it did get worst, problem is, it is starting to get bad enough to watch it to see how low it will go.

Bullets? As a clue to where a gun might be hidden. Right, because every reality show would want it's contestants to be armed and shooting at every little noise they hear in the woods.

Yes, it is approaching train-wreck levels. Most "reality" shows are totally in the can before they air, correct? I wonder if they filmed this one that way.

This show is a guilty pleasure for me. We all know it's fake, we all know the actors are trying to ad lib according to a scripted storyline. Keeping that in mind, let's just see where it goes.

I chuckle at the thought of a reality survival show giving bullets and a gun as a "reward". Also that the abundant food source (the mushrooms) are poisonous.

There will probably be space aliens and/or monsters (thanks to the awful heiroglyphics). I had to freeze frame the rock paintings to appreciate that the set designers sacrificed a number of Sharpies in order to draw on the rock. LOL!

Instead of crying about the show, I choose to watch it with extremely low expectations, until it makes me puke (i.e., when expectorations exceed expectations). So grab a barf bag and a popcorn bag and let's enjoy this for what it's worth! After all, it's still better than any Real Housewives "reality" show.

It is getting to be more of an interest to see how bad it can get for me. I think I'll let recordings pile up to see how soon it gets cancelled and probably delete them after that.

At first I thought it may be a number of real contestants with ringers sprinkled in, but it's looking more and more like just bad drama very poorly done. Kind of like Joe Schmo where we ultimately find out that we (the viewers) are the schmo for watching it.

I can't believe that they actually killed a deer for this fake-ass show.

I can only hope that they didn't really kill a Siberian tiger.

How long before the aliens arrive?

I quit watching reality shows because I found them too fake. Trying to create fake drama.

So, this show is a 100% fake reality show. I absolutely don't want to watch that.

FYI...I came into the thread because I thought a show about Siberia might actually be interesting. Didn't come in just to thread crap.

Okay, time for a reality check for those of you confusing the issues:
This fictional show set in Siberia is actually filmed in Manitoba, Canada. Any dead Siberian tiger is actually a manufactured prop, just like the polar bear which was killed in the first couple of episodes of "Lost". Not only would the dead deer also be a prop, but I'll even venture so far as to suggest that the actor portraying Tommy wasn't even actually killed in the first episode.

Just sit back and enjoy the adventure, and imagine this show as if things went really haywire on "Survivor".

That's probably the worst to date.

The deer was probably a road kill that they obtained.

Since they're short on food, are they going to haul what's left of that tiger back to camp? It's a fresh kill so it should be edible without any danger, especially if cooked well.

Just went to watch last nights episode, and my Tivo had it recorded as Siberia, but it was a one hour special on the royal baby.

did it air in any markets last night?

I did a remote schedule from my phone and when I checked today, it wasn't there. I thought my scheduling had failed.

No, it is being aired next week so you may have to manually select it because your Tivo will think it's a repeat.

This. I manually reselected the episode on my DirecTV DVR.

I wanted to like this show, but the acting is just so over the top terrible I don't think I can watch it anymore. I think they could have done something with it if they had good actors but I understand why they couldn't hire anyone that was 'known'.

Well, the teaser at the end of the 7/29 episode gives me even more of a cabin the woods feeling.

at this point I'm just watching to see how the story turns out and sortof grinding through the bad acting.

Ha! I knew it! I've had 4 of these in a folder and tonight I decided to watch a couple. What a horrible idea... People that like reality shows AND Dramas will hate it equally.

I'm NOT going to delete the SP though. So maybe there's an unintentional method to thier madness. This is SO bad, I have to see how bad it can get. I'll probably make liberal use of my 30SS.

I'm too far in now to quit. I'm wondering if any of these people actually auditioned, or if they are just the only ones that showed up. There are only two I can think of that are playing it well enough to look natural, the Israeli soldier and the rodeo guy.

I may be in the minority, but I'm really enjoying this cheese-fest!

The characters are more believable than those on Survivor/Big Brother and the plot is more consistent than the one for Under the Dome (I realize that neither of those statements set a very high bar).

I find this show entertaining and I'm looking forward to seeing where they go with the sci-fi/horror/mystery elements. I just hope they give us a solid resolution at the end of the season.

Yeah, this show has gone so far off the rails that I have to stay with it now. After that green fluorescent sky episode, I have to see what the end game is.

If that had happened during an actual reality show taping, they wouldn't wait to get that footage on the air. It would be on the news the next day.

I am really hoping, now that they've found the producers missing, that they will hang a lamp on their 'spoofiness' and continue with the testimonials. <grin>

If this was presented as a drama and maybe seen from the point of view of one of the "contestants" who wasn't in on it, it might be good. As it is, I'm in for the duration.

How about Sabina discovering her own skeleton, complete with the locket? And she had stashed the missing video camera into her secret cave/lair along with the missing ammo and food? She was also the first to arrive at the camp in the premiere.

Yeah, something extra sinister is up with her.
