Tonight's gonna be a quick review/recap of the latest episode of Survivor -- unlike the episode itself, which went on and on and on. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, though. Things went slow because it was all about strategy and voting this week, with both teams heading to Tribal Council in a now-regular twist.
I know I'm sounding like a broken record now, but these castaways really are frustrating to watch! The few that seem likable aren't getting any screen time, and we're just left with a lot of whiny NaOnka, bossy Tyrone, and conceited Marty.
I've read it elsewhere, including Dalton Ross' EW.com blog, but this fact about Survivor: Nicaragua can't possibly be overstated: there are not a lot of likable castaways this season. And with one of the few worth rooting for (Super Bowl-winning coach Jimmy Johnson) being sent home last week, it made for a very painful episode to watch.
So here we are -- fall has come, and another season of Survivor (its 21st!) is upon us. Another group of strangers, a mix of young and old regular people have once again been sent to a tropical locale (this time, the Central American country of Nicaragua) and forced to survive the elements, the challenges, and each other in an attempt to win $1,000,000 as the Sole Survivor.
