Both Survivor and The Amazing Race have been renewed for another season. Makes me happy that we will have at least 2 more seasons of both shows, and I still have a chance of becoming a contestant.
There was no Amazing Race last week and none tonight due to the NCAA Basketball Tournament on CBS. Did catch a bit of the Villanova game last night. Rooting for them to make the final 4.
I found last weeks episode of Survivor a little boring. Nothing much happened as the tribes get ready for the merge. Hopefully this will get things rolling, and add some excitement. There are still 3 idols that can be played, and with the super idol, we could end up with some fascinating tribal councils down the stretch. I am also looking forward to the Ponderosa Videos once players start getting sent to the jury. Find them a great companion to the show. As stated before, I am not a big fan on reading things about Survivor or The Amazing Race on the internet (other than Jeff Probst’s weekly interview with EW). I like to be surprised and experience the show as it happens instead of reading or seeing spoilers.
Only 2 episodes of The Walking Dead left this season. While I still really enjoy the show, I feel it has started to become to predictable, and reminds me of some of the 1980 and 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movies where he enters a room with lots of bad guys all trying to kill him, firing guns at him from all directions, and he casually shoots them all, and walks out without a scratch. At some point they need to have luck go against some of the Walking Dead characters. Not that I want some of them to die, but at least get hurt or suffer a little.
Saw this on my way to work. Thought the logo was kind of freeky
And finally, here is a picture of Buzzwinkle, a moose in Anchorage Alaska that would eat crab-apples, get drunk and wander around town. Heard about him while listening to This American Life on NPR, and it made me laugh.
