La Foret (The Forest) is the kind of show where a major character can be trapped in a burning room and still not generate tension. The French import investigates the death of 16-year-old Jennifer and disappearance of her friends Maya and Oceane. With only six episodes to tell its story, the bland plot moves quickly, reducing characters to a collection of cliches. The Forest has the trappings of your standard mystery show: missing girls, a community with buried secrets, enigmatic characters to give the small town personality. But it's still a tedious, paint-by-numbers job that will bore genre fans and fail to win over casual viewers.
