Has a fake feel to it ... like I'm being had. Maybe it's just me. :dozey:
It's supposed to be fake...like shows like The Office or Parks & Rec.
Well, I guess that answers that then.
I watched it last night, not bad
Yeah, like the take-off on the reality survival shows.
If not for Sigma spilling the beans, I would have continued to watch this show thinking it was just a badly-made reality competition. Thanks for the heads-up, 1914.
I frankly didn't know it was a scripted(?) series and that a lot of people knew about it. This one caught me by surprise. Who would have suspected that the networks had invented a new genre? I wonder if they'll call it "Fake Reality"? Oxymoronic, no?
At least when the networks ask me to suspend reality and watch the likes of Lucy Liu playing the part of Watson, I know what to expect going in. But when I get no warning and instead get, well ... Siberia, I sorta feel used and predisposed to ignore it.
They should have kept the Icelandic girl ... at least she had the body to keep my mind occupied.
Yes, and interesting premise, a supernatural series using the reality-show format. Would never watch an actual reality series, but this could be good, need a few more eps to decide.
The whole plot is that the people are contestants on a reality show and initially they think what is going on is part of the show. I'm not sure how that could be missed. lol
"In 1908, a meteor hit deep into the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska. Now, more than 100 years later, 16 contestants descend on Tunguska unknowing of the land's mysterious past. When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the contestants are met with the chilling realization that the strange occurrences are not part of the show. With their safety threatened, competing contestants must band together in an effort to survive."
Like I said, I didn't know. Had I read this, I would have ignored it from the start.
I think you should try to wipe out the spoiler from your mind, and look at this show the way you were at first, as a reality show... That's what I'm doing and hoping they all have at least one chance at a food reward before they become the food. :goodjob:
That's good advice, oldschool, but even as a true reality show (which we now realize it's not), it sucked. So Reality or Fake Reality doesn't really matter; it's just a bad show. Both the wife and I agree and we've killed the timer.
Hmmm. Well, it's a scripted drama with a suspense/horror "theme" - of the type "Under The Dome" represents except the folks here are trapped in an isolated meteor crater, sort of an inverted dome. And like reality show contestants the characters are disposable but more so. It's an idea I like.
That's why I find out what a show is about before I decide whether or not I'm going to start recording it.
True, but I was surfing the EPG and ran into it. I set the timer to catch the first episode. The rest is history.
Yep ... and we deleted both timers. With us, "Scripted" doesn't hold the lofty status you seem to give it.
Let's face it, all shows are scripted. Even the "reality" shows are scripted. I can't stand "reality" shows.
That's why your name is RunnerFL and mine is Henry. Two people with different tastes.
Since I have always been interested in Tunguska event, I have put on season pass. If it becomes a must see show I will watch it. If I hear anything about zombies I will pass.
Well, it's scripted ... so, the sky's the limit.
Every show is scripted...
