I'm coming off a bit of a cold/flu thingy, and now we're right in the heart of the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, so my apologies if this is a little short this week. There's lots of great comedy to check out (and later write about) -- but I want to get this up tonight for you party people, so here goes!
Tonight's episode of Survivor: Heroes vs.
Well, there's one thing for certain after this week's episode of Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains: viewers either loved this episode or hated it. When two alpha players the likes of Boston Rob and Russell end up on opposite alliances, it's going to result in a messy confrontation, and that makes for entertaining but polarizing television.
After a week off due to March Madness, we had our annual special Wednesday episode of Survivor, and what a spectacular episode it was! There was individual immunity, team reward, both teams going to Tribal Council, an immunity idol in play, and a questioning of a Survivor legend's legacy.
Despite a reward challenge where James almost had to leave the game because of a mysterious leg injury, things were pretty much the same in Survivor-land. The Heroes proved to be pretty much anything but heroic once again, and the Villains were once again working as a tight unit -- at least during the challenges, that is. Oh, and Russell "knighted" Coach.
This one is a little more recap than review. I'm in Los Angeles right now putting together some Oscar reports and coverage for ShowbizMonkeys.com, so I'm not able to go through my summary notes on tonight's Survivor episode and come up with more of a review.
After last week's theatrics on the Heroes tribe, the previews for this week's episode looked like things were going to continue to be chaotic for the "good guys". There were shots of James getting crazy at a challenge, and it looked like he was headed well past going off the deep end, and on his way to the bottom of the ocean.
Things are getting crazy on the island, and we're only a few days in! Just like Survivor: All-Stars, there is a lot of turmoil early on. But unlike that show, it doesn't seem to be personalities clashing based on previous relationships. This seems to be more a case of people who have played the game before thinking they know better than anyone how to play the game.
Ten years ago, a little show called Survivor debuted as summer filler on CBS. Called a "reality show", it was a kind of hybrid mix of a game show and documentary, with a bit of Gilligan's Island thrown in.
Sorry for the lateness of this review, but I've been a little bit busy. I had the opportunity of actually going to the Survivor Gabon Finale this Sunday so I just recently got back to Michigan and in front of my computer.
I don't have too much to say about this episode, other then I am in eager anticipation for the final two episodes! It was only a month ago I was detesting the season for its boring episodes and the endless losing streak of Fang, but its amazing what a merge and a few sleeping strategists can do!
