Did You Know?

Goofs

Many of the "calamities" appeared staged. They couldn't just have enough cameras at the exact points when half the failures happen. It does seem like many of the issues are made to look more urgent or are actually emergency drills rather than real issues. See more »

Poorly scripted
9 October 2016 | by parkey-34047See all my reviews

The show has the potential to be very entertaining, but its just sickening to see how much the producers try manufacture drama. In almost every scene, there is some kind of falsified drama, and you can very easily tell that it is scripted, and very poorly at that. I would love to be able to watch the show without drama being shoved down my throat. Some drama throughout the show would be welcomed, but this much falsified drama coming from people who, for the record, cannot act at all, are trying to propose the idea of constant drama, of which doesn't exist,

If this is supposed to be a reality TV show, it should start being more real.
