Survivor 26: Breaking Down the #survivorbreakdown -- Episode 5 Recap/Analysis
(NOTE: We discuss the 'Next time on ... Survivor' segment and the web previews towards the end of the show, so be aware of that if you want the next episode to remain a total mystery)
For better or for worse, people are finally talking about this season. Beyond the obvious questions - why things went this far, whether this could have been avoided, and so on - viewers and producers alike are forced to answer some more uncomfortable ones: whether it was irresponsible to invite Brandon back, what this says about Brandon's character and the culture of the Hantz family, and what this means for the show long-term. If you want to hear a more qualified voice talk about these issues, Coach gave us his thoughts on a parallel segment here; our take can be found on the player below, here, or on iTunes here.
