  • The twenty-fifth season begins with three tribes, a few new faces and three old ones (and one familiar one).

    There have been better season premiere episodes of "Survivor". However this one wasn't bad, it was just average. Like many fans I heard in advance that three people who had to leave the game for medical reasons were going to participate this season. I was concerned that piece of trash Colton (Since I can't use the word I want to use to describe him due to protocol, I will be nice.) would be participating. I was very relieved to learn that was not the case. This episode focused primarily on the returning players (Hence the title of the episode.). Seeing how passionate Russell, Mike and Jonathan are about playing the game was a highlight of this episode. I was disappointed in the fact that the ending was quite predictable. Zane was the only person who did not know he was going to be voted out. He did it to himself with that stupid tirade he went on after his tribe lost the challenge. "Survivor: Philippenes" did not get off to a great start, just a good one.
  • Not the best start...No fascinating figure...

    Dunno if it was just me, however the gap between the end of the 24th season and the beginning of the 25th one was a bit high...

    This first episode hasn't left too big of an impression on me with the exception of the 3 tribes concept...This will make the game more interesting...

    From the old players who were asked to came back the one that seemed the most prepared was Michael Skupin...Okay he seems a bit clumsy but he didn't made a bad impression on the first day...

    Out of the new players RC seemed okay, a bit cut-throat and has an evil eye...

    This doesn't mean I am underestimating the others, just that these two caught my fancy.

    For the next episode, I'd like to see how Russell Swan and Jonathan will be doing, as both seem on he outs...

    My favorite tribe is Tandang Tribe as the players are more aware and motivated.
  • Interesting start! (spoilers ahead)

    The new season of Survivor already looks promising, and I believe there is a good tchance that this one could be the best once since HvV. With three tribes, the dynamics will be a lot mosre interesting post-merge or a fter a swap.

    RIght off the bat, I like Kalabaw and Matsing. Tandang is my least favourite, although I like Abi-Maria and Lisa. I don't like that tribe just because of RC. She seems completely up herself to the point where it is ridiculous. That's just my first impression - I hope it will change.

    Anyway, the outcome of the challenge was clear before it even statred with Russell being a dictator. But when Zane asked everyone to voe him off, it was an interesting ploy for a blindside, although one should never volunteer to go home - it's too easy of an excuse to give people.

    Anyway, it's shaping up to be pretty interesting, and I can't wait for Episode 2!
