Last week's Survivor Update

I only just got around to watching the tape of last week's Survivor. There are SPOILERS in the "Continue reading..." link.

I really have only two comments.

1. It's SO ironic that they've twice refused to vote off Osten because they wanted to keep his strength, and yet his lack thereof sunk them in the Reward Challenge.

2. The "kidnap a member of the other tribe" thing is a really interesting development. It could easily weaken OR strengthen Rupert. It'll be really interesting to see how it plays out.

BTW it was odd the way they included the "kidnap a member of the other tribe" thing as add-on to the immunity challenge. I wonder if, knowing that Drake was thinking of taking a dive on the immunity challenge, Probst was instructed to reveal, and include, the add-on only if Drake was obvously tanking, as a sort of punshment for doing it?

3. Once again I think they're editing things in a weird way. I think there must be interactions among the Drakes that we're not seeing. That must be what is making them behave so weird. I mean, why get rid of Burton? I think we don't have all the info.

3a. And what's the story with the weirdo Jon? Are the editors exagerating his looniness? Are they not bothering to vote him out now cause he's an easy target for later when things are tougher?

I guess that was more than 2 things.

I watch Survivor when I WANT, and not at the whim of network TV too.

I feel so happy about that.

TiVo is so great. I really miss it when we watch on a TiVo-less TV.

I like how thay made a big deal about Rupert sewing his own skirt at hte beginning of the episode, and then during the episode he was wearing his OLD skirt.

If you were in my den you would have seen me yelling, "continuity! hello!"
