UPDATE: Alright, seems like enough people are into this to make it fun. So, pick up your copy of “Survivor: Cook Islands” from Amazon or iTunes or whatever. Then watch the first episode. I’ll post my thoughts and some discussion points on Wednesday, May 29th.
(Recycled from last year) 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. To catch up I started rewatching seasons whenever I had downtime. Borneo, Palau, Micronesia, Australia, Guatemala…
(New for this year) So, last year I launched the “Survivor” Summer Book Club where every Wednesday I would post my thoughts on an episode of “Survivor: Vanuatu.” Then, like-minded “Survivor” fans discussed the episode in the comment section below. I found the project very rewarding as many of the participants were hitting angles that I’d never considered.
Interested in a second round? Vote in the poll below to let me know which season we should do. This will give me a feel for how many people want to participate. If enough people are into it, I’ll announce the winning season the day after the “Survivor: Caramoan” finale and we can get started on May 29th.
Note: These seasons are the ones I haven’t rewatched recently…
