After last week’s riveting, suspenseful episode I was thrilled to watch this latest episode of Survivor. And then it started and the episode kept going on and on and nothing really exciting happened, except for Joe finding that idol early in the hour.
There weren’t any surprising twists, there weren’t any shocking alliances being broken, it was just a lot of dialogue and no action. And then when Simone was kicked off it wasn’t a surprise in the slightest. It was, overall, a very underwhelming episode and it’s kind of got me thinking, is this season of Survivor going to be yet another lackluster season? And if so, that’s a real shame.
Survivor is a great show but when it starts relying on older, more experienced and, truthfully, exciting players to be in each of its seasons that’s when the show is going to be in a little bit of trouble. The last season I watched that I really enjoyed that didn’t involve having players like Boston Rob or Ozzy or even the legendary Sandra had to have been, I think it was Season 32. Since then, besides Survivor: Game Changers, the seasons have just been…a little underwhelming. I’m hoping that this was just a boring episode because this is early in the season but if it keeps going at this rate this is going to be a long, boring season of Survivor.
Well, that’s my overview of Survivor this week. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day.
