The Hollywood Reporter’s Barry Garron reviewed the upcoming second version of Riverworld on SyFy (their first attempt was in 2003), and the results were not pretty at all…”Bottom line: Disjointed and preposterous” are the first words, and “…it is hard to single out any character as being more one-dimensional than the rest,” later on. Not exactly ringing praise. However, there was one bright spot: Where the father and son production duo of Robert Halmi Sr. and Jr. typically aim for the international market, making it ” heavy on action, special effects and attractive stars and skimp on clever dialogue, skillful plotting and character development. In that sense, “Riverworld” does not disappoint.” Riverworld airs Sunday, April 18th, at 7pm ET.
