Survivor is an interesting show. It was the beginning of reality TV as we know it and for its first few years on the air, I tuned in with my family to watch. After about the seventh season, I drifted and would watch The Amazing Race instead. Then, once that became repetitive and the competitors less likable, I began watching dramas like House, M.D. and most recently, with the resurgence of comedy, 30 Rock and Community.
However, Hulu.com and all of its awesomeness enabled me to see Survivor: Samoa (season 19) right on my computer. I was hooked again. It was no surprise after the announcement of next season, Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, I was going to try to continue to be a dedicated viewer. As predicted, I have been and I'm even watching it on the actual TV with my brother and mom. If you watch it, too, I don't know if it was a mistake to vote out Coach now, but he did nothing to influence anyone any other way to save his behind so basically "too bad, so sad," he's gone. I'm excited to keep watching. I hope the Heroes can keep riding their high until the merge of the tribes.
Now off to watch The Mentalist. Simon Baker is gor-geous!
Oooh, and book club gathering tomorrow! :D
