The new reality TV series on Fox, ′Utopia′, is still in its first week and already becoming a disaster. While the first of the 3-part premiere episodes did well on Sunday night, thanks to Fox′s football coverage, the Tuesday night episode stunk in the ratings game. The series, hosted by the creepy Dan Piraro of the Bizzaro comic strip, features a group of 14, soon to be 15, ordinary Americans trying to build a new society. The cross-section of participants includes a lawyer, a convict, a preacher, a construction contractor, a doctor/yoga instructor, a hillbilly redneck, a chef, a Libertarian, and my favorite, Bella, the blonde sweety who is a survivalist/prepper. For our amusement, we also have Hex, a ′huntress′ from Detroit, and Dedecker, a polyamorous model/artist who likes walking about naked. While the group attempts to form a democracy, tension has already created a splinter group with the convict and hillbilly forming their own alliance and rebelling against the tyranny of the majority.
