Survivor 28: You Madea Big Mistake -- Episode 9 Recap/Analysis

(DISCLAIMER: In case you can't hear the disclaimer in the episode because of audio issues... we're having audio issues. New setup, so hopefully it should be over quickly. Bear with us, we shall overcome, etc.)



As pointless twists threaten to slam the brakes on this season, we're here with a late and belaboured discussion of this week's episode. Was there a way out for Spencer and Tasha (and Jeremy) beyond getting 'lucky' with the idol? We can give angry jeremiads about the Tyler Perry idol all we like, but how could and should it affect things? And, though Tony's safety may be ensured for now, is there enough in his bag of tricks to carry him to the finals and through a jury vote? All this, and more, on this week's show, available below, here, or on iTunes here.

Another three weeks have passed in the #BBCAN2 house and today we're back with BB14 champ Ian Terry to break it all down.

What's the optimal technique for the classic Survivor memory challenge?

Survivor 28: Episode 7 Recap/Analysis with Jay Fischer



Survivor went back to its roots this week, spending precious airtime on nerds and ninjas frolicking in the woods in search of an idol. Why such excitement over what appears to be a humdrum immunity idol, and what happened to Tyler Perry's brainchild? Following on from last week's discussion, what was Kass thinking last week and how will that carry over to future episodes? And, most importantly, what were Colin and others thinking when they convinced themselves Morgan could actually win Survivor? Velvet-voiced Survivor Historian and wise old sage Jay Fischer joins us to cover all this and more on this week's show, available below, here, or on iTunes here.

S28: Flip, Flip, Flipadelphia -- Merge Recap/Analysis


It may not always be sunny in Cagayan, but nonetheless we're back to break down the latest post-merge happenings. Sarah is dead (she's not actually dead, it's just a business tactic), yet so much remains left to be seen. Is LJ still the favorite to convert the D.E.N.N.I.S. system into sweet, sensual victory? Is Rickety Cricket (Trish) proving herself to be more than a just street rat? Where does Greenman (Spencer) stand now that the acid is wearing off? Which of the waitresses (Morgan, Jefra) are an under-the-radar front-runner? Can Tony McPoyle hold the gang hostage and take home the million? Are Jeremiah and Woo the brains, the brawn, or just the useless chicks? And what can be said of Kass's move other than WILDCARD BITCHES, YEEHAW!?
