Default Survivor-Fall 2007 (remember the spoiler)

Next week the new Survivor China begins. I hope that fans will come to this thread to discuss the shows. Remember, if you post anything on the same night as a telecast show, head it up with a SPOILER note so you won't give anything away to someone who has not yet watched.

Look forward to meeting all of you here next week

Spoiler Alert

This has just been released:

Burnett Productions has shut down the show and returned to the United States because the production crew has been poisoned with Chinese lead paint that was used in construction of the sets, challenges and immunity idol.

The contestants have been left on their own without food, water or shelter. They will check back in 34 days and whoever is left will be crowned the winner.

Take care,
Mike(BTW: This is a joke)

Shouldn't be a problem. There is lots of recalled dog food laying around.

Great "spoiler", Mike.


I'll be here to discuss Survivor, Blue Skies. As a West Coaster, I'll likely be checking in on Fridays with thoughts and join in the discussion.

Looking forward to a new season.

Most of us would not post right after seeing the show if we see it in an earlier time zone, but it does happen. That is why I said to post a spoiler notice at the top when you post the same night. Your best bet is to wait and read the threads after you have seen the show.

That was a great "spoiler" by the way. Look forward to seeing the posts here next week.

Thats what I said on the other thread, what you just wrote about them having the sense not to read if they didnt want to know....or putting spoiler.

Have you checked with the mods as they were definite about not posting about the show at all until the west coast saw it. Many nights, if the show was on from 8 to 9 pm here, that would have been past 10 pm and then I was afraid to post that night anyway after the mods weigned in.

Make sure this is ok with the mods?

I have not checked, but I am sure that they will kick in here soon if they object to it

Thanks for the reminder, I think a might have forgotten it was beginning tonight.

I hope it is a good season. For some reason the last season didn't really keep my attention.

I already have my tivo set to record with a season pass. TV Guide Channel had a hour long preview the other night. What a mix of characters they have this year, chicken farmer, female wrestler just to name two. The tribal council area is fantastic. It has tons of steel, concrete and tiles. After the show is over with the whole structure will be torn down. Anyway, it looks to be a good show this year. I'm ready. For any Boston Legal fans, new season starts tonight, I think.

I missed the darn preview; I will have to go online and see who's who.

Boston Legal: yep a fan, but I seem to never catch it...

ha - what a bunch of "interesting" folks - did anyone else notice Jeff's body language at the end; doesn't seem he was happy with the vote - He was probably thinking - darn there goes the ratings.

and to have to play in their scivvies, what a hoot!

Spoiler alert
I was glad they gave them tennis for the challenge cause you can't run a course like that in heels. The Chicken Farmer got kicked because he wouldn't give them any input and because he thought the others were silly kids. But already their are people who think that are "Leaders" and in control of the game. They will be the first ones voted off.

I can't even stand to watch her; she has attitude just for the sake of having attitude and I know it isn't a "New York" thing, as I have met plenty of nice people from NYC. One more eyeroll out of that one

I was sad that her tribe won Immunity I don't like her either. She thinks her you know what don't stink. However, if she sticks around her haircolor will grow out and that could be fun.

My pointing out she was from NY, was not to infer anything bad. Since I don't know her name, and she made a point of saying she was a New Yorker, it was just for reference sake. I too know many NY'ers who would wince at the connection....

Trip I knew you were just making the reference to let us know what girl you were speaking about; we all here know you wouldn't bash anyone from New Yawk I agree New Yorkers are probably cringing!

Two things struck me from that first episode...

I was shocked at the start when the contestants all had luggage, but not as shocked as they were when told to leave it behind ...that they would be playing in the clothes they were wearing. Have none of them seen the show before? Most times they are shoved off a boat in what they have on. Think they could have dressed appropriately for the day? I realize the contestants are in country several days before starting the competition and may not have been told it was starting that day. However if it were me, I would have dressed as though the game were starting each and every day -- for a week if I had to. They always try to trip contestants up...you gotta be on your toes.


The other thing was that the editing was out of sequence. I know it often is a bit, but one glaring thing I noticed was that there were people walking around camp early on wearing tennis shoes (example: the wrestler had appeared to have exchanged those big boots for tennies). This was before they went to the first challenge and Jeff made a point of telling them they'd been given their running shoes and they could take them back to camp with them. I was disappointed by Mark Burnett on that one. He's usually a little more careful in the continuity.


Anyway, I agree that this should be an interesting season. There are some characters in the cast.

Looking forward to Thursday night...

So far, there has just been the first one, wasn't sure if I'd like it, but I did and will continue to catch it. Seems a lot of interesting characters, which makes the show so good.
