So wow, can't wait to post my full recap! In a nutshell, I'm super-excited to see how this season unfolds, and how Redemption Island ends up panning out. We don't get to know really until Episode 3 who leaves the show, and I thought that might suck some drama out of these first few episodes...boy was I wrong.
This season looks to have promise after 1 episode.
It's easy to see why Boston Rob is back for a 4th time, and Russell back for a 3rd. They both are just made for TV, and their presence provided very compelling content to the episode.
The newcomers seem interesting as well, and a few stood out, none more than the bat-shit crazy Phillip..."I'm a former Federal Agent!"...I think I'll be hearing that in my sleep.
My full episode recap will be up by 10:00 am EST, so check back or subscribe by then. I'll leave you with
I'm a contributing writer this season to TheTVKing.com, a very cool website that will also feature full episodes of Survivor once the season is underway. Here is my first article for them, a preview of Redemption Island. Each Thursday I'll post an analysis for TheTVKing.com, which will link to my Survivor Examiner Full Episode Recap. Don't worry, all my content links back here to FilmSurvivor!
