Last Night’s “Survivor”: Stone Cold Stud

5 December 2013 5:35 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »


Too crazy. Help me God, this episode of Survivor was too crazy. It’s a labyrinth within a spiral within a mirrored room within crazy. It’s the “Windmills of Your Mind” of Survivor. It was crazy. Gnarls Barkley “Crazy ” + Patsy Cline “Crazy” + Seal “Crazy” + that Kirsten Dunst movie Crazy/Beautiful (since Hayden is still hot and here). Let’s just break it all down and stop exclaiming “Crazy!” twenty times. But that said: Crazy! Aasvashfasdfh!

1. Caleb’s elimination is a big bowl of southern-fried depression.

I’m sorry, but there must be something slightly disappointing getting on Survivor, the ne plus ultra of reality programming, and fighting for your survival by stacking cards in the sand like a bored child on the Fourth of July. I mean, Big Brother challenges are definitely more physically demanding than that. Project Runway challenges might be more physically demanding than that. Tim Gunn »

“Survivor” Recap: Biggest Mistake Ever? Yes.

24 October 2013 8:23 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

At the moment, Survivor: Blood Vs. Water should be called Survivor: Non-Heroes Vs. Non-Villains. Every remaining competitor is playing a low-key game (with the exception of Caleb, whose last-minute blitz on Brad Culpepper during that Tadhana tribal council is still the season’s most shocking move), and so far no one is even planning on anything nefarious or insane (with the exception of Colton, who left the game preemptively on a magic carpet made out of an oversize pink polo shirt).

Sure, Tyson is shoring up some propaganda against Aras, using backhanded remarks to make him look like an unfit teammate in front of his fellow tribesman, but that’s not exactly psychological warfare. We’re at a point where teammates who twitch too suddenly or utter anything suspicious get sent packing, and that was certainly the case on Wednesday’s episode. I hope some loudmouths start commandeering this game soon, »
