Although I'm ashamed to admit it, here it goes: I watch Survivor. I know this is the "Everything Else" forum, but a Survior thread may be too much for a lot of Gamers With Jobs to stomach. So on the good chance either Certis or Elysium will be the benevolent deities they are and save you from this thread, I'll keep this relatively short.
Watch survivor last night? What did you think?
I thought it was great! It looks like that this season will be a lot of fun. It was so great to see the women win their immunity challenge... I thought they were goners at the first puzzle. I had trouble putting names and faces together (I also missed the first 10 minutes of the show)... but it's only the first episode.
I was impressed with the guys' shelter and survival skills. If they had managed to vote Roger off (the older marine guy I think), they would've been screwed. I'd like to see the older guys take charge of that camp. If they don't, every tribal council is going to degenerate into, "Wow! Heidi is so hot!" And every other scene of the guys' camp will be, "Magic 8-ball, will I score with Shawna?"
I hope the women get their camp going soon, although the preview of the next show hints otherwise. Also, I hope they do a better job communicating with Christy (the deaf woman).
The best line of the night had to be that guy suggesting that the women should try to build cell phones out of leaves in order to call their boyfriends to help with their shelter. It was so over-the-top misogynistic that I couldn't help laughing. Reminded me of surfer Rob and the Rob-father from the last two seasons. An idiot you don't want to win... but absurd enough to keep around just to see what stupid thing he'll say next.
What did y'all think?
