I am so hoping this cast is a good one..the promos look pretty good...we need a real lively cast this season, to keep my interest, and it seems there are some good twists that may do just that!

I'm ready for it - if you watch the promo - there's a Dr., and a retired nurse vying for the title - hope this yr there are not a lot of injuries - maybe that's why we have a Dr and nurse!!

I do hope I remember to watch it, as I'll be with dd and her family. I've not seen my dd since April so we may to busy visiting but I'm going to give it a good try!

There was a NEW thread on here a few minutes ago that I was responding to about Survivor. When I posted my reply it vanished, what happened.

Anyway, the TvGuide channel had a preview on the other night introducing the new contestants and giving us a preview of the new season coming up. It was interesting. There is a mix of characters this year, a lawyer, doctor, boxer, gay, olympic winner, ect. I can't think of all of them.

I'm ready for it to start.

I am ready and I will watch it, if the cast is good, it keep me, if not, I leave. One season, I really disliked the cast, and as I recall many fellow CM's felt the same way, since then, their choices are far less "shallow" and have more depth besides their "bodies" if you get my drift. It looks like it will be interesting, and especially the wildlife!

What a surprising ER show tonight. I was so surprised that they are getting rid of the characters so early in the season. I will miss ER a lot.

Survivor started out good also. That one tribe better get it together or they won't have any members left in a few more tribals.

Yeah - off to a very good start... I see that there will be some interesting twists and turns coming up... I have not yet decided on a favorite, but I have to say the older guy, Randy - do not like him much, or the Michelle girl much either but she could have been a good player.

and awesome on Grey's Anatony and CSI - I was having a hard time watching all these shows last night. Hurray for Thursday nights.

I was so upset over ER, They didn't have to start it off with him dying. Thats how it should end. I've been an avid watcher for years but I'm tired of all of the good character dying.

Default In My Humble Opinon

Hey y'all

Survivor was good...glad to see Michelle the whiner go, was hoping they would have voted off Randy ...sad to see Gillian go was rooting for her (old, gray, grandma, retired nurse just like me Ha-Ha ) The Fang tribe better get some snap and get it together or they will be goners for sure. I really like Bob and Marcus---??? about GC thought he would be good not a quitter (as leader) Thought Dan would do better on Exile at least to find the crater.

Grey's is on DVR will watch it tonight if nothing else to watch???

ER I was shocked it started out with Pratt DYING --- OMG. Not what i expected.

still reeling from IKE in Houston
asking continued prayers for those in desperarte need

RE: Pratt.......the whole time we kept saying "he's not going to die", they can't kill him off this early. I think it will be a very sad season, losing one cast after another. I think Abby & Luka will be soon, she said something about Luka getting a job in Boston. We have to wait two weeks for the next episode!!

Default ER & Survivor watchers

For the ER fans, you better keep a box of kleenex handy, it's going to be one of seasons. Looks like Abby is next to leave, I got a lump in my throat just looking at the previews of next week. I don't think I have EVER missed an episode of ER. I will miss it

Survivor fans, last night was not that "gripping" but I was surprised that they switched tribes so early. Everyone seems to think that Sugar is a ditz, but I think she may be smarter than they think. After all she found the idol. They keep voting off the strong players, what's with that??

I haven't really picked a favorite yet, right now I can't even remember all of their names! Time will tell.

howdy all
omg...the switch up so early in the game...i was shocked they didn't pick bob sooner he is smart, productive, works hard and obviously knows the outdoors.

boy was i surprised to see them vote of Jacque instead of Kelly, the whinner...she was not much of a player mentally or physically.

sugar plays a dumb blonde very well...
i thinks she and ace will gang up against the others on their new tribe.

just mho...
randy was also a surprise to step up so well in the competition...

have a great day

I was also supprized they voted off Jacque, that was a stupid thing to do. I'm wondering if they decided to switch early to keep the teams even. It seems like the last few years one team would always dominate. And I was really surpised that they didn't pick bob earlier.

I was out of the country when Survivor started this year, so I'm having to play catch-up. I really don't have any opinions about the players, yet.

Also, with them switching up the teams, I think it will effect alliances. Some will fractured and new ones will be formed.

I agree, though that Sugar "ain't so dumb!"

The switch up came quite early this season, and I found it ironic how, the once valuable, older jack of all trades man, suddenly became unwanted.. I find this season, so far, very vanilla, the people just don't seem to have any sparks...

Another interesting evening of Survivor - I just can't believe how "dense" the majority of the tribe members are - it will be very interesting when the Fang tribe gets down to 2 or 3 players as that seems to be the way they are going. Not very smart moves being made by the teams.
