Storyline

The year is 2016. TV sucks. Ratings - at least at one major network - are at an all-time low. Desperate to save their jobs, the executives make an unprecedented decision: It's time to pull the plug. On everything. All programming must go. But what will replace it? Enter "The Vault," the greatest reality television competition in history... Or at least that's how they're selling it. A 24/7 game show that offers more questions than answers. The contestants, college students chosen from all over the country, will have 7 days to uncover its secrets and win a multi-million dollar prize. But once they're locked inside, they'll discover a game that's bigger and stranger than they could have ever imagined. Written by The Vault

A TV network decides to put all its money into a single reality show
13 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series. I liked all the "what's going on?" and "what does it mean?" stuff you'd get from Lost. I see the current review favorably compares this to Lost. I'm not an aspiring filmmaker and I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I think this series suffered the same drawbacks.

I was really intrigued by the different rooms and what they contained, but, It's basically meaningless once you learn it's about the people and not what the room contains. Just like Lost, I was hyped about the mystery, especially in episode 12, when you learn about the red team.

I knew there were only 16 episodes (not including the extra mini-episodes) and around episode 14 I knew what was happening. Just like Lost, they wrote themselves in a corner and I felt like it was a cop-out. So, the world, or at least their area, is destroyed from a nuke(?). No one was watching, the blue team's triumph and Henry's journey seems pointless. Nothing was really important about the planned show, other than a slightly edgier than normal reality show. Nothing sinister intended.

It tries to cover up the plot holes and rushed ending with metaphors and cliffhangers, but the last couple episodes left a bad taste in my mouth. I was intrigued, moderately entertained, wanted to learn more, really entertained, then disappointed. It's still the best web-series I've seen to date. Just like Lost (I know, I know), I won't throw the baby out with the bath water. Good job, creators.
