Just now showing up to this forum.
I enjoy the show and I take the cheesiness in a Jim Kirk over-the-top fun way. I really wish they'd decide on scripted or reality though. "I don't want to go in the pool-there was a dead body in there!" You KNOW he wasn't really dead. Yet if they were going full-scripted, people would be a lot more freaked out. That is my biggest gripe.
I am also confused as to the point of figuring out who the killer is, because I don't know how truthful the show is being with me. I haven't re-watched to see if I'm wrong but as I recall, the first murder happened when everyone was spread all over the house and grounds. The only two I remember as being outside are Adriana and Geno and the Killer was outside for the first murder. So I have been going with Geno as my suspect. However, the Killer in the videos looks like someone more slightly built. But are they ACTUALLY showing the Killer in a hoodie and sunglasses or just some recreation actor? That's the problem when you go too far with the scripted/reality. In addition, the focus seems to be on on solving the mechanics of the murder with nothing pointing to a person. I have a sinking feeling it'll come down to "hidden' clues like on The Mole ("There was an M on the wall during every interview...") instead of actual clues. And at least on The Mole that was sort of an extra bonus, not the whole solution. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised and the solution will be brilliant.
I have a half-suspicion that the Killer keeps calling the contestants "Mortals" and there's a contestant named Ulysses (though Ulysses/Odysseus was mortal, he deal with a lot of Gods) but I haven't got much more than that.
I keep waiting for people to discover that the puzzle-clue is a bonus for them and maybe they shouldn't shout it out in a crowd or bust open their videotapes, etc. where everyone can see.
I'm interested in how the finale will play out. We re-create a lot of shows like this at home and I like the structure (three separate clue locations, teamwork is necessary) but it's unclear as to how or why we are figuring out the murderer and not just the crimes.
