Anyone watch this?
It's up against Dome.
I'm trying to think of a polite way to say "It's a great show about "Reality TV" and all the annoying people die"
That's the premise of the show.
Not even worth a Spoiler Alert.

I read that it's a cross between Survivor and Lost.

I saw the first episode and it was ok. It wasn't mind blowing, but it was ok.

OK. I have an interest in the area so I watch.
The show is ~meh~. I work on Monday nights and baseball is on the Lobby/Lounge Relatively Big Screen TV.
I watch a day or two later On-Demand @ home.

I like the Brooklyn Guy because he knows Russian.
Keep your eye on the Israeli Chick. She knows some Tunguska stuff.

I hope the show wraps up in this summer season.

Huey helicopters in Russia. Downhill from there.

I'm not a film school student/IMDB reviewer or an actor (OK, 2 uncredited "Extra" roles on "Miami Vice" ) but I do a better job acting and writing at my night job.

I'd be happy to write and act horribly for a SyFy show. If you know someone, send me a PM and I'll get a head-shot.

I've been watching it. The Acting and writing make bad shows look good.
Though I'm curious about the "mysterious" stuff that has been happening around the camp. That is more interesting then the people in the camp.

Yeah, the writing and acting is pretty bad, but I'm still watching just to see what the hell is going on.

Yeah, the Israeli chick knows more than she's telling.
And while I can't stand most of the "contestants" on the "show" the guy from Brooklyn isn't that bad, mostly because he seems to help the "plot" along.
And some of the women are pretty good looking.

I wonder how she made it to camp before the two men? I didn't see her at the starting point either.

So she is a mystery.

I work on Monday nights and the TV is set to Red Sox.
I watch Siberia and Dome on-demand later in the week.

The DJ guy needs to be killed.
The Aussie chick is a bitch and has skinny legs.
The Actress chick will atone for her sins.
The Korean chick had value. OW!
The Programmer guy has some merit but is too, too, sensitive.
The Rodeo guy is every bad jock from high school.
The Brooklyn guy speaks Russian. He will live.
The Israeli Chick has a clue and is on a personal "mission" necklace
The New Orleans chick is a "Star Trek Red Shirt".

IMDB has some clues: How many episodes per character.

I hope this concludes at the end of the summer.
MOST of the reason I watch it is the Russian/Tunguska thing. I wouldn't watch for other locations.

Russian kid at work lives in the Urals. "This is a stupid movie. I hope I see the end of it! A-mail me!" He has some really cool Siberian folklore/stories. Old: bears/wolves/creatures. New: Radioactive Uranium Miners/Stalin Gulags/Aliens. Great stories! Best with the accent and looking up Russian words.

Although the acting is over-the-top, I'm kind of enjoying the way Johnny constantly flips out and starts cursing.

Edit: after watching the latest episode I find I'm enjoying this show.
The remote setting and general strangeness is working, I actually look forward to seeing what happens next.
But I don't like that the good characters (except Sabina) are all going on the trek to the tower.

This show is actually getting better with each episode. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Some people at abovetopsecret.com are watching.

Is anybody watching Siberia TV series, notice the subliminal glyphs?

I found it amusing.

Agreed. The show reminds be a lot of Rubicon. Rubicon was on AMC or A&E for just one season. It was slow to start and rather boring. Then the last 3 episodes hit, and it was WTF!! Awesomeness. It made me regret deleting the previous Rubicon shows because I had wanted to go back and re-watch them.

I think Siberia is a low budget Lost, in in some cases better then Lost, just because of the POV.

Yeah, like a low budget Lost.
The drama kicked up a bit right before the four on the trek to the beacon found the science research buildings. I thought they were all going to die out there in the snow.
And I usually hate the "imbedded camera-man" POV that Siberia uses, but it doesn't seem that bad on this show.

I agree, the POV work seems ok.
Though I'm curious how long their battery packs will last.

The batteries are a big suspension of disbelief thing for me.

The thing that I find very cool about the latest episode is the footprints. Just seeing them reminded me of a short story I read as a kid called The Night Thing. It was about a town in south England in 1885 that got covered in mysterious "hoofprints" that pretty much defied explanation.

A quick google turns up a couple of links: »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil's_Fo ··· otprints

»www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/engl ··· nts.html

That was an interesting read. Thanks for that.
Kinda interesting how old "forgotten" or largely unknown folklore makes for some interesting modern TV subject matter.

One more week and season one is over. I hope they wrap it up, or at least get to do a second season to finish it.

Siberia vs. Dome, coin flip @ 9:30.

TV Guide says: End of Season One. Huh.

Tesla tower?
The "Footwear". Years ago when I worked in manufacturing, I made some Dinosaur/Bird strap-on-feet things to leave footprints in the snow/beach sand. Company lawyer said they were a lawsuit waiting to happen, "Like Lawn-Darts".

OK, that was strange.

No. The show was renewed.
They moved into a lovely time-share in an evacuated town.
New cast member. Knows the Israeli chick.

Other stuff happened too.

Tune in next Summer!
Same Siberian time (UTC+08:00),
Same Siberian channel!

Ah, ok. At least it was renewed.
I'm getting to hate the cliffhanger ending though.

That new guy was the "host" from the early part of the season. Hence why he knew them and said "You're not supposed to be here"
Which was an interesting twist seeing how the producer camp was all torn up.


Good to see it was renewed. For some reason I'm liking this show a lot better then Lost, though it has lower production value and a lower grade of actors.
