SURVIVOR: BLOOD VS WATER 2

Welcome back, folks, for Season 28 of Survivor, aka The Greatest Show in the History of Television. I’m Bryan Fischer and I’m back (thanks to Reality Steve!) to offer up one of the more – R-rated – recaps. For those of you who are new to my column, I provide a slightly more adult look at the show we all love to watch (…or is it more juvenile…?) Whatevs, I realize many of you are huge fans of the show, just like I am, so I do try to respect that fact and provide an insightful, snarky, and humorous take on the show that takes over our Wednesdays.

And judging by the action in the Twitterverse today (Wednesday), there are a shit-ton of folks looking forward to tonight’s episode! Okay, I get it, I like the show too, but it seems like some people are just staring at a blank TV until 8pm. Holy crap, get a life! But before you do that, sit down with glass of wine, or a highball cocktail, or … Continue reading

SURVIVOR: BRAINS VS BRAWN VS BEAUTY FINALE – 5/21/14

Here we are. The finale. We’ve been waiting for this night ever since the tease at last year’s reunion show. All those months waiting and wondering how Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty was going play out, and then watching, aghast at every crazy twist that unfolded. We cringed at the stupid decisions made on Day 1, idol clues revealed a “Sophie’s Choice,” alliances formed, people snapped, and tribes almost disintegrated. There was talk of throwing challenges, near fisticuffs, stolen clues, and a mysterious new idol with “special powers” unseen in this game.

We witnessed Tony’s antics. The honest cop, who started telling lies on Day 1, and finding idols. He made proclamations of playing dirty, and eventually formed his “CopsRUs” alliance with Sarah. His paranoia was evident from the start, with his eavesdropping, swearing on family members, and not one, but two “SpyShacks.” And I’m sure at some point in the game, most of us thought his gameplay would come back to bite him in the ass…

Then there was Spencer and his perceived superiority, … Continue reading

SURVIVOR: BRAINS VS BRAWN VS BEAUTY – 5/14/14

Hello again, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the penultimate episode of “Brainiacs vs. Biceps vs. Boob Jobs.” Holy crap, it’s been a long time since I’ve used that phrase. I think the show decided to move away from using the “BvsBvsB” attributions since those labels were clearly erased weeks ago. What has it been since then? Methinks “Boneheads vs. BALD-Faced liars vs. Beefcake/Boobs” is a tad more a propos

Nice to see the Twittersphere is still super pumped on this season, with many calling it “one of the best seasons ever.” Jeff Probst continues to tweet about that, which says something because he doesn’t ALWAYS do that. And if you haven’t noticed, there seems to be a bit of a feud developing between Tony and Russell Hantz over Tony’s gameplay. Many have been comparing him to Russell, who obviously doesn’t take kindly to being compared to ANYONE. The man’s a trailblazer! There’s been some amusing back and forth between them, which is either a harmless little spat between two dominant players (in their respective … Continue reading
