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 ...

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 [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 6 – A Warm Glass Of Shut The Hell Up

It has gotten to the point where if I see the long form credit sequence, I know we are going to be watching a subpar episode of Survivor. The scary part is that based on the tribal shuffling, we may be having some more issues coming up. Remember the inequity of the One World tribal shuffle? Yeah, we have a repeat. Our only hope to avoid a streak of blowouts will be for a lot of puzzle challenge – and even that is no guarantee, [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 5 – Brandon Spills The Beans On The Favorites

That was the most screwed up episode of Survivor in the Show’s history – and that’s saying something. The closest thing I can think of in the past seasons was when Sue Hawk lost her temper at the challenge and quit the game. She was reacting to what she called a sexual violation from Hatch a couple of days before during a challenge. Her ire was at Hatch, but since he was gone, it was directed at Probst. Maybe the grinding saga back in Thailand [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 4 – The Filipino Gollum

The Shamar Show. You were cancelled before your time. Just like Firefly. And Freaks and Geeks. And The Chevy Chase Show. Oh, ok, maybe not that last one. Actually, now that I think about it, yeah, The Shamar Show was just as horrible as the Chevy Chase Show. But at least it is over. Nothing against Sgt. Hulka – his service is amazing, and I am sure he’s a nice guy outside of the game, but boy, it was incredibly tiring to watch Hulka fight [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 3 – Hopelessly Devoted to You

At least, that’s what the Fans Tribe is saying about Sgt. Hulka, just one week into the game. But unlike the sweet singing of Olivia Newton-John and her dreamy young love for John Travolta , we are talking about the group’s decision to throw in with someone who just seems to like to yell at them a lot. That’s right – we have yet another episode where the Fans’ tribe dynamic is shaped through the prism of Sgt. Hulka. That’s three for three. Once again, [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 2 – Honey Badger Don’t Care

We are back for the second epis… Awww, hell, Dawn is crying again. I guess we are back on South Pacific. I am sure Ozzy will help her out. What? Oh, no, this isn’t a rerun. OK, so Brandon went crazy and… Come on, I am sure we are still watching South Pacific. Next thing you know Cochran will be giving a confessional in a weird position. SEE! There he is on some weird rock throne borrowed from the set of the Aquaman movie they [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Ep 1 – It’s DeJa Vu All Over Again

Hello Survivor fans and welcome to Season 26. If the locale looks familiar, well, it should. We are back in the Philippines. Again. This time with fewer sitcom actors and guys who fell into fires. Although, with the same amount of Malcolms. After watching Probst risk his life with an amazing cold open stunt – seriously, he was standing on top of some giant, Dr. Seussian rock spire as helicopters carrying Favorites came zooming past him – we meet the 10 Fans. If they didn’t [...]

Survivor: Caramoan – Preview – Fans vs. Favorites Part Two. Electric Boogaloo.

Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends. We’re so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside. Season 26 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 season to incorporate returning players. All-Stars and HvV were all returning players, so of course the Finals had all returners. And both seasons were very entertaining for varying reasons – ie, Rob and Amber and Really [...]

Survivor: Philippines –Reunion – The Kissing Bandit

Denise has won, she celebrates with her husband and daughter and the group settles into their ranked seating. However, it must be stated that before the votes are read, Probst leads the cast, crew and audience in a moment of silence for the Newtown children and teachers murdered last week. One moment just doesn’t feel like enough respect – but that was a nice gesture by the show. Denise is given just a cursory bit of attention from Probst – probably because she isn’t a [...]

Survivor: Philippines Finale – 25 Seasons, And A 24th Winner Is Named

Before I start – my mind has been just as distracted as everyone else’s in the last few days, and it has rendered my appreciation of reality TV muted. As the father of a six-year-old, my heart breaks every time I read a story or imagine the horrors felt by those beautiful children and their caregivers in their final moments, the lifelong wounds left on the minds of the boys and girls who walked away, and the untreatable tearing of the souls of the parents [...]
