Tv Season Info
So far, Utopia has done a good job of catering to fans of reality-TV arguments, sex and blurred-out nudity.
Even as Utopia promises to never, ever live up to its name, its funhouse-mirror reflections of the fault lines-religion, class, politics-in our own larger, obviously imperfect society make for fascinating TV, if only occasionally.
Sensationalism overshadows reality show's thoughtful issues.
"Constructing a society" isn't the most obvious hook for a reality show, so Utopia struggles throughout its premiere to feel like it's heading anywhere.
Yet while raw and weird have certainly yielded dividends in the past, please let's not kid ourselves: If Utopia has any legs at all, it will as a cable-style freakshow, not some grand "experiment" in democracy.
