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 27: Blood vs. Water – Ep 1 – Don’t Let That Fool You!

Season 27 begins – a season with more twists than a Chubby Checker biopic. With more unexpected developments than an episode of Breaking Bad. And with the promise of some new unexpected dynamic between contestants – possibly the most in a long time. It is hard to predict what we see as the weeks go on, mainly because the contestants have so many new things to consider – they likely had all of their pre-show plans tossed out of the window. Perhaps not all of [...]

Survivor: Blood vs. Water – Preview – We Are Family. I’ve Got All My Survivors And Me

Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends. We’re so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside. Season 27 is kicking off this week, and we are continuing the recent trend of returning players. And why not? It works. As you know, this is the eighth, um, ninth season to incorporate returning players…er…wait a minute. This is exactly the start of my preview of last season. At this point…I think I can open every season with this intro. Last season, the streak [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Finale – And The Meek Shall Inherit A Million Bucks

Season 26 of Survivor came to a close last night and as it turns out, this season ranked most certainly in the top half of seasons – possibly in the top third. It is pretty amazing when you think back at the first half of the season – which was populated with insanity from Sgt. Hulka, Phillip and especially Brandon Hantz. More on him in the Reunion review. But the second half? Several great episodes marked with some effective strategy and, crazy as it may [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 13 – The One Where Cochran May Have Won It All

I am trying to come up with a scenario where Cochran doesn’t win Survivor this season – and I am having a hard time doing it. Unless he is the one that is being medically evacuated as teased in the coming attractions. Other than that, I don’t see it. It is hard to speculate on scenarios because of the medical emergency about to happen, but think about it. If Eddie gets hurt, Erik is the target – and Sherri would go if Erik won immunity. [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 12 – Seeking Blindsides Always Comes With A Price

Be careful on Survivor when you seek a blindside – because it may be you going home. On Once Upon A Time they say magic always comes with a price. On Survivor, seeking blindsides always comes with a major edited irony risk. But that’s for later in the column. Get our your Doublemint gum because it is double your tribal night. That’s right – two eliminations in this episode to line us up properly for next Wednesday’s Final Six elimination and the Mothers’ Day Final [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 11 – A Million Dollars Or A Bucket of Buds?

My favorite episode of any season which features it – the Survivor Auction. This coming on the heels of the wacky ousting of Phillip last week makes it four great episodes in a row. It is really funny how FvF2 is mirroring FvF1 by having a fairly uneven to poor series of early episodes – featuring some unpleasant characters (Brandon, Big Joel, etc) – leading up to pure insanity at the merge. Who knew when it was 8-4 Faves at the Merge that three of [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 10 – The Reason We Love Survivor

OK. First off – that was one hell of a dramatic Tribal Council. After over 400 of them it is amazing that they can have something happen so unexpected. And yet, there we were. So major props for the plot to throw a major curveball into this game. However, I don’t like rewarding bad behavior. First thing I don’t want rewarded – Eddie has not played a good game so far, and so that gift he was given was totally undeserved. I mean, what has [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 9 – You Get Nothing, Mike Snow

OK. That’s two weeks in a row of some wild vote scrambling – perhaps there is hope for this season yet. I am hopeful that we have put the Hulka/Brandon wackiness in our rearview mirrors and that this season is going to sprint to the finish with some craziness. If we learned anything this week, it is this. 1 – Malcolm has brass. 2 – Dawn is the ultimate spy because no one seems to ever suspect her. 3 – Women need to stay clear [...]

Survivor, April 10 – Idol, Idol, Who’s Got the Idol

This has been one confusing episode of Survivor. Often I do work while I'm watching the show, but it didn't work too well when I tried that last night. I missed out on everything. At the end I found myself asking … what just happened? I had to rewatch the show, or at least all those key conversations, to find the changing alliances and voting plans. One thing I found was that Malcolm is one crafty guy.Once again an idol just became important in a [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 8 –Ginger Kobayashi And The Case Of The Blown Blindside

Well, that merge sure was busy. For a season which has had seven previous episodes primarily focused on the absurd behavior of Sgt. Hulka, Brandon and Phillip, we finally had an episode which was an old-school, hard-core Survivor episode. It had it all – merges, feasts, backstabbing, shifting alliances, swing votes, and friggin’ gross food. It was Season 1-like in the eating challenges, and up there with some of the great merge episodes with the scrambling for power. These are my favorites: Australia and the [...]
