    Yeah...so I'm watching the Blair Survivor Mole project on NBC...which is obviously fake and not even committed to their original premise when they are immediately offered this camp to stay in..Then the Mole...I mean contestant Sabina (Last one shown in the credits) is already there and oddly never shown from the moment they start their run to the camp...obviously intentionally omitted...Soooo Real...Also the fact that the game show is airing in the U.S. means that under FCC rules they cannot have any contests involving intellectual skill on a fake game show (Section 508 of the Communications Act of 1934)...So if we do not see any puzzles etc for prizes (as the real game survivor does) we will know this is indeed fake...Or NBC could lose their FCC license.

    I'm guessing that some people are in cahoots with the producers to fuck with the contestants...

    How the hell did that plant Sabine make it to the cabins first? They did say there are no rules so perhaps the producers helped her out and it technically wasn't cheating because there are no rules..

    Nice...thanks for the Manitoba...I googled that and found the only article that wasn't somehow a re-print of an nbc heavy promo article...and it indeed confirms it's massively fake...

    Watched this earlier after that Ninja show. Went into it blind and stupidly thought it was an actual reality show until they all got spooked by animals making noises.

    There were a few small things before that that made me wonder, but that did it.

    I don't know how I feel about it, but I love the idea behind it.

    Did you watch the entire epi of American Ninja Warrior? My dvr cut out at the end and I was wondering if the final guy made it through? He made it further than anyone else last year so I would like to know how he did. Also, his little girlfriend is hot and strong as shit.

    Before the first 'incident' I'd be making weapons and sweet love to the hippy chick.

    I watched like 15 minutes. I'm out. Because of shaky cam and obvious script.

    It's not fake. It's not even a reality show. Or game show. It's fiction. It's a scripted drama, about a fictional reality show.

    If it was that Bret Stevenson guy, he definitely made it. The show ended with someone succeeding.

    Brett made it to the Venice finals. I really with G4 would run Sauske 28 already.

    I wish just once they would just drop the contestants in the artic or on a island that isn't full of script writers, producers and craft services. you know those motherfuckers are filming on the other side of some all inclusive resort.

    I would love to see an arctic setting in a reality show. That would be hardcore.

    Was this show advertised as being a "real" show? Or was it advertised as the sort of Blair Witch thing that it is?

    I wonder how long they can continue with the pretense of it being real? After a while, there's no credible way the cameras would still be rolling.

    I liked the second episode better than the first, but I'm still not sold on it.

    It will continue to be something I download six days late and puzzle over.

    *Puzzle over my stance on the show, not its legitimacy.

    And by the one "rule" set by the "host," a person could win just by waving a gun or something around and backing every other contestant over the white line.

    Looks like a set up for either a robot/time portal thing, or UFO's and aliens.

    Totally fake.

    Yes, yes. It is a fake drama set up as a reality show.

    And I'm leaning towards aliens or something. I forget the history of the backdrop, something about nuclear fallout and a mystery crater.

    And just now I remember the geek kid finding the three legged frog in the first episode. That should have been the thing that made me realize it was fake. Maybe it will be Hills Have Eyes nuke mutant fuck fest.

    They fucked up by taking five episodes to reveal the producers were all missing and possibly dead. But now that they've finally got past that, I think the show may go for the full-on crazy now.

    Season finale next week. I guess I'm the only sucker that kept watching.

    It's ridiculous but I still kind of enjoy it as a wind down show on Monday nights.
