    Love After Lockup: Life After Lockup

    Let's see - Sarah is going to the hospital to be 'inducted' (her words last episode). I have no idea how long that takes. But Michael tells her he wants to be there to see the birth of his child this time. OK. But Sarah is still in NY, right? So setting aside the obvious problems of the ankle monitor, travel restrictions, and lack of a driver's license he gets in the car to drive there. (Unless the producers are faking us out.) Just one additional problem. If Sarah is indeed still in Farmington NY, the shortest driving distance between them is 354 miles. Assuming normal speeds, not stopping for a drug deal, not going an hour in the wrong direction, and avoiding any desperate Texas virgins along the way, that's a 5 hour, 30 minute drive. Might make it there in time for the birth. Maybe. But... That route goes through Canada. Which ain't gonna happen with no passport or ID. So a route that stays in the US would involve going through south to Ohio, then through Pennsylvania and western New York. That's more likely a 12-hour drive or so. I don't know if Sarah's 'induction' is going to last 12 hours or more but considering it's not her first child, I'd say probably not. So the chances of Mikey the Magnificent being there for the birth of his most recent spawn are low. All of which is to say - does this mental mastermind really think it's possible to be there for the birth? Or is he just looking for any excuse to get away from his family & house? Or are the producers messing with us? I keep going back and forth each episode thinking all these people can't really be this stupid. But then they keep proving me wrong.

    S04.E06: Knot Today, Anchors

    It's 'wrap'. In the TV/Film industry, when a shoot is finished there is typically a party to celebrate the conclusion. As in, "That's it, we're done! It's a wrap." And then a party follows. Although in this case, since the young girl was also supposed to be a 'rapper' it was confusing.

    I know, that was weird. But it was her first name: Chakakhan Something. It was shown that way in one of the captions and every time someone said it I did a double-take.

    S04.E01: Pardon Your French

    Now, I don't know nuthin' 'bout no Cordun Blue cookin' but I does know TexMex like a champ and that there crap they was servin' ain't it. Cain't remember if'n the guests actually asked fer TexMex, as opposed to real Mex but even so... that there shit the li'l ol' Russki lady served up just about made me barf up a habanero. I mean, I learnt to not expect good Mexican food any time I leave my beloved Texas fer someplace in the North. Like Oklahoma or Arkansas. Them folks just don't get it right. So askin' fer tacos in that there France place is just askin' fer a whuppin'. Food-wise, that is. It'd been a whole lot smarter to just ask fer local food. Like French fries. Duh.

    S38.E15 Survivor: Edge of Extinction Reunion

    Fabulous idea. And it would be an excellent rule for other reality shows, as well.

    S38.E12 Awkward

    Me too! I always think it makes people look more worser when they can't write or talk using proper English.

    S38:E09 Y'all Making Me Crazy

    Indeed. And in the last two challenges, he was the first to drop out. I'm pretty sure there were others. Which makes this line in his bio all the more hilarious: It's been a long time since there was such a self-professed alpha male who failed so miserably at the very thing they claim to master. Okay, so maybe the physical side isn't really his thing after all. That must mean he's really good at the mental and strategic side of the game. Oh, wait...

    S38:E09 Y'all Making Me Crazy

    I just found a brief mention of it in her bio on the CBS website, but I don't think it's been mentioned on the show. Apparently she and her brother were taken from their biological mother and grew up in foster care. https://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/cast/216068/

    S38.E07: There’s Always a Twist

    Maybe. But I just have this awful feeling that he would then turn the whole thing around and proclaim to everyone how incredible it was that the first player voted out of the game did this unbelievable job of fighting all the odds and pulling off the most amazing comeback of all time, beating all the favored players and truly embodying the real spirit of the show by putting together the greatest Survivor victory ever!! And then announcing that they're going to do another Edge of Extinction season. Well, in the words of Fargo's Sheriff Margie Gunderson, "I'm think I'm gonna barf."
  12. As mentioned earlier, this is from the Entertainment Weekly interview with Probst: "Aubry gets blindsided with an idol and an advantage in her pocket. Are her idol and advantage still in play and available for her to use should she make it back into the game? Nope. Both of them are done. Bye-bye. El gonzo." https://ew.com/tv/2019/03/21/survivor-jeff-probst-edge-of-extinction-double-tribal-council/
  13. At the Final Four challenge - Probst: Come on in guys! Ready to get to today's immunity challenge? This will determine who goes to the final Tribal Council for the chance to win One. Million. Dollars. On my 'Go' you will quickly write down your response to one simple task. Last person to finish does not win immunity, is not safe at tonight's tribal council, and will be the 15th person voted out of Survivor: Edge of Extinction. OK? Here it is: Spell 'Lauren'. GO!
  14. This. Over the years, things have progressed from no verbal communication at all during tribal to actually getting up and walking away for a group confab. While we viewers sit and wait. <yawn> In Survivor days of yore, one of the great things at TC was when an alliance's carefully crafted plan went down the tubes due to some revelation during questioning. Then there would be a scramble to decide how to respond. At most, we'd see some winks or silently mouthed words trying to indicate whether the original plan was still on. Now they just get together and discuss it in depth. I don't know how this trend got so out of hand, but I wish Probst would stop it.
