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

An amazing Web-Series, possibly the best.
13 July 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The Vault is a 'Reality Show' by a dying network trying to save themselves. They stick 150 college students in 'The Vault'. Each get their own room and have a number of specific objects inside. They have to 'solve' their room in a week. If they do, they win and get a hefty amount of money.

The first season is paced perfectly. The plot is intriguing and the characters all have depth. Each room is relevant and just when you think you have the answer, just when the whole things seems clear as day, a curve ball hits. What seem to be big questions often turn out to be minor.

At one point, you get scared that the show is about to get formulaic, the biggest twist of the season happens- Episode 12.

For any aspiring filmmaker or future web series creator, this is a show to reference and also enjoy. It is much more interesting than it's inspiration, LOST.
