Would You Participate in a ‘Survivor’ Summer Book Club?

UPDATE: Alright, seems like enough people are into this to make it fun. So, pick up your copy of “Survivor: Vanuatu” from Amazon or iTunes or whatever. Then watch the first episode. I’ll post my thoughts and some discussion points on Wednesday, May 30th.

I’ll never forget that hot June evening; drinking cold beers outside of a tent in Gabon, Africa, listening to members of the press corps who knew way more about “Survivor” than I did.

I remember thinking, “Holy s$%t, I’m out of my league.”

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been a fan since day one. But I’d never watched the show with a hyper-critical eye. So, I started rewatching seasons whenever I had downtime. Borneo, Palau, Micronesia, Australia, Guatemala…

It was during my December/January rewatch of “Survivor: Thailand,” that the idea was floated that this become more of an interactive project.

Here’s what I’m thinking. We set a date in the not-too-distant future to start. This will give time for interested parties to procure copies of “Survivor: Vanuatu” from Amazon or iTunes or whatever. Then every Wednesday I’ll post my thoughts on the episode. (Not a full-on recap, just some talking points.) Then we can discuss the episode in the comment section below.

Interested? Drop me a line below and let me know…

    This could help with the summer withdrawal pangs!

    Definitely in. I’m a recent convert to deeper analysis of Survivor (along psych/soc/anthro lines), so revisiting Vanuatu and kicking it around would be great.

    That would be great — I was going to pick up a season to watch during downtime anyway.

    I’d be down, as long as there’s some type of podcast or recap show. I’d love to hear your thoughts as well as some behind the scenes stuff if you know it.

    Great idea! Why not start with season 1 though?
