I'm just watching this show out of habit. I didn't care for the documentary crew getting involved. Oh no, Pam is sad! Guys stop the camera! Give me a break. The gimmick doesn't make much sense at this point. They should avoid drawing attention to it.
That's about where I am with the show, too. If they want to commit to the documentary thing or completely ignore it, I'm fine either way. But the way they just acknowledge or ignore it as it suits them is a half-assed, gimmicky way to go.
The show started out as fairly believable and realistic, like the original, but got more and more outlandish and further from the concept. I wouldn't have missed it if it ended a couple of years ago, but, well, might as well see it to the end.
