Catching up with Survivor:China

We’re watch­ing last night’s Sur­vivor episode. You’ll have to have been watch­ing Sur­vivor to get any of this.

  • The pro­duc­ers lucked out this sea­son, when the down-on-their-luck tribe took out Aaron instead of James with their chop to the head. ‘Cause James is awe­some. Awe­some.
  • The edi­tors need to take a break from the 5‑sec­ond-inter­sti­tial ani­mal-of-the-week strikes-unsus­pect­ing-prey used to punc­tu­ate a play­er back­stab­bing. There are only so many spi­ders killing flies, herons killing fish, or crabs snap­ping what­ev­er it is crabs eat, that I can take.
  • I’ve nev­er liked Court­ney, but with her Zen bar­rel rid­ing per­for­mance tonight, and her very nat­ur­al Jean-Robert as Susan Luc­ci anal­o­gy, I can’t help but warm to her a teen­sy bit. She seemed almost gid­dy with her win.
  • Jean-Robert is clear­ly delu­sion­al. Best play­er in the game? Not by his hairy bum.
  • But not as delu­sion­al as Todd and James and (to a less­er degree, but she should have spo­ken more force­ful­ly) Aman­da… vote off Jean-Robert and you take away one (admit­ted­ly dis­taste­ful) mem­ber of your alliance, while alien­at­ing Denise, and not doing any­thing to bring Court­ney back in… leav­ing them to join the oth­er dis­af­fect­ed to vote you out.
  • Aman­da needs to make a move now. Cap­tain Tod­d’s Ship o’ Dis­func­tion has sprung a seri­ous leak. I’d sug­gest Eric.

Any of you guys actu­al­ly watch­ing this show, or will­ing to admit to it?
