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: 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 [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 5 – Surround and Drown

For everyone who was intensely interested to see how the Rocker and Drew eliminations would alter the tribe dynamics going forward…well, too bad, so sad. We have new tribes. As with most tribal shakeups, the new tribes have some intriguing scenarios too. You can’t control the random nature of things. My favorite one was when All-Stars did a second tribal shakeup and the tribes stayed virtually the same – except Amber. Of course that led to the Rob-Lex feud – so it was totally worth [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 4 – Hubris Joins The Tribe

Forget the Rocker madness…this one rocked. I’m going to delay mentioning the name of the ousted Survivor so those on my Facebook feed don’t get spoiled until they click the link. So, what’s going on? The Royals are in the World Series. There’s an epidemic in Africa. Prince is hosting SNL. There’s a new version of “Twin Peaks” being made. There’s war in the Middle East and Russia is being a major concern. So, instead of being closer to the 2015 in “Back to The [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Ep 3 – Rocked Like A Hurricane

And the Great John Rocker Experiment comes to an end. Interestingly enough, the former ball player gets the boot at the exact same point in the game that former coach Jimmy Johnson got tossed. There were completely different reasons, of course, but I am sure celebrity played a fairly large and undercover end part in the Rocker elimination. Yes, Rocker had tons of baggage and his mouth got him in a lot of trouble in this episode. He also played a rather strange game of [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur: Blood vs. Water 2 – Ep 2 – The Terrible Lie

I am just happy I got to make a reference to a Nine Inch Nails’ song in the title. That mea culpa I made last week about Rocker? I’m taking it back. Next week seems to indicate that the old John Rocker is about to come out and play. This week we learned that he doesn’t really truly understand how to play Survivor – even if he is trying to play the game. And incredibly, despite his mistakes, he didn’t make the worst one. That [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur: Blood vs. Water 2 – Ep 1 – Perception Means Everything

I know – new season, same late entry. Yada yada yada. The funniest part about writing the Survivor previews every season is that I almost always turn out to be horribly wrong. That’s the dangers of writing about things based solely on the written word. It is hard to learn about context when you are only reading people’s thoughts. You don’t actually see them interact with other people. You don’t see how they respond to the harsh conditions that is the actual game of Survivor. [...]

Survivor: San Juan Del Sur: Blood vs. Water 2 – Season 29 Premiere – “Off Their Rockers”

You know what time it is, folks? It’s Survivor Time! Do you want to know what you’re playing for? Survivors ready! The tribe has spoken. Do you want to knock your husband to the ground? Wait, what was that last one? That’s right, we are back with more Blood vs. Water (for our new fans – it is a season where family members compete. Will blood be thicker than water? Will people vote out their mothers in the hope of willing a million bucks? What [...]
