Okay, sit back for a fun block of text.
It's Survivor meets Big Brother meets American Idol. It sounds strange, right?
There's a house with a glass wall down the middle. One half gets super-modern convenience. Tablets and a Smart House atmosphere that takes care of them. The other half gets to light fires with flint, sleep on fur on the floor, and work for every convenience they want. Both teams can watch each other all they want, and even talk somewhat.
Now, the challenges. The show airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10/9 central on SyFy
. Tuesdays are Worldly Challenges where the teams face off, and the winner chooses to swap worlds or stay where they are. After that, each team chooses one person to be immune from elimination. Then we, the viewers, get a day to go on Twitter and choose which of those Protected People gets to decide the two people who will face each other in the elimination round.
We also vote for most and least popular players. The most popular gets a reward, which we also vote on, and the least popular gets a punishment, which we also vote on.
It also looks like this coming week they're going to drop a couple new people into the game, from a pool of candidates which we vote from.
So it's basically a Survivor game where the viewers get involved in deciding certain things and the teams are kept close enough together that they can constantly see one another. I don't think there's any privacy at all, so Team Chronos, the future team, can see the seething jealousy of Team Epoch, and Team Epoch gets the feeling that they're a TV show for the Future team.
