The Vault is a 'Reality Show' by a dying network trying to save themselves. They stick 150 college students in 'The Vault'. Each get their own room and have a number of specific objects inside. They have to 'solve' their room in a week. If they do, they win and get a hefty amount of money.
The first season is paced perfectly. The plot is intriguing and the characters all have depth. Each room is relevant and just when you think you have the answer, just when the whole things seems clear as day, a curve ball hits. What seem to be big questions often turn out to be minor.
At one point, you get scared that the show is about to get formulaic, the biggest twist of the season happens- Episode 12.
For any aspiring filmmaker or future web series creator, this is a show to reference and also enjoy. It is much more interesting than it's inspiration, LOST.
