    Intriguing but disturbing

    Intriguing idea: How far will society go in watching "reality" TV? The contestants were risking their lives--literally--for fame and fortune by participating in Russian roulette on live TV. Only one of the contestants was at all sympathetic; the rest were idiots. The bloodlust of the studio audience and the calculating indifference of the TV producers were disturbing. Someone was going to commit suicide, and not only did no one care, they actually welcomed it for the "thrill" and the ratings.

    The acting wasn't too bad, for the most part. Jeffrey Dean Morgan was wonderful, but if you're buying this just for him, be aware that he really only has one scene in which he speaks much--but it was a great scene, a very moving monologue. So buy it either as a sad commentary on society and the television industry, or because you love Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
