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."

4. "summary writing"
LAST EDITED ON 10-29-07 AT 11:47 AM (EST)

Snidget, in my defense there is no "official summary" schedule or roster for this show. I thought and mentioned about writing for ep. 1, but didn't get inspired. The only obligation to folks here was, well, zero. Just to my desire to be a DAW.

I'm an experienced writer and do produce on deadline when called upon. Methinks this show doesn't lend itself to a heavy snark factor in a summary -- more to VerucaSalt's type of analysis. It just doesn't look right to rag on kids who are trying.

Ratings:

I imagine the producers are imagining how to get a season two plotted. I haven't even investigated how many shows they have scheduled for this season. The ratings are good enough for them to be picked up, assuming they can get past child-labor, endangerment, and out of school complaints.

It seems difficult to me to replicate the freshness of the pioneering Bonanza City concept. They probably need a change of locale while still keeping the self-contained, self-sufficient civil organism idea. The kids' interactions will be different but similar, and I too worry about a descent into "twists" and "never before ..." things. This show doesn't have the complexity of Survivor's social and challenge dynamics. It's more about watching them interact and mature while dealing with benign "real adult world" responsibilities.

Maybe they could do "On The Lot" season 2 (or On The Stage Broadway), dividing their "districts" into different production and business elements. Run a campground, farm, fair, or amusement park. How do you design challenges into such a theme?


The big problem, I think, is keeping the danger element as close to zero as possible.
