The show is also A LOT better when they have a guest judge helping them out with things. Not because the guesses are better, but because the intelligence quota jumps substantially!



    Only part of Survivor I got to see was the tribal council - and it seems like the conscious decision was made to keep the crazy chick (Noura??) over the cute chick Molly. But will give them credit, at least they didn't vote off someone who will make a difference in challenges.

    Have one more week of Wednesday night baseball practice, and than it shifts to Thursday, so I will be able to watch again, uninterrupted!
    The episode started with Noura doing a lot of complaining to the point where it annoyed her tribemates which made her an easy vote. A few of the oddballs in the group wanted to take out Molly because she was a strong social player and in the end they had enough votes to send her packing.

    If you play the crazy card, it goes one of two ways -- either you get immediately voted out because you are just annoying and a headache and no one can stand to be around you anymore OR people make a conscious decision to deal with it and take you to the end because no one will ever vote you to win a million bucks!

    Vince got sent home. He went to Island of the Idols to meet with Rob/Sandra - he got his challenge and won an idol. The tribe got totally paranoid and wanted to split the vote to flush out an idol if he had one. Why anyone would use that strategy this early in the game is beyond me. They had a plan and than completely collapsed on themselves because they got crazy thinking about an idol. So they lose the challenge badly because Parishma has no idea how to do puzzles, so she is the clear and easy choice to send home, except wait..clear and easy in Survivor never happens due to crazy and stupid!

    So Vince has an idol, only good for the next two tribal councils - and he doesn't play it...stupid. It is only good for two tribals, you may not even be at the next one, so your idol would be worthless - why not play it and make sure you are safe. Or at least show it and say you are playing it to get votes off of you. The tribe he was in has very little common sense, and that is a kiss of death in this game. Vote out stronger players early so that you get sent back to Tribal Council...great strategy. But we want to keep our core alliance together for the merge...you can't be thinking about the merge 6 days in - you have to think about staying on the island for another 3 days at this point.

    Another week,another blindside. Chelsea gone bye-bye as a possible power couple was broken up. Looks like next week tribes get flipped around. Air Force vet Missy dropped some Survivor knowledge at tribal and I enjoyed her outlook on the game. I think I found a person to root for.

    Not just another blindside - another one where the eliminated had an idol in their pocket. Can't believe they sent Chelsea home - way to keep a weak player around that you know is going to flip on you the second they have a chance - and that is what Pradishma is going to do.

    Totally agree with you on Missy - love that she is out there to play the game and win, and not just coast around as if it is a vacation (which many, many folks do). Not sure if I am ready to proclaim her as my choice, but if she were to win, I wouldn't be disappointed at all. Looks like a tribe swap coming next week - will be interesting how many tribes they go to....2, 3 or 4.

    On a separate note - got through the first season of Stranger Things - very enjoyable, and looking forward to getting to Seasons 2 & 3.

    Saw Zombie Land 2 last night it was crazy fun. Woody Harrelson was his usual great self but Abigail Breslin was the star. Catch it when it starts to stream. Have started to watch The Boys on Prime, super hero's are made not born and more interested in fan rating than good deeds. Just a fun take on hero worship.

    Another fun episode of Survivor.....

    Drop your buffs -- tribe swap time. everything got reshuffled, one tribe was equal at 4-4 and the other 5-3. In the reward challenge, presented by Applebys, Parishma was an anchor costing her team a real chance at winning. Great promo for Applebys. Feeling good in the neighborhood. Did I mention the reward challenge was sponsored by Applebys?

    In the immunity challenge, Parishma literally looked like a beached whale trying to move on the sand as her tribe lost. She can't do puzzles, she can't do anything physical. Clearly the obvious choice to send packing so you don't come back to tribal council again...so....they vote out Tom, a strong competitor and a guy who has no secrets and plays the game in a straight line, no curve balls, no strategy, just there. And let's keep Parishma, the boat anchor who stirs things up. Great call. I truly do wonder if some of the contestants have EVER seen the show before???

    Also, Noura is completely and totally insane - there can be no question about that!

    Was supposed to have the semis (and than hopefully the finals) of baseball playoffs yesterday morning, but rain kept us in limbo prior to even having a chance to leave for the fields... To pass the time, binge watched the last 5 episodes of Stranger Things Season 2. Definitely have enjoyed both seasons so far, but two big takeaways from Season 2...

    1 - when you are running from Dema-gogues, don't stop and celebrate your escape until you are out the door safely!

    2 - the warning disclaimer they run at the beginning of each episode about the strobe effect, totally real - if I watch more than one episode at a time, it creates havoc for me - I am still not 100% right at this point!
