I’ve changed my mind about Kid Nation. It’s just like some form of summer camp activity with cameras. CBS has noticed it as well, because the ratings aren’t great either. It’s still interesting to see the kids interact.
It’s the season finale of this show and the kids award the last gold star to someone. Later they discover that if they win the showdown, they will get to award three 50000$ gold stars. The council will be taking this decision. The kids freak out on their last day in Bonanza. Chaos and unlawfulness break out. There isn’t a lot the council can do. There is an emotional reunion towards the end. Most of the parents are very proud of their kids. The kids are sad to leave their friends.
I thought this show was interesting. Hopefully next season, if there is a new season of Kid Nation, the scriptwriters will find ways of making this show more interesting. If they stick to the same format, it’s just going to get boring fast.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
