These battles continue to blow me away. They are all so good that I'd rather have them just keep them around as duets. If you listen to the iTunes ...

Survivor: Worlds Apart – Ep 3 – Cannon Fodder Follies

So, we had a great first two episodes and I guess a step backwards isn’t that big of a deal. I think after most of us witnessed the events of the first two we all realized that some of the people on this season were really not long for the world of Survivor. Incompetence in challenges, inability to communicate at camp, and utter annoyance just means that some folks are either early cannon fodder, or just horrible enough for savvy players to keep around at [...]

Survivor: Worlds Apart – Eps 1 and 2 – So What? And The Assistant Coach Is A Poor Remake

On the day of Episode 3, I have finally caught up with this season of Survivor. This past month involved a whole lot of travel, the start of a new job, my engagement to my beautiful fiancé and the ongoing efforts to merge all of our stuff together in the house. It’s been a bit crazy. I still haven’t watched the end of Top Chef! And House of Cards is sitting there waiting for me to binge watch. But enough of that…we have Season 30 [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Finale – Twinnie Coronation

Season 29 ends and you can tell it is not the best one when my favorite parts of the finale were seeing Keith break the fourth wall and do multiple takes on a confessional, and seeing Slackjaw Alec show up a couple of more times. Good times. Anyway, it’s over. We move on to Season 30 after a rather subpar Season 29. But before we can move our attention to this new season, we need to wrap up Blood vs. Water 2. It was not [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 13 – The Red Wedding of Season 29

OK – Congrats to Blood vs. Water 2. You have now officially avoided the bottom of the barrel when it comes to seasons of Survivor. Between the idol madness that led to Fartman’s ouster and this episode – you now have a couple of big moments to cling to and it is actually possible that you may produce a worthy winner. I said last week that Natalie had won me over despite my poor memories of her Amazing Race days. Well, now I can add [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 11 & 12 – Two Pagongings For the Price Of One

Nice try, Survivor. First you give me the one and only great episode of San Juan Del Sur. Nice way to try and soften me up for being excited about back-to-back episodes of Survivor the next week. And putting two episodes on the same night? That may fool some fans. Not me. I know when you are trying to burn off a couple of obvious drama-free episodes. I’m on to your tricks. I am not going to give a two full column treatment to these [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 10 – Idols, Idols Everywhere

Finally, San Juan Del Sur has produced a top notch, borderline classic episode. And yet, it is the type of great episode that only this season can produce – where the victors following the madness get there by sheer luck and moronic game play. Meanwhile, one of the two people who actually showed good Survivor game skills got burned in the end. The Accidental Power Couple now has MORE power as a result of this madness, and they got it by, wait for it, ACCIDENT! [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 9 – Wait, Did I Miss Something?

Typical of Season 29 that the episode featuring the biggest power move of the season was as head scratching as ever. The Accidental Power Couple (APC) continued to make moves – this one a stroke of brilliance following a major mistake – but the movements behind them remained puzzling. Also, we had Keith spitting some more. At least we will always have that. Amazingly enough, the season that has been quite the enigma featured only two people who seemed to be playing a strong strategic [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 8 – Beans, Beans, The Musical Fruit

And now it may be official. San Juan Del Sur is on its way to the bottom of the Survivor pile. It’s a competitive bunch near the bottom. It’s got to compete with the Haves vs. Have Nots of Fiji. The age battle of Nicaragua – coincidence that this season is also filmed in Nicaragua? – is also a horrible season. The Colton-infested One World. The grinding and unlikable finalists of Thailand. This is what we have to deal with. What San Juan Del Sur [...]

Survivor 29: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 7 – The One That Happened Before Anything Good Can Happen

Sorry for the delay – life continues to get in the way of my punctuality when it comes to reality show blogging. I apologize yet again and continue to promise a much better effort/results in the weeks ahead. It’s been a long week, but finally, I can start talking about a really pretty useless Survivor episode before moving along to a much better Top Chef episode. But you care about Survivor. Here’s my blog…. Sun Tan Lady quit. She should never have been on this [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 6 – I’m A Meat Collector

More on that title in a bit, it really has nothing to do with what happened on this episode. I just snorted in laughter when I heard/thought I heard that line. You can tell it has been a subpar to mediocre season of Survivor when one of the best strategic moves of the season not only didn’t work, but resulted in the author of such a move getting voted out of the game. That is what happened here. Granted, it is not as if the [...]
