The end is upon us! That is the theme of this blog tonight. It’s been a heck of a ride, but it’s finally come to an end. Is everybody ok with that? I know I am.
The show begins with 9 minutes of me fast-forwarding and then Erik is going home! What?!? Really? That’s pretty crazy. He’s made it all the way to the final five and is just now cashing out? He probably should have chowed down on some more burgers before he left to do the show. Maybe that would have gotten him through the final few days. And, didn’t he JUST go on a reward? Perhaps, it’s all because Survivor skimped on the reward meals this year, only giving out finger foods and fruits? Hell, this is the guy who heard non-existent coconuts laughing at him – I think he needed a little more than a bologna sandwich and Hawaiian bread to hold him over…
Still, all kidding aside, how devastating is that to be knocked out of the game this late … Continue reading
Hmm…up until the end of the episode, I was a little underwhelmed with this episode. I sort of feel as if nothing really happened up until that last moment. So, you’ll have to excuse me if this blog seems a bit brief. I’ll make the best of what they gave me to go on, but that wasn’t all that much!
The episode started off with Eddie telling us that he’s a sitting duck and that he’s all but gone already. So, Survivor common sense would say that he’s not exactly the sitting duck he tells us he is. Perhaps a big move is on its way. Although, at this point in the game, all moves are “big,” seeing as how there are only 6 people left, and 4 days left until the game is over. Tensions are high, paranoia is undeniable, and trust is at an all-time low. Will the five vote out the obvious choice, Eddie, or can Eddie use his smooth-talking ways to talk his way into the final five? And, in case … Continue reading
And so begins the time of the year where we truly just want the season to end! I know I’ve said that this season has been surprisingly good (which it has), but it’s still Survivor – still 5 episodes too long, 5 twists too many, and 5,000 pointless ITMs deep, to the point where you’re just tired of the same ol’, same ol’ and really just want everyone gone because you’re favorite was voted out 2-3 weeks ago! Maybe I’m just Survivor burnt out. I guess I should come out and admit it that at some point this past year (or two years ago), I realized that I’m starting to hate reality television. Part of me thinks it’s because I’ve been blogging about it for a few years now, but another part of me realizes that I spend way too much time getting to know people that I end up hating, and yet spend so much time in front of the TV watching these idiots when I should be watching the NBA playoffs, a scripted … Continue reading
