  1. Today
  2. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    Well, you could argue that finding the idol is outwitting and outplaying, as everyone knows they're there.
  3. Yesterday
  4. General Drama

    To quote the actor playing Samwell Tarly on GoT: On a show with free thinking, humanoid murderous robots, *that* is what you have trouble believing? (the above said with humor, of course)
  5. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    I think at this point, yes. However, it is unlikely to be dumped any time soon because of the drama it creates.
  6. Outwit, outplay... or just find the most hidden idols in your season? Doesn't a perpetual idol in play defeat the outwit and outplay point of the game?
  7. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    Assuming Season 40 is an all-returnee season, I would love if they had no idols. Instead, they hid a message at each beach telling the person that found it that there were no idols this season. That's the only way they find out. No other twists there either.
  8. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    I actually find that the whole hidden immunity idol concept has been rather played out. I wouldn't mind if it just disappeared.
  9. General Drama

    Just finished watching season 1. The special features on the DVD's were interesting, and it was informative to hear the producers talking about the concepts and meanings behind the episodes. I'm still not buying that The Man in Black is an older version of William. They don't even look alike to me.
  10. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    There is a reason. In theory, it ensures trust with another person. But, when everyone shares and does it rather indiscriminately, it loses all meaning. It worked to Ben's benefit because no one took the time to think that he might have an idol because he didn't go around telling everyone like the rest of the tribe.
  11. Last week
  12. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    I'm so over these people sharing with Absolutely Everyone Else that they have idols.
  13. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    Even wearing that yellowish shirt that probably stinks to high heaven? I can almost smell that right through my TV. I think what he did was very reckless, since Lauren was expecting him to give the other half back in good faith. He didn't know she would be voted out, so he was making her into an enemy when he didn't need to. Now she's an enemy on the jury, but maybe some of the other jury members liked that, if he makes it that far.
  14. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    Even when the camera is on him, he's invisible.
  15. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    I thought Mike only had half the idol. If he was intent on voting Lauren out and only had half, that half was useless anyway.
  16. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    I was confused, until I remembered it was Doc Dumbass. Ugh, I hope he doesn't win.
  17. A Shocking Moment or Ridiculous Waste?

    Nothing will ever top the FLING that Probst did.
  18. Let's try this again when I'm not hopped up on cough meds. I've seen a variety of reactions online to the moment DrMike threw Lauren's immunity shell into the fire. What was your immediate reaction?
  19. I don't think so. Lauren put the advantage into play a couple of weeks ago when she put the slip of paper into the urn instead of voting. Doing so meant she didn't vote that night, and reserved her now "extra" vote to use later. I don't recall anything in there about that extra vote being transferable, and she had nothing left to leave back at camp or hand over to Mike. She'd already put the piece of paper into play.
  20. CBS has the cast up for the next season. It's the usual assortment of relative/dating/coworkers/some weird combination.
  21. Well, I'm going to need one of those charts like they have in the upper corner of figure skating to track who has what advantage.....because I'm clearly the epitome of SLOWOLD when it comes to Survivor! Thanks for the background.
  22. There have been some recent council whispering sessions lately. Probst was totally ignored, which was hilarious.
  23. He found it a couple episodes ago on one of his trips down from the mountain. We saw it.
  24. Wait, did Survivor just NOT spoil something for us by not airing the footage of Ben finding an actual immunity idol? First Probst gets a hug from a family member and then editing resisted the urge to reveal the idol discovery. Wow, really didn't think they had it in them. Speaking of firsts, I have admittedly missed several of the recent seasons, but has there ever been a caucus during tribal council? Because that was awesome. Unless someone can draw it out on a whiteboard for me (SLOWOLD!), we really have no actual alliances remaining, right? Dr. Mike should get Lauren's extra vote, considering she bequeathed it to him prior to being voted out, no?
  25. Me too! It really is a great cast.
  26. Survivor 35: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

    I am loving this season!
  27. Leaving with an advantage that you never used, plus an immunity idol, that you also didn't use is close to setting a Survivor record. She was so sure she was safe, too. I loved it when Dr. Mike threw half of her idol into the fire. That's when you know it's really not your day.
