I've been thinking a lot over the last few days just HOW MUCH I love this game. Even the "problems" that people have with it are based on the types of things that are versions of big life/ethical issues, the type that end up invoking some serious questions about what you would or wouldn't do in your decision making process. It brings in the questions of "what is popular and why is it become the opposite of talented in some people's minds - and what does that say about those people?" It shows up with game theory and strategy - and the nature of friendships in the face of adversity. . . and oh yeah, some INCREDIBLE writers doing their thing.
Surivor starts tonight!!! Whoo hoo!!! LOST is on right after that - which combined means I don't even answer my phone for most of the night!
Granted, Fairplay is back, but Jeff Probst did say, in an interview, that he "doesn't stand a chance to win", and considering how much he hates the guy I'm hoping that's a big hint of an early boot. PLEASE. Once he's gone I have a feeling this will be a fun season.
Oh, and back to Idol, the two folks with special powers to declare DEATH MATCHES have until tomorrow (Friday) at 11 am EST to let me know what their decision is - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org...
So what's going on with you????
