UTOPIA: Live Feeds, Year-Long Reality Show
|I'm quickly becoming obsessed with UTOPIA!|
Have you heard of FOX's new reality show, UTOPIA? Well, if you're a Big Brother fan you might want to check it out, you may like it.

Like Big Brother, UTOPIA has live feeds. Four camera views are available, but only 2 are free. You can upgrade your account to premium for $4.99/month.
The free UTOPIA live feeds have annoying ads that pop in and out of your stream, interrupting your viewing. Of course it seems to always happen in the middle of a good conversation. The ads are pretty lame.
The premium UTOPIA live feeds are ad-free, you have voting rights, you can rotate the cameras, and you have more content on the UTOPIA website. I have not bought the premium live feeds, but I am considering it. Somehow you can get a coupon code for preview access, but I'm not quite sure how yet. However, $4.99 is about the price of a cup of coffee, so it's a pretty good deal. There are no season long passes, and no flashback feature yet.

UTOPIA is intriguing. It reminds me a lot of The Colony, a Discovery Channel based reality show. I really liked The Colony so UTOPIA immediately appealed to me.
UTOPIA is a group of people who create their own world for one year. They will build their world by creating their own society, government, rules and commerce. They have VERY limited resources and must work together to create a thriving community.
One Utopian is pregnant, another has alcohol issues, two Utopians have already had sexual relations and have since broken up - it's pretty wild.
Two new Utopians are introduced to the group occasionally and one is chosen to stay. That person then replaces another person in the group. There will always be a large group of people as cast members aren't "evicted" or "banished" as they are on other reality shows. (Oh yeah, and there is NO PRIZE MONEY, no winner, in Utopia.)
Check it out, you might like it. I'm obsessed.
