GRANTED, THEMS WAS SOME FIERY ISLANDS: I am left with two questions following the premiere of the new Survivor:
1. Who, exactly was the producer who was capable of negotiating with the locals to (a) explain to them what television was; (b) explain was 'reality tv' was; and (c) arrange for an Authentic Native Ritual that would not involve Whitey getting pummeled? Were they paid? Did they have any idea what they were consenting to? Did they get to eat the pig?
2. Is it even possible that this show's going to be interesting until they merge? I've sat through (most of) eight seasons already, and this picking-off-the-too-weak-or-too-strong nonsense is pretty tiresome already. Wake me when they get to ten or something.
