Kid Nation - starts today - Who is Going to Watch?

I'm really looking forward to it!

Starts Wednesday at 8 Eastern and Pacific
==============================

40 Kids for 40 days with no grown-ups. Can they do it?
40 Kids have 40 days to build a brave new world without adults to help or hinder their efforts. Can they do it? These Kids, ages 8-15, will turn a ghost town into their new home. They will cook their own meals, clean their own outhouses, haul their own water and even run their own businesses including the old town saloon (root beer only). Through it all, they'll cope with regular childhood emotions and situations: homesickness, peer pressure and the urge to break every rule they've ever known.
Will they stick it out? In the end, will these Kids prove to everyone, including their parents, they have the vision to build a better world than the pioneers who came before them? And just as importantly, will they come together as a cohesive unit, or will they abandon all responsibility and succumb to the childhood temptations that lead to round-the-clock chaos? Don't miss this intriguing series.

==============================

Re: Kid Nation - starts today - Who is Going to Watch?

It's ridiculous. I'm certainly not going to watch it. "Child abuse" might be too much of a word, but I do believe that getting on a reality show should be done for people who can actually give consent. One can only imagine the possible pressure that the parents might have put on them, and it's something that could taint them for years to follow. It will ofcourse depend a lot on how it is directed and what will they exactly show, but still.

I'll be watching. Hopefully it will turn into a Lord of the Flies type situation and make for interesting TV.

However, I have the feeling they're going to make it "inspirational" and it will turn out cheesy.

Re: Kid Nation - starts today - Who is Going to Watch?

i was pleasantly surprised. I don't think sofia should have gotten the prize though. All she did was complain when the young kids made a better meal than her.

Red are the "middle class". I think that is going to turn out to be a bad position. Better to be a worker.

She did a lot or else they wouldn't have picked her. They had to show some problems or else it would look too easy. I liked her........



The one kid that seems the greatest so far is Laurel (on town council),

Glad you like it too!

Would you watch the first episode or two before taking such a strong position? Please?

Re: Kid Nation - starts today - Who is Going to Watch?

I was hoping red would be upper class and blue would be the workers to set up more drama instead of red being upper and blue the class below

and they should have taken the TV just to entertain me more

I wont be watching it, thankfully TVNZ has decided not to air it on TV in New Zealand anyway

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.
