Survivor Recap: That’s The Way The (Sugar) Cookie Crumbles

Posted in CBS, Humor, TV, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2008 by sgottahurt

As this season of Survivor starts picking up some serious steam (baths… at least for Susie), it’s the developing maturity of two contestants that is making the difference.  Scratch that.  I was enjoying watching Kenny and Sugar grow up into their own skin the last few weeks, but there still is some childishness left in them.

As Jeff Probst put it in his weekly, um, Entertainment Weekly blog:

…I felt badly for Randy getting played at tribal council like a banjo at a small town country fair. (Yes, I know, bad analogy and small town and country fair are probably redundant)…

It is redundant Jeff, but I make up words.  Like Randy got Sugarfied

…So why did I feel bad? Maybe there is just something about Randy that I can relate to and sympathize with. Oh, he will hate me saying it like that.

My friend Serena thinks the answer lies with Sugar and the way she handled herself as I read the votes. “Not cool.” (I think she might be right. Serena is almost always right.) That uncontrollable laugh that came from such a deep place inside Sugar was so uncomfortable that I almost wanted to pull the votes out, rearrange them, rewind the tape, and vote Sugar out…

She pulled that after the entire fiasco with the cookies.  (She spitefully took advantage of Randy’s last offer for a chocolate chip cookie so he couldn’t get one.  I’m not defending him at all, but he could have spilled the entire tray on the ground!  I bet Probst & Co. were hoping for that one.)

The thing is – my hands were sweating watching that Tribal Council.  I not only felt slightly bad for Randy, but also for Bob.  (Not Corinne, though.  I agree with what Jeff says below.)  Bob seemed like he had second thoughts about the deception, whereas with Randy, it appeared that whatever little faith he had left in humanity was extinguished with his torch.

Jeff on Corinne:

Corinne on the other hand is equally as mean as Randy but I don’t find myself rooting for her in any way. She is an original. I will give her that. Not sure we’ve ever had anybody on the show quite like Corinne. Corinne is as subtle as a thunderstorm. Subtle as the look I give a Survivor when they want to quit. Subtle as, I know, a Probst analogy.

Jerri Manthey can’t hold a candle to Corinne. Jerri had some likable qualities about her, Corinne has none. Just ask her. She’ll tell you the same thing.

And about Kenny’s immaturity – he may be controlling the game… for now,  but his choices for elimination seem to come from as equally a vindictive place as Sugar’s.

Here’s hoping what happens next: Bob, Sugar, and Matty make an alliance against Kenny, Susie, and Crystal.  (Corinne is a non-point, except for the possibility of seeing her naked.)  And it’s a knock-down drag-out fight to the finale.

In closing:

Thursday’s TV Picks

Back by popular demand…not really, I just have nothing else to do but write this.

8:00pm EST

World Series Fox – Is it bad, that it is only game 2, and I am already bored?  I guess it is true, you really do need big market teams in the finals.

Survivor: Gabon (Live) CBS – Tonight, according to the previews, Sugar is going to give the immunity idol to Ace.  I am sure this will be ripped on discussed tomorrow.

My Name Is Earl (DVR) NBC – This would be my least favorite NBC Thursday night comedy if it weren’t for Kath & Kim (DVR) – This show has potential.  It just depends if it will make it long enough to reach that potential.

9:00pm EST

The Office (Live) NBC – Best NBC comedy. Not quite as good as the BBC version (I must confess, there is something very funny about British comedy, maybe it is the accents).

SNL Update (Live) NBC (9:30) – Is it wrong that I look forward to Saturday Night Live more on Thursdays than on Saturdays?

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (DVR) CBS – Some of you may know, this is the only CSI that I count.  The others are not even on my radar.

10:00pm EST

ER (DVR) NBC – Like many people I watched in the beginning and fell off for awhile.  This is the last season so I am watching again.  Plus I have a thing for Linda Cardellini (pictured above).

Eleventh Hour (DVR) CBS– To be honest with you, I have not watched an episode yet but they are saved on my DVR.  One day I will get to them and see if I should keep it in the rotation.

Life on Mars (Live) ABC– I love this show.  That’s a lie, I am cautiously optimistic of this show.  I am a little confused.  How long can  they carry this, stuck in the past from a concussion thing, going on?  If they figure that out, without some crazy Lost like explanation, then I will love this show.

*** Note – you know the drill comment and we discuss it next time….someone please comment.
