'Siberia' a creepy-fun horror drama; plus 'Ray Donovan,' 'Endeavor'
"Siberia" -- It may not have the built-in fan base of "Under the Dome," but NBC's "Siberia" could be just as much fun. Sixteen contestants are dropped in the middle of a Siberian forest with a camera crew and not much else. The goal: to survive long enough to claim the $500,000 prize. The pilot sets up a convincing, if a tad unregulated (there are no rules save do you what you must to survive), reality show, except that's not what's happening here. Created by newcomer Matthew Arnold, "Siberia" is a horror-drama, with creepy-woods top notes of "Blair Witch Project" and the production value of the short-lived monster mess, "The River."
