90-minute Survivor premiere on Wed., Sept. 24, 2014. Fast approaching. Can't wait!! I wonder if this is a 2 hour premiere, but with commercial time, it's a 90 minute episode. I dunno.

New 'Survivor' cast boasts MLB pitcher John Rocker, Spider-Man actor, and 'Amazing Race' twins (http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/08/27/survivor-john-rocker-amazing-race-twins-spider-man/)


Ugh! This is bullsh*t! Why the f*ck are the Amazing Race Twins being invited to Survivor? They are as annoying as hell. Hated them both times on The Amazing Race. Whiny is the best way to describe them. I hope they get the boot in episode 1, just as they did on the second spin on AR. NOT looking forward to these idiots.

So long...

...Nadiya!! Hahahahahaha! I can't stand her or her twin sister. They are the only reason why I wasn't looking forward to this season of Survivor with the same vigor I usually have for the the show. I hated them both times on The Amazing Race and I knew it was going to be more of the same bickering, arguing and constant running of the mouth. Hell, the game hadn't even started and the two of them were back to doing the same sh*t as before. I knew that one or the other would be the prime target to kick off and sure enough, it happened. So glad that she is gone. Now here's to hoping her equally annoying sister is the next to go next week!!

As for the other players, I'm still trying to assess who I think can go all the way and it's not clear at the moment. No one has really stood out yet as having all the tools necessary to get to the end. I can say that I absolutely don't want John Rocker winning it. I'd like to see him get the boot in week 3.

Hey Chip everyone else. Once again I am in, this time I do have some to watch with. John Rocker will take of himself I am sure. I have watched the amazing race but dont know the twins. This early its hard to tell who may win it.

Hey Jim....glad yer back! As for the Twins, they were in the previous two seasons of The Amazing Race. I totally forgot that they has moved TAR to Fridays from their typical Sunday slot, so I need to catch the premiere episode OnDemand. Really baffled why they would move one of their top performing shows to the dreaded Friday night slots. That's where they send shows to die so I don't agree with CBS' decision to do that at all. Not smart thinking on their part.

Method To This Madness

So long....

....Val. A great episode that ended with a thud. First, the good stuff. Watching John Rocker get beat by his own girlfriend was great. Watching him get his ass handed to him in the Immunity challenge, ending with a bloody nose was even better! Haha. The mother / daughter face off was interesting. The kid gets a split lip by the one that brought her into the world. Baylor's crying fit was.....scary. This season is stacked with some hotties and man, they sure paid a pretty penny for their puppies! Flaunt it they did! Bikini = Winner!  ;D Now for the bad....or more to the point....baffling, head scratching "movie". I don't get why Val would brag about having one, let alone two Hidden Immunities. As soon as she heard from Rocker that 3 votes were coming her way at tribal, she should have confessed that she didn't have any Idols. What the f*ck did she think was going to happen during the vote? DUMB IDIOT!!!! Ugh!

Actions Vs. Accusations

So long....

....John. Thank God! Look, I've never been a fan of the guy. I hated him when he was playing for the Braves for a lot of reasons. Sure, his racist and homophobic comments back in the day has a lot to do with my dislike for the guy. But was also his arrogance that wasn't warranted. I thought that he was average at best. He just always came across as being dumb and now we have proof that he is in fact what I just said he is. To have a Hidden Immunity in you pocket and you still don't play it is asinine. Given the hostility within your own Tribe and how sketchy everyone is, what in your f*cking mind convinced you to believe you had them wrapped around your finger? Ugh. Idiot! Another idiot was of course Natalie. For her to basically beat her chest and tell John "she's not afraid of him and to come at her" was f*cking stupid in so many ways. I want her gone next.

I was watching baseball when the whole John Rocker thing went down. However I kinda forgot the details. Having him on the show is making me wonder about the producers -production team?-. I bet there are a bunch of past there prime ball players who would love to be on the show. I will keep watching Glad he is gone.

Episode 4
We're A Hot Mess
(http://i.imgur.com/SfhcoSn.gif)



So long...

...Drew. Dude you are without one of the dumbest players ever on Survivor and definitely an idiot in life. Look, if you plan on throwing challenges, then you damn well better be bringing something to the tribe of value. The fact that you have been sleeping on your ass since day one of this season and were called lazy by your own tribe should have told you that you were not safe from the vote. As I said, dumb. I'm glad you're gone. That will leave someone else a better chance of winning the game. But here's my problem with this season. There isn't one person on either tribe that I even like and the majority of everyone left playing the game is absolutely clueless. I hope there are a couple of players left that are very smart and are doing a great job of playing it down to fly under the radar. But at this rate, based on what I've seen....that isn't likely.

Okay, with that out of the way, the reason why I'm a week late in my review for the episode that aired last week is that I kept waiting for it to appear OnDemand. As of an hour agon, it still hasn't been uploaded. I had to go to Plex to find the episode to watch. Getting very p*ss off at whoever is in charge of OnDemand because a lot of my shows are not getting timely episodes added each week.

Episode 5
Blood Is Blood

(http://i.imgur.com/SfhcoSn.gif)


So long...

...Kelley.


It's one thing to have a loved one voted off on the other tribe, but it's a different beast having to sit there and watch your own tribe voting off your daughter. If I was in Dale's position, I would be furious to the point that my outburst would most likely derail my own game on Survivor. Really not sure what the logic was in voting off Kelley. Baylor is a bigger mystery as is her mother Missy. They are unknowns and from what I've seen so far on the show, are not liked by many and that may be the reason why they were spared. Take the one everyone hates to the end so that you can get more votes in your favor. With that said, I'm still not feeling it with any of the contestants. This is probably one of the most boring group of players on Survivor in the past 15 Seasons.

I hate having to watch Survivor on my PC. But with my TV DOA today, I don't really have a choice. Sigh.

Episode 6
Make Some Magic Happen

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

...Dale. First his daughter gets the boot last week and now he follows right behind her. It's not that I was pulling for him to win it all, but it would have been awesome had he been able to survive tonight's vote by promising to surrender his "Hidden Immunity Idol" should he make it to the merge. Would loved to have seen the look on their faces when they realized that it was a bogus Idol and that they just got played. Oh well. I never thought I'd say this and I can't believe I'm about to say it, but out of a pool of horrible, weak, lame and boring ass players, Natalie has just shot to the top of who could win this. Not saying I want her to win, but I think she is making moves that could benefit her down the stretch run. The fact that she volunteered to go to Redemption Island with Baylor, foregoing the food reward tells me her head is in the right space for Survivor. Lets see if it pays off.

I love it when a Tribe fails miserably and when they call on Jeff for help, he's gonna make it a brutal payout for said help. I knew that for a bag of rice, he would ask for pretty much everything in return.....their camp! Hahahaha.

Million Dollar Decision

So long...

...Julie. You suck! Just when things were starting to look up for this season and the merge in full effect, we are reminded once again that the players on this season don't belong and are totally undeserving of being allowed at the chance for a million bucks. I had to laugh when Julie felt that she was being targeted by the others because of her 'boobs'. Her words, not mine. Trust me, it had nothing to do with those and everything to do with you just being so stuck up and entitled. She quit because her ego couldn't handle the fact that she was going to be voted off. I guess she would rather be known as a quitter for the rest of her life. Good riddance.

Wrinkle In The Plan
(http://i.imgur.com/SfhcoSn.gif)



So long...

...Josh. There is nothing better than seeing someone that has already been agreed upon by the majority as the person that will be voted off that night at Tribal Council. So, I was happy to see Jeremy win the Immunity Necklace, thus saving his own neck. I really didn't have an opinion on Josh one way or the other. He was playing the game, but he was never going to win the prize had he made it to the end. I actually see Jeremy (if he continues to win the Immunity's from here on out) and Natalie making it to the Top 3. With that said, I still don't have any player(s) that I'm rooting for, which is odd. There is always at least one player by now that gets my vote and gives me a vested interest throughout the season. Not the case this season.

Episode 9
Getting To Crunch Time

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

...Jeremy. Looks like I spoke too soon. Last week I said that as long as Jeremy continued to win the Individual Immunity challenges, he could make it to the Top 3. But then again, I never thought he would be dumb enough to give up his Food Reward to his biggest competitor. Sent to Exile Island with no food, no shelter and no bed, is it any wonder that he was done and couldn't make a run at it during the next challenge. Solid episode that shows why Survivor is great TV viewing when things hit the fan and nothing is preordained. It sucks that Jeremy is gone because in a season full of crappy players with sh*tty personalities, he was one that I suddenly wanted to see win, just to spite the other players.

So long...

...Wes. What a stupid move by Reed. Dude, you are without a doubt one of the dumbest people on the planet. You want Keith to vote with you in getting Jon voted out. So why on God's green Earth would you call Keith out during Tribal Council and put him on the spot that he has a Hidden Immunity Idol? Because of your shortsightedness, you altered the course of the game and gave Jon the paranonia he needed to play his own Idol. Once again, Reed, you f*cking suck. I wanted Jon gone once and for all.

Episode 11
Kind of like Cream Cheese / Still Holdin' On

(http://i.imgur.com/cTZ9poD.gif)



So long....

...Reed and Alec. Finally an episode worthy of the Survivor name. It was the perfect storm that coalessed into a fun-filled two hour episode. It's unusual to get a 2 hour episode outside the Finale and the occasional premiere. I'm glad they gave us this one because a lot happened. For starters, I love it when Jeff Probst gets annoyed at "players" and admonishes them on national TV. When the tribe was being "diplomatic" in their way of throwing the challenge so that they could hand it to Missy, the look of contempt on Jeff's face said it all. Why bother even creating challenges if all they are going to do is mock the process. F*ck this tribe. But out of this simple gesture, it created a big fracture when Missy chose Baylor (duh) and Natalie over Jacklyn, which was the opening Reed was looking for. In the end, he couldn't pull off the blindside and now he is gone, which I'm okay with. Don't like him.

Another fascinating thing to watch was of course Jacklyn and Jon's huge fight. Loved it. He's an idiot and doesn't deserve a woman like that. She can do so much better. Very telling to see her flirting with Alec while he was on Exile Island. Even more telling was that she was still flirting with him when he came back. It has nothing to do with "the game". She knows Jon is weak. Getting back to Jacklyn, she is one of the hottest players ever on Survivor and this episode in particular showed her off in grand fashion. Definitely need to get some screencaps and post here. I think I have finally picked someone to cheer on to win it and it's Keith because of the insurmountable odds he would get to the end. Huge underdog and yet he is still around. Natalie also belongs in the Final 2. Know one else belongs in the Top 3. First 5 Star episode this season. It's about damn time!

Let's Make A Move

(http://i.imgur.com/SW1TShG.gif)


So long...

...Jon. Hallelujah! I was dreading the idea of him being in the Final 3. His arrogance knows no bounds and it was on full display at the Tribal Council. Seriously dude, on what planet do you think bragging about your 'Speech' for the Final 3 is going to be a good thing? For all future players of the game, when Jeff ask you "have you thought about your final speech", all you say to him is "Jeff, I have not thought about it. All I'm thinking about is just surviving this vote" and then keep your f*cking mouth close. Missy annoys me. Why there was even a discussion of her not voting for Jon when her own daughter is telling her to do so is just baffling. Well, the 2 hour finale is next Wednesday. I don't think I can wait that long. I wish they would go back to doing the Finale on Sundays like they always did. I'd only have to wait 4 days instead of a whole week. Ack! FYI, Jon is really dumb. He got voted off with a f*cking Hidden Immunity Idol in his pocket! HAHAHAHAHAHA! Loser!

Episode 13
This is My Time

(http://i.imgur.com/cTZ9poD.gif)


And the winner is...


...Natalie.



What a great moment for Survivor and definitely a moment that this season can hang its hat on. The first half of the season was very lackluster because no one was really playing the game, or more to the point, knew how to play the game. But watching Natalie pull off one of the biggest and quite possibly greatest blindsides in the series was......masterful. I loved how it all played out. I love that Natalie turned to Jacklyn and ask her if she voted for who she wanted voted off and got the answer she wanted and promptly gave Jacklyn the Hidden Immunity Idol. I was kinda shocked at first when I saw that it was Baylor that got voted off but then I immediately knew why she had to go. Get her off and leave Missy, with broken foot and all and you have bettered your chances at winning the Immunity Necklace in the final challenge. Missy will never win, so it was a practical move as well as a calculating one.

THIS is why I wanted Natalie to win. She EARNED it with all her big moves that basically dictated the outcome of this season. So, congrats to Natalie on a perfectly played game. As for the Final Tribal Council, I thought that Reed's 'Wicked Stepmother' speech was brutal. I felt incredibly bad for Baylor for having to sit there and listen to someone just verbally bashing her mother and not being able to do anything about it. It was a foregone conclusion that this would have her in tears. With that said, Missy is one of the most undeserving players to ever get to the the Final 3. This has nothing to do with her character. I have issues with the show literally carrying her into the Final 3 spot. Look, players get injured all the time. But when reality interferes with the game, that's where I draw the line. She breaks her foot and still wants to continue on, then great. But when you fit her with a leg cast, that's giving a player an unfair advantage (broken foot and all). She should have been pulled immediately. Overall, a strong finish for what was a lackluster season to start with.

PS, if I were Baylor, I would have gone up to Reed and kick him in the nuts. What did she have to lose? It's not like it would have affected her game or her mother's in any way. As for Keith, really wanted to see him get into the Top 3. He was killing it in the challenges and had he made it, I'm sure he would have won. Not bad for the Oldest player this season.

Episode 14
Live Reunion Show
(http://i.imgur.com/SfhcoSn.gif)



Not sure what the deal is with CBS or Roku. But it took them a week to get the Reunion show up on Roku (whoever is in charge) and when it finally was up for viewing, it was a mere 25 minutes. The Live show was 1 hour in length as it has always been. So, not really sure why so much content was cut out. With commercials removed, the episode is always 44 minutes. Gonna have to check on CBS website and see if they have a longer version.
