I'm thinking the Survivor seasons drag on and on. I tend to lose interest as I've done with this season as well. The show was exciting and fun in the beginning seasons. Is it just me recognizing this?

^Probably not.

I'm still enjoying it though. Even a subpar season like this one.

Having returning players both adds and subtracts something I feel. It adds some interest in terms of seeing how they'll do, and seeing a familair player to root for or against right out of the gate. But I find that they are dominating the game too much. I'm beginning to think that the other contestants are unduly influenced by "celebrity worship." They can't seem to get rid of the returnin players most of the time. I don't think they would have ever had the cajones to vote out Ozzy if he hadn't ordered them to.

The Heros vs Villians season was outstanding though. It was quite entertaining to see so many people playing the game at such a high level. I think the problem with two returning players and a bunch of novices is that you have two people playing a high level and everyone else bumbling around and that makes it kind of boring and predicatable.

Boring episode. Coach is gonna win this.

And I saw a preview tonight, and CBS sure is good at spoiling things.

BO-RING.

Though in truth, they've gotten better over the years. Now mostly new scenes and not just edits of what we already saw.

Tonight's episode for example really revealed more of how terribly Cochran was treated by his tribe.

I still can't get over how stupid Savaii was to essentially hand him over to the other team. They have no one but themselves to blame for his defection.

Even Jeff Probst doesn't want to watch the recap episode! He didn't do his usual live Twitter updates this week!

I think the episode more clearly pointed out to me that Coach is an extraordinary a$$hole and a bully. His behaviour when Mikayla was sick was beneath that of an 8-year-old kid.

I actually liked the recap episode. I was watching it with my girlfriend and she doesn't really watch the show. It helped bring her up to speed on things. I laughed when they showed the scene of Dawn doing a confessional and Ozzy strolled by.


Survivor 4 Life, baby! Recap shows and all!

I'm over these losers handing Coach a million bucks. Can't wait for next season's awesome twist

 
Where two tribes live on the same beach throughout the game. Should lead to a lot of new strategy and a lot of work for whoever wins that one.

I agree. I really don't care to see Coach win, but the rest of the field is so pathetic. I really can't think of anyone who deserves it more.

The twist for next season sounds cool!

Thats the sad thing. There's like nobody left who's been playing the game...its Coach and 6 coat tail riding pygmies.

Weird- I was just thinking about that potential idea a few days ago and how interesting it would be if they ever did that.

Everyone thinks about possible Survivor twists when they're taking a shower, right?
