Survivor: Island of the Idols, week one

You could be forgiven for not knowing this, but for a while some eight- or nine-ish years ago this blog used to be prime juicy real estate for Survivor hot takes. That is until CBS aired a few seasons in a row that were soul-suckingly awful and I quit watching. Without making a big […]

Survivor: South Pacific (week four)

Okay, now I’m sure of it: Jim is the best player this season. He skimmed by on Ozzy’s alliance just long enough to make sure the competition (Cochran, Dawn, etc.) couldn’t turn the tables without him, then started looking for ways to fracture the alliance to his benefit. In particular, he noted Ozzy’s tendancy to […]

Survivor: South Pacific (week three)

Sometimes Survivor is all shock and sizzle, but sometimes things just go exactly the way you expect. This episode was one of those.

First up is the Redemption Duel: Semhar vs. Christine. The order of the day is balancing a wooden statue on top of a long, thin pole. Semhar psyched herself up for the […]

Survivor: South Pacific (week two)

Episode 2:

Yes, I’m still determined to get caught up by Thanksgiving.

Episode two opens with Semhar crying on Redemption Island, wondering how people can be so cold-hearted as to vote her out. (Presumably she wouldn’t be cold-hearted if she’d stayed, and the person she voted for left instead. This little inconsistancy is never addressed.)


Survivor: South Pacific (week one)

I’ll add an image here later. Peanut’s on my computer right now looking at porn. Sorry!

Welcome to Survivor: South Pacific. They had to call it that because Survivor: They’re In Samoa Again just isn’t as catchy.

So, Ozzy and Coach. That’s a thing that happened.

My contempt for Coach is well documented in my […]

Survivor: Redemption Island (Finale)

I cannot for the life of me find my notes for week twelve, and I am not inclined to re-watch the episode. The highlights were interesting, but most of it was just the continuation of The Boston Rob Show (feat. Phillip!).

The highlights were as follows: Andrea shows up on Redemption Island and gives […]

Survivor: Redemption Island (week twelve)

When Steve walked into the Redemption Island camp, his excuse for why he got voted off was “I just didn’t want to go back there tonight.” You know, because it was totally up to him.

Now that Zapatera is totally gone, Ometepe is going to have to start eating itself. It doesn’t seem like […]

Survivor: Redemption Island (week eleven)

Matt is done. He is utterly spent. He hates this stupid island, and this stupid game, and these stupid people, and stupid Jeff Probst, and he just wants to go home. Except he keeps winning challenges, because God’s plan something something. I think we’re beyond the question of what God’s plan is for Matt […]

Survivor: Redemption Island (week ten)

Maybe it’s just the lighting, but Matt is starting to look a little bit like Jesus out there.

Ahem. Let’s talk rice.

Oh my god, games of Suvivor have been won and lost on cups full of rice. At one point in the game, Ometepe and Zapatera had about the same amount of rice. […]

Survivor: Redemption Island (week nine)

Hell no, I haven’t given up on Redemption Island! This season has been great so far! I knew I’d want to go back and finish it up later, and so here we are. I went back and read through my write-ups to this point, and was delighted to find I still had […]
