This show reminds me of the "house" series on PBS were people went to a location and lived like pioneers in the 1800's, or like the first pilgrims. It's a social experiment. I know we are geared to seeing competitive reality shows with eliminations and prizes, so the audience for this show may be slow to build. At first it sounds great, no parental units to tell you when to wake up etc.... But lets face it, it will be a cultural shock. No TV, no Cell phones, No text messaging, No ipods, No take out, No refrigerator full of full and sodas, that alone will weird out the kids. After all who will cook, who will wash the clothes. Garanteed there one of the older kids will want to boss everyone and do no work. What will be the incentive for these kids to work together? Bet some had mom and dad waiting on them hand and foot. Temper tantrums, you bet.Originally Posted by remote_goddess;2537974;
Initially I had no desire to see the show, but all the scandals and lawsuit talk has piqued my interest mmmm..... wonder if that is why the spin doctors released all those press kits to everyone?
If nothing else some grad student is gong ga ga at having a social experiment on this scale to observe and write a thesis about. Seriously, how is a society put together from scatch? Think about it. If we had a pan-epedimic or God Forbid a nuke or two go off and our economic sturture is devasted and there are many, many deaths how would the remaining population survive especially if all the adults were gone? Considering the adults on Survivor can't even start a fire, except for Michelle of course this could be a very interesting show.
