Watch Siberia, NBC’s Faux Reality Show

NBC's new summer show Siberia is a scripted horror drama masquerading as a reality contest show — and it really does nail most of the reality conventions we've come to expect from similar Survivor-like series. People squabble over beds, brag about "clicking" with the cute guys, and complain that it's a competition, not a friend-making endeavor. There's even a genial hippie dude and an overly glamorous woman who can't stop flipping her hair. The show premieres Monday, but you can watch the first full episode online now. Please, ABC Family, steal this idea and reimagine Kid Nation as a Hunger Games–Lord of the Flies murder-mystery series.
