PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Whodunnit?"
I would rather have The Mole back. But this sounds interesting and similar.

ABC’s Whodunnit? = The Mole + Clue + Murder in Small Town X

by Andy Dehnart / February 6, 2013


ABC will air a new series this summer that sounds very much like The Mole combined with Fox’s Murder in Small Town X, though CSI and the board game Clue are cited as inspirations for Whodunnit?.

There will be a $250,000 prize and nine episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series is from CSI creator Anthony Zuiker and is produced by 51 Minds’ Cris Abrego, perhaps best known for producing the string of VH1 series that surrounded Flavor of Love, though he also produced Cannonball Run 2001 and MTV’s Fear, which were both surprising and inventive.

Vulture’s Joe Adalian said he has “been assured it is NOT Mole 3.0,” but here’s how his piece describes it:

“Sherlocks live together in a luxury mansion and attempt to discover who among them is a ‘murderer.’ One player gets knocked off each week; the remaining contestants will use CSI tools to try to figure out how the faux slaying took place.”

That is totally The Mole’s core structure: one person, presumably working with producers, with others trying to figure it out who it is. And it is also a stripped down version of Murder in Small Town X, which was over-complicated for no reason. I do like the Clue-ish twists, and the use of tools to search for clues, but there is a danger that it could become The Great Escape in the sense that the contestants are just following dumb step by step directions instead of truly investigating on their own. That’ll be tough to pull off but amazing if it’s done well.

However, I don’t want the new to be The Mole, as much as I adored the first two seasons of that show, because the 2008 version was terrible. There is definitely room for a smart, artfully filmed, mind-bending competition series, though.

Sounds interesting, as well as derivative. May have to give it a try.
