    Survivor 35: "Heroes vs. Heroes vs. Hustlers"

    So this season's actually gotten a lot better! Haven't been around here because I didn't watch for a couple weeks after the premiere and the thread was inactive during that very first week, but I caught up around episode 5 and have been digging it ever since. Awful premiere and pretty weak merge episode but I think every other episode has been solid - not great, but solid, with a strong cast. I loved the twist they did with the Reward in the last episode and think Ben/Joe's content was excellent, Chrissy is a better and more interesting character the more nuanced her edit gets too imo and Cole is a pretty good one too. I'm liking the characterization this season. JP and Mike are good for laughs too and Devon has his moments.

    Some kind of fun stuff with Alan though even that felt rushed. Other than that really lackluster premiere. Theme is cringey, Super Idol that went nowhere, and absolutely zero justification for or development of the first boot.

    Hahaha wow Freudian slip. Totally 100% unintentional but I'm tempted to just leave it. They picked the cast before the theme. Probst previously said that they always do that so we could have assumed they probably did but he has also specifically confirmed in pre-game press for this season that they did it here.
  4. Typing that thread title would make me ashamed to be a Survivor fan, if I still considered myself a fan of the mediocrity this franchise puts out. What even is this theme. Last season was unbearably pointless and boring so here's hoping this cast can bring some life back into this show. Roark <3
  5. That Sansa's rape was apparent weeks ago doesn't make it any less awful and absurd. I don't even have any words anymore.

    How would you rate episode 410?

    It's been about ten months by now, and I'm still raging over that Tyrion scene.

    A good way to put it. Show-only people are probably freaking out right now. But that Tyrion/Tywin confrontation was.... so underwhelming and so rushed. It was the one thing I was certain they would nail, because it involves King's Landing and all their favorites. But instead... what was that?

    No Tysha? What the fuck? lol.

    How would you rate episode 408?

    Probably gonna give it a 9/10 (keeping with my "Blackwater is so far above everything else that I can't give anything else the same score as it" thing.)

    You pity me for having a different opinion than you do about an episode of television show..?

    How would you rate episode 407?

    Generally a really good episode, but I'm upset enough about how much they inexplicably watered down the Eyrie scene that for now I'm giving it a 3. Maybe I'll get over it in the next week, but I doubt it.

    I don't really mind the "Only Cat" -> "Your sister" change... but I was still really disappointed by that scene. It was so much more rushed compared to the books. We didn't get nearly as much of a freakout by Lysa, and that's what makes the scene so good in the books: You really think Lysa's about to murder Sansa, and then she's breaking down to Petyr. And then he calms her down, and the mood of the chapter starts to get less and less tense... and then it drops the bomb.

    How would you rate episode 406?

    The incredibly elusive 9/10. The only reason it doesn't get a 10/10 is because it wasn't Blackwater. It was essentially a 10/10.
