The best looking season yet with HD video and widescreen aspect-ratio. The Dummiest tribe yet in all the seasons, I've not seen more dummer tribe yet with 3 mom's and the first out is the strongest in the tribe!
One wouldn't want to be at the MOM T
It is hard to get better season than the last one. With Fans and Favorites, all those blindsights, it was fun to watch. Survivor Cabon in other hand is the best looking survivor yet. With nice HD quality video and widescreen aspect-ratio. One can now really admire the beauty of the wild. The landscapes in Survivor Cabon, which subtitle is earth's last eden is spectacular. It is very clear after the first screen, that the land hasn't been touched much. And in this globalized world, those places are hard to find.
Although Cabon is one beautiful place. I can only wonder where they found the people to the other tribe, the MOM tribe.. When Jeff gives you privilege to choose any gender, which doesn't happen often and the other tribe chooses only middle age women or elderly at first.. I could only laugh and then they vote their strongest out. Bunch of idiots. It is quite obvious how the start of the season will turn out, when tribes are like night and day!
But anyway the survivor is the best, can't wait for the next episode! =)
Richard, Tina, Ethan, Vecepia, Brian, Jenna, Sandra, Amber, Chris and Tom are all millionaires thanks to a little show called Survivor. This is their story, along with many other colorful characters that made this show the success that it is.
In the Summer of 2000, America witnessed a bold and daring leap into the new era of television. \"Survivor\" is the show that lead the way, not only did it lead the way but it also demanded the attention of the viewing audience by captivating viewers with real people in a real situation.
Now five years, ten seasons, and one-hundred and fifty castaways later, \"Survivor\" still remains one of the most watched shows in primetime. Such tenure of the reality genre certainly requires a minimal respect among it\'s critics.
It was once good but now it just deserves to be canceled or something because each new season is worse than the one before, WHY BOTHER???!!! This new series 'Survivor: China' you already know it's going to suck, we can just tell.
THe show was good up until Panama: Exile island, that was the last good one, the ones after that were stupid, silly, dull and boring, so was Guatamala. I mean what is this show a joke? What is wrong with the producers? Where has the old Survivor gone to? Timbuktoo...??? There were only a couple of seasons I enjoyed anyway: Marquesas, Pearl Islands, Vanuatu and Palau. The rest were a load of rubbish, silly, stupid and boring. So long Survivor, namaste and baaaaaaaaaaaaadddddddddddd luck............... Hahahahaha. Seriously, It makes me upset watching shows that were really good and then be thrown in the fire like a piece of trash! I already wrote a review like this on 'American Idol' this is exactly the same.
I am a huge Survivor fan. However, it would be nice to see some different challenges and the puzzel are so getting old too. Change it up! So many more things they could do to make it fun and interesting. I think they should do away with the immunity idols. Also I think in a Survivor situation you have to be smart as well as strong. Make them use their Brains, Let's see who has the knowledge to Survive.
This show, IMO, has to be the greatest psychological & sociological show in history. It is so interesting to me to watch how the "pack" will turn on the weakest, yet as individuals, they will team up to turn on the strongest. If I were not a believer in Creationism & Intelligent Design, I would say that Darwin looked in to the future and saw Survivor.
I get a laugh out of this show every week. It has shown all ends of the spectrum such as "nice guys finish last" to "what goes around comes around" to "wow, being a good guy CAN actually get you somewhere"
I love the show, plain and simple. It is a family tradition on Thursday evenings to go to Subway for dinner, bring it home, sit in front of the TV and watch Survivor. Could I go out there and do it? Are you kidding? I can't go 1 day without deoderant...even for $1M!
I think it would be a great show with twins on opposing teams to start and see how many stay for the merge to reunite. Not all twins are identical and have different values. Having them play against each other could be interesting. Bringing back past contestants is getting a little old.
Survivor is definitely one of my favorite reality shows of all time. Every season is completely different to one another. The challenges, contestants and twists are different every season. Jeff Probst is always going to be (IMO) the best host on tv! Every year I always look forward to watching two seasons of Survivor, one in the fall and one in the spring!
By now we all know what survivor is and how it is played, so I won't go down that road. The survivors that were cast this season, so far, have been realitivly interesting with decent back stories. The tribes that were picked at first were way off balanced and one just blew the big one worse than any other Survivor tribe in Survivor history so we already have seen a tribal "mixup" or tribe change. This happened realatively early compared to previous seasons. But I think it was nessecery to preserve the competitive integrity of the game. It isn't too fun to watch one tribe dominate all season long to the merge, like the season that the one tribe lost EVERY single immunity challenge, although I did find it fairly funny. The season is young, so I really can't comment on how I think it will go other than it has been really good so far with the Survivor guru's mixing up the tribes so we don't see the same tribe dominating, which was a very smart move in my opinion. I do wish that Survivor would go back to the one hint a week deal on Exile Island. It really blows seeing the first, second, or third survivor sent there finding the idol quickly. Also maybe they need to go back to using only one idol a season. I don't like that it gets replaced if it isn't used by the Survivor that has it (obviously the idiot didn't use it if the get voted off if they have the idol). But that is a minor complaint. Overall Survivor is an old favorite that I hope never goes away, hopefully it can last as long as the Real World has (and I think it has a good chance). The Survivor producers always do a fairly good job of casting and make sure there is a great mix of personalities and people which makes the show or makes the show a bust without a good mix of casting. Although this is probably impractical because Survivor "survives" based off of skin (by that I mean very pretty ladies, and good looking men) I would like to see a cold weather season. Although because the survivors would be bundled up I don't think that is practical because of the ratings plunge it would take because some folks tune in to Survivor based off of who is on there and what they look like. Pyscolgoigally we are not going to tune into a show if the cast members are bundled up and we can not tell if they look good to our brains or not. Overall this season has been great through 3 episodes and looks to be another successful Survivor season! I definately will be tuning in every Thursday night as a loyal Survivor watcher.
Survivor has been on for 5 years now. It has deffinetly changes. After going to 9 locations, the seasons just keep getting more and more interesting. Survivor is a show that even though most people say its fake, we all know its entertaining and real!
Survivor(or Survivor: Borneo, Pulau Tiga) premeired in May 2000. After a huge success it went on to The Australian Outback. It was known as the best season ever! Survivor Africa came on and even though not the biggest sucess, still good. Survivor: Marqueses didnt have the best season, but once again, good! Survivor: Thailand was very good at all. It had some interesting things though. Survivor: Amazon had some great people and pretty good moments. Survivor Pearl Islands boosted up Survivor. IT was an amazing season, and showed us an outcast twist. It was then time to bring in the All-Stars. We got to see our favorites battle off and in the end, we had a new engaged reality couple, who ended up running an amazing race. Survivor Vanuatu wasnt the best either, it kinda brought the Survivor season to a new low. It made up for an interesting Survivor Palau!
So as you see, Survivor has went through alot. It is a great show that brings us entertainment. We see 16,18, 20 people on an island trying to compete. People need to believe this isnt fake, it is totally real. Yes, weve had some dumb seasons, but think of all the good season. Its renewed up to Season 12 and Survivor: Guatemala "The Mayan Empire" will be coming this September for its 11th season. How far will Survivor go? Who knows! It will be nice if its on for a few more seasons. We can only wait and find out. If you havent seen Survivor, its not too late. Try it, and maybe you can buy the 3 season DVDs out right now! HAVE FUN!
I love survivor! Although not all seasons are good. In recent seasons they have had a poor selection of contestants which either have dull personalities, or only want to win. The best survivor seasons are the ones with controversy and the last two seasons has lacked that a lot! No effective use of hidden immunity idols as they have been introduced too early into the season's and too easy to find (they can put them in water, you know!).
I rated it 8.5 out of 10 because I believe the show is awesome with a perfect host! But they should be better in their choices for contestants.
Survivor is the show that all other reality shows are trying to imitate.
Mark Burnett came up with the idea of putting people on an island and having the vote one another off until only one is left. His idea has been stolen, borrowed, twisted and ripped off. Survivor really is the show that all other reality shows are trying to imitate.
What makes Survivor great is their willingness and ability to tweak the formula of the game so every series of the show is different. The changes are not always big, but there are always a few surprises for both viewers and contestants.
The locations change but it is the strategizing that we love to see. I always enjoy the fact that pre-game favorites mean nothing. Sometimes a player who appears most capable is first or second out and sometimes those who I’m sure are going early are around to the end.
I don't watch reality shows and this plot is done so much better on Lost which has drama and characters I care about not stupid people paid to act like idiots seriously if I wanted to watch this crap I would watch American Idol which I also hate
Well I'd say my summary sums up what I think of this and other reality shows they are pure trash and I wish people would wise up and stop watching them. I don't care for reality I'd rather lose myself in a fantasy world populated by demons, spies, vampires, vampire spies, vampire cops, lol umm you get the idea. People need to watch more drama and less reality yes I know due to the strike there's little on these days but that's the beauty of movies you don't have to watch reality tv pop a movie in and flip your tv to a black screen. Or you could always *horrors* read something. Or catch up on old shows this can be done alot easier if you have cable as they rerun things all the time. Just try to stay away from mindless garbage like this and American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Big Brother, The Amazing Race, and any other reality/game shows out there the only one that really makes you think are the quiz shows like Jeopardy
Actually I havent watched it much since Series 3 because eventually it was like, I really dont care who wins - they are all a bunch of self centered egotistical sociopaths who lie, cheat and screw you over . Though I still couldnt help laughing when I found out one the new contestants was named Candace Wooodcock - a woman with a name like that has to be tough as nails.
If they want me back there would have to be risk of death! Add events like actual Shark Jumping, Stringray Wrestling, Polar Bear hunt, fight the Smoke Monster, successfully raid the Others Camp and bring back the head of Ben! Oh wait, wrong show. LOL!
I used to watch this show religiously. After watching the person who allied with a dominant teammate fly under the radar and win almost every time I lost interest. Several times the winner was not the person who outwitted and outplayed the others. Instead it was the person who made an alliance with the person who outplayed and outwitted the others. The person who did all the "playing" of the game usually got second. An example of this is Rob and Amber. NOBODY before in the game of Survivor had come close to playing as well as Rob(whether you like him or not) did, yet Amber still won. Again and Again this happened, because the people who are in the jury are not judging based on who has "outwitted", "outplayed" and "outlasted" the others. They are judging based on "who hurt their feelings" which should be saved for an appointment with "Dr Phil" and not used as a factor to determine who played the game better them. Anyway, this being said I do not know why this show still has so many faithful viewers?
This has got to be the WORST Survivor ever!! We have been watching since the beginning but we've had ENOUGH due to Colton. He is the most OBNOXIOUS person! He seems to get way too much air time. We will not be watching anymore episodes this season.
survivor is the worst reality show ever. im writing this review because im terribly sick of it being on tv. whenever they annouced that they would divide the teams up by race. i was furious. how desperate did they have to be for ratings that they would make a stupid move like that. survivor was decent in its first season, but its going downhill really fast. they have completly ran out of ideas for this sad and sorry show that they have to rely on stupid ideas. im begging everybody to not tune in to the next season so we can get this horrid show off the air.
I really like survivor, but i'm afraid that always going back to the Pacific Islands is just going to make the show tired. I mean, lately they have been bringing back past contestants and they are filming at the Philipines again! But it still watchable and it's still a great show
Well I think this sesaon is turning out to be just like the past sesaon where that team also lost over and over again. When is that tribe ever gonna win? I think if they ever do win they should get the got camp. And another thing, what kind of Survivor is this? They give one camp all these luxaries, no wonder they are winning challenge after challenge. Next week it shows that they are gonna mix the tribes up, but the aliances have already been formed, therefore it is not gonna do anything if you ask me. I think they need to put everyone in a camp with nothing! That is survivor.
the first reality game show ever, it's still the best and nothing comes closer to this. mark burnett's creation is now a classic. ever since the first season, this show continues to entertain me. watching this again and again really makes my day. i watch it with my mates and we all have a very good time with it. i can't recommend this show enough, it's so good. i can't get enough of it. jeff is a very good host, did i say handsome, he is the best. i love jeff. each week is so much fun, i just love this show so much.
I had kind of lost interest in "Survivor" during some of its last few seasons. Guatemala and Exile Island were pretty good, but the Cook Islands season completely sucked me in. From the very beginning, I wanted Yul, Becky, Ozzy, and Sundra to do well (and I was happy to see the four of them come together in the latter half of the game), and after Jonathan and Candice mutinied to Raro, I was all about the Aitu Four. Ozzy dominated in every challenge and due to that, the Aitu Four was able to chip away at Raro, which at one time had twice the amount of members as Aitu. Yul and Ozzy are so easy to root for; you just want to see them do well. Sundra and Becky, too--I love rooting for an underdog, and these four were certainly underdogs while Raro had the numbers. Ingenious season--it also had a villain who was easy to dislike--Jonathan. And Candice wasn't all that likeable following the mutiny, either. And I just found Nate and Adam annoying. For me, Parvati was the most likeable from the Raro tribe. So happy to see that the Aitu Four also made up the final four. Yes, the fire-building challenge was embarrassing and painful to watch, but I still love Sundra and Becky. For the first time, the person I wanted to win (Yul) actually won! Both he and Ozzy deserved it. Becky and Sundra, probably, too--according to Yul, they were instrumental in making decisions and they all made strategic decisions as a group. Not that they got credit for it. After that Tribal Council, they will probably forever be known as the two girls on "Survivor" who struggled to build fire with matches.
Survivor is one of my all-time favorite shows which I have watched since the first season. Mark Burnett is a genius as he has created many of my favorite shows, survivor is no exception. Even now into its twelfth season they are still finding ways to shake up the game, and keep the survivors on their toes. This is one of the best shows on TV in my opinion, and I can only hope that this show goes on for years to come. So we can continue to see who outwits, outlasts, and outplays their island mates for the million dollar prize.
While I am a big fan of the show, I must admit the current season is a little lackluster. Most of it seems to fit into the categories of dull and boring. Supposedly; they were going to spice things up with "Exile Island."
When they send tribe members to "Exile Island" we don't get to see enough of it. While the challenges may be tougher and more physical, it seems that most of the rewards are tasteless at best. I think for a future season they need new twists. One Idea would be a change of locale. How about getting out of the jungle and into a location such as the Pacific Northwest? Even though I believe it to be one of the best reality shows out there, I would have to give this season only 2 out of five stars.
