The Voice, Oct. 21 – Real Battles

Unlike the previous week's battles, these really are battles and not duets. Not that duets are bad, it just makes it really hard to choose one or see one of ...

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 ...

It's the last of the blind auditions. None of the coaches have many spots left on their team, and they're all being super-picky. Cee Lo Green, of course, has the ...

Survivor Cagayan Finale – If I Had A Million Dollars…

Well, I would not ask Woooooooo! for advice on how to obtain it. Wooooooo!, meet Colby. You two are now forever entwined in Survivor lore when it comes to how to not select an opponent in the Final Two. Before I get into the finale of one of the best seasons of this show – an incredible feat for a show that has now put on 28 seasons, I need to address something. I am posting this a week late – sort of a reminder [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 13 – Llama Llama Mad At Mama Kass

Well, that was certainly an interesting episode. Any Survivor episode that includes references to Skeletor, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Pauly Shore, an interesting pitch for a retro 80s teen movie, llama sounds, and, of course, a late season blindside is certainly an episode worth viewing. And I didn’t even mention one of my favorite challenges – the Cake The Survivors Full Of Mud Challenge. Great episode, Survivor. And it leaves a fascinating Final Four out there. I don’t even know where to begin. [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 12 – The Razor Thin Margin Of Error

Sometimes I hate being correct. Now, one thing to tell you. I had a crazy work week coupled with a trip to New York to spend time with some people very dear to me. Plus a Billy Joel concert. And a Broadway show – who could have predicted that a Bridges of Madison County Musical would be so amazing? So that’s why we have a super late post this week. Sadly, the part where I am correct and a man with solid predictions is where [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 11 – The Opposite of Bland

That title has a double meaning. And it is sure sign of what you think of my writing – because if you like cheap jokes about contestants’ names…then you probably will track me down and ask me to autograph your laptop. Computer. Not your…oh ok, I’ll stop. This season is the opposite of bland. It is exciting, spicy, unpredictable and full of insanity. In addition, the show is now the opposite of a show featuring Jefra Bland. It is now Jefra-free. And yes, Jefra’s actual [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 10 – I Gotta Wash Up. I Gotta Wash Up

The hits just keep on coming this season, which I have now officially dubbed the craziest Survivor season of them all. Just think about this – which played out at the Tribal Council. Spencer played his idol as he gambled that the Majority Alliance would target him instead of Jeremiah. I totally get that – it was a 50/50 situation and in that case you protect yourself. He guessed wrong. Nothing he can do about that, he survives for three more days, but he has [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 9 – What The Heck Is Going On?

Wait…what just happened? I have to say, this season has claimed the title of Craziest Survivor Season Ever. And really, it’s not even all that close. Some past seasons have been a bit wacky – borderline crazy. Cook Islands, Amazon, Heroes vs. Villains, etc. They have all had strange things going on, odd decisions, and huge power shifts. This season has it all and then some. One thing it has that other seasons lack…giant moves that make no sense to the viewer. First Kass blew [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 8 – The BrotherWoo Of The Traveling Pants

Just as I suspected, the Pagonging has begun. Let’s hope it stops before it gets boring. The aftermath of Kass’ terrible, horrible move last week unfolded with little to no strategizing throughout the episode. Not once did I suspect that Kass was flipping back, even when they began to allude to Spencer trying to pull a Yul move on her on the beach. Remember when Yul got Jonathan to flip? He came to him at the merge and showed him the idol. Spencer said something [...]

Survivor: Cagayan: Ep 7 – A Series Of Unfortunate Strategic Moves

Somewhere the best Survivor players in the first 27 seasons of the game were collectively cringing as this season’s pivotal merge Tribal Council unfolded. Surely they were entertained, but boy, they were probably thinking that if only they got to return this season to join this cast, they’d have an easy run to the end. Imagine some of the better strategist who never won – Rob C, Stephen, and many others – taking on this lot. Oh, and I know, I’m late, I’m sorry, I [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 6 – Quitters Never Win…Obviously

I know you’ve heard this song and dance before – but really, I mean it this time. I am mostly caught up on a lot of the backlog I have been working through at home and at work and am crossing my fingers that I will reset my schedule and routine to enable a more timely post to you folks. Especially next week when the merge comes and the game begins to take shape for the later episodes. This week we had two Survivors depart [...]

Survivor: Cagayan – Ep 5 – The Meek Shall Inherit The Tribe

So, I was out of town for a few days and began working a new job this week. It was also my first week living as a single dad, without my kid, so it was a bit weird. That’s my really, really good excuse for a late and short Survivor column this week. You guys ok with that? It’s not as if you really have a choice after all. Anyway, this week showed two things about Survivor that we should always remember – first, contestants [...]
