it, despite my entire dislike for Television. And next to Fringe, this is my new favorite show. Everything that I study and research is in this show, and some new added twists. It's so worth watching and putting effort into, the story has a subplot that is very strong, but each episode has a mini-plot that will only appear in that series, and they tie it all together. It's just very well done. I also happen to like the first person camera view instead of the actors filmed in a studio. It's more powerful that way.
The only person I don't like is the mother. Sometimes she is a little too dramatic for my tastes. But I really love the mechanic's daughter. She is fantastic. And when ex-producer said: "All I know is when that girl gets spooked, I listen." Brilliant. I just totally love it.
I really recommend this. It's interesting, to say the least.
