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'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. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
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. -- "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." - H. L. Mencken
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.
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. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
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. -- "Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." - H.

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.
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. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing?

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".
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. -- Is a person a failure for doing nothing?
