Group of participants of reality show of 16 people deliver by the helicopter to the taiga district remote from big cities. Conditions of game are standard for a format: participants should as it is possible to hold on more long unaided from the outside, living in several izbas in the middle of the Siberian woods. Everything begins as usual, heroes divide lodging for the night places, study world around, get acquainted with simple rules, however suddenly reality show turns into severe test.

Who only did not try to occupy a niche of the mystical series riveting general attention, after withdrawal from air to "Survive". "Siberia" – purposeful blow in that audience, which traces on sand, a mysterious smoke, notches on trees and night uninvited guests as a balm for the soul. Considering that on this field there is not a lot of competitors, the leader in the nomination «"Lost" of year» to become not so difficult. Whether it turned out at "Siberia"? It is rather not.

"Siberia" has a fine concept. Seriously, to whom did not come to mind thought on taking and "burning" "House 2", for example. Or participants of reality show about a survival really to deprive of external support. After all as though to us tried to show moral and physical sufferings of participants, somewhere deeply the thought inside sits: «Here now they ate worms, rolled about among snakes, dived behind keys, and then will go to camp there are stakes and to sleep in comfortable trailers. Because the idea of reality show in which «something went not so», seems very interesting. As also authors create the show atmosphere authentic – at some forums after an exit of a pilot episode there was a serious dispute, whether show by game series or the documentary chronicle is.

Looking at the first episodes, it is really difficult to get off thought that you look competitions on a survival, instead of cinema, let and television. The same meticulous operators climbing in each corner, the same individual confessions in secluded corners where participants tell about the experiences, the same train of tasks and conditions for further stay in camp. All this is very healthy, but on it the series and break.

"Siberia" very long harnesses. To grasp the viewer, it was necessary to devote one episode to the acquaintance, the second – to the first troubles, the third – alarm, the fourth – a panic, and on the fifth already to go racing, pushing any fantastic options of succession of events. Alas, "Siberia" slips, and almost to the season middle in it literally there is nothing. Heroes loaf, in group there are usual conflicts for similar pastime, there are any separate excesses, but no more. Many audience stopped to look series after the second or third episode, and rightly. The genre demands at least any action. However such impression is made that founders of show were not ready to something bigger, than the pilot. And if first their meticulous reproduction of a life of reality show is at high level, from the beginning of troubles for participants "reality" of the events on the screen starts to go to pieces.

Perhaps, the conclusion for a shot of operators became the main mistake. Any viewer understands that someone removes reality show, someone constantly is near heroes even in the most difficult situation. From here minutes of a panic and horror when show already got out of hand, the operator should have the same feelings, as heroes. But is not present – shootings proceed indifferently. Heroes do multikilometer transition through the wood without food and water in pity rags and prepare for death every minute, and the cool operator writes down it and will not tremble a uniform muscle. It is more than that, a favorite method – heroes ascend on a hill and from its top are surprised to an opening look. Think, the operator follows them and looks vicinities? No, it runs forward and removes not a surprising landscape, and participants leaving on a hill and pretending that the operator ahead does not exist. Unfortunately, these annoying misses do not allow to call such reality show by reality, let’s believe in authenticity of events as it happens in films about allegedly found films. The series turn into an invention, but with an invention at authors everything is bad. Everything, on what they were honored, is the become empty camp of support of show, scientific center and the settlement. Poorly, by the way, similar to the Siberian small town the ideal lodges, small streets with carved lamps and small benches.
