    S38.E05: It's Like the Worst Cocktail Party Ever

    Better hope Reem isn't reading this. She'll come at you like a wolverine. I was also in the dark about Aurora. I thought Jeff was calling someone O'Rourke during the challenge at first. And there is a Julie and a Julia. Next week maybe they'll add a Juliet!

    S38.E05: It's Like the Worst Cocktail Party Ever

    I was stunned at how easily Aubrey was reeled in. I know that she was feeling desperate for an alliance but that was too easy. And the outpouring of affection at tribal...every player was saying nice things and I was sure that would make her aware enough to pull out the idol. JT level, indeed. Hope she gets back in and redeems herself. Wendy's glee at getting voted out was amusing as was her "I'm lost" wanderings away tribal. How does that happen? Now we just have to watch Reem's head literally explode as she deals with her. Reem is so bitter and hostile. Her reaction to Chris stating the obvious was outrageous. I hope Chris is a light sleeper- I'd be nervous if I was him.

    Man With A Plan

    Sorry that happened to your dad, Cajungirl64. Glad he got his chair to give him a little comfort though. I've heard of the recliner conflict in real life more than once. In had a version of it myself as my husband wanted a reclining couch and most of them look like massive marshmallow sculptures or as if they could swallow pets and small children. We have a reclining couch but we shopped for one that looks like a couch.

    Man With A Plan

    Glad to see this show back. While it can be a little nonsensical I'm willing to roll with it because it makes me laugh here and there. Last night when Swoozie Kurtz was talking about not having peripheral vision then later Stacy Keach had to turn her head to see what was happening next to her made me smile. And Andy's mom skills where just what was needed to get the nurse situation taken care of. Liked the nurse.

    S37:E12 Are You Feeling Lucky?

    Isn't this the truth! I felt compelled at least twice to tell Mike aloud that he isn't good at this game. But he continues to think that he is.

    S37:E12 Are You Feeling Lucky?

    Davie's instincts are strong in this game. He is definitely being seen now - no more under the radar so I hope he can keep winning challenges and making the right moves. Couldn't predict this vote- I could barely keep track of who was planning to vote for who and it almost seems like the players were having the same problem. Goodbye Christian (aka twitchy Mark Hamill)...you and your overly verbose commentary will be missed.

    S37:E11 So Smart They're Dumb

    I think these big moves, voting out Carl and attempting to vote out Christian, just came a couple of weeks too soon. Everyone is playing so hard they've gotten too eager to keep their perspective. Gabby's stated motivation was that she could see that how Christian was comforting and reassuring with his girlfriend is how he was with her and that is what made her want to make this move. Was that jealousy? Or a moment of self realization? And not liking what she saw she immediately wanted to change others perception of her. So much so she took the controls and banked so hard to the left she crashed and burned. Taking a deep breath and working on deepening her alliance with Alison, Davie, etc independently for a few more days before making the move against Christian would have been wiser, but the emotional reaction still won out with her. Another emotional player is Nick. He was all over the place tonight. I thought he might pass out during the family visit and that was before his dad made it out! And his bitterness toward Christian was totally understandable but hope he can get a game plan together. I like Nick more as the game has developed. Really would like to see Davie go far. I think his feeling that he needs Christian as a shield actually has some validity- he's playing an under the radar game because Carl, Gabby and Christian have been so obvious and have kept the Goliath's attention. Now he's down to Christian who fills that role; coupled with his sense of loyalty I can see why he didn't want him to go. As much as the tribes are over and there has been blending it is still on enough people's consciousness that Davie would come to the forefront. But he's going to have to step up sooner rather than later as we're getting to the end.

    S37:E08 You Get What You Give

    What a lot of twists and turns this episode took! Loved all the planning that had to go on and how many of these players seem to be able to control their mouths and not tell about their idols or try brag less than cryptically about where their vote is going. Well played. Bye John; we were as blindsided as you. I was distracted though several times by Christian's eyes. I was wondering if he had some sort of eye infection but finally decided he's just incredibly sensitive to the sun. Every shot in the full sun looked painful. Speaking of eyes... coming back from one of the commercials I was admiring, as often do during Survivor, the beautiful arial shot of the island and then there was a close-up of a dead fish on the beach, sans eyes. Yikes. More crabs, birds and snakes with eyes please. I'd much rather watch the stick tricks of Davey on the rocks. That was funny. Way to keep your cool and create a distraction at the same time.

    S37.E04 Time to Bring Out the Charmpocalypse

    The people on Natalie's new team have some amazing self control. As soon as she started assigning jobs I would have come back with "And what will you be doing?" The answer is obviously nothing but micromanaging. That fire scene was excruciating. I know she has employees she manages/harangues but PLEASE tell me that she doesn't have children or a pet. Then there was Natalia. Vote the way I tell you and then shut up. As soon as Kara and Elizabeth started talking about horses you could just see her hostility. Alec was not thinking clearly (I mean this was not Natalie level bossiness) but she made it really easy for him to be swayed. Was not sorry to see her go. And this is how the Davids just might find their chance. Hopefully Gabby can pull it together both for her and Christian's sake. That amount of anxiety is exhausting. After the challenge maybe she felt she could talk to the 'cool kids'. Interesting to hear John talk about his social anxiety and relating to Christian.

    S37.E02 The Chicken Has Flown the Coop

    I'm okay with them giving them the fire starting kit. It was getting old watching them sitting wet and miserable staring with blank eyes while people began to shiver uncontrollably. The tarp should have been a reward but as I've never sat outside through a cyclone it seems like a small comfort in those circumstances. Natalie is one hard headed, delusional person. If someone comes to you and tells you how other people perceive you, you at least listen. Especially in Survivor where perception is the reality. All I can see when I see Christian is a twitchy Mark Hamill. Goodbye Jessica. Barely knew you but it was a pleasure watching your self assured expression leave your face. You've known these people less than a week; it is unwise to presume so much.

    S02.E21: Target

    We spend the show making comments on how amazing each and every move by Agent Hannah Wells is (you must use the full title, although it must now be Agent Hannah Wells, Swiss Army Knife). Toward the end of this episode she had a touching line about how alone she felt and my husband and I both burst into laughter because, of course she's lonely, everyone in close contact with Agent Hannah Wells, Swiss Army Knife dies. As ridiculous as the show became we will miss it. Maybe Chuck could get a spin-off where he is allowed out of the basement and to have human contact with more than one other character on the show at once.

    S36.E12: A Giant Game of Bumper Cars

    I missed that. Thought loopy Sebastian would have stayed in charge of it. That explains why Wendell jumped on, never missing an advantage opportunity.

    S36.E12: A Giant Game of Bumper Cars

    It would have been a much better move if Wendell and Dom had convinced Sebastian to send Laurel to Ghost Island. It would have cemented their bond with her as she keeps their idol secrets. Might have taken some quick talking to get Sebastian to agree but pretty sure they could sway him. And wouldn't be quite so in your face to the others left behind. Even though I'm sure Wendell knew where Don and Laurel's votes were supposed to go the possibility that they flipped and all that double talk would have sent me grabbing my idol. I really didn't want to see Wendell go but would have totally understood if Laurel and Don made that choice. But Laurel aligning with Kellyn after her double vote last tribal and the lack of trust with any of them would be tough.

    Homespun Marketing: Local Commercials

    Guess not. If you watch it.until the end you will see these other two women with big 80s hair. Please let me assure everyone that this commercial does not represent KC hairstyles. And I hope not the status of our legal representation.

    S04.E19: Thin Ice

    Memo to all McCords who are not Elizabeth. Stay home, do not travel the world. Your very presence causes explosions and no one wants that. Don't even know what to say about the Jason and Piper debacle. I guess we could give them style points. But his attitude after getting home was awful- perfectly willing to throw Piper completely under the bus and then using the argument that if they'd been where they said they'd be they might have died. He has become more of a petulant, conniving brat lately. This kid needs some perspective. And Henry actually doing his job of teaching was so refreshing. Him having a realistic job adds balance got the show and their family. Sadly, this fight over the Arctic is really happening right now and not some made up plot.
