Survivor Guatemala Rewatch Part 4

08/10/2012

In case you missed it here is Part 1 , Part 2 and Part 3

Final Six episodes 12-14

Items went pretty cheap early in the auction. I don’t why they let Danni get the advantage for the immunity challenge. They only made half-hearted attempts to block her from getting it. Rafe, Danni and Lydia seem to have used their time away well. The way they setup Judd was a pleasure to watch. Now it is questionable how much Lydia knew before she started game talking to Judd on the ruins. I have more respect for players who fight to save themselves than ones who sit back and take it. The kicker is Rafe lets Stephenie think it was her idea to get rid of Judd.

Survivor Guatemala Rewatch Part 3

In case you missed it here is Part 1 and Part 2

Early Merge episodes 8-11

I guess I was wrong about the ex Yaxha guys and what their plans were after the merge. I guess there was more plans being made than I seen but it also could be that they had no choice but to stick together. The hidden immunity idol makes it debut. This version is extremely weak compared to version 2 and 3. This version is a dud as far as I am concern and doesn’t have the bite of its cousins. It is to easy to counter because all the alliance has to do is set up a list of back up votes if it is played.

In cased you missed it here is Part 1

Post Switch Episodes 4-7

I like how they did the tribe switch up in this season. Where it came out of no where for the players and I am guessing the people at home. They could have tipped their hand in the previews though I don’t know.

Unlike the first three episodes I am seeing more solid alliances forming in the two camps. Everything seemed more vague before with some pairs floating about. This could be because except for the pairs none of the pre switch alliances lasted so the editors probably did not waste time on showing them.

Survivor Guatemala Rewatch Part 1

07/30/2012

This one is going to be longer than the Amazon post as I am typing  my thoughts out as I go rather than waiting till the end. So I going to break this into multiple parts.

The visuals for this season are amazing and that is why I picked this to be my second rewatch season. The thing is I remember very little about season. The things I remember most are the brutal 11 mile trek and the last 4 or 5 episodes. I don’t know if that is a good or bad thing. I will see now on to the main event.

Pre Switch Episodes 1-3

Consider the returning player thing has been used a few times in recent years I have no feeling on Bobby Jon and Stephenie returning. I didn’t have no problem at the time either. One funny thing was when Stephenie joined Yaxha Brian said “With her we are never going to lose” I thought “Damn dude did you even watch Palau”.

These are thoughts I had watching the season again after many years.

Pre Merge

In the beginning Jenna was more of a mystery than the rest of the cast.
Christy gave off a woe as me vibe that didn’t appeal to me. Luckily she seem to adjust better after the merge into a person more enjoyable to watch.Rob seems awkward during the early parts of the game the tribe mix up help him alot.
