Good News

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


Would you by your produce from this guy?


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.

Remembering Buzzwinkle the Moose


Rest in Peace Buzzwinkle

  1. Only 1 season of TAR is guaranteed for the next tv cycle (could air mid-season or as late as summer 2017)…CBS always has to specify the amount in the announcement. This has happened before in 2007-08.
