Is anyone else excited? I read that it's so good that they had to do a 2 hour premiere show, instead of the usual 1 hour show. Can't wait!
I'm right there with ya Getting my popcorn bowl out already.
I am SO excited! Hubby is picking up a pizza so I don't have to cook!!!! I also have a cake due tomorrow, now that I know it's a 2 hour show, I gotta boogy home after work and get my butt decorating!!! Thankfully it's an easy one!! Is there a Survivor discussion group/thread we can start for Fridays? I always had a pow-wow with my friends at my old job on Friday morning so we could analyze the previous night's show. That might be fun to start!!!
I can't wait!! I love Survivor.
You all got to go to www.twop.com It is called Television Without Pity. They watch the show and they give thier own interpretation about the happenings. Sometimes it is very funny. There is a little language sometimes, but it is pretty good. Then you can grade the episodes.

With Big Brother we just use one thread. What do y'all think? Multiple threads, or just the one for the season? Whatever we do-I'M IN!
Here is my favorite Survivor site: www.survivorsucks.com
I like the idea of one thread so we can find it.
I'm in for one thread toooooo.
I'm taping it now!! Its one hour into it so I can skip all the commercials.
They're off to a great start! I think the first person eliminated was a great person to get rid of, the second one should have just shut up and worked, and would have stayed , IMHO. There have been much weaker players that have stayed much longer in past seasons, but they kind of went under the radar (like Cirie).
Ya know, it never ceases to amaze me how they talk at tribal council. I mean, if I felt that there was a chance that I was going to be voted off, I wouldn't sit there and talk bad about everyone. Geeez, that's just stupid! I thought it was really clever how they made the fish hook and actually caught fish with it. Pretty resourceful. It looks like an interesting bunch.
Unfortunately, I am a Survivor Junkie. I have to watch. But I am constantly amazed that after all these years, the idiots act like they never even saw a show. They don't wear the right clothes, they act surprised that they are miserable. They are stunningly dense, sometimes.
for example, the Olympian who complained about having to climb a hill in a dress- why are you wearing a dress in the first place!!!!
In any case, it was a very interesting start.
JoAnnB....EXACTLY!!! I was just saying the same thing about what they were wearing. I also wonder if they have ever watched the show before. Some of the new survivors never cease to amaze me.
You would think by now that they would be wearing layers and layers of things under their clothes-and wearing sensible shoes!
I was very surprised at what a wimp the amazon lady olympian was when they were climbing the hill.
It was a good thing to get rid of Gillian early. She was annoying. Bony girl, too. She was a major complainer.
Yes, Bony girl was truly pitiful. even when she left tribal council, she was still wearing basically her under wear. She was so whining about being so cold-and thought the rest of her team was 'retarded' she should have been slapped.
My husband and I were discussing the show and we figure that the contestants were maybe brought together and "surprised" and that's why many were dressed in completely inappropriate clothing. The show probably does not want them to have the advantage of knowing when they will leave. That is the only reason I can imagine why a guy would be wearing a suit and TIE and a woman might be wearing a dress. It appeared that a few were prepared for it though, with layers and proper shoes.
Crystal, the Olympic gold-medalist athlete, is a 400 meter relay runner...she runs a quarter mile on a flat track. Sure, she was wearing a dress, but she was wearing athletic shoes. I was quite surprised that anyone made it up that hill without difficulty.
I love survivor, but I'm always amazed that these new contestants never benifit from past shows too. They are able to choose their own team...and there is always a group of strong healthy players that work great as a team, and the misfits that can't even talk without fighting, let alone be a team. I don't know about you, but if staying on the show and winning ammunity was a priority, I'd be picking the studs! (who am I kidding, i would have done that anyway )
Does anybody have survivor pools? We have a family pool, and a work pool. It adds to the fun of watching each week...so far I have lucked out, still have all 4 of my guys! Woo-hoo!
Answer me this.... It was like day one or two and they were looking for and eating termites!!! That should be saved for day ten or twelve with no food. You don't do that right away!
And why would they choose the older lady - Louise, I think. Her reasoning was, "Us moms should stick together"
That was one of the silliest reasons for picking someone for a team. Unless that mom was a gladiator, I'd have to think again.
That hill did seem pretty tough but Crystal looks to be in really good shape. I still expected her to do a little better than that and not have to literally be pulled. Bony girl even made it way ahead of her.
I was laughing at GC's face at tribal when they were suggesting he be the leader. He did not want to do it! I didn't blame him, it's the kiss of death. He was too young for it anyway.
I was sooo conflicted Thursday. 2 hour Survivor, 1 hour Office premier and 2 hours of Grey's Anatomy. That wasn't fair.
Now for Amazing Race tomorrow...
Survivor, Survivor! How will I fit all these shows into my schedule?! I can only record 2 shows on my dvr at a time & I have to watch one of the shows being recorded. You'd think with technology these days we'd be able to dvr more then 2 shows at a time! LOL! Agggghhh!!
I think this Survivor will have a lot of fights on it. Seems everyone isn't getting along already. Go figure~
i love survivor. my favorite player this season is Bob. i hope they don't start to take advantage of him though.
I hope they arrange the Veep debate around Survivor!
I agree that Bob is pretty cool. I'm looking forward to seeing more of what he pulls out of his hat this season. And the teams? Yeah, I was laughing when the one mom picked the other mom solely because "us moms have to stick together" but moms do have a common bond that can probably be helpful when the homesickness kicks in. Anyways, I'm an avid survivor fan and looking forward to this season as well.
whoohooo! It's on tonight!! well, depending on the vice pres. debates.
I miss big brother though, you get to see more of the going ons
wonder who is going tonight?
I'd like to see Randy go...he's so negative...
I didn't get to see it last night...I just started a new job and am gone 13-14 hours a day and didn't set the VCR to record. Can anyone fill me in on a general gist/idea of what happened? I probably won't get a chance to sit in front of the computer for an hour even if they have the episodes available online to view. This new job is SO exhausting.
Haileysmom, even if you don't have time to watch th episode, they still have a full written recap of the show at cbs. Paloma was the third person voted out...
Paloma was a goober. She needed to go. Do any of you watch "The Office"? She reminded me so much of Kelly Kapoor.
I was surprised that the professional gamer beat the physicist (or whatever he is) in the math puzzle challenge. Crystal did a great job pulling people off the poles. I think she could have hung with the men on that one.
Poor Jackie. I was kind of surprised the voted her off. Oh well!
Yeah, I think Kelly should have been the one to go. She certainly is the weakest link....
