Survivor

March 4, 2007

Recently got the 1st season of Survivor on DVD from the library. Wanted to see how different it is from then to now. Oh my, what a difference.

The neivety (sp?… stupid French words) of the players (with the exception of Hatch and his cohorts). The sloppy editing. The way too long dramatic slo-mo’s. The introduction for each episode that takes 10 minutes. Jeff’s non-confidence. Jeff’s actually being nice and sympathetic to the players. The differences are astounding.

But the simple fact that the overall premise and style of the game hasn’t changed these ten or so seasons and the fact that the challenges are still incredibly well thought out and down right cool, speaks to the genius of Barnett and his crew. Reality TV definitely got famous with the right show.

    The best season was Australia. I think it was maybe the third season? It was the first one I saw and all others are judged by it in my mind.

    Yeah, same goes for Survivor Marquesas in my mind. I’m still bitter that Pappy and Nelea got eliminated by a stinkin’ draw of a colored rock. That was just plain dumb.
