Utopia Review

by

What do you get when you mix a chef, a pastor and a doomsday prepper? That’s easy. You get one heck of a show! Fox’s Utopia gathers contestants from a wide variety of occupations who believe that their way of life is the way of life. They are separated from their family and friends, and brought to a remote location with complete strangers who range from convicts to contractors. The goal is to build the perfect society, or utopia, from scratch. “Will they choose democracy or dictatorship? Capitalism or socialism? Fidelity or free love? Which religion, if any, will prevail? Will they punish or forgive? Keep or share?” (UtopiaTV.com). These are just a handful of the difficult choices the Utopians are forced to decide on. Needless to say, there are plenty of friendships, rivalries, fights and hookups  that form along the way. What else can you expect when a group of strong-minded people with mixed backgrounds and upbringings get together?

While reality TV has become somewhat of a joke in recent years, this is unlike any show you’ve ever seen. The contestants are filmed 24 hours a day and 7 days a week (you can even watch a live feed between scheduled episodes). Utopians can be voted off and others voted in. Although it’s received mixed reviews, we here at Cliché think it has serious staying power. What’s not to love about outspoken individuals who want to restart the world with their own personal vision of a Utopia, especially when they don’t even have a formal bathroom?
