I just tried to watch last nights episode and it was preempted for the Royal birth.

 

WTF? Has NBC given up on Siberia already?

They probably noticed our household had given up on the program so they did too. :sure:

No, the whole world thought it was necessary to preempt everything for shows on the child's birth.  The guide data had even been updated here with a show title so new it even mentioned the child was a prince. 

 

The show is still scheduled for next week, as of right now.

There are no actors in reality tv... Siberia on the other hand is a tv show about reality tv.

This show just got really interesting now.  If anybody has seen Joss Wheldon's "Cabin In The Woods" should know what I mean.  It is too bad for those who gave up after three episodes.

So last nights episode should be on my DVR? Awesome, I'm just surprised NBC didn't  preempt it for the Kenyan fly swatting championship.

Finally got a chance to watch this weeks episode.  Suspicion confirmed.  The camera crew has been positioned to be as vulnerable as the fake contestants.  This will now provide additional bodies for the meat grinder but does anyone else wonder why they continue to film anyway?  One theory is that everything is a setup and the crew is in the dark.  The other more obvious theory is that the mysterious Sabina is the one setting the traps and killing everyone off.    
 
Either way Sam the bouncer should be holding a few crew members feet (including Joyce) to the fire just to be sure they have no information.  Once you eliminate them from the equation you can then look to others in the group for culpability.  Still cannot believe nobody brings up the fact that Sabina just showed up and was not with the group when they first arrived.  The mysterious bones with necklace could have been a dream sequence or better yet the reason she is there in the first place.  A twin sister killed in an earlier production of the same show and now Sabina is getting her revenge on not only the crew but the contestants as well.
 
Don't really care if it is a supernatural force, sasquatch or Sabina the eradication of contestants and crew needs to accelerate or this will quickly become a yawn fest.  Oh, and one more request, they need to bring back Berglind Icey.  :)

Yeah, that was a snoozer.  Why did it have to take so long just to get to the research facility?  And the whole we will stay here and bury her.  First thing that came to mind was the ground is probably frozen so that's not happening.  They have brought some good possibilities into the plot now just get the plot moving.  More of these contestants and camera crew have to get the axe each week.

Spoilers guys, spoilers...  Some people haven't watched that specific episode yet.  If you want to discuss what happened in the specific episode please start a thread dedicated to that episode.

 

 

That being said, I'm definitely digging this show.
