HAVE A NECTARINE, GONK
Starts Thursday (tomorrow) night at 7:30 on 9GO.
Yeah that’s a great element of the US version, they treat all of the contestants really equally in the edit and you’re introduced to everyone pretty much on day 1. I really like that, it sets up the framework and some sort of investment in whoever you want.Not a bad start, but too long, it really dragged in the middle with the challenge going on for an eternity.
But we got to know more people more economically than our version.
The stupid twists are back, including the say something stupid one.
Disappointed with who went home at tribal, I had them pegged as someone to root for.
There are a few I can't stand already.
Mostly lurking, but thought I'd post my link to Survivor USA here. Good contrast to Survivor Aus where I'm rooting for anyone but Mark. Cheers! https://srsone.click/show/survivor This is a great link for all things Big Brother too https://videobrother.net/live-streamYeah that’s a great element of the US version, they treat all of the contestants really equally in the edit and you’re introduced to everyone pretty much on day 1.

Aus Survivor is basically like listening to a record, but not a record of your choosing. You gotta deal with what they give you and if you don’t like it then you are overthinking things, because production is in charge of the narrative so ner ner just watch and see what they did there.
The one aspect I don’t like since S41 & 42 is the very edgy editing style. Too much editing chop chop chop and too little watching people while the fire flickers or the water glistens. It’s lost all of that. Hope they cut that out!
Anything w/Daniel, I dislike grrrrrrrI didn't enjoy that episode much.
It was pretty shoddy, with the bad decisions made by the production team really showing.
Firstly the immunity/reward challenge sees two tribes skip a level because the task was undoable, which is pretty much cheating.
Then there was the clumsiness of the shared idol repeated message/you lose your vote mess.
Worst of all, the new style "talk over each other" tribal council, where no one understands what is going on, and Jeff has to tell them to STFU because he isn't ready to explain yet how the votes disappeared.
Then you have excruciatingly uncharismatic people arguing over who should be sent home.
Which surely reflects my point of the task being 'undoable'.True, I'd rather just see people continue to nearly drown in the water instead of having them *CHEAT* and stay alive.
Pretty sure the challenge was built and tested around much calmer water. The heavy winds made the challenge become undoable. Can’t control nature?Which surely reflects my point of the task being 'undoable'.
I'm not saying they shouldn't have stopped it, only that it was ill-conceived from the start.
