    Utopias have never work before. I don't think they are going to start now.

    Oh well, so many misfits stuffed in a 'society' and some wonder why it was so dumb and didn't seem to be working at all.

    I couldn't make it through the first half of the first episode. I hated every single cast member.

    I made it through the first episode and half of the second before I gave up on it.... I just could not believe that it was that stupid after the first episode and had to see the second to see if it really was.... IT WAS THAT STUPID...

    It was an interesting experiment while it lasted, but I do agree that the cast did this one in.

    It was a cast hand-picked by the producers. The fact that the 'cast' was mostly societal misfits should have given some hints as to how bad this would go. And in that, I wasn't disappointed.

    Some of the "misfits" were likeable ... even Hex. Jonathan - whom I wouldn't list as a misfit - was very likeable. Bri? not so much. I agree that Red would be, and is, a misfit, as is the amorous Dedeker.

    I guess the producers envisioned circumstances somehow changing these folks when faced with the responsibility of creating a new society.

    So much for that!

    I did like cantankerous Rob, though.

    I worked on this show for the past 2 months as one of the light board operators. I did about 5 days a week, and 12 hours a day.

    I will say that it was not scripted, and there was actually very little interference from production. Once they were picked, the "pioneers" were pretty much on their own to make it all happen.

    I'm sure Red didn't care, but I'm equally sure the Bella shed a few tears over the snub.
