Survivor Samoa: Post Recap Discussion

| November 26, 2009 at 10:23 PM EDT

I have to say that I was disappointed in the Recap episode.  It once again turned into the Russell show and I don’t know why I thought it would be any different.  The highlight for me was watching Erik set the trap for the chicken and Shambo catching it.  That was a proud moment for them and they were so excited.  Of course Russell didn’t let that last long and let them both loose.  I wish we could have seen the expression on Erik’s face when he woke up the next morning and found them gone.  They did throw in some air time for Shambo and I was surprised to see her break down, especially in front of Laura.  I’m sure they have all had their breaking point on the show.

I did love it when they were all eating the papaya in secret and not sharing with the others.  I mean come on, Erik cut down an entire tree.  Where in the world do you hide a tree?  They all appeared to have lost a significant amount of weight and have to be malnourished.  I just hope they are getting enough water.

What did yall think about the show?  Should they just do without the recaps all together?  I don’t think they had much choice since it is a holiday.  Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and next week we are back on track with Episode 11 which looks really good by the previews.


Survivor Samoa: Recap Episode Tonight 8/7C

| November 26, 2009 at 8:00 AM EDT

After you eat your fill of turkey and dressing be sure to tune in tonight for “The First 27 Days” recap episode.  We will see never before seen footage of Russell scheming against everyone after the merge.  Hopefully we will get some insight into some of the players we don’t know very well.  Maybe we can see the emergence of Natalie to the forefront since she is the projected winner this year.  I don’t usually get into these type of shows however I have a feeling this year it is going to be better and different.  Be sure to join in on the discussions right here before and after the program to see what everyone has to say about what goes on and discuss the previews for episode 11.

I am getting off the subject of Survivor just for today so I can tell you all Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, I am a day early but wanted to share some thoughts about this wonderful holiday with all of you.  I feel especially blessed this year.  My family is healthy and happy.  What more could I ask for?  In the last couple of months, I had to watch two separate families bury their children.  One was a precious two year old boy and the other a beautiful 19 year old girl.  I can’t even begin to comprehend how they are going to get through tomorrow and the next month.  I hope you all consider as you are celebrating with family and friends just how short life is and we are not guaranteed the next minute much less the next year.  Those we are with this year may not be around for the next so take it all in and enjoy the moments that make up Thanksgiving.  We all come from different backgrounds and different religious beliefs and maybe no religion at all but we can all come together and give thanks for all the little and big blessings in our life.  Hold your loved ones tighter tomorrow and listen to the stories the older generation has to tell about the holidays they celebrated when they were younger.  Find someone to share your own stories with and for those that have kids, give them a break tomorrow.  Let them run wild and free and eat as much sweets as they want.  It is only one day, you can get them back on track Friday.  :)  Let us all remember Fedup with the loss of her husband and what a difficult day this will be for her.  We miss you girl!  Check in with us sometime.

I will get off my ranting now and you all have a wonderful day tomorrow and eat as much food as you want!  You can diet another day.



Survivor Samoa: Thanksgiving Recap Episode

| November 24, 2009 at 9:41 AM EDT

Press Release:  


In never before seen footage, one castaway reveals a guarded secret and the whole tribe suffers at the hands of Russell in the aftermath of the merge.

Generally I don’t like the recap episode but sometimes it can be entertaining.  Hopefully, this is one of those times.  Instead of making it the Russell show, maybe we can get a look at some of the contestants we know very little about.  Brett has made it pretty far and yet played an insignificant role.  With the exception of the leaked information about being acquainted with Laura, I know nothing about this fellow.  He seems like a nice guy but who knows with the way all the editing has favored Russ. 

Who do yall think discloses a guarded secret?  Is it from the promo when Russ tells Mick he owns an oil company?  And what shenaningans did he come up with after the merge?

Survivor Samoa: The Laura/Brett Factor

| November 22, 2009 at 8:25 PM EDT

It has come to my attention in the last couple of days by missyae that Laura and Brett were acquantainces prior to being on Survivor Samoa.  Apparently they attend the same church in Salem, Oregon.  I have a real problem with this.  It puts a whole new perspective on the game for me because not only did CBS cast both of them but they put them on the same team.  Can you say unfair advantage??  It is also possible that Dave knew both of them previously but this has not been confirmed.  Now I totally understand why Brett and Dave were so ready to pick the stones and help Laura.  I wonder if the other contestants knew about this?  If I were on the show and found out later that they knew each other you can bet that I would be raising all kinds of hell.  The only upside is that neither of them won or even made it to the final 3.  I am not happy with this and hope in future seasons of Survivor we will not see this kind of underhanded bs by the production team.

What is everyone’s opinion on this and do you think it caused Laura and Brett to have an advantage over the other players?
