|The setting of the best TV show ever|
Everytime I walk through a Costco I have two thoughts. First, I think "I would love to have that big TV." Second, I think "I wonder how long I could live in this place, all by myself?" If I were locked inside a Costco, and could use and have everything in the store, how long would I last?
I've decided that I could live out the rest of my natural life. I might go crazy, and there's a chance I might die early and unhealthy due to a lack of vegetables, but I bet I could live about as long as I would if I weren't locked in a Costco.
So, if there is a zombie apolcalypse, the first place I am going is to Costco. I want to get in there, lock the doors and never open them. There'd be weapons to fight off the zombies and food to eat and zombie movies to watch and zombie-killing video games to play in my now-zombie-centric life. I recommend you do the same, but don't come to my Costco because I've gone off the edge and I will kill you. But that's not my TV show.
The show is called ... something. I haven't figured that out yet.
There are three competing groups of 15ish people. Each group has its own Costco. They walk in, the doors shut and lock behind them. There is no leaving. They can do whatever they want with whatever they can find within that Costco. That includes forklifts and cars and those fun suction tubes they used to use when I was young. Whichever group can stay safe and sane inside the Costco wins. Each member of the winning group gets a million dollars (second place gets a hundred thousand or something). They don't have phones or internet, or any means to contact the outside world. Each group will have at least two doctors, and something along the lines of a construction worker/architect/plumber/electrician/etc. The groups will have the personnel necessary to survive. Each group doesn't know if the other groups have quit yet, so they might be the winning group and not know it.
The group can remove someone from among them if they unanimously agree to get rid of that person. This can happen at any time. This can only happen twice. A person who is voted out gets no share of winnings.
Oooh, I just thought of this: Costcotopia.
So, if the group has already voted out two people and then a third person gets extremely sick, they have a choice to make. If there is a third person driving everyone crazy, do they quarantine him to a part of the Costco? Do they build a jail? Is there law? Can they get married? Can they grow their own food? I DON'T KNOW. I don't know and I want to know.
Wouldn't you watch this show?! Who knows what they would build, how they would structure their society, and what kind of crazy crap would go down? Costco would make a ton of money, every product in Costco would get advertising, and holy crap it's brilliant!
Does anyone know how I can get in touch with The Discovery Channel, or NBC?
