Ok, I have to tell you a secret. While I don’t watch much TV and pride myself in being into cultural things and all that, there’s one TV show I’m obsessed about to the point of writing a blog about it!
And not just any TV show, but a Reality TV show! Not the best kind of TV, I know…
By now, if you’ve read the title of the page, you understand that I’m talking about Survivor.
See, Survivor is very different from most reality shows in my opinion in that it’s first and foremost a strategy game.
In other words what I care about when I watch this show is not the people’s lives on the island, whether they’re hungry, whether they can make fire, and those sorts of things.
What I care about and the reason why I enjoy watching it is to see the strategy game unfolding, the alliances, the mind games, the blindsides and such.
In other words, it’s not the survival in the wild that I’m into, it’s the social aspect of “survival.”
This blog mostly focuses about those aspects of the show. I try to analyze and speculate about what’s going on, who’s going to do what and who’s going to be voted out the following week.
And I do it on a blog for the simple reason that none of my friends watch this show (they don’t understand why it’s interesting… fools…) so as I have nobody to chat with about the show every week, I share my thoughts to the world on this blog instead.
If you don’t care about the show, you can just go check another one of my blogs, and forget you were ever on this page.
If you’re a fan too, come join me and let’s talk about Surviving Survivor!
