Next week bring the season finales of both Survivor and The Amazing Race (good to see that CBS renewed the Race for another year).
I have rally enjoyed both shows this Season. Found the season of Survivor very entertaining. It was interesting to see how some of the returning players changed they way they played, while others played the same game as before. It didn’t seem to matter as most of the players voted off noted how they were voted off at the same spot as their previous seasons.
I watched Machaelas’ Ponderosa Video and loved here attitude. While not the biggest fan of hers during the season, she jumped way up in my book and would actually like to see her return again in the future. Also saw that she mentioned she would like to go on “The Amazing Race”. I’m available and would volunteer in a heartbeat to go with her. (Maybe there is somebody out there reading this who can help make that happen; Hey you never know)
Speaking of the Amazing Race, I think this has been one of the best seasons in a while. I am kind of sad that its been airing on Thursdays at 9:00 PM and 10:00 PM. Maybe they will move it back to Sundays (I had now issues with it being delayed now and then due to Football; 60 Mins has followed Football for 40+ years, and seems to do OK)
As far as other TV shows that I watched this season, I really enjoyed Designated Survivor (I’ve been a fan of Kiefer Sutherland going back to his early films such as “The Lost Boys” and “Flatliners” as well as his TV shows (“24” and the under appreciated “Touch”)
I also actually liked Kevin James in “Kevin Can Wait”. Took a while to get into it, and it could be stupid at times (and a bit male chauvinistic) , but it was a great escape from things for 1/2 hour.
Also still enjoying both The Middle and Modern Family after all the years they have been on. Still smarter and funnier than most other shows
As far as sports – big weekend for my NY Mets. Need to at least take 2 or 3 from the Angels at home and straighten things out or its going to be a long summer.
