NBC's silly new show could be fun... IF enough people die.

Siberia: "Out of the Frying Pan" Review- 8/12/13

We start off with lots of spooky atmospheric stuff as Daniel, Joyce, and Johnny explore the camp. The shows echoes back to the disappearance of the original settlement residents in 1908.

How long are Berglind and Harpreet going to be listed in the opening credits? I suppose until the bitter end, since they're long gone and we're still seeing them.

We (and the contestants) figure out how the Reward Box works. There's some interesting hints that it's all a psychological test, thanks to some convenient writing. Oddly, nobody seems to have opened it up the rest of the way and pulled all of the other items out. Or if they did, there was nothing useful. And we never do find out the significance of the gas mask. (Oddly, Persons Unknown had something similar going on when they handed out a limited number of gas masks.)

There ...

Finale thoughts...
We've all seen cliffhanger season finales before, but this seemed to just cut off mid-scene.

Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed this entire season, up to and including tonight's finale ... but now I'm dying to know what happens next. Which is sign of a successful cliffhanger, true, but I'd hate to have another 'The Glades' situation on my hands.

I've been searching online, and maybe I missed it, but do we know yet if Siberia will be back next year?

Personally, I hope so, I'd even like to purchase the DVD (if it comes out), but with such an unfinished ending I'd have to know the show was coming back. Otherwise, it would be pointless to rewatch this, as enjoyable as I found it.

"A Gathering Fog" Review - 8/26/13
We're walking, we're walking...

That basically sums it up. The groups did a little bit of climbing, and a little bit of burying, but mostly they walked a whole lot.

That's not to say that nothing happened while they were walking. First we found out the fate of Natalie. Yay! I knew her simply leaving in the helicopter hospital was too convenient.

I missed neither Irene nor Miljan. Irene has been kind of boring since she went from Zen archer to wounded dove. Miljan, a little goes a long way and a week or two off wouldn't hurt.

As I noted elsewhere, one thing you have to say about the mostly unknown actors on Siberia. They put everything they've go into acting, bless their little hearts. Sabina's speech was well done, Sam acting as the "go on without me" martyr was good, Johnny was ...Read more

7 Reasons why you should be watching Siberia instead of Under the Dome

Both shows are pretty much about a bunch of people separated from the outside world by supernatural forces. So why should one watch Siberia over UTD?

1. You'll get closure. As far as we know, Siberia hasn't been renewed for Season 2. And based on the way ratings are going, the chances for renewal are unlikely. This all but assures we'll get some finality by the end of this season. Whether they're all eaten by monsters or only a handful get home, at least we'll know they won't be running around in the Siberian wilderness next year. The same can't be said for the residents of Chester's Mill who will continually be trapped Under the Dome until the ratings take a dive. It's a sad day when the ratings dictate the story and not the other way around.

2. You won ...

"First Snow" Review - 8/19/13
As we reach the halfway point in the first (last?) season), this episode was cold. Very cold. It looked cold. Like "The Grey"/Liam Neeson cold. Poor Sam in particularly looked like he was turning into ice even before he got frostbite. Afterward... ugh, a pretty graphic representation (for network TV) of frostbite. Either that, or frostbite is just naturally creepy.

Only one bizarre supernatural occurrence this week, but that was a doozy: summer turns into snow overnight. Fallout from the blast and the green sky, or did they shift through time? Or did time shift back around them?

The directors (two of them-did they split the filming between the two groups?) nicely captured the difference between the group struggling to survive in the wilderness, and the relatively comfortable group back at camp. It'll be even more effective in a week or so the two groups trade positions, comfort-wise ...Read more

"Strange Bedfellows" Review - September 10, 2013
Russian to the Ending?

Well, we get some answers, and not four episodes too soon!

As has been the pattern for the last two weeks, we alternate between the two teams, one at the abandoned research center and the other formerly at the settlement, now captives of the Evenki. Sort of.

This time the settlement/Evenki team found out more secrets. The group at the research center basically tottered around, set up an antenna, shared a few of Joyce's weepy moments, and made contract with the rescue team (or is it? bwah-hah-hah!). They found another revealer box, but since the other group already found out their revealer box was a Skinner box, nothing really new learned here.

So, that leaves us with the Evenki team. Nobody seemed at all curious about the odd-shaped shoes seen at the end of the last episode, until the last few minutes of this ...Read more
