Siberia Gets a Little Stranger

Love and Lights were in the air on Monday's new episode of NBC's Siberia, "Fire in the Sky".  With eleven contestants still living off the land in the remote area friendships are bound to form, although deciphering who can be trusted and who's just playing the game has become a difficult challenge.  In addition this episode brings into question how many of the strange events we've witnessed are created in order to scare players into forfeiting the game and what real dangers lie amongst them.  Let's take a look at the all new Siberia.
  • The first eerie event in this episode came when Daniel awoke to find a spear, lodged in the ground outside their cabin.  Attached was a note written in Russian that Sam translated as "get out".  Later when Sabina was studying the spear she determined it was authentic, made from real ox bone and balanced for throwing.  Although Neeko had his doubts, as he believes this was one of the many scare tactics executed by the producers, Sabina explained that if it was a prop, it was a good one.  I believe it was another message from the beast in the woods.  Whether they are in danger only if they stray too far or even if they remain in the settlement is not yet clear, but obviously there is more going on around them than they have yet to realize and the lines between production tactics and actual danger is becoming more blurred with each new episode.
  • Neeko tried to show Carolina the mauled tiger that he and Sabina found at the end of the last episode, but strangely it had been removed with no trace of drag marks and all that remained were the blood stains where the carcass once lied.  Although questions still linger; did the strange beast put it there as a warning, much like the spear, or was it just a ruse that the producers set up to frighten contestants?  I believe it is the former, both the tiger and the spear were attempts to warn the contestants of their impending doom by the strange Lost-like presence in the forest. 
  • Johnny camped out alone in the woods after being accused of stealing the food and burning down the shed.  He wasn't very upset about it as he started his own fire and began setting traps to catch his own food.  Unfortunately, while it is clear his trap caught a deer, something had ripped the entire dead animal from the contraption.  What made it more odd, is that whatever did this was able to pull apart the doe including the bone, muscle and flesh cleanly, leaving only a small foot behind.
  • Miljan finally found his voice this week and had a lot of airtime allowing us to understand him a bit more.  While he is a jokester at heart and likes to play around, he is also extremely manipulative and not scared to cross boundaries in order to win the game.  When Daniel voiced disapproval of Johnny's actions and claimed he wanted to play the game like Neeko, together and helping each other out, Miljan planted doubt into both Daniel and Sam's heads by claiming as a professional athlete Neeko plays games for a living and that he shouldn't be trusted as it's all part of his plan.  Later when Esther decides to move out of Miljan's bunk and over to Natalie's in the girls' cabin, he questioned her move claiming they made great roommates and he wanted some romance to go on.  When Esther explained that she doesn't do romance and this isn't a dating show he attacked her by grabbing her throat and pushing her up against a cot whilst telling her she's not leaving.  Although he dismissed it as another one of his "jokes" and downplayed the whole incident, Esther was obviously rattled by his actions.  I'm not so sure that he was less kidding and more playing the game; purposely trying to terrify Esther in hope that it will give him a kind of hold over her and thus an advantage.  Later, while trolling the woods he came across a totem pole carved with precision.  Oddly, he doesn't seem particularly interested in who did this or why, instead he begins a humorous dialogue with the relic naming it Ogdy (this will be important later), and claiming he is an old high school friend.  Whether his actions are just for fun or if he actually has something wrong with him is unknown, but no one can debate the fact that there is something strange about him.  We also were finally introduced to the strange symbol that haunts the Siberia credits.  Miljan noticed it on a tree and, as hypothesized, it did represent a kind of compass rose that lead him to another tree with the same symbol and another and another.  Finally at the end of the trail he discovered a metal box hidden beneath the ground.  Inside was an old journal, likely from the original settlers, that appeared to be written in Russian as he notices the Cyrillic lettering.  While investigating his find, he noticed he was being watched by a strange man hiding amongst the trees.  Whether it was a cameraman, a producer, or someone else entirely, maybe even an original settler, is not yet clear but Miljan quickly hid his find and ran off, protecting his treasure.  This also reminded me of Neeko's comment about always feeling like something is watching him; what strange presence inhabits these woods is one of many questions still to be answered, but it seems like there is more than the beast out there.  Regarding the journal, I believe that Miljan will reach out to Sam in order to help translate it, but not until he is sure he cannot benefit solely from his find first.  Miljan is in the game to win and doesn't seem the type to reach out for help until it is absolutely necessary.
  • Esther continues to be as manipulative as ever, enticing a cameraman to join her skinny dipping in the river.  After she insisted they record their escapade and had him promise to erase it, he frantically found her claiming the tape has gone missing and it is vital they retrieve it.  To his surprise, Esther informed him that she's hidden the proof of their activity and it's in his best interest to help her win, because if he doesn't it might fall into the wrong hands and he certainly doesn't want his wife finding out.  She tops it off by insulting him, saying he caught on quickly to her extortion routine although the other cameramen said he was a bit slow.  She really has no boundaries, maybe she should stay with Miljan! 
  • Natalie found herself, this episode, feeling lonely and scared thus entertaining thoughts of going home.  She's not so into the game that she's willing to risk her life and possibly end up dead, like Tommy, and says that since she really doesn't need the money, there's no point in continuing to play.  She misses her friends and family and seemed ready to cross the forfeit threshold, until she felt an unexpected spark when Annie made a move and kissed her.  While at first in shock she stormed off, but later when Annie approached her to apologize for making her feel uncomfortable, she returned the affection.  For now it seems this new bond is enough to make her stay as she is open and in need of any type of companionship in the lonely woods of Siberia.
  • Sam and Daniel struck up an unlikely friendship and Sam even went as far to say that if he had a son, he would be proud if he was like Daniel.  Daniel further romances Irene and rather than the awkward staring we have seen before he took the dive and revealed his feelings.  Initially he attempted to give her a flower but upon learning that Irene isn't flattered by a gift that's dying he instead found a shiny blue rock and presented it to her as a token of his love.
  • Suddenly, while the guys were discussing going out to find Carolina who was still in the woods with Johnny, the entire cabin structure started to shake.  Once the rattling ceased, they ran outside to see what was happening.  They were shocked and in awe to find the entire sky lit up in an eerie green color casting down like an avocado moon.  In addition big streaks of light streamed across the sky in different patterns, like a well-produced studio light show.  While many believed the producers were behind the strange events that have surrounded them in previous episodes, it was clear that this was nothing they could have created.  In addition, it was just as Victoria had predicted, "green fire in the sky", and had similarities to the eyewitness accounts of the real Tunguska Event.  This will force the contestants to be a little bit more suspicious of what are scare tactics created by the producers and what is going on in the Siberian forest that no one can control. 
  • At the beginning of the episode, Carolina found Johnny alone in the woods and tried to bring him back to the settlement.  While he wasn't interested in returning, the last we saw of them was a quarrel and Johnny angrily chasing after her, before the mini-earthquake and the eerie lights in the sky appeared.  During the light show, Carolina returned to camp appearing like she had been attacked with cuts and blood over her body.  She claimed that she had no memory of what happened and barley managed to spit out that the last thing she recalled was fighting with Johnny.  Neeko and Sam were outraged and had enough of Johnny, so they embarked on a search to find him and punish him for his actions.  While at first I thought this whole thing was another game-playing attempt by Carolina to further discredit Johnny, he soon returned to camp, also dazed and confused, not able to recall what happened either.  Sam mentioned to focus on Johnny's hands, that if he had hurt Carolina his hands would show the telltale signs.  Natalie, clearly no stranger to abuse, pointed out his tattered fists and though Daniel recognized Johnny's absent gaze and tried to stand up for him, due to the fact he was obviously not all there, Neeko returned just in time to jump Johnny.  Carolina ran to his defense, insisting she was sure Johnny wasn't the inflictor of her wounds, but doubts still lie about what happened when they were alone in the woods.  Obviously, something attacked Carolina and Johnny likely attempted to fight it off, but what it was and why it bombarded them is another question for the books.  Johnny confronted Carolina about setting him up for burning down the shed and her inability to even look at him was enough of an answer for him to be sure.  When chasing after him she calls out in Spanish which is when it finally clicks for Daniel where he knows her from.  He called Carolina out as being an actress and she was caught.  She claimed she didn't want to set Johnny up, but the producers told her to.  We are left with the entire camp in shock upon the discovery that Carolina is not who she says at all, rather a plant from the producers, an actress, who is apparently taking orders to incite drama and tension amongst the others.  I am sure we will see this addressed in next week's episode as they must decide whether to cast her out, use her to gain more information about the production's stunts, or keep her there constantly wondering if what she says is true or if it's all just an act.
I think I've wrapped up all the major events in this week's episode of Siberia, I will re-watch to ensure noting critical is missing.  While some questions were answered and more were posed, I will update my theories post (Siberia: Theories Blown Open!) accordingly.  What surprised me most about this episode was that before I didn't think the producers had much to do with the strange happenings, finding out that Carolina was a plant adds a whole new possibility that some of the events are staged and has nothing to do with the 1908 event, the original settlers or the strange beast in the woods.  In addition the man Miljan saw makes me wonder if the beast is not the only thing creeping in the forest.  So many mysteries, so much intrigue, we must stay tuned to get all our questions answered!  Watch Siberia Mondays on NBC and check back here for weekly recaps and updates to the many questions and theories that surround this enticing new show!  Enjoy!

Siberia: Theories Blown Open!

Throughout the first episodes of Siberia we have slowly been leaked clues about the mysteries underneath the reality competition.  While I have individual posts recapping the events and oddities, I thought it would be a good idea to just lay out what we know and hypothesize regarding what is really going on.  This post is based on all the information we have learned thus far under the assumption you are up to date with the episodes.  If not, I encourage you to check out my previous posts where you can easily browse through the events to get the gist of what has happened.  I am a mathematician, particularly a logician, so I accept the premises we have been given as truth and try to find my way to a logical conclusion, but in a fictional show anything goes!  Below I point out the real events of 1908, as well as what we have seen, to try and better understand the story within.  I would love to hear your thoughts, as well as start a dialogue, so please feel free to comment!  Let's check out the questions Siberia has posed so far, enjoy!
Check out my updated post with more facts & theories: Siberia Theories That Will Blow Your Mind!
  1. What happened to the original settlers?

    • While I normally like to base all my theories only on what we see in the show, I made an exception here because this is a real event in Siberian history and with a bit of research I was able to find out a few interesting facts:
      1. The "Tunguska Event" happened at 7:15 AM on June 30, 1908; it is the biggest event of its kind in known history.  People observed what looked to be fire in the sky or a "second sun" falling into our atmosphere.
      2. While researchers have tried to explain it away as a comet or meteor, no one can seem to come to a consensus as the minerals found and the eyewitness accounts don't quite line up with either theory.
      3. Atop that there was no evidence left behind, such as a piece of a meteor or comet like would be expected.  Instead for the days following the event the skies continued to glow which is a phenomenon having to do with ice particles (which were found at the site) that has also been seen when space shuttles enter the earth's atmosphere.
      4. The shape had what is referred to as a "wingspan" resembling a butterfly.
      5. To make it even more eerie, when overhead photos were taken of the site, they were ordered to be burned.
      6. While theories are all over the place, the strangest was the idea that it was a black hole traveling through Earth, but it was dismissed because there was no evidence it came out the other side.
    • Although I am pretty good with my sciences, I am no meteor, comet or black hole expert but this info did spark a few theories I find to be plausible.
      1. The original event was an alien space craft.  It would explain why it left no remnants; either because the craft was moved, left earth, or has the ability to cloak itself in order to not be seen.  (I realize that I am talking about a real event and am implying there are actually aliens in the Siberian woods, but I'm going out on a limb in order to theorize what's happening on the fictional show.)
      2. Due to the fact there was no evidence of a black hole exiting on the other side of Earth, it could possibly have been a wormhole which is believed in fringe science to have the capabilities to transfer objects, people, beasts, etc. through space and time.  I like this theory a bit more because there is no need to explain how a spacecraft left or remained undetected, rather it could be that the wormhole simply transported alien creatures from light-years away to earth and they remain in the Siberian woods.
    • Even after all this you still have to ask yourself, what happened to the original settlers?  Were they killed by the aliens?  Were they transported back through the worm hole or on the ship?  Were they effected by the event and possibly mutated like the frog?  Are they still there?  I know that last one seems impossible, maybe even improbable, due to the age they must be.  However, if the extraterrestrial event did affect their composition in some way, their lifespan could have been extended.  Plus I don't believe for a second that after a hundred-plus years a bracelet from an original settler would still be just laying in shallow waters (referring to what Sam found in episode 3; see Siberia Gets Into the Thick of It).  Unless the beast also thought it to be a good luck charm and has been wearing it around, could the settlers have been transformed into the beings and Anne held onto it all this time?  The similar name to Annie also made me think of a House on Haunted Hill type of situation where the cast members are descendants of the original settlers.  No matter how you slice it, right now I have no real answer to this question; but I do have some concrete theories now that I know more about the original event and I hope you do too.  There is a little more about what could have happened to the settlers in the sections below.
  2. What is the beast in the woods?

    • While at first I thought that the unknown beast in the woods could have been formed through science experimentation, which could also explain the mutated frog, DNA manipulation didn't come until around World War II, well after this event.  In addition the cave drawings showing the beast seems to be from long before that.  (More about both of these are in their own sections below.)
    • Whether a creation of science or an alien it is clear that this beast is big and strong.  I originally hypothesized that it was an Alien vs. Predator type situation where they visit Earth, but it has become clear that however they came to be they have been part of the Siberian habitat for thousands of years.  In addition, if they are only visitors we know that at least one got left behind.  It could have been left to guard the area, it is possible the settlers were transformed and are still there, but we know they have come back at least once and I think they're about to pay another visit! 
    • I don't believe they are predators by nature.  They don't seem interested in attacking the contestants and I'm not sure if Tommy wandered into their area or if they hold the mushrooms to be valuable, as they attacked him right after the fungi was uprooted, implying they were offended in some way.  In real history, when a group went to study the impact site of the Tunguska Event, their local guides refused to go too far in fear of the "Valleymen".  I believe this is what the cameraman was referring to after Tommy's attack when he repeated "I saw them" in Russian.  It was also interesting that when Daniel and Sabina were being chased by the beast, when they stopped it stopped like its goal was to run them off rather than attack them.  The other big event was the mauled tiger at the end of "Lyin' and Tiger and Bare", that posed the question: why would the beast attack the tiger?  I think that because it obviously didn't eat the tiger and it was practically placed right outside the settlement, it served as the beast's way of warning the contestants not to veer to deep into the woods.  While I firmly believe the beast is really an alien that traversed a wormhole, the question of what happened to the settlers still there bothers me.  Did they stray too far into these "Valleymen's" territory?  Possibly, in line with the cave art discussed below, they tried to hunt the beast like the early humans and met their demise.  I also question the number of beasts, is there only one or do they have their own settlement of many?  These are all plausible questions that I don't yet have answers for.
  3. What do the cave drawings represent and why are they important?

    • If I continue with my axiom that the original event, as well as the beast, is extraterrestrial in nature, rather than man-made, then I would have to account for its presence before the 1908 event.  What I originally discounted as a sun, upon repeat views I noticed there is a sun as well as a large spiral in the cave drawings that reminds me of the wormholes in the series Sliders.  This could easily have been the ancient peoples' way of depicting either a spaceship, that the 1908 reports described as a "second sun", or my leading theory, a wormhole.  This means that the beast is an alien in the woods and has come to Earth before 1908.  The drawings themselves didn't really seem that cryptic to me, it showed early humans using spears to kill the beast and, if you look closely, the being seems to have a weapon of its own in hand.  Thus our beloved cast might not just be up against aliens, wormholes, and a superior being but enhanced weaponry as well.  The description I used in my blog for that episode(see Siberia Goes Deeper into the Woods) was an Anubis-looking creature, similar to human in form, with two-pronged feet (which matches the tracks found in the woods near Tommy's death site), three-pronged hands and a hooded cobra-like head.  I think the important thing to take from the drawing is simply that Siberians have been fighting whatever "it" is for thousands of years.
  4. What secrets can be deduced from the mutated frog?

    • In the first episode Daniel found a frog with an extra leg.  While this could be nothing, as this has happened before in nature, I don't think the show would include it if it wasn't important.  My first thoughts were that it had to do with the unknown presence in the woods.  Possibly that the beast is a mutated human and the same thing caused malformations in the frog.  While I'm not totally sure (now that I am leaning towards wormhole aliens, rather than science experiment gone wrong) it is plausible that the Tunguska event caused the mutation as high concentrations of various elements were deposited and it isn't related to the beast.
  5. Who is Sabina? (and yes I think she has the gun)

    • In the first episode she beat the fastest men and was able to reach the settlement before the others.  To me this implies that she is familiar with the terrain and likely has a different motive than the others for being in Siberia.
    • If she has more knowledge of their habitat then my supposition would be that she was able to make it to the gun before the others.
    • Daniel found her in a hidden cave, in which she warned him not to enter claiming there is a drop-off and it is dangerous.  Again with her knowledge of the area this is likely her home base where she is plotting her course of action.  If she did steal the gun and bullets, this is probably where she has hidden them.
    • Finally since Siberia was where Jewish prisoners were sent in the 1900's and she is an Israeli soldier, I believe Sabina could be Mossad, the CIA of Israel, who sends its members on various missions.  With her familiarity of the terrain and obvious secrecy, I think her goal is related to the beast; whether it is to track and contain it or possibly destroy the being altogether.
  6. What is the importance of Victoria's vision and the mushrooms?

    • You had to pay close attention in the first episode to grab the line Sam read from the Revealer's paper concerning the mushrooms.  It said that they were used for rituals by the original settlers, for this reason I think they hold important value.  Depending on what happened to the settlers they may still be important to them or to the beast.
    • I assume if you're reading this you know what happened with Esther, Victoria and mushrooms, if you need a recap check out Siberia Goes Deeper into the Woods.  Anyhow, Victoria ate the uncooked fungi and had a "trip" of epic proportions.  While she was obviously agitated and delirious she mentioned butterflies, the sky being green and on fire, and "you're all dead".  It became clear when Victoria chose to leave that she believed the mushrooms have the ability to show the consumer the future and what will happen next to the contestants was too grim for her to stay.  Perhaps another member of the group will attempt to also eat the uncooked mushrooms and get a glimpse into their future in order to help save them all!
    • What was most interesting about her vision was the prophecy that they all would die.  If they don't travel into the "Valleymen's" territory they should be fine, right?  But perhaps something more sinister is about to happen (like in Alien vs. Predator the Predators came every so often to hunt the Alien and show their superiority) such as another event in which the wormhole reappears and the beasts hunt the human settlers and what happened in 1908 will repeat itself.  Who knows if the contestants are decedents, maybe there will be a House on Haunted Hill moment where only one contestant survives because they are adopted!  I am not sure about the butterflies and the only thing that strikes me is that the Tunguska Event crater was described as butterfly-like in shape.    
  7. How many of the eerie events are the producers, and how many are something else entirely?

    •  The appearance and disappearance of the tiger as well as the spear labeled "get out" in Russian, I believe to be warnings from the beast in the woods.  However we have to scrutinize the clues and guess whether the noises, movement and people seen in the wilderness are props executed by production to scare the contestants or from the unknown presence that haunts the Tunguska area.

     ✓ What is Carolina hiding?

    • She is the only cast member who doesn't use her real name.
    • Daniel mentioned in the first episode that she was familiar.
    • This one stumps me.  However while she may be lying about who she is, I don't think that it has any relevance to the big mysteries that surround the show.
    • Conclusion: Carolina is an actress, put in the show by the producers to stir up trouble amongst the group. (Revealed in "Fire in the Sky"; see Siberia Gets a Little Stranger)

     ✓ What is the significance of the symbol that appears in credits?

    • First off, for it to be in the credits of every episode must mean it has important significance.  To me it looks like a compass rose and at first glance I thought the arrows pointed outward like a signal to guide safe passage.  However, the triangles are actually inverted so I think it could be a way of marking the beast's territory.  It probably wasn't a good idea for whomever carved it as it could mean this way is safe, or this way marks death.  I personally prefer the latter as an arrow was a fairly primitive drawing and they must have inverted it for a reason.  We will just have to wait and see if it's marking dangerous areas, a safe passageway or something else entirely!
    • Conclusion: In the episode "Fire in the Sky", Miljan finds the symbol, which did turn out to be a compass, that leads him to more on nearby trees.  At the end of the road he discovers a hidden journal that appears to have been written by one of the 1908 settlers in Russian.  I suppose the carvings were a map to help them remember where the journal was hidden.  But it raises a new question: What secrets are contained in these writings that needed to be stashed away for safe keeping?  As well as, are there more of these symbols and do they lead the way to safe passage or mark the areas of danger?  


So what do I ultimately think about the mysteries of Siberia?

  • The event is the effects of a wormhole opening into the Siberian wilderness. 
  • The aliens come through this wormhole, but why they wormhole keeps appearing and how many beings stay is still unclear.
  • The beast is not normally predatory unless it feels threatened or someone wanders into its territory.
  • The ancient humans as well as the settlers tried to attack the beast and lost OR they were mutated and still stalk the Siberian wilderness.  Now with humans being seen stalking the woods, my hunch about the settlers still somehow living in the wooded area along with the beast is gaining more traction. 
  • I believe the 1908 settlers may have some relation to the contestants there now.
  • Sabina is a Mossad solider with ulterior motives.
  • The mutated frog is an effect from the change in normal elemental levels in its habitat caused by the 1908 event.
  • Since I don't recall ever seeing the mysterious symbol in the show, other than in the credits, it could be the contestants, I pick Carolina, who carves it marking the areas in which the beast has been seen. Miljan found the strange carving in the episode "Fire in the Sky" due to its age and the old journal found at the end of the path, the symbols were likely carved by an original settler as a path to their hidden writings.  However, I believe this just affirms that it is a sort of map it can still be used in other places to mark out a safe, or dangerous passageway. 
  • The mushrooms give the consumer the power to see the future, but what every time-traveling show has taught me, these visions can be changed.  I think it would be a good idea for someone else to try them out and rather than bail, like Victoria, use their vision to help them survive.

I originally intended to post this after the fourth episode because we see in the preview that Victoria's vision begins to unfold.  I rushed it and posted it early to hopefully get people talking before we find out how true the vision was.   I hope it was easy to read as conspiracy theories twist in and out everywhere and without the full story this is all just observations, research and hypothesizes.  I would love to hear your thoughts and comments so please share!  Stay tuned to Siberia Mondays on NBC, and check back here for full recaps, reviews, predictions and updates to my theories!

Siberia Gets Into the Thick of It

Siberia is an all new concept of television from NBC: a hybrid between a reality competition and a supernatural mystery action flick that keeps us guessing!  While I am no fan of reality competitions, Siberia has managed to pull me in and get me addicted to what it's selling.  For a full review of the premiere and second episode visit Siberia Finds a Common Bond: Reality Competition & Action/Mystery Flick and Siberia Goes Deeper into the Woods, but let's take a look at the important events from the newest episode, "Lyin' and Tiger and Bare", that really stepped it up a notch as we learned more about the characters and their eerie surroundings. 

  • The group starts to become more comfortable with their habitat and each other with an impromptu swimming trip.  While it began with just Carolina and Johnny appearing to form a bond, the others quickly joined in. Although Esther chose to show the group all she has by skinny dipping (let's be real, she walked around naked most of the time before even getting into the water) and Miljan showed off his flamboyant briefs, others were more modest as Daniel and Irene decided to stay fully clothed, watching from the sidelines, as their own budding romance begun.  Sabina also chose to not participate and found more interest in a large paw print, different from the earlier encountered beast.
  • Their food shack was set on fire.  Whilst watching their entire food supply burn to the ground Miljan pointed the finger at Johnny, questioning him as he was the first one at the fire.  After the flames had diminished, Daniel brought up the fact that there was not enough glass to account for the jars they had counted and rationed.  However, the rest of the group seemed to put the idea that the fire was set intentionally out of their minds and focused their anger on attacking Neeko.  He had suggested that the food be portioned out and kept safely in the shed.  With hunger pains causing agitation amongst the group, tensions ran high.
  • Thankfully the Revealer blasted it's fog horn sounds just in time, giving the group a much needed bow and arrow.  While both Johnny and Sam give the weapon a try, it was Irene, who until now hadn't shown any skills helpful to the group, who was the only one able to wield the weapon with accuracy.  She teamed up with Johnny in an attempt to utilize his tracking and hunting skills with her arrow accuracy.  However, while Irene had taken archery classes, she'd never killed anything before and contained no desire to do so.  She came to Neeko with this concern and his pep talk wasn't particularly compassionate, instead it went more like: we need food, you're the only one who can shoot, and it needs to be done.  Nevertheless, Irene decided to take on the mission for the group and together her and Johnny are able to track down a family of deer and Irene hit her target dead on.  Irene's squirmishness got worse after she successfully killed a young doe and Johnny proceeded to cut off it's head and drain the animal's blood.  Johnny posed the idea that because they did all the work, and as such, they should keep their prize and not share with the others.  Irene was totally against this and insists on sharing their catch with the entire group, I fear her optimism concerning her opponents will hurt her in the long run. 
  • Sam had the idea to use Irene's pantyhose as a rudimentary net in an attempt to catch fish.  He was unsuccessful and his feelings, compounded by hunger, reached a breaking point when Natalie made it her mission to chastise him any chance she got.  During his expedition, he saw a portion of the brush move like a large animal was in the nearby woods, it appeared to be the same area where Sabina had previously found the paw print.  He also discovered a bracelet in the shallow waters that was a love token marked for Anne in 1908, likely belonging to one of the disappeared settlers, he keeps it with the hope it will bring him luck.  I don't know how good an idea this is, as it clearly didn't grace its previous owner with good fortune.  
  • Suddenly Natalie and Annie came running back to the settlement instructing everyone to get inside that they had seen a tiger.  While some members doubted their claim and suspected the girls of attempting to scare them, it also occurred to the group that the producers could have intentionally had the beast on a chain to rattle their nerves.  However the girls remained adamant that what they saw was real and no hoax.  Neeko informed them that earlier, when gathering firewood, he had come across a speaker posted high in the tree, that it was all part of the scare tactics and it also explained the strange noises they had herd their first night in the camp.  He insisted it was a controlled environment and they wouldn't put them in real danger.  However, everyone seems to have forgotten about Tommy and if these are just tricks set up and they really are safe then how did one of the contestants die?  Daniel wasn't interested in any of this as he was blinded with concern for Irene, who was out in the woods with a huge target on her back, the bloodied dear.  With the wild animal loose, attracted to the smell of blood he ventured out alone to inform Jonny and Irene of the impending threat.  This might have won Irene over as she saw his actions as brave and it was clear he cared for her.  Upon their return, the group feasted on the deer and all emotions diminished with their hunger but this didn't last for long.
  • The following day, Carolina took Neeko aside and informed him that she had seen Johnny hiding in the bushes and they proceeded to investigate.  We also saw Johnny doing this earlier in the episode and he claimed he was gathering flowers in an attempt to woo Carolina.  They returned to the campsite with their findings: the missing jars from the shed wrapped in Johnny's shirt.  Everyone became infuriated with the realization that Johnny had stole the food and set flame to the structure.  However reveled only to the viewers, we see video footage from inside the food shed, learning that Carolina was the real culprit thus setting Johnny up.  But why?  At first the burning of the shed made everyone turn on Neeko, but then she chose Neeko to help her "uncover" the food making him the hero and Johnny the bad guy.  I suppose she just wanted to try to raise the tension in the camp in order to win the competition.  So much for her looking down on Esther and her ruthless way of playing the game.  Perhaps it's like Carolina said in the first episode, the universe rewards you for your actions and hopefully we will see it punish Carolina for hers as well.
  • In the shocking conclusion Neeko finds Sabina alone in the woods, when he confronts her as to what she's doing she shows him a mauled tiger, leaving no doubts that it was real, but she poses the question, "What could do that to a tiger?".  This has everyone wondering, what should they really fear in the woods?   
Once again on Siberia we have learned that all is not what it seems.  We saw different sides of Natalie, Daniel, Irene, Johnny and Carolina in this episode and I am sure more surprises are just ahead involving not only the characters' secrets but the mysterious past of their settlement in Siberia that is ever so slightly creeping into their present stay.  Tune in Monday's on NBC and check back here for weekly recaps, reviews and predictions, enjoy!

Siberia Goes Deeper into the Woods

Wow, this episode really surprised me!  When I thought Siberia would be a horror flick after chaos ensued and a contestant died in the premiere, (see: Siberia Finds a Common Bond: Reality Competition & Action/Mystery Flick) I was completely wrong.  It is still formatted in a reality completion setting with only bread crumbs of strange occurrences left for viewers in each episode. Apparently the show must go on.  While I am pretty sure at this point discovering the details of what's really going on in Siberia is going to be like pulling teeth from a kid that won't open his mouth, I'm going to finish what I started and continue watching.  Mostly because now I need to know, but I have to say that Siberia really has found that perfect bond between reality competition and supernatural drama; my only problem is that I'm really not into reality competitions.  For those of you who can't bear it out I will keep updating regarding the pertinent details of the episodes so check back!  Here's a look at this week's Siberia, "A Question of Reality".

  • George leaves.  He decides to take the $5000 and keep his life (and yes we actually see the red button work and take him away via helicopter).
  • Esther is a horrible person.  Knowing full and well that the mushrooms were dangerous when not cooked, she lied to Victoria claiming they were ready to eat and that she would have some too but she already had so much thus poisoning Victoria. 
  • The Revealer opened twice. 
    • The first time it contained bullets and a map to an alleged gun.  By the end of the episode both the items were missing and we don't know who has them. 
    • The second time there was a snake and a key.  As I predicted Miljan acted like the knight in shining armor leading everyone to the shed he and Irene found in the premiere.  The shed contained various foods and seasonings and after a battle, Neeko and Sam convinced the group to ration the food.  Just like in Lost the big guy, Sam (who has already made comments about how mean he gets when he is hungry), is instilled with the key and the job of proportioning out the food for the group.
  • Daniel decides to investigate Tommy's death further and finds that he did not die from a fall, like they were told, but rather was attacked by the mysterious presence in the wilderness.  He also finds a large two-pronged track the monster left.  While trying to find his way back he stumbles upon Sabina in a hidden cave.  She immediately directs him away from it warning him not to enter (she likely has the gun and bullets among other things hidden inside).  As they made their way back to the camp Daniel also discovers primitive artwork depicting natives hunting a Anubis-like creature, with two legs and feet matching the tracks he found as well as two arms and a hooded cobra head.  My thoughts go straight to Alien v. Predator as the monster looks a lot like the Predator.  Possibly some kind of mutated human from science experiments when it was a prison camp? 
  • Victoria gets horribly ill from the mushrooms and to make matters worse Esther sits around lying the whole time.  She seems to be hallucinating and mentions green fire in the sky and you're all dead during her trip.  While everyone but Johnny and Miljan want to get her help, no one will cross over the forfeit line to press the button.  When she awakens in the morning she abruptly decides to leave telling only Daniel that she remembers what she saw on her mushroom trip and they will all die out there.  Like I mentioned in my post about the premiere, the mushrooms were used for rituals by the natives and likely have some kind of power of foresight.
Basically the show is Lost meets Survivor.  If you are interested in action, there is little to be found here.  If you like competition shows this is right up your alley as it is basically that with a pinch of supernatural weirdness.  While I like the characters and it is a unique new show, I doubt that it will be renewed as it goes up against the other huge supernatural summer thriller, Under the Dome (see: Keeping an Eye on CBS), that has a lot more action and information is more like an open faucet compared to Siberia's dripping tap.  I'll stay tuned and keep you updated on what discoveries are made so check back weekly.  Enjoy!

I have to add this after watching the next few episodes: This show is good. While at first the strange events came slowly we have now been thrown into a crazy adventure possibly involving wormholes, time-loops, alien beasts, past lives and overall strangeness. I'm so glad that I didn't give up after a slow episode and I hope you didn't either! If you missed a few, check out my recaps and my two theories posts that document the real 1908 event and other facts that are spread throughout the show. While at first we were on that part of the roller-coaster that slowly creaks upward towards the sky, we are now going full speed ahead plunging and twisting around! Stay tuned to Siberia Monday's on NBC and check back here for all the facts, theories, recaps and more that I can put out as we're on a runaway train and I'm just trying to hold on!

Siberia Finds a Common Bond: Reality Competition & Action/Mystery Flick

NBC has done something really interesting with its new show Siberia.  The first few previews I just fast forwarded through because it looked like just another Survivor type show and I wasn't interested.  Then as the images flickered by, I realized something else was going on.  Intrigued, I added it to my list of premieres to check out and I have to say I was quite impressed!  I thought it would be a little like Harper's Island or I Know What You Did Last Summer, where everything is normal until strange events begin and cast members are plucked off.  However the first episode had a lot of the normal reality components and it wasn't until the last minutes that we see any crazy horror action!  It wasn't so much that the reality competition was the premise and then everything goes haywire.  There was more of a balance between the two genres than I had expected.  That being said, now that the action has begun, it does seem like we will get more of the horror, mystery, drama in the coming weeks.  It was an awesome premiere and did a lot of things right, we got great introductions to the cast and their personalities, but waiting for those final seconds when everything falls apart might have turned some of you away who tuned in for the non-reality part.  Don't lose hope!  There is a lot Siberia has to offer!  So let's dive in to the characters and events of the show!  If you missed the premiere this will catch you up and even if you did tune in, this will help you to recap the 16 characters in preparation for next week's episode!  Enjoy!

The show begins as any reality show, the contestants are taken to a remote location, read the rules and given their first challenge.  In this game there are no rules. They are only to survive the winter.  They can form a government if they choose, to help divvy up each person's responsibilities i.e. food, water, fire, or they can each play for themselves.  They are to live as the people did 100 years ago, off the land with no modern conveniences and whoever survives a prize of $500,000 will be split among them.  An old trading post has been recreated as it was a century ago when the 14 residents mysteriously vanished, similar to Roanoke Island, so it is revealed that they do have some supplies and rudimentary shelter.  The first twist and challenge is given which is they are not allowed their luggage, only the clothes on their backs and the 16 contestants must race following the path of the original trading post marked by red flags to the settlement where the last two to reach it will be eliminated.  The whistle is blown and they are off!
  • Johnny, a bull rider from South Carolina immediately takes the lead.  While he is obviously athletic, it is one of his only skills in the group.  He claims that he grew up on a farm and an advantage he has over the others is that while they are city folk, he finds their surroundings to be comfortable and right up his alley.  He is first to make it to the trading post and while the rest of the group looks for food and water he chooses not to participate claiming he can take care of himself and sunbathes on the roof instead.  While he watches the other members attempt to start a fire, it is revealed that along with the clothes on his back he has smuggled in a lighter.  He mentions that it wasn't like they strip-searched you like they do when you get in the back of a police car as if he has had some experience with this.  As far as personality, he is smug and arrogant thus makes enemies quickly, as Carolina, Sam, Miljan, and Neeko have already voiced disapproval, and the likelihood of someone helping him out when he comes across trouble is rare.  When the group starts to bond over the campfire he approaches them and offers up some berries he picked.  I am not sure if this was a tactic, or he was feeling lonely and left out and it was a genuine gesture to make good with the group.
  • Neeko also has athleticism on his side but unlike Johnny also has a diplomatic nature.  After keeping a close second and arriving right after Johnny, he went to the other cabin surprised to find Sabina already there.  He view the no rules clause of the game as a challenge as it means you have to keep an eye on everyone else and you are the only one in charge of your survival.  This being said he realizes that arguments will be tough to settle and some sort of authority is needed, so he took the lead after the others joined them and divided the contestants into groups to accomplish the different jobs needed.  There was no battle for authority and everyone seemed to take Neeko's step up positively.  He comes off as a likable guy, level-headed and a good candidate to help the group survive the unknown challenges that lay ahead.
  • Sam is a mechanic from Brooklyn and possesses the stereotypical attitude from that area.  While not the fittest of the group he does have other strengths, or so he says, as he leads the fire attempting efforts like a boy scout.  He admits in his personal interview that he exaggerates or maybe even flat out lies about his skills, and is not able to make a flame or even a spark after directing the team in an elaborate fire pit setup.  However he doesn't hesitate to put Johnny in his place for his lack of participation and claims that the no rules policy is the producers, but there is a law of the land that states everyone needs to help.  He also barks at the group whose chore was to find mushrooms and they bring back water instead.  This act didn't make him any friends as Esther voices her discontent and Johnny just finds it amusing.  Sam is a conflict starter and it is not yet clear whether he will panic or step-up after terror strikes the participants.
  • Esther, a model from Australia, is devious and manipulative.  During the race to the trading post, she removes one of the red flags marking their way in an attempt to throw off the other contestants.  When Daniel is injured Esther makes no attempt to aide him, instead she asks him if he did it on purpose because now he can play the sympathy card and what a great idea that would be.  I know it starts out as a game, but really?  Making enemies quickly isn't a good idea as any Survivor watcher knows, they can always come back to vote you off, while that won't be a problem on this show I have to question her personality; is she really a bitch or is it just a front for the game?  When everyone arrives and comes to the realization that there are less beds than people, Esther makes a scene and attacks Irene's logical argument, she even goes as far as to threaten Irene not to push her too far.  Esther then goes to the boy's cabin and using her feminine charms, gets Miljan to agree to share a bunk with her.  Like Johnny's actions, when the game changes and becomes a real fight for survival without a medical crew and helicopter to rescue them, I'm sure few people will jump to help her out. 
  • Miljan is a DJ from Montenegro and I am not too sure where his place will fall in the group.  He seems like a nice guy, but a bit clueless as he falls for Esther's charms when all she cares about it getting what she wants.  He says he's flattered she chose him and it's a game tactic to make all the other men jealous and emotional so they are at a disadvantage.  While others were impressed with Tommy's good Samaritanism, Miljan thought giving a helping hand was a poor choice, I wonder how he'll feel when the stakes change and a good Samaritan is just what he needs!  He helps out the entire group by looking for mushrooms and instead gathering water, but still wants to play his cards close to the vest when he and Irene find a locked shed he advises they keep the info to themselves.  Who knows, that shed will likely contain crucial clues or help for their survival and when the shit hits the fan, Miljan will be their savior in a time of need.
  • Daniel is the geek of the bunch, a computer guy from Minnesota, who is probably used to being behind a desk rather than in the wild.  Right off the bat, in the rat race to the settlement he trips and injures himself putting him out of the game.  Luckily the kind-hearted actions of Tommy saved him, as he practically carried Daniel to the finish line.  Later on Daniel was able to prove himself useful by utilizing the magnification from his glasses to start the fire.  He makes a strange comment regarding how Carolina seems very familiar to him, I think this will likely play into the strange events to come.  After Sam's misleading actions got them nowhere, Daniel was able to swoop in and save the day!  He earned Neeko's respect with his wits and has proven to be helpful to the group with his survival know-how also recognizing the need to boil their water to avoid disease.  He also is able to catch a mutated frog and while Johnny sees it as more food, Daniel's wits kick in and he is weary not only about eating it but also about what in their surroundings caused this anomaly.  He is a nice guy, but has already proved himself to be a bit of a klutz and probably won't do well in the stressful situations that lie ahead.  Hopefully his smarts will come in handy or else he will just be extra baggage in everyone's fight for survival.
  • Carolina possesses beauty on the inside and out.  She is a bartender from Colombia which doesn't give us much clue as to her personality or how well she will do in the survival scenario.  However, she does recognize how the absence of rules will cause problems. (While I realize everyone's feelings on the rules won't matter when it is no longer a game, I do think it gives us insight into the characters and how they will conduct themselves when the game stops.) She also shows a good moral fiber when she discourages Esther's "cheating" and describes her beliefs as "you have to play fair to win and life rewards you back".  Similarly, when she sees Johnny choosing not to participate in the quest for food, fire and water she's irked and tries to persuade him to help out, without being condescending.  Overall she is a good natured girl who I think will act as the heart of the group.
  • Irene, a fashion designer from Milan, is a soft-spoken, kind-hearted person which, while admirable, doesn't make her stick out and plays for a easy character to kill off.  After her confrontation with Esther she is brought to tears, not wanting to offend anyone or make enemies.  She found Tommy's help with Daniel admirable and when she finds the shed with Miljan wants to be open and up front about it with the group.  While her personality isn't the best for a cut-throat game of survival, we will see if it aides her when the game becomes reality. 
  • Natalie (Veterinary Assistant, California), Victoria (Sales Clerk, Canada), Annie (Graphic Artist, Louisiana), and George (Accountant, Kentucky) didn't leave much of an impression in this first episode.  We learned Natalie is comfortable with her Siberian surroundings which will come in handy as well as her knowledge of animals.  However the strange growling that the group witnessed their first night was unlike anything she had heard before, put that together with the mutated frog the wildlife in the area will likely be nothing like they've ever witnessed.  She also apparently doesn't know that a mushroom isn't a vegetable.  She also had sympathy for Irene after Esther's verbal attack.  Victoria is shy and not very social so she has trouble making alliances and all we really learned about Annie is that she also smuggled some items in and that she doesn't trust Miljan. George says he won't steal or attack anyone but we will see if that changes as their circumstances do.
  • Sabina is a soldier from Israel and I suspect she is really with Mossad.  She was a recluse for the entire episode and how she made it to the camp first remains a mystery.  I think that she has ulterior motives and isn't there for any reality competition.  We did see her however inspect the cabin before the other women arrived and find a switch blade that she kept for herself.  She is definitely not interested in working as a group and it seemed like when they learned about the mushrooms in the area she was uninterested or perhaps already knew.  She is probably the character I am most interested in seeing develop and her whole persona reminds me of Ethan from Lost who was really just a plant by the unknown local inhabitants of the island.
  • Berglind was the journalist from Iceland who saw a fork in the road and chose the wrong path.  Esther's sabotage further delayed her progress and Harpreet, a Graduate Student from DC, was mesmerized by Berglind's speed and "Viking warrior" look and chose to follow her.  Being the last two to arrive at the settlement they were both eliminated, however we didn't see them leave.  With no idea what or who else is with them in the wilderness, you never know, we might see these two again in the coming weeks.
  • Tommy is a philanthropist from Massachusetts who is a genuine good guy.  He says if he wins the money he would use it for charity.  When Daniel falls and sprains his ankle everyone leaves him behind for dead, but not Tommy.  He practically carries Daniel to the camp to find out they both are safe!  Later, Tommy leads the expedition to find mushrooms but comes across a remote stream instead.  Understanding the need for water above food, he brings the group their water.  The following day he continues the search for mushrooms, wanders too far from the settlement and he and his cameraman are attacked by an unknown being.  Tommy is declared dead with little to no explanation from the crew or producers, to the other contestants dismay, and the real plot behind Siberia begins!
By reading the above character profiles, you get the bits and pieces of the remainder of the episode.  By I'll do a quick recap to sum it up:
After they arrive at the settlement, Berglind and Harpreet are eliminated and host Jonathon explains the rest of the need-to-know information.  He introduced a huge ironclad box named "The Revealer", it is an impenetrable box that contains an item that will help them  in their survival.  How they use the item and who possess it is up to them.  I personally believe that the box is rigged and will keep opening at random times even without the producers and with the chaos that will ensue not everyone will be at the settlement when it opens so some characters will have the advantage of taking the item for themselves, other times their will likely be arguments as to who will keep the item.  In this episode the item was a simple piece of paper describing a mushroom that was grows naturally in their habitat that is also edible.  What I found particularly interesting was the clause that stated the mushrooms were used by the ex-natives for rituals.  It was also strange that the attack on the cameraman and Tommy happened right after Annie and Natalie found and removed the mushrooms.  Maybe these fungi have special meaning to whatever or whoever attacked.  Jonathon also introduced the big red button; if they want to leave or need help they are to push it and a helicopter will come and take them away thus forfeiting the game.  The next peculiarity was a strange growling heard their first night in the camp, which caused them all to flee to the cabins.  Finally we have the tumultuous ending that begins the horror show we signed up for.  The group, beginning to prepare the mushrooms, hears a loud noise which is followed by a cameraman running back to the settlement shouting in Russian with a large head wound.  The group is curious and terrified but the crew refuses to tell them what happened.  Sam however understood the man's cries, interpreting them as "I saw them, I saw them".  This obviously implies that whatever attacked them was something the crew was aware of.  While it's probably something like an old-folk tale and the reason why the people in the region refer to the site as cursed, not the viewer nor the cast was given any explanation as to what the "them" he referred to was.  Again it has tones of Lost, where the "them" were the Others or the native inhabitants of the island.  I thought before even watching the show that they would be in a Lost, type situation where there are ex-prisoners who still live out there or some kind of spiritual force like the ghost of the disappearing settlers.  However, when the footage of Tommy's attack played out, it was clear that whatever ambushed them appeared threatening because as soon as he saw it he took off running clearly knowing it was dangerous.  Put that together with the growling and it might be the Chupacabra of the area, a violent group of before thought mythical animals.  I am not yet sure what the danger they face will be and in the panic if they will band together or fight each man/woman for themselves.  Jonathon explains that it is their choice whether or not to stay after the life affirming events and that they will each be given $5000 if they choose to leave, but after the preview of this week's episode, I have a feeling leaving is no longer an option.   

The premiere of Siberia was a little slow for me as I am not into reality competitions in the wild, however I would say that the producers did a good job giving it the authentic feel of a reality series and I see the cast as contestants rather than characters.  Not till the end did we get into the fun supernatural aspect I am viewing for and it left me wanting more!   I would recommend you tune in, especially if you liked other series like Lost, or supernatural shows in general.  My premiere blog is always more detailed then the rest as I believe that getting to know the characters, particularly in a cast this big, is important to understanding the show and I also need a recap just to remember them all.  I keep thinking what it would have been like had I reviewed the Lost with it's humongous cast!  Anyhow I will keep posting weekly updates 2-3 day after Siberia airs, so check back after you watch the all new episode when things really start to get interesting!

Crossing Lines: The Terminator Update & Review

This week's Crossing Lines episode, The Terminator, was about a group of high stakes art thieves whose strategy was luring men sexually to gain access to their apartments and then poisoning them with Polonium, a radioactive element.  While Crossing Lines is a great new show with a gritty, real feeling and I highly recommend it (see original post for full review and synopsis: Crossing Lines: NBC's New Crime Drama); I will not be reviewing every episode weekly as it is just a different killer-different day.  I will however keep bringing updates on the two long running storylines involving the man who killed Major Daniel's son and the person responsible for shooting off Carl's hand as well as updates regarding the relationships of the team as they evolve.
We see the aftermath of Sienna's death as the group attends the funeral and Daniel has flashbacks to his own son's burial.  While her death originally brings hesitation by the group to continue, they all agree to keep going in honor of her.  They face a team of art thieves which is headed by Dimitrov, a Russian gangster whose brutality and callousness strikes fear even into his own crew.  It is revealed that he is using the Polonium to kill the art owners just to see if it works, this type of atrocity is unnecessary for the task.  The cold hearted boss is also who is believed to be responsible for Daniel's son's death as well, so he takes a special interest in the case and attempts to find out as much information as he can about this sadistic, evil man.  Although he previously passed up his chance for revenge and agreed to let Dorn and the ICC take over the case, I suspect as he learns more from the sidelines he might end up going after the Russian himself or with the team.

In the premiere episode, Anne Marie was injured in her kidnapping and in an attempt to prove herself she discharges herself from the hospital against medical advice and ends up collapsing from a rib piercing her lung and causing bleeding.  She hasn't done much for the team in these first two episodes but I look forward to seeing her work as she impressed me with her eidetic memory and scene analysis in the premiere.  She also obtained information about the man Carl believes is responsible for the loss of function of his hand in an attempt to help him.  I am interested in watching Carl and Anne Marie's relationship grow in the coming weeks. 

While Tommy originally showed the anger I predicted after the death of Sienna, he agreed to keep working with the team.  I was surprised by how quickly Eva took Sienna's place as Tommy got close to her just as he did Sienna only days after her death.  I suppose the relationship that was set up between Sienna and Tommy will shift to Eva in the coming weeks as they partner up and likely develop feelings for each other.

Crossing Lines is an action/crime drama that is entertaining to watch and I look forward to seeing the relationships of the team unfold as well as their individual hunts for revenge.  Writing about each weekly case seems to me like a simple synopsis for every Law & Order episode, just a new bad guy who gets caught.  I think this show will appeal to the casual watcher as you can miss an episode and still be entertained without confusion, I am more interested in the long term storylines as a dedicated viewer.  I will also be updating weekly about NBC's other new drama, Siberia, which has more diversity and mysteries unlocked in every new episode.  Check back for updates on this as well as reviews of killer episodes that stand out from the pack!
